Anyone wondering what I'm talking about start here:
The Psychology of Persuasion
What is funny is that you keep bringing up what is not possible within the evidence.
We have already been over this and you know you are wrong.
As he was not seen in the immediate area when Zimmerman passed the first time, he was either laying in wait, or came back down from where he was and then confronted Zimmerman on his pass back to his vehicle. Any way you look at that, it is a purposeful confrontation by Trayvon and had nothing to do with a gun.
And keep in mind, both Zimmerman and Rachel confirm it was Trayvon confronting Zimmerman first.
Now we have one witness who said she heard running going in the direction where Zimmerman said he was located. That goes to the underlined above.
And this confrontation was about Zimmerman following him.
Zimmerman indicated that Trayvon approached in a hasty manner (he was there, and then he was here) and was asking his question on approach in a hostile way (yelling). (that is attacking)
Zimmerman look up and was immediately knocked down.
You want to suggest that somehow Trayvon saw Zimmerman's gun and struck him for that when he was already in the process of attacking. Which is ridiculous and not in accord with the evidence.
Trayvon's initial confrontation (question) that occurred in the process of his attack was heard by Rachel. Which was about being followed. Not about a gun you want to suggest he may have seen.
Had he seen the gun just prior to striking Zimmerman, he would have made some type of exclamation that Rachel also would have heard. Yet none was heard. She says that she even heard more after the initial confrontation, none which had to do with any thing about a gun.
Then seconds later when John came out and told him to stop, which Zimmerman heard (meaning Trayvon would have to), Trayvon never once indicated to John that he needed help because the guy had a gun, or that he wasn't going to stop because the guy had a gun. Which is something that would have been said. Instead he ignored him just like an attacker would do.
No. Given the evidence we have, his attack had nothing to do with seeing any gun, but with his dislike of being followed.
Trayvon was playing his own little game of knockout and most likely being egged on by Rachel.

So this just came out -
George Zimmerman girlfriend: I did not set him up - Orlando SentinelUPDATED: George Zimmerman's girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, has refused to appear on camera until she gets a paid national interview, WKMG-Channel 6 reported Wednesday night.
WKMG's Erik Sandoval broke the story of Scheibe's personal details about her relationship with Zimmerman in a report at 11 p.m. Tuesday.
"I did actually speak to her at noon today after our story aired last night at 11," Sandoval said at 6 p.m. Wednesday. "She wants to make it absolutely clear. She says that she and her daughter did not set Zimmerman up for what happened on Monday at her home in Apopka."
She'll wait to talk until she gets a paid national interview. Charming.
Using your first, teeth, or nails in self defense isn't illegal either. The difference is ths law in Florida recognizes a distinction between getting kicked around and feeling your life is in danger. So according to the law and Zs defense, he had a right to kill because he feared for his life. The question of if his life was in actual danger, mattered little. He thought his life was in danger, and apparently, that is enough.
If the answer is "yes, no, no" then there might be a reasonable basis for why the guy doesn't like dealing with the police. That isn't a defense of anything he has done, that merely pointing out no reasonable person would want to deal with national headlined everytime they interact (not even arrested) with law enforcement.
Mason said Scheibe’s daughter received a text message from George Zimmerman. Mason said that message was a still image from an intimate home video of Scheibe and Zimmerman."
WKMG updated the story at 5 p.m. Wednesday with the headline "Intimate Details."
Scheibe told WKMG that her relationship with Zimmerman was "so intimate ... that they took intimate videos of themselves," Sandoval said. When the relationship cooled, Scheiber said Zimmerman took an image from a video "and texted it to her young daughter," Sandoval reported.
