What prompted the kid, coming home from the store, to start beating on Zimmerman? The fact that Zimmerman was following him in his car, we don’t know if Zimmerman called him over. At some point, any kid is gonna fight back when he is scared enough. That doesn’t necessarily make if self defense for Zimmerman to shoot him. And by the way, Zimmerman was described as a “self appointed” neighborhood watch captain. Does that mean he was the only neighborhood watch guy, which makes him a cop wannabe.
Even the Guardian Angels wear identifying berets and jackets to identify themselves.
“And by the way, Zimmerman was described as a self appointed neighborhood watch captain.”
He was described that way by the press, and we know they lie. He wasn’t self appointed. The residents started a Neighborhood Watch program, had someone out to speak to them about how to run it and Zimmerman was chosen by the group. Also, at the time of the incident he wasn’t patrolling, he was on a personal errand. He was legally concealed carrying. The girlfriend heard some dialog between the two. If someone appears suspicious in my neighborhood, I’d likely ask what they were doing, too. That does not warrant being assaulted. At this point we don’t know what happened after the dialog and who might have been physical first. Please try and keep up and save yourself comments that ignorant. It would be nice to see some critical thinking.
