I actually agree with you. Zimmerman should have stayed put after calling the police.<quoted text>
No, that's the job of the police, that's why we have 911. Someone was in my backyard once, I called 911, the cops came and adamantly told me to stay in the house. That's how it goes.
But neighbors are allowed to protect their neighborhoods even if it means walking around the neighborhood or waiting for the police.
If Zimmerman had not been carrying a weapon that night, it might have been Trayvon on trial - unless help had arrived first.
We'll never know, sadly enough.
