Define "minutes". Zimmerman had every right to do everything he did. Martin's stupidity, violence and racism caused his death. Usually his type don't run into an armed citizen.<quoted text>
The young man could have easily avoided the confrontation and the ensuing attack by continuing his walk home or staying out of sight, no question. But Zimmerman could have also complied with being told to stay put and letting the police handle it. They were there within minutes after Martin was shot.
It's up to the jurors to decide.
I guess someone in the Aurora theater should have just waited for the police? In Newtown? We have a right to defend ourselves from criminals, Martin was a criminal committing a crime.
