Response to a letter-to-editor saying Trayvon Martin deserved to die.

It’s very simple. Had Martin not doubled back and violently assaulted Zimmerman because he was angry at being followed, he’d still be alive today. And I am absolutely confident that is what happened. You don’t get to turn around and start bashing someone’s head against the ground, even if you are frightened (which I don’t believe Martin was).

Jon W:
If Trayvon Martin had been a white kid who “doubled back and violently assaulted            (a black) Zimmerman)”, you would have considered Martin a hero.
Trayvon Martin was a dead man when Zimmerman spotted him.                                         You were glad Martin was murdered when you found out he was black.
You are not only a bigot. You are a fool.
If you had Treyvon Martin’s mother’s telephone number, I believe you’d call to tell her that you believe her son deserved to die.                                                                                                  Unlike you, I cannot say “I am absolutely confident” that is what you would do.
What poisoned your soul?
