I dont know how people can defend Trayvon....he came towards Zimmerman on the offense and punched him in the face and thrashed his head into the
ground. Zimmerman was walking back to his SUV on the defense and not assaulting or on the offense towards Trayvon. In Florida, the Castle Doctrine
lets you defend your property or ground as long as you are on DEFENSE and not OFFENSE. By this definition, Zimmerman acted in self defense after being
assaulted by Trayvon who struck first and was taking an offensive approach.
For those who say Zimmerman followed Trayvon, that might be true. However, as a block watch officer he is allowed to observe activity as long as he
doesnt cause any physical damage. Zimmerman did follow him but than returned back to his vehicle before Trayvon came towards Zimmerman and assaulted
him. Therefore, the approach by people to say that Trayvon acted in self defense is void because Zimmerman left the scene and Trayvon went on the
offense confronting Zimmerman physically.
