Let me answer that a different way. If GZ rolled down his window and identified himself to TM or questioned TM, and all the other parts of the night of the shooting happened the same way, what do you think Bernie's closing argument would be?<quoted text>
Oh but it does have bearing. We still can't be sure if Trayvon attacked Zimbo just out of being an aggressive thug wannabe, or if he actually was fearful of Zimbo, or even if Zimbo initiated the physical confrontation.
Whether or not Zimbo identified himself and tried to behave as Neighborhood Watch or as a potentially dangerous vigilante is a big question and that moment of the confrontation, for which we have no witnesses, is crucial to evaluating this.
Bernie would argue that GZ should not have rolled his window down to question TM, but instead GZ should have called 911 or 311 to report suspicious activity as he was trained to do.
