No, but he was scared obviously.... Do I think he was premature in shooting him? Yep... in hindsight
But you are talking heat of the moment stuff.. Was this kid a gang banger? Does this kid have a knife? A gun? am I gonna die? Shit happens fast...
Impossible to know what he was feeling... I just wish he could have wounded and not killed him.
I am not defending Zimmerman, I am defending the law as it is written which I fully agree with.
