If zim is guilty . will women shoot a rapist even though they can be charged with murder?

will you protect yourself or your children at the risk of life in prison? Will a guilty verdict change the prospect of self defense for rape ?

Update:

Would it be hard to prove that the rape is going to kill you ? Rape is not life threatening !

Update 2:

Would it be hard to prove that the rape is going to kill you ? Rape is not life threatening !

    Depends, look at Aileen Wournos. Should she have been found not guilty because she claimed she was raped and, or self defense. How about a psycho lured and killed your son and claim its because the victim was afraid of being raped. What if you found out the so called victim followed your son, before the rape, and the victim made false reports before. So it depends on the situation I guess.

    I haven't been following the case, and this probably isn't going to be the "best answer" but Zimmerman phoned the police, and was told to stop following Trayvon Martin, there was really no reason for him to shoot a child. I really don't see this verdict leading to women being charged with murder in attempted rape cases.

    If he is found guilty, it doesn't negate the entire principle of self-defense, it would just mean that that jury believed Zimmerman was wrong. Women don't go looking for rapists, or get out of their cars and follow someone they think could be one.

    If they lie like Zimmerman, then they probably would go to prison. Still makes me laugh, that connies need a gun to protect themselves and their family. It is a miracle they ever leave their bunker.

    Leftists believe that you don't have a right to defend yourself, you must call the appropriate government agency, OR be dead or comatose before you can proceed to self protect. I mean, just who do you think you are, deciding on your own, that you may be in harms way and take the law into your own hands and kill one of the members of the collective without consulting the proper authority first!

    They may think twice now - and that extra time they take to "think twice" - may be nail in their own coffin.

    no they can get away with it because of female privilege

    Based on the prosecution's argument...since they aren't likely to die, they should just take it and not get all upset and shooty over it.
