    Including Zimmerman who confessed he went after Martin. That was what led to Martin's murder. If Zimmerman is found to be guilty of a crime, it will likely stem from that. Had he just called police and left it to the police to handle, as he was supposed to do, none of this would have happened.

    And that is the part I can't get past....Police were on their way, and Zimmerman continued to pursue after being told by the dispatcher that he didn't need to do that...I think if anything damning during a trial would mitigate this as being avoidable, it will be that.

    Zimmerman had just gone through an extremely traumatic experience, and arrested for it, which is in itself another traumatic experience.
    He was then immediately questioned at the station.
    He could not have been of the mind or even had the time to concoct some lie that would stand up the peppering of questions.
    Your scenario is unfounded.

    No, they don't.

    Someone operating in the capacity of NW and keeping a suspicious person under observation until the police arrive.
    There is nothing wrong about that conduct.

    So that is what it is, "The MaggieD test". lol

    Yes it does.
    You would have to ignore the evidence that Trayvon's girlfriend has provided to say something like this.

    Zimmermon acting in the capacity of NW and trying to keep Trayvon under observation is not wrong, and therefore can not be used as the impetus for wrong doing. Trayvon Martin attacking, or just confronting Zimmerman from behind in such a tense situation, can.

    The evidence does not contradict Zimmerman's statement. Trayvon started it by attacking Zimmerman who was on his way back to his truck.

    Going after someone as in following to keep them under observation is not wrong.

    Good luck explaining to a jury that he should be entitled to get off on self-defense after ignoring the advice he received from calling 911.

    "You don't need to do that sir..." That will be played over, and over, and over.

    That is what the defense for Zimmerman is counting on, however, what is causing such confusion is that those defending Zimmerman are making out Martin to be some thug kid, that attacked Zimmerman, when there isn't one of us that wouldn't be spooked by some stranger following us, and hell might even confront that person to see who they are, and why they are following...

    Bottom line at this moment is an old saying, "when two bad decisions meet, nothing good happens."
