It was a self defense case. Pure and simple. Not a stalking case. Both Zimmerman and Martin made bad decisions that night. The person who threw the first punch broke the law. And we'll never know fully what happened that night.
(Interesting side note .. so far all the jurors who have spoken out say that it was Zimmerman screaming for help)
HOWEVER .. after watching the trial, I was thinking that the stalking laws could use tightening up. I was thinking that I wouldn't want someone following me with the intent of watching me and carrying a gun doing so. It's legal. And I understand that neighborhood watches do that and they are necessary. But there are a lot of STUPID people out there who do stupid things ... and if someone didn't have any business following me and watching me then I'd want them not to be able to do so. It would be hard to prove intent ... but anyways .... that thought went through my mind this week.
