Zimmerman was following Martin. Martin had two options flee or fight. Instead of going home he attacked. That's what 'Stand Your Ground' is about.
Zimmerman did not feel threatened by Martin until he was attacked and was in the middle of getting his butt kicked, that is self defense. He was not threatened by Martin being in the neighbirhood, he was worried about poor police response time to his community and what Matrin could have done to one of his multicultural neighbors.
