    Forget the legalities, just use some common sense.
    I felt someone was following me while I was walking alone in the dark. By the time I felt his hand on my shoulder, he could have just been asking for directions and I would have acted the same. As it was, he meant me harm.

    That's exactly right. Treyvon should have gone straight home, got inside, and locked the door, then called the police...It's a tragedy he didn't do that.

    I agree.

    And GZ should never have been persistently following TM. He set forth a chain of events and is responsible for his current misery.

    Not guilty of murder, but responsible for his own misery.

    I think we agree for different reasons...The facts of the TM case have no bearing on what a douche this guy is today. And being responsible for his own misery is absolutely true, but that is because he apparently needs some counseling to address his issues...I won't get into the TM case all over again, that is settled, and a jury has spoken...Now, let's hope that the Justice system does the right thing here.

    Yes, that would have been the mature smart reaction but were talking about a 17 year old male. I don't know about you but when I was 17-18 yrs old I thought I was bulletproof and would never turn down a fight. I had too much bravado and would really do some stupid things.
    What is a shame that the older combatant in this fight didn't take the adult role there.

    What we are seeing here is not a new Zimmerman's side but this is the real George people are finally seeing. Living up to the little man complex of wanting to be the tough guy. Just like alcohol induced testosterone some get gun induced testosterone.

    Irrelevant. You're thinking emotionally, and not rationally.

    You have no right to privacy in public until someone is actually threatening you, and walking down the road behind you is not a threat in a legal sense.

    Trayvon was not a child, he was old enough to enlist in the Marine Corps... And maybe he shoulda

    Nor is it illegal to walk to the store and back. Trayvon's only crime was that he had the wrong skin color for GZ. You know thugs like Trayvon always get away with it, right?

    I still am unsure what really happened.

    Maybe so, but I don't see anything wrong with what we know Zimmerman did that night. Is neighborhood had suffered multiple break-ins he spotted someone who he thought look suspicious for whatever reason, he phoned the police and then decided to follow that guy to give the police updated information as to where he was going. Probably somewhere along the line confronted trade on and asked him who he was. As I've said it when I moved into my new neighborhood The first two weeks a new neighbor would asked me who I was and what I was doing. I live on an island close to a rural community, and to get to the island you take a dead end road over a bridge that goes to the center of this island and one morning I went for a walk down this county road to the center of the silent and two different people came out and asked me who I was, why? Because I was a new face and it's not normal for people to just wander that direction you take that road because it goes only to that island. And I like that, it means that if someone is just perusing around my house now my neighbors might go and ask them who they are and I want them to do that. And literally I'm the only person in this community who's under the age of like 50. So of course I'm going to be under scrutiny when I just moved in here

    TP in someone's house is a stupid thing a teenager does, driving to fast having drunken parties, beating someone's head when they're on the ground it is not something stupid a teenager does it something a criminal does

    Yeah, the more we know about this guy's propensity for violence the more we know that Trayvon was murdered outright.
