Yeah, this whole thing could have been avoided if Zimmerman had acted a little less like a snitch and a little more like an actual neighborhood watchman. "Hey, dude, I'm George. How's it going?" would have prevented not only Martin's death, but the chase, the fight, and the whole thing.

One of the big things that firearms training emphasizes is that guns are not magic wands. They're not going to prevent you from getting in over your head, and they're not going to automatically slay enemies or make them comply. Zimmerman had to get some kind of training to get his carry permit, but I don't know if he did an NRA certification course or something shorter. That said, it's *amazing* how stupid people can get when adrenaline starts flowing.

YOU NEED A BOOK

A POEM EVERY DAY

The collected poems from my descent into madness year spent writing daily poems are now available from Lulu as the cheapest 330-page book they would let me make ($16.20). If that's too pricey, you can also get it from Lulu as a free download, or just click on the "a poem every day" tag to read them here. But if you did buy one, that'd be awesome.
