I think the law in NC is pretty clear that when a concealed carry takes life and there was not a lethal weapon in the hands of the dead that it will be the burden of the concealed carry/shooter to prove self-defense/fear of life. The only way I know for the concealed carry to prove this point is in a court of law. Anyone disagree? I speculate that a court process is needed in most violent loss of life cases to learn the truth and make sure that no one got away with murder.

What is to stop someone from killing and claiming fear of one's life and or self-defense when the killer is a good actor?
Who decides the truth in this situation?

Here is an interesting development.

Has the media, and the activists, tried to create another Richard Jewell?

Ken Hill

Apparently this did not post on my first attempt. No duplication intended.

"Who decides the truth in this situation?"

Why has Zimmerman not been charged with a crime yet?

This site purports to post some of the police reports.

Juan Williams has an interesting op-ed piece in today's WSJ about the case. His point is where's the outrage from the Black community with respect to the "daily scourge of Black on Black crime." 70%+ out of wedlock Black births. 50%+ high school dropouts in the Black community. 50% unemployment among Black youths. Devastating.

A measured and responsible response from black youths about the Martin case:

Indeed, Sam. It does require a lot more investigation before the " Decider-In-Chief " pops off about the case.

Roger Simon takes Obama and his sympathizers to task. RTWT !

The SFTPOR

" When Barack Obama asserted – in advance of a jury trial or grand jury investigation, let alone a completed police investigation – that he identified with young Trayvon Martin, the black teenager shot and killed in Florida, it was an extraordinarily reactionary moment with possible ramifications of interference with the justice system.

But it was not surprising.

Since obtaining the presidency, Barack Obama has led a Democratic Party that would be better called The Society for the Preservation of Racism.


The reason is evident. Increasingly, racism – and more generally the division of our country into racial and ethnic interest groups — is all the Democrats have. The rest of liberal/leftist ideology is disintegrating all around them, as fragile and illusory as the welfare state itself.

Without racism – or more exactly the putative existence of racism – the Democratic Party would be an association of overpaid trade union executives, unemployed Occupy movement sympathizers and trial lawyers. In other words – mighty small. "

Toward the conclusion Simon administers the coup de grace.

" So most of us were therefore unsurprised when Obama injected himself almost instantly into the Martin-Zimmerman Affair. He just couldn’t resist, just as he couldn’t resist injecting himself when the Cambridge police had the most minor dust-up with Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates.

Racism had to be preserved. It just couldn’t go away. "

Ah yes. Manson guilty, Nixon declares.

Reaching out , touching you, touching me

"His failure to respond to three letters sent to the White House was because there was no "political value" and not worthy of a few minutes of his time.

They spoke out as teenager Shawn Tyson began a life sentence after being found guilty of the murder of James Cooper and James Kouzaris last April.

The 17 year old, who shot the men as they begged for their lives, will die in prison.

His conviction of first degree murder carries an mandatory life sentence without the chance of parole.

The powerfully built teen even looked bored as emotional DVD presentations about the dead men prepared by their grieving parents were shown in court.

Tyson, who has the word 'Savage' tattooed across his chest didn't show a flicker of emotion, slumping in his seat as he was forced to watch a montage of photos showing the victims from early childhood to young men.

Two close friends of the dead men who had attended the eight day trial in Sarasota, Florida. had also delivered highly emotional impact statements to the court prior to the sentencing.

Paul Davies and Joe Hallett spoke of the "living hell" they and others who knew the men had suffered since the murders.

During the eight day trial they had been shown graphic crime scene and autopsy photos shown in court.

Later speaking after Tyson was jailed Davies and Hallett lashed out at Mr Obama saying the deaths of their friends was "not worthy of ten minutes of his time."

Davies said:"We would like to publicly express our dissatisfaction at the lack of any public or private message of support or condolence from any American governing body or indeed, President Obama himself.

"Mr Kouzaris has written to President Obama on three separate occasions and is yet to even receive the courtesy of a reply.

"It would perhaps appear that Mr Obama sees no political value in facilitating such a request or that the lives of two British tourists are not worthy of ten minutes of his time."

The rebuke follows Mr Obama's personal intervention into the shooting in Florida of a young black teenager by a white-Hispanic neighbourhood watch captain.

The death of 17 year old Trayvon Martin has sparked nationwide protests with his supporters claiming he was victim of a racist attack.

Mr Obama entered the controversy last week by saying if he had a son he would have looked like Martin." Sigh. Barf !

We can't be surprised at that story, Fred.

After all, black on white crimes can't be used to demagogue any "progressive" agenda item talking points.

In other news, two more little boys savagely beat a 50-year old man with a hammer near Sanford, FL.

If Obama had a son, he'd look like Yahaziel Isaac Israel.
