Well "Antonio West"(whoever wrote this in your name), two wrongs don't make a right.
Zimmerman should have stayed in his truck. The trial centered on the fight rather than facts leading up to it.
People who have made their choice as to which side they stand with will argue with you until the hottest place freezes over and you can't change most of the minds on either side.
For many months I felt that Zimmerman was justified until I got the 911 call audio, the transcript of that call and the map that resulted from what GZ said and the path that he took. Had GZ NOT made that left turn on his way STRAIGHT back to his truck then he would still be wrong but more right than making that left turn.
Below is what some guy wrote that sums it up.
Facts were not zeroed in on.
Fact: GZ called 911 on a black guy, not white, pink or red, but black.
Fact: GZ told dispatch that TM was "a real suspicious guy" not that he had done anything. Not that he was carrying a plastic shopping bag.
Fact: GZ told dispatch that TM "This guy looks like he's up to no good, or he's on drugs or something".
Fact: GZ NEVER told dispatch that he was Neighborhood Watch.
Fact: GZ NEVER told TM that he was Neighborhood Watch.
Fact: Dispatch asked GZ "Are you following him?" GZ answered "Yeah".
Fact: dispatch told GZ "Ok, we don't need you to do that". GZ replied "OK" and followed TM anyway.
Fact: Sanford police volunteer coordinator Wendy Dorival told GZ right up front when setting up NW, "This is not about being a vigilante police force. You're not even supposed to patrol on neighborhood watch. And you're certainly not supposed to carry a gun."
Fact: The path that the killing was on was a 90 degree walk from the walk where GZ hung up the call and then turned around. The map was made using GZ own words. If he turned around and went straight then that walk led STRAIGHT to his truck. Instead he made a left turn off of that walk onto another walk.
The killing took place past 2-1/2 homes, behind the 3rd home, down the walk from the straight walk to his truck.
GZ had no reason to make that left turn except to look for TM.
Remember, he first told dispatch that TM had headed to the back gate. GZ then went straight down the walk to where he could see the back gate. Not seeing TM on that street with the back gate he then turned around and took the left turn. The only other logical way that TM could have went.
The trial focused on the fight rather than the fact that GZ should never have been playing cop in the dark with a gun.
