Comment: So...

(See in situ)

In reply to comment: because the "unlawful act" (see in situ)

So...

....a lawful act is worth assault. Nice

I can walk into a bank (lawful), rob it (unlawful)......everyone is good....nothing else needs said. Hey, they provoked me. They had money, I didn't. I needed to get paid.

I COULD simply walk away, get a job, and better myself.

But going back seemed so fun!

After the punch, where Zimmerman went down, it was morally imperative for Martin to get away and call the police. Since he didn't, Zimmerman now has self defense. And this is just based on the "Zimmerman hit first" deal.

Some decisions have consequences, and not all of them are rainbows and kittens.
