Comment: I agree...but...

(See in situ)


I agree...but...

He should not have gotten out of his car.... and he should not have pursued this kid... Self defense is hard to prove when you are one on one in the night and you are no longer on your own property... I would support Zimmerman 100% if he called police and then defended his home...or at least did not engage Trevon while out of his car with a loaded weapon on common ground... I would feel threatened also if someone was following me... He was not too smart... Do I think he deserves murder....no... But he should have used more sense... and armed neighborhood watch programs should not exist... I am ALL for armed home protection... But in this society we have law enforcement officers that take it to the streets... I believe he was defending himself...but if I go out and jump into a gang fight and blow away a kid in my neighborhood...because he assaulted me...wasn't I out of line in the first point? I think this case is important...I think people need to establish where the line in the sand is...and it is not - in my opinion - down the street in my neighborhood....
