"dumchit"??? How very Christian of you.
Anyhow, he's already confessed to 2nd degree murder. Its up to his defense to prove the extenuating circumstance of "self-defense". The prosecution doesn't have to prove a thing.
Zimmerman hasn't confessed to anything. Self-defense is not murder.

Juries are always instructed (at least here in California) that "the prosecution must prove the case beyond reasonable doubt." That places the onus on the prosecution to prove their version of events.

Did George kill Trayvon in an assault in which the death of the victim was a real possibility?

Regardless of why he committed the assault he did commit it and confessed to it. Its up to his defense team to prove he was justified in doing it.

second degree murder n. a non-premeditated killing, resulting from an assault in which death of the victim was a distinct possibility. Second degree murder is different from First Degree Murder which is a premeditated, intentional killing, or results from a vicious crime such as arson, rape, or armed robbery. Exact distinctions on degree vary by state.(See: murder, first degree murder, manslaughter)

Vattel defines IT!
Book I
Chapter XIX[19]
Section 212. Citizens and natives.
The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages.
The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens.
As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights.
The society is supposed to desire this, in consequence of what it owes to its own preservation; and it is presumed, as matter of course, that each citizen, on entering into society, reserves to his children the right of becoming members of it.
The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent. We shall soon see whether, on their coming to the years of discretion, they may renounce their right, and what they owe to the society in which they were born.
I say, that, in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.

You're absolutely right, I believe this pretty much sums up Trayon's position in defending himself against Zimmerman:
(from your own source)
"(3)&#8195;A person who is not engaged in an unlawful activity and who is attacked in any other place where he or she has a right to be has no duty to retreat and has the right to stand his or her ground and meet force with force, including deadly force if he or she reasonably believes it is necessary to do so to prevent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another or to prevent the commission of a forcible felony."
George had a fckin' gun and was the one pursuing Martin by his own admission, get a grip.
You don't know that Zimmerman was the one pursuing Martin when the attack occured. Zimmerman has said that was not the case. In fact, about 4 minutes into his call with police, he told them he didn't know where Martin was. Approximately four minutes later, gun shots are heard. No body knows what happened in those four minutes. The final decision of who is right and wrong will be made by jurors based on evidence. Wait for it.

He did give 911 his phone number because he wasn't sure he'd be able to meet police at the mailboxes and he didn't know where he'd be by the time they arrived. Did he head straight home? Is that what happened?

Homicide NOT murder! Nor manslaughter!
NO charges should have been FILED!
Malicious prosecution just to appease the race baiters!
Just glad it went to trial. That was my only beef. That Zimmerman almost walked when a teenager was dead.

The jurors will decide and I trust they will do the right thing having all the evidence - either way.

If Trayvon assaulted Zimmerman, wouldn't his death be a real possibility? Why would his death be Zimmerman's fault? See where I am going with this?

It is up to the prosecution to present a jury with enough evidence to back up THEIR CLAIM of second degree murder. If they can't, Zimmerman walks.

I'm not trying to take sides. Quite the opposite, I have no idea what the outcome will be and I don't care one way or the other since I don't have all the facts. Personally, I honestly don't know if Zimmerman was the assaulter or the assaultee. I'm keeping an open mind and confident the jury will sort things out.

Enough said.

Zimmerman gunned down an unarmed teenager. Regardless of the specifics a trial is certainly in order. You would just take Zimmerman's word for it since Martin was a black kid who had it coming 'cause he was wearing a hoodie? I take a hoodie on all my travels, extremely versatile piece of clothing. Extremely comfortable, good against the cold especially under a windbreaker, good as a pillow, I've even used them as towels.
You really need to read that Bible of yours if you're "living it". What a fckn' joke.
He gunned down a 17 year old "footbal playing" THUG who was into MMA fighting! Who was 6' tall...
Not the lil "innocent" looking kid they portrayed on the news!

Prove it a**hole. The problem for Obama is he's the president and he got caught.
