That's why there is a trial going on dummy.<quoted text> Whether you like it or not, what the poster wrote does happen. Did it happen this time? Self defense for Zim? Martin's right to be there? That is what we will find out one way or the other.
By George's own accounts, Martin could not possibly have known who was following him in the expensive pick up truck in the neighborhood that he was "somewhat" unfamiliar with. Martin had been to The Retreat previously and perhaps knew about the short cut near Frank T's home, obviously many living in the community knew of that opening.
The HOA President knew of it and had concerns, certainly George knew of it having been there for nearly three years, not unusual to see someone cutting through in late afternoon-early evening.
Personally, I would have raised all grades of he11 about that weird cheapazz fence allowing foot and bicycle traffic to constantly pass next to my home.
But if my home was in foreclosure and my HOA dues were in arrears, who would I raise he11 with?
