1) Based on the 911 call he did back off. He was running trying to keep line of sight, he stops running, his breath slows down, he says "hes gone, they always get away"zimmerman was told to back the hell off the kid by dispatch till the police arrived and he apparently did not do that
2) "Are you following him?, we don't need you to do that" coming from the dispatcher is not a lawful order(the Sanford Police Department said this themselves). It was a suggestion which as far as we know Zimmerman complied with.
Zimmerman said Martin approached him as he was walking back to his truck and punched him in the face. There is no evidence that refutes this. There is however a witness that states Martin was on top of Zimmerman beating him.

I'm rereading the transcript now.
Yeah. You go in straight through the entrance and then you would go left. You go straight in, don’t turn and make a left.
He’s running. [2:08]
These assholes. They always get away.
When you come to the clubhouse, you come straight in and you go left. Actually, you would go past the clubhouse. [1:39]

Why should I provide you evidence that is new from 3 weeks ago? Haven't you had enough of poisoning the potential jury pool by trying this case in cyberspace before it even comes to trial?
Nobody here has all the facts or the forensic evidence. Only the special prosecutor and her investigative team has them all. Also, nobody here can interview witnesses and cross-examine them under oath in trial, so all your outcry to demonize the special prosecutor in favor of letting Zimmerman just walk free is just baseless.
Like I said, let this case works its way through the justice system without you crying wolf or boohoo every single moment the case came up in court for briefing.
