    You can't "confront" someone if you're actively trying to get away from them.

    When and if they catch up with you after pursuing you, you aren't "confronting" them when you stand your ground.

    What we have here is a case of standing your ground, and a criminal then gunning down the lawful citizen who was rightfully standing their ground.

    Zimmerman is toast...TOAST I said!

    You would convict someone without seeing any of the evidence. I am sure of that.
    When the alleged victim is black.
    I prefer to see all of the evidence and any witnesses before I reach a conclusion that a defendant is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
    Something about The United States Constitution that clearly states Zimmerman is PRESUMED innocent.
    I know the presumption of innocence is a difficult standard to comprehend when one's judgment is clearly grounded with prejudices and bias be they black or white.
    I saw this in the 60s with whites and now I see it with blacks.

    I support Due Process here, and a full account of both their past histories. I bet the Kid comes out allot cleaner than the shooter. Lets see how many people come out as witnesses against Zimmerman from past altercations?

    I think the guy is guilty of murder. It also sounded like the kid was whipping the shit out of a wannabe super cop. Zimmerman was told to stop by a 911 operator, he did not. He instigated this and he should be held accountable for his part. Then you have the cowards and scum who go straight to race. They dont make it any better. Wonder how much money they are making on this poor kids death.

    Presumption of innocence means that an accused must be granted a trial before he can be judicially punished. It doesn't mean that you need to have a trial to prove their guilt before you can arrest and charge them.

    What evidence would you like to see? Have you seen enough evidence to be convinced that Zimmerman shot the kid? Have you seen enough evidence to be convinced that the kid died from the shooting? Have you seen enough evidence to be convinced that Zimmerman pursued the kid? What more do you need?

    I love how you HAVE to play semantics just to get a smidgeon of leeway on this.

    Keep it up. :clap2:

    He needs to see video evidence of Zimmerman assassinating the kid in cold blood, then a jury saying "guilty", until that happens, we should not say anything or do anything about the case.
