Since I'm not privy to all the evidence, I'm only going by what some are saying is known to be fact.
But my question has always been who is most responsible for the confronation having taken place to begin with? And did Zimmerman put himself in the position of being attacked unnecessarily?
Both answers in my opinion are Zimmerman and yes. Zimmerman is most responsible for leaving his house after being told not to and getting out of his car before the police arrived and, therefore, put himself in the position of being attacked.
Whatever good intentions he may have had, in my opinion Zimmerman took on the role of vigilante as soon as he left his house with a gun.
Neighborhood watches cannot pursue people with guns even based on suspicion and even with good intentions. No one would be safe in any neighborhood.
Again, that's my opinion. The evidence may prove otherwise. And I could be wrong.
Homer agrees with your assessment.

Fox Business Refuses To Air Ultraviolet Ad Slamming Pundits For Sexist Comments
Nita Chaudhary, co-founder of UltraViolet, said she believes Fox's rejection of the ad and refusal to fire or apologize for the pundits who made the controversial comments is tantamount to an endorsement of their sexist views.
"It appears the men at Fox News have lost their minds," she told HuffPost in a phone interview. "The fact that they won't air this ad shows that the company is standing by Dobbs and Erickson and Williams and everyone else. The biggest statement it sends is,'We're okay with the backward thinking of the sexist, misognist men leading our programming.'"
Fox News host Megyn Kelly tore into Dobbs and Erickson on her show Friday, asking Erickson, "What makes you dominant and me submissive, and who died and made you scientist-in-chief?" Greta Van Susteren, another Fox News host, wondered if her colleagues would next have a segment about "eliminating women's right to vote."
Chaudhary said UltraViolet is considering running the ad on a different network, but it has not made a decision yet. "We just want to put it in front of [Fox's] female viewers that if you're working outside of the home, Fox News' line is that you are personally responsible for ruining America."

Is GOP hyping of scandals prompting a media backlash?
....It’s true that some news orgs have been way too quick to inflate the importance of this or that detail of what the White House knew and when about the timing of the impending inspector general’s report on the IRS scandal. But we’re also seeing a very serious effort in many cases to separate the scandal wheat from the chaff. The Washington Post has done great work detailing, contextualizing, and demythologizing what those emails concerning the Benghazi talking points really told us. The New York Times has done deeply reported, nuanced work on what really drove the IRS targeting of conservatives.
Meanwhile, some D.C. journos are now openly reacting badly to GOP scandal hyping. Remember that Daily Caller “scoop” reporting that the former IRS commissioner visited the White House 157 times? Garance Franke-Ruta’s debunking of the story prompted a surprisingly sharp discussion of it on Howard Kurtz’s Reliable Sources yesterday, with the Post’s Dana Milbank ripping into it as ”shoddy reporting.” Meanwhile, House GOP investigations leader Darrell Issa is getting pilloried by reporters for suggesting, with zero evidence, that Obama administration officials coordinated IRS targeting of conservatives. CNN’s Candy Crowley insistently cornered Issa over the claim yesterday, and Ron Fournier (who has not refrained from slamming the White House) tore into Issa for resorting to “cherry picked evidence” and “weasel words.”
Also see today’s big Times overview of the House GOP prosecution of these scandals, which is appropriately skeptical, flatly suggesting that Republicans are allowing “investigatory zeal” to displace “serious legislating.”
Again: The goal of Issa and others here is to create an atmosphere of scandal, with the deliberate aim of obscuring the importance of the details of the actual scandals themselves (as Rep. Mike Rogers has now helpfully revealed). But there does seem to be a real media effort underway in some quarters to point out that that the smoke coming from the GOP smoke machine doesn’t mean there’s necessarily any fire there. That’s a far sight better than the 1990s, when scores of reporters would eagerly clamber aboard their shiny red fire truck to chase even the thinnest wisp of smoke whenever Republicans told them to.
Update: One more data point. On Morning Joe today, Chuck Todd described Issa as a “guy who cries wolf,” noting that he had promised huge scandal dividends from Benghazi but hadn’t delivered, and that he is now making similar claims about the IRS scandal.

By that age, I was having to work every day (already having been contributing to mine own upkeep--for quite some time-as in YEARS prior to tat even!!) paying a mortgage, bills, greoceries etc-you know-as in supplying for my own needs. Uh, sans (as in )NO or with OUT givverment handouts.
Of course back then, people still HAD to....common sense was not yet unheard of and people still tended to know the realities of things like BUDGETS, living with in their means, etc.
And as for the rest- I'd rather have caring respect and concern for with my kids-than some "who cares anything goes attitude" of total LOSERS.
I am sure you were.

Yes, and here's a super example of taking action to fix a problem:

Gary Wozniak is cultivating an urban farming initiative in Detroit that he says could create 18,000 new jobs in the city over the next two decades. Those kind of numbers are likely to perk up the ears of job-seekers in the Motor City, where the unemployment rate hovers around 23 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Wozniak, a former financial consultant, is the driving force behind a nonprofit called RecoveryPark, which is developing three separate but related agricultural projects: an urban farm spread out over a 2,475-acre zone on Detroit's east side, a food processing center and an indoor fish farm.(Click here for a slideshow of Detroit's up-and-coming development projects.)

Talk about large-scale urban agriculture in Detroit in recent years has largely focused on financial services magnate John Hantz, whose plan for the world's largest urban farm evolved into a deal last year to create a 140-acre commercial tree-farming operation in the city.

The nonprofit RecoveryPark, initiated in 2008, has a very different focus. The operation is looking to hire ex-prisoners and recovering drug addicts, people who usually face barriers to employment. That's a mission close to Wozniak's heart; a recovering addict who spent three and a half years in federal prison because of drug-related activity, the project is a chance for him to give back to others who are recovering.

It's the same with guns. Responsible, disciplined and trained. It is primarily a defensive weapon to be used judiciously and with great restraint only as a last resort.

I proved you wrong. Man up & admit it instead of acting like a two year old.
When we push democracy, then the people vote.
Sometimes they elect people we don't like.
We can withhold aide & make them our enemy or treat them as allies until they prove otherwise.
I see. When Bush does it, it's intrusive, wasteful and un-American, when Obama does it, you want to discuss implementation strategies. You're disgusting.

After a government you formerly allied yourself with is violently overthrown, good sense dictates withholding aide until they prove themselves. The MB is not, and never has been, worthy of anything but condemnation and annihilation. These are the sworn enemies of Western civilization and you and Obama give them billions in aide, the benefit of the doubt, and the means to attack our friends.

Obama's foreign policy is as naive as his domestic one, he proves on a daily basis how clueless and amateurish ideological policy leads to massive fraud, cover-ups, and harmful repercussions. We already regret the day Obama was elected - as will the rest of the world.

Does everyone have evidence I'm not privy to? I ask because, as a person from the streets I'm curious. What kind of thug eats skittles, drinks soda, & talks to his girlfriend on the phone before & while committing a"burglary", or "robbery?" The kid doesn't even have a record! only way stand your ground defense should is if Martin shot Zimmerman. That kid was minding his business, walking to his fathers house. Can someone tell me what was Martin to do when he realizes that this person stalking him is now out of the car approaching him? What would you do being a whiteman if you were walking home & a hispanic man first follows you in his car, then gets out & approaches you?

That all went down the tubes when Al Gore & Bill Clinton were dissing the USA overseas when soon after Bush won in 2000.

The Democrats supported the wars and then politicized them for power.

Now the left is trying to rewrite history.

You cannot trust Democrats. Their loyalty to the USA comes last. With them, it's all about socialism, greed & power.
