No politics here and I'm not taking sides, but here are some lessons we should all learn from the Zimmerman/Trayvon case:
1. Don't be a volunteer vigilante with a loaded gun
2. If you do volunteer to be a vigilante then maybe you should carry a loaded gun
3. Don't mouth off to creepy strangers
4. Don't punch creepy strangers
5. If you are from Miami gardens don't look like you are from Miami Gardens while walking through a gated upscale community, especially if you don't have a gun, body guard, Mom present, or an attorney present.
6. It's sometimes better to run like hell than turn to fight
7. It's sometimes good to listen to the police when they tell you to do something
8. Get a good lawyer if you get into trouble, always.
9. Tell the truth
10. Keep your mouth shut
11. Stay out of trouble
12. Don't look for trouble
13. Communicate better, for instance "I think you are a crook that's why I'm following you and I have a loaded gun" or "I only want to get home to papa with my skittles and I'm not a crook although you may think I am".
14. Sometimes tragedies are faulted on many sides, not just one.
15. Pre-record yourself screaming now and post to the cloud, it may come in handy one day.
