But they do have a right to stop a forcible felony being committed against them which threatens to cause grievous bodily harm or possible death.
It's not one if they initiated the confrontation in the first place, son.

You can't switch sides of the law because you went from being the winner to the loser.
Yeah

Rather stupid to carry an unloaded one, just so we are clear.
Then using your argument, it's clear he knew he was taking a loaded weapon with an intent to use it, son.

Otherwise if you disagree, see your statement above!

"While George Zimmerman could lawfully follow Trayvon Martin -- even if the police dispatcher told him not to he had no legal right to stop him, question him, or put his hands on him...."
Jon H Gutmacher ,Florida criminal defense lawyer

Let me repeat, there is no law against following someone and there is no law against carrying a concealed weapon with a permit. Which "fact" do you believe is incorrect, gramps?

Why carry a loaded gun if you don't intend on using it if circumstances warrant it? Liberal logic and reality are often polar opposites and your post is a prime example of that fact.
Yeah

You have every right to shoot a drugged up teen trying to attack you, and steal your gun. There was plenty of drugs found in the Autopsy of little Trayvon. He wasn't himself, I guess. Now he is nobody.

Incorrect. If one is the initial aggressor but then retreats from confrontation(that never took place? like going back to his truck he can still claim SYG .He still has a right to defend himself from a forcible felony independent of the SYG law. Pays to own the Florida Firearms laws and Use book,7th edition, like I do, instead of guessing about the law, like you do.

He's half Hispanic and Hispanics are whites.
Here's the math: white plus white equals...
Still waiting for that explanation on why a sweat sweater would be suspicious clothing on a chilly evening.
Because in areas where blacks exist, hoodies are frequently used in crime. They cover your face so witnesses and cameras have a harder time identifying you. For those not committing a crime at the time, they wear them to look cool.

As I posted earlier, Zimmerman listed himself as Hispanic when he registered to vote. No different than the Mulatto and Chief being considered black.

The pedophile didn't go back to the truck and was not even going in the direction of the truck, he was going in the direction to intercept someone he thought would be on the sidewalk.

Of course this is very clear by looking at the map: the boy was on the sidewalk, the pedophile thug moving between the houses cutting across the yard violating the instructions of the police dispatcher.

The state of Florida has correct identified the cause of the confrontation is this sad sack college drop out cop wannabee over stepping his authority and shooting this boy armed only with a bag of candy.
