Zimmerman actively followed Martin against Police advise, and his comments give us an indication of his mindset. The one that tells me he was looking for a confrontation is: "These assholes they always get away." I was willing to admit PART of my problem with this case is about guns. But I am sure no conservative will admit the same. This is the perfect scenario for the "have a gun for self defense" advocates. The dead give away is the way conservatives portray the fight as a life or death struggle for poor coward Zimmerman. Fist fights rarely end with one person dead. But when a gun is introduced into the fray, the odds are someone will die. That is not the America I was raised in. IMO, this sets a precedent for someone to shoot and kill, then claim you were attacked.
