    "This Mexican's looking at me, I'm gonna walk away. Ok, he's following me. I'm gonna hide behind this dumpster. <click>"

    Assuming that's the audio, imagine that Trayvon is a kid who is just defending himself. Did Zimmerman commit a crime?

    There s no way that Zimmerman could have kept up with that kid if he would have actually felt threatened, he would have been sitting in Daddy's current girlfriend's condo watching basketball eating his skittles before Zimmerman could have returned to his truck. Trayvon wanted a fight to ad to his street cred with his little 16 year old sperm catcher of the week.

    Why was Zimmermen following him with a gun in the first place ? He was just a kid walking with a tea and candy. If he was so suspicious why didn't he just report it to the police? That is what the jury will want to know.

    He did, but the police didn't get there fast enough for him.

    But the act of following..was that the role of a Neighborhood Watch person? And being armed at the time? Thanks for your answer.

    Not in my opinion, but Zimmerman claims Martin jumped HIM.

    Which may very well be true. I just wonder if that was bound to happen when someone is following you..The person turns and jumps him.

    If a person thinks he about to be mugged, perhaps the "fight or flight" response kicks in and the thought of getting the surprise attack weighs in. Just a thought.

    REALLY????? Would that be your first reaction? Why doesn't Zimmerman have the right to walk through his own neighborhood without some 6'-3" asshole visitor to that neighborhood, suckerpunching him,straddling him on the ground and essentially trying to kill him or at the very least cause him severe bodily harm? Sorry, can't buy the bending over backwards to come up with an excuse for that gangsta wannabe prick, he was a visitor to that neighborhood that had been riddled with crime perpetrated by other pricks dressed in exactly the same way. It doesn't do a bit of good to call the police if they can't find the prick to question him, Zimmerman was well within his rights as a resident to walk throughout his neighborhood without being attacked by Martin. That idiot would be alive today if he would have run to his daddy's girlfriends house and called the police from there......... what was he doing attacking Zimmerman? I'm sure the 911 operator wouldn't have recommended that either.

    By the way, there are plenty of neighborhoods in America that my caucasian ass would be killed or beaten and robbed just because of the color of my skin, that is a fact, I try to stay out of those shit holes.
