Trayvon Martin vs. George Zimmerman
Gun saved Zimmerman’s life
I disagree with William Fite’s conclusion that no one would have died if George Zimmerman had not been armed. [“Northwest Voices: Martin vs. Zimmerman,” Opinion, July 25.]
The physical evidence presented at George Zimmerman’s trial indicated that Trayvon Martin sucker-punched Zimmerman, then beat his head against the cement sidewalk.
If Zimmerman had not been armed, there is a good chance he would have died from blunt-force trauma to the head. You don’t need a gun to kill someone, and in this case, being armed arguably saved George Zimmerman’s life.
