Show me in the law where it is considered a crime to follow someone without a court order saying you cannot follow said person? I am glad you were there to see that what Zimmerman was doing was stupid and unnecessary. In light of the recent problems with burglaries in his neighborhood and little being done by the police, he had a legitimate reason to follow any stranger in the neighborhood and find out his intent. I would have done the same and would have been armed also but I would have questioned Trayvon from a distance so he could not attack me. If Zimmerman did anything stupid it was losing sight of Trayvon before engaging him.
