There was no evidence that Mr. Zimmerman started the fight. Actually, just the opposite. He was hit first by Mr. Martin and an eyewitness saw Mr. Martin on top of Mr. Zimmerman and pummeling him. Mr. Martin did not have bruises or cuts indicating he had been pummeled by Mr. Zimmerman. Mr. Zimmerman was not able to retreat as he had someone on top of him.Stand your Ground
... if you get your ass kicked in a fight that you started , you oughta be able to shoot the other guy.
That's about right huh? Your daughter is being followed by some thug intending to rob or rape her and she ducks into the treeline ready to mace him and deserves to be shot to death for it right? Dumbass people thinking it is okay to follow someone then shoot them to death if they try to defend themselves. Repuke mentality. RIP GOP
Your example is totally ridiculous! No comparison whatsoever.
Your son is driving out of your neighborhood to go to the store. He sees someone he does not recognize leisurely walking in the rain near the eaves of some of the homes. He calls 911 and attempts to keep the person in sight. The person goes down between two homes and he gets out of the car to see where he is going. It is dark, raining, and the person has a hood over his head so your son has no idea of his age.
The person suddenly appears and punches your son in the nose knocking him to the ground. He then straddles your son and begins pummeling him and slamming his head against the concrete. Your son is legally carrying a gun and cannot get the person off from him. He screams for help, but no one comes.
Your son is scared to death and afraid this person is going to kill him. What should he do?
