Evidence Shows Zimmerman Was Injury
By Reginald Kaigler (DEMCAD)
It turns out that Zimmerman did have some wounds. And there was a fight (as I suspected). Zimmerman clearly lost the fight according to a witness. But Zimmerman still has the same big problem he had at the beginning. He initiated the conflict. Zimmerman followed a teen who didn't commit a crime in his car at night. Then followed the teen after he was told to stop. Then created a conflict which left the unarmed teen dead. Nobody had to die. This should have been avoided and Zimmerman acted irresponsibly.
Whether you think Zimmerman acted in self defense or is guilty of murder or manslaughter, it is clear that Zimmerman's actions were at least unwise. And if you carry a firearm, you shouldn't be seeking people out for a conflict. You shouldn't be calling 911 when there isn't an emergency or a crime committed.
Maybe Zimmerman stalked the teen and Trayvon freaked out because there was some creepy guy following him and Zimmerman had to shot him in self-defense. Even if that is the case, Zimmerman acted foolishly by stalking the teen. Or maybe Zimmerman said something to the kid and that set him off.
I don't have a problem with Zimmerman using a gun to stop someone from beating him to death. I have a problem with him stalking a teen that didn't commit a crime and continuing to follow him even after he was told by 911 to stop. The 911 tape is evidence of Zimmerman's bad judgment and if you can't see that, you shouldn't be carrying a gun. Gun owners must be smarter than that. Using good judgment can help you avoid a George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case. Using good judgment can help prevent anti-gun lunatics from using cases like this against all gun owners.
Question: If Zimmerman followed the kid, started a fight, and lost it, did he have the right to use deadly force?
