What proof do you have of Zim restraining thug that night? None. Just like you have no proof of stalking, chasing, hunting down or murder. No grass stains on thugs clothing. No evidence to suggest he was ever pinned down by Zimmerman. It's all wishful thinking on your part.
I wasn't talking about what they teach thugs to avoid prosecution by claiming self defense. I did say self defense class-as in when you're being followed at night by an unknown, and then grabbed, what do you do to get away? Blind the unknown. If they can't see you, they can't get you.

Kind of like you have no proof of Martin attacking Zimmerman?

Since nobody knows what actually did happen, I'm going by what I think makes the most sense.
And since when is pinning someone on the grass the only way to restrain someone? Grabbing and holding onto one's jacket is also restraining.

Zim had a gun legally
The perp could not get a legal gun
Yes I know......
To people like you all guns are the same..........LOL
You just further proved my point. IF Martin had been a thug, punk, criminal, whatever...he would have been armed, whether it was legal for him to be so or not. Because criminals don't care if they're legally holding a gun. SMH

Period
Cops would have to identify themselves as cops, otherwise even a tackle would be illegal. And I think you're forgetting, Zimmerman never identified himself as 'security'.

<quoted text>R U serious why would he A private citizen can ask someone they do not recognize if they belong to the community. Martin could have said he was staying with his fathers girl friend, rather than trying to beat Zimmerman. A little less bad attitude and he would probably still be alive today . Trayvon only proved that he was not bullet proof
A private citizen can refuse to answer questions from a drug-induced, gun-toting, woman-beating punk.

Any day of the week.

There was no "215 suspect."

There was an innocent child, minding his own business.

Person, "Defending" him/her self must be in fear of imminent death and/or Great bodily harm, and even then can only return "Equal and Opposite Force."
Can of Tea doesn't cut it.
Why didn't Martin use that can of tea as a weapon? Seems if he were attacking Zim, he would have facilitated the ONLY weapon he had available.
