Let's end this intelligently.
Children are taught about stranger danger. When a man is following a person around in a vehicle, one has the right to be frightened for their life,
especially when running away proved to be a exercise it futility.
According to the law, and everything that kid probably learned about from a young age about weird men following along in cars, he was definitely in
his right to stand his ground.
If Zimmerman was attacked it was because the young man was afraid. He tried to run, it didn't work. He tried to avoid him, it didn't work. Zimmerman
already had some intent in his mind when he said "They always get away". He decided to pursue a young man, minding his business, thus forcing a
Flight shoots off in the young man's mind. His girlfriend alerts him to run, he does so. Zimmerman pursues and approaches him. Guess what Florida
Stand Your Ground Law states...uh-oh, Mr.Martin was definitely in some fear for his life. He was being followed by a strange man for no apparent
reason. He attempted to flee, and it didn't work. A scared young man being followed by a non authority figure when there is no one around is forced to
run or fight. If he did fight, he did so not as his first resort. He stood his ground after exhausting other options.
Zimmerman is a fool, and a poor excuse of a human being. He disregarded the operator's instructions and intended to confront the young man to
distribute some kind of justice. "They always get away"
There is some mens rea there for some type of physical altercation. If Zimmerman scared the young man to a point where violence occured, then Martin
held a legal right to retaliate under state law. That means Zimmerman entered an altercation by stalking, provoking, chasing, provoking, and
assaulting (not battery, look up the law) the young man to the point where the situation forced Martin to act within his legal right to defend
himself. Zimmerman looks as if he lost the confrontation and shot the young man. Wrong move bud, wrong move.
And that's if Zimmerman was attacked (rightfully so). Hell, I bet some of you are going to say Mr.Martin should have called 911. Young Black man who
Zimmerman is already suspecious of reaches for an indistinguishable object and POW. Dead anyways.
Mr. Martin was not going to walk away from this situation in any way shape or form unless he outran his pursuers vehicle, which he was unable to. A
young man is dead, and people are turning this into a defend the other guy because Martin "may" have been doing something wrong...which there is no
