he was shot because he was walking in the rain with his hood up. The neighborhood watch isn't supposed to have a gun nor follow him for a long distance out side of the neighbor hood.

Just one less nasty thug society has to deal with,if you believe he was an innocent child,you're a fool to believe the media spin.

Well Kelly I guess in your opinion it is okay to beat up anybody that follows you then. Is that correct? He was shot because Zimmerman thought his life was in danger while Trayvon was on top of him beating him, not because he was "walking in the rain with his hood up." Having a gun is Zimmerman's constitutional right and he can have it for whatever reason he likes. Also, following someone is not illegal, attacking someone, however, is.
