If I walk up to you at 3am and ask to see your id

You have every right to ignore me. If I then tackle you and you start kicking my butt and I shoot you in the midst of the struggle, does it matter if you were a deviant or a saint? I stopped you with no authority, hassled you, tackled you, and then killed you but my defense is you were going to hurt me with my own weapon and that you were a bad guy??
This whole story is so dumb and overblown. Zimmerman started a fight and killed someone in the course of it. I would have charged him with aggravated assault and manslaughter to make it stick. He may walk on 2nd degree murder.
