@vortex13: He was apparently standing and staring at the houses. I don't know, it was out of spite. I was tired and I was really stressed. Had I not been, I probably wouldn't have gotten into the argument. I'm actually not defending Zimmerman like you think I am. Evidence points to Trayvon being the innitial attacker. Zimmerman shot him in self-defense. I'm defending self-defense.
So why couldn't Trayvon be considered doing self defense? Level with me. Let's go over the scenario, once more.
Trayvon was walking home after leaving a convient store, I believe that's what they said it was. The whole, tea and skittles thing. He had his hood up while walking home. Zimmerman followed him in a truck over pure harsh judgment. I will say it's harsh judgment, because it was a kid with a hood, and he already had his mind set apparently.
First off, there's already something wrong here. Neighboorhood Watch isn't supposed to follow, only observe and call the police. So, he called the police and they told him to stop following. He did not listen to the police, which is another thing he did wrong, and continued to follow him.
Apparently, at one point, Zimmerman got out of his car, and continued to follow Trayvon by foot. The debate starts if he attacked when he was walking back or not. Trayvon attacked Zimmerman. I want to ask, why is this still being looked down upon. People say "HE COULD'VE RAN AWAY AND CALLED THE POLICE." I get this, however, like I said, he defended himself.
Both were in the wrong, if anything. Zimmerman SHOULD be more in the wrong than Trayvon is, for even following him by truck and foot after the police dispatch told him to stop. If you look it up, Zimmerman actually got denied from being a cop, or something of the sort. Also, what were we to believe he was going to do? Follow him in the truck some more? Trayvon defended himself, and Zimmerman couldn't take what he had coming to him. Zimmerman had a gun PRESSED to Trayvon's chest, and shot him.
There is a debate in the court, saying who was on top. Regardless of what you think, court still has to make the judgement on what was on top. If Zimmerman was on top, god help that pathetic waste of life.
Bottom line is, Zimmerman had a beat down coming to him after being so immature. Did Trayvon deserve to get shot? I MAJORLY disagree. He was a kid walking home with his hoodie up. Due to Zimmerman's stupidity, and lack of care, it all resulted in the death of Trayvon.
Maybe, just maybe, that certain place needs to rethink their "Stand Your Ground" law since it's completely absurd and defends such scum.
