What The Trayvon Martin Case Is Supposed To Teach Us?

Why, in a civilized society like America, do we have laws in the first place?

Gimme Three Steps by Lynyrd Skynyrd immediately came to my mind. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygausyezIOc

In Gimme Three Steps, the incident did not escalate into violence or death. Instead he said: “Wait a minute mister I didn’t even kiss her, don’t want no trouble with you, and I know you don’t owe me But I wish you’d let me ask one favor from you”: “Oh, won’t you gimme three steps, gimme three steps, mister Gimme three steps toward the door?”

The laws in America are designed to promote, foster and nourish civility. This is why WRITTEN civil and criminal statutes are on the statute books in nearly every State of the Union.

Zimmerman was on private property inside a gated community. For whatever reason, Trayvon gave him the impression that he was trespassing. Rather than use his phone to call his dad, 911 or the police, the media informs us that Trayvon carried on a conversation with a female friend.

Was Trayvon raised to walk around looking for a fight?

Was Trayvon raised, trained, taught and or groomed to make himself judge and jury of his own rights when confronted by Zimmerman or any other person who questioned him?
