"Here you all are defending a

"Here you all are defending a person of authority, a wannabe cop on a power trip, against a young man who was walking back to his dad's house and got scared when a creepy guy was following him around."
A couple of questions come to mind here...
First, at what level is Zimmerman a person of authority? Is being a volunteer in a local neighborhood watch an authority of some kind, even as a so called 'captain' in such a private organization? What authority did he have and over whom?
Second, you seem to able to see into both the motives and personal emotions of both Zimmerman and Martin. How did you achieve such crystal clear clairvoyance? Is anyone who participates in a local neighborhood watch a wannabe cop on a power trip, or just some? If it is the former, then should neighborhood watches not exist? Should private citizens in local communities not be allowed to organize in such fashion? If it is the latter, how do you know Zimmerman so well?
Third, if we grant, for the sake of argument that Zimmerman was a person of authority, then why is defending the actions of someone in authority a particularly non-libertarian thing to do? Perhaps an authority gets things right once in a while. Why not defend them when we think they do so?
"People in authority must be held a countable when they act unprofessionally, especially when their actions lead to the death of an innocent person, and when they received direct orders to stay away from that person!"
LOL! Now this is getting a bit funny. At what level was Zimmerman an authority in any profession related to this incident? Unprofessionally? Zimmerman received direct orders from whom? And was he obligated by either law or nature to obey these direct orders? Was there some obligatory authority involved in these direct orders? How is disobeying unbinding arbitrary human authority something Libertarians should not defend?

"Trayvon had every right to do what he did. He was the one standing his ground. Shame on you--defending over-reaching, disobedient authority."
Did Zimmerman initiate some kind of coercion on Martin? Is one private citizen following another private citizen in public coercion? When a private citizen is being followed by another private citizen in public, can he punch them in the nose and initiate coercion to stop it?
