You should not be able to pick a fight with someone, and then when you start to lose the fight, pull out a gun and kill them.
That's about as yella as you can get and breaks about every honor or man code ever written.
He did NOT pick a fight, police report and 4 witness's state that he was JUMPED and was beaten, I am so tired of BLACK vs's White. I can see a race war happening and it won't be nice.

I'm not sure I care much about race on this issue. Regardless of the actual reason Zimmerman followed, if I was being followed by someone thru my neighborhood, I would be frightened.
If he came close enough to me, I would fight him.
I don't think there is anyone who wouldn't do the same.
Overall, Zimmerman made all of the moves. Nothing would've happened if he waited for the police. By confronting Trayvon, he initiated the attack. Regardless of how many time Trayvon punched him. Seems simple to me.

I suspect that you have been brainwashed by the media. Supposed "facts" are presented and people, many of whom have prejudiced views about which ever race that they are not, form conclusions based on which ever set of "facts" they choose to believe. Martin may have been a innocent little boy who was hunted down and killed because he was "walking while black" by a" white Hispanic white race monger." Martin may have been a gang banger thug who was angry because a neighbor watch captin was doing his job by watching a suspicious looking figure dressed like a thug, and he may have attacked Zimmerman. MUCH OF BOTH OF THESE ARE WRONG, but people like you and others are willing to conclude your version of justice. Remember justice for Martin means justice for Zimmerman.

Zimmerman is a moron who wanted to use his gun, and did. He should be executed.

Bringing this to the top for further discussion by all sides. A license to carry is not a license to kill. It comes with responsibility and a call for good judgment.
Though I follow your logical statement it is also to be said that in all the years Zimmerman lawfully carried a gun he never shot much less killed anybody before Martin.
As part of the neighborhood watch in a gated community he is right to question strangers in the neighborhood and Martin was new to the area and there had been several recent break ins also.
That being said I do not know if he was right to shoot Martin but if he was attacked by Martin then I say he was right to do so.
