Front Sight’s Monday Blog: Zimmerman and Front Sight
July 15th, 2013
George Zimmerman was acquitted of all charges.
I was pleased with the verdict. I believe the jury made the right decision, the only decision any juror could rationally make when presented with all the evidence and testimony.
We are innocent in this country until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
From the moment police arrived at the scene and the investigation began, Zimmerman was considered innocent. He was found by those investigating the case that he justifiably used deadly force to defend himself against serious bodily injury.
The detective who investigated the shooting, the Chief of Police and the District Attorney, after viewing the evidence believed Zimmerman was innocent of any wrong doing or they would have arrested him and prosecuted the case. They did not arrest or prosecute.
Zimmerman’s problems should have ended there, but people who should know better, people who are educated and know the law, but don’t respect the law, just wouldn’t leave an innocent man alone.
Shame on President Obama, Eric Holder, Florida Governor Rick Scott, State Attorney Angela Corey, Al Sharpton, the NAACP, the media, and all the other irresponsible people who played the race card where there was none and politically pressured the justice system into prosecuting an innocent man.
Those who are still calling for “justice” need to take a course in the Judicious Use of Deadly Force so they too will understand what the detective investigating the Zimmerman shooting, the Chief of Police, and the District Attorney all understood when they chose not to arrest or prosecute Zimmerman for justifiably using deadly force to defend himself against serious bodily injury.
We teach Judicious Use of Deadly Force at Front Sight, right along with our lectures on Criminal and Civil Liability Following the Use of Deadly Force.
For 17 years, we have prepared our students to properly handle a Zimmerman type scenario and many more situations like it.
Our students are trained to carry guns to protect themselves, their families, and those around them from unavoidable and immediate danger of serious bodily injury or death.
Our students are trained to know that the best gun fight is the one you avoid.
I’m sure that George Zimmerman, knowing what he knows now, even though he did not break any laws and was found innocent of all charges, wishes he had avoided that gun fight.
George Zimmerman’s lesson is a good lesson for all gun owners.
If you can avoid a lethal confrontation, do so.
But please do not lose sight of the fact that it is ALWAYS better to have a gun and not need it, than to need a gun and not have it.
Get a gun and GET TRAINING. Training is the key to making proper and responsible decisions in the use of deadly force and training is the key to expertly defending yourself in an unavoidable lethal encounter.
