It is nothing but an excuse used by those who do not like the verdict they are referring to.
In Zimmerman's case, there was no evidence that would have supported a conviction under the law. None.
Given what was known, there was no evidence that would have supported a conviction.
A conviction is. So tell us if you know what he was actually convicted of? In regards to what you posted, nothing.
And while Trayvon did not have a criminal record, that was because the school's policy of suppressing such activity to falsely represent the stats, not because he wasn't involved with actual criminal activity.
No that is not a fact. Zimmerman refused EMT transport to the hospital and he saw doctor the next day (the only reason he saw a doctor was for a return to work statement) and that doctor said it was possible but Zimmerman refused to have it x-ray'd or to see an ENT specialist to confirm.
The evidence suggests that, or that he laid in wait. There is nothing outside of those possibilities.
Even the witness heard running down towards the area Zimmerman was. That is highly suggestive of Trayvon returning just as Zimmerman claimed. In a place where he was not seen, he then was there yelling at Zimmerman and approaching in a hasty fashion. He was there, then he was here.
Trayvon had been looking into homes, which is suspicious and deserving of further scrutiny.
Once being caught doing so, he continued on his way back to the place he was visiting. Which is not evading anything accept being seen looking suspicious.
He knew he was being observed and followed.
In response he circled the individual (an act of intimidation).
Which he then stopped and hurried off and went between the buildings.
Zimmerman got out and followed in the same direction to keep eyes on Trayvon and to get an address.
As he passed the area Trayvon had gone, he looked for him, but Trayvon was not anywhere to be seen.
Zimmerman then continued past the open area of the T to look for an address. Upon his return to the open area of the T, Trayvon came out of the area where he had not been, yelling at him and approached in a hasty fashion.
Trayvon coming out of a place he had not been, to confront Zimmerman in the manner he did, is not standing your ground.
