Liberalis misplaced compassion is no compassion at all - it's a mental disorder.

It's as if their compassion totally overrides their ability to be rational.

They see "17 year-old shot and killed" and immediately they know the 17-year-old is the victim and are looking for a way to crucify the person who shot him.

Uh, you can't do that. There are plenty of violent crimes committed by males 17 and younger, crimes that can be resisted via deadly force if need be. As my firearms instructor put it you have to realize that the criminal you may have to defend against could be a kid, could be a woman, could be anyone really... if you aren't prepared to shoot a kid then you might want to rethink this whole "carrying a gun for self-defense" thing because it might just come down to that.

Sure, that may be unthinkable to some... but in the society we live in kids can be violent, deadly threats. I was a football player when I was 17, I could have easily hurt and/or killed someone with my bare hands at that age. I was law abiding and never even considered it, but I wouldn't have had to have gone far to find 17-year-olds more than capable and indeed willing to do just that (I lived very close to Detroit then... who do you think is committing most of the violent crimes there? Gangs. Who are in gangs? Mostly males, and a lot of them are 17 or younger).

So, my first thought wasn't "Gotta hang the guy who shot him" but rather "There's more to this story, I wonder what the other side of it is?" That never occurred to liberals apparently... and we're the bad guys for pointing out that there not only is another side but one that arguably clears Zimmerman of any wrongdoing whatsoever.
