I would deserve it.
You should expect justice by the law, but that's not an answer anyway. Which of the above is free speech, is the question.

I have no idea what you mean by this post, but I am very content with the fact that Zimmerman's address has been made public (much the same way the addresses of sexual predators are made public), both for the benefit and safety of those who have to live near him, and as a warning to him that he cannot leave his house and make a move in public without being watched.
Who is going to prevent Zimmerman from killing more children, if not citizens themselves? Not the police, obviously.
In order to prevent him from killing children, people need to know his whereabouts at all times.

The question was very simple. Who would not feel threatened by some unknown posting his whereabouts everywhere for all people to reach out and touch him? An example is Obama's kids' Mexican vacation being kept from the public. Zimmerman has not been tried, so I would suggest to all sane people to back off trying to "hang" him.

His whereabouts has been public knowledge for over two weeks, and nobody has attempted to do anything to him.
He is an admitted child killer, whether convicted or not, and the public has a right to know if he's living in their goddamned neighborhood, just the same as they'd have the right to know if a sexual predator were living there. People have a right to protect themselves and their kids from danger, and they can't do that without knowing the whereabouts of dangerous persons in the community.
I also like the idea, as I stated previously, that Zimmerman can't leave his home and go out in public without being watched (or at least thinking he's being watched, which amounts to the same thing: he'll be unlikely to risk shooting another child any time soon).

I don't believe for a second that tailing a known killer is going to stop him from killing again if he so desires. But be my guest and knock yourself out. I've already said before what the only deterrent to someone killing again is.

Well, lucky for Zimmerman you're the only one who thinks so, or else he'd be dead by now, instead of under observation.

So you want Zimmerman dead or just under permanent observation? And how is it lucky for Zimmerman about what you think I mean? A determined assassin or vigilante is not going to blather like a jack ass on any forum about anything.

You are the one who made this statement: "I've already said before what the only deterrent to someone killing again is."

By "only deterrent", I was assuming you weren't referring to taking them out for an evening of Skee-ball at Chuck E Cheese.
Forgive me if I misunderstood your implication; I took it to mean killing them, and that is why I made the comment that it's a lucky thing for George Zimmerman that others don't share your belief, or else he'd no longer be alive.

What a rash and childish comment! Sexual predators have been convicted. This man has not. And even if he had committed a crime tweeting his address in light of the hubub over this?
Shame on you. There is no room for vigilantism in a civilized society.

The only deterrent for a killer is death, yes, but my saying it does not mean 100 percent of the mob rulers disagrees with me.

Before somebody else goes off on a tangent, a killer imprisoned in something weaker than an oubliette CAN kill again.
