George Zimmerman or Bryan Stow:
Who Would You Rather Be?

Author’s Note: This column was first posted on July 11, 2013. I am posting an updated version because of the current TV mini-series on the death of Trayvon Martin titled “Rest in Power.” The trailer for the series claims that Martin was “profiled,” and that “the NRA had its thumb on the scale of justice at the trial.” So here is my attempt at an antidote to the slanted coverage.

Life is unpredictable. Sometimes we are faced with a choice we would rather not make, but we must make it. Sometimes the choice is not between good and bad, but between bad and worse. As responsible adults – assuming we are responsible adults – we face reality and make the choice. And then we live with the consequences. That’s what adults do.

The media has been filled to overflowing with commentary about the Florida trial of George Zimmerman for the killing of Trayvon Martin. Everyone from the most uninformed, self-anointed “expert” to President Obama himself has felt free to chime in with whatever came to mind.

As expected, the comments varied all the way from “Zimmerman is a racist pig who should be executed for shooting an unarmed young boy” to “Martin was a teenage delinquent who got what he deserved.” And also as expected, the truth lies somewhere in between. .......

Apart from an attempt to deal with slanted coverage, there is also a very valuable analysis of threat situations which includes the challenges involved when decisions have to be made regarding actual threat to life. Dangerous physical harm does not only come from a gun or knife - it comes in many forms which includes such things as fists, boots and about any blunt object.
