If I was walking down ghe street minding my own business and some dude, not a uniformed police officer, not a uniformed security guard, was driving slowly behind me following me down the road in a civilian car, I would assume this dude had bad intentions. If some civilian dude, ie: someone who has zero authority over me starts question ing me about my business, I am unlikely to be coopertive.<quoted text>
Okay -- I'm the one that doesn't have a brain yet you are the one that has to use insults to "speak". Hmmm....
Mine works fine and I really dn't care whether you agree. The cops told Martin NOT TO FOLLOW, but he followed Trayvon. They told Martin to stay in his car -- he did not.
If someone was following me and I was a guy, I would go up to the guy following me and ask him WTF is he following me for. I would perceive HIM to be a threat/criminal.
I do believe that Zimmerman should have been found not guilty but only b/c of the poor execution of the prosecution. The prosecution sucked.
By the way, when you treat people like aholes it defines you not them.
Read the transcript of the 911. He refers to the kid he was following as an a-hole. Then he's like oh crap, he's running. So Martin initially ran away and this dude that has been following him chases after him. Is it illegal to follow someone? No. But he chased somecdude that had no idea why he was being chased. He did not just remain in his car and observe. He got out of his car to find Martin. Ie:he escalated the situation. He went looking for a confrontation and ehen thing did not go his way, he ran to his gun. He may not have thrown the first punch, but his actions leading up to it are the reason there was a punch to begin with.
