Obviously NOT Zimmerman

And I suspect NOT white. Therefore he won't receive the same type of treatment as Zimmerman has suffered for doing basically the same thing. I wonder if all these understanding people in that neighborhood who support the shooting would also support Zimmerman if they asked?

The teenager was armed and robbing the older man

The older man was not patrolling the neighborhood looking for "suspicious-looking" people. The boy approached him, pointed a gun at him and tried to rob him. The boy's neighbors (in the video) basically said that this is what can happen when you try to rob people.

Other than that, the two cases are virtually identical, LOL.

Thankfully the older gentleman didn't have to take much of a beating before shooting the perp, nor get tossed into jail for it and face a racially inspired lynch mob.

"Lynch" mob. Nice touch.

This isn't quite as much of a reach as Toni's attempt to compare Benghazi with the Final Solution, but I'll give you points for effort.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
