A private citizen can refuse to answer questions from a drug-induced, gun-toting, woman-beating punk.

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.

Wrong again troll..........

I have posted the evidence that shows there were recent burglaries.........

I have posted the evidence that there was a BOTLO for a 215 suspect

I have posted the evidence that Zim talked with the operator about this 215 suspect.........

Looks like you are proven a liar again......

Why did the perp not just go home?? He had the time???

The evidence shows that Zim was on his back and was beaten..........No law against shooting someone in that situation

The Perp? The perp didn't go home because he had the great equalizer, ie. the gun and felt he owns the entire state of Florida and he would decide who belongs there, he would decide who can walk the streets, unmolested and unaccosted and who could not. That is why we are having this discussion. Because the perp decided to stalk, accost and shoot an unarmed kid, because he believed he COULD.
You're right, the perp should have just gone home or called police or both.

I see you must be a liberal..........

1. How can you be 100% sure that ash tray did not break into those houses??

2. A suspect does not mean anyone broke any laws......

3. Ash tray matched the description of a re=cent burglary suspect

4. Zim told the dispatcher that ash tray matched the description......

5. Matching the description of a 215 suspect is grounds for the police to take you to the police station and interview you.

6. Matching the description of a 215 suspect gives grounds for any citizen to follow, chase or question you.....

I can see you must be a dumbass.
Even if Martin was the alleged Black Burglar, it doesn't give Zimmie the right to be judge, jury and executioner, does it?
It was still the USA on that day and Zimmie the Charles Bronson wannabe apparently killed a teenager in cold blood, just because he had a gun and because he could.

It does not matter if he did or did not commit the burglaries........

1. Zim had all legal rights to ask ash tray what he was doing and to follow him when he refused to answer..........

2. Zim had all legal rights to shoot ash tray if ash tray broke his nose and then was on top of him beating him........

3. The grass stain evidence shows that Zim was on his back on the ground and lack of grass stains prove that ash tray was never on his back.

4. Zim had a broken nose and two black eyes and was hit at least three times in the face and the back of his head had there blunt force wounds.

5. The witness said he saw two MEN fighting on the ground one on top of the other in the grass/mud area.....

6. Ash tray had no injuries to his face and no grass stains or mud on his back.......

The evidence shows that Zim was knocked to the ground on his back and ash tray jumped on top of him

If Zimmerman hadn't acted like a predator, following and chasing Martin, maybe he would have answered his question.
And no probably about it, if Zimmerman had stayed in his truck and let LE do their job, he wouldn't have murdered an unarmed kid minding his business.

And if Martin just went home instead of staying in the dark between the row houses waiting for Zimmerman, he would be alive today as well. But no, he wasn't about to get dissed by anybody. Revenge is not always bitter sweet.

Key words in your reply "Because he could."

Yes he could. He was a victim of assault and battery which allows licensed concealed carry holders to use their weapon for such a purpose.
