If he had just dropped the skittles, the fat guy would have stopped to eat them and he'd have gotten away.
Hell, if he'd have dropped one at a time, he could have led the fat guy into a trap with his friends waiting to club the flubber out of him.
Also, why keep showing pics of this kid when he was 12? why not show photos of Zimmerman when he was 12 and less fat? It's because the pre-pubescent boy is a better story next to the bad santa.
At least his mama is selling T shirts....that's the first thing I'd think to do in a time of grief after losing my son.
