the difference is that

the difference is that zimmerman has a position of authority. he also was told directly by law enforcement to stay away from Trayvon. people who have positions of power need to be held accountable when they abuse their power. maybe zimmerman did fear for his life and felt justified in the moment (i personally think all evidence and sense points against that), but even if he did, he still needs to be held accountable for overstepping his bounds and violating an order.
