“The rules of the common law, therefore, which authorize a man to preserve his own life at the expense of another’s, are not contradicted by any divine or moral law. We talk of liberty and property, but if we cut up the law of self-defense, we cut up the foundation of both; and if we give up this, the rest is of very little value, and therefore this principle must be strictly attended to…”

-John Adams (about his unpopular defense of the British soldiers from the Boston Massacre)

    Yeah that unarmed black really deserved to die.

    Sorry to hear that you took this as a strike against anyone. I certainly don’t know the facts of the case. I just hope that Zimmerman gets a fair trial and not a mob trial. If Zimmerman was getting beat up then his actions were legal. If his claim that he was being beat up is a lie then he is guilty and he should go to jail for a long time. It is up to the trial lawyers, the judge, and the jurors to decide what story is the truth. It is not up to the mob to decide (hence my analogy to John Adams case on the Boston Massacre).
