I'm looking at this more from the standpoint of... Did Zimmerman do anything wrong. I still believe that story hangs together that he is significantly to blame for what happened (trayvon too, but Zimmerman too).
Well the think that will hurt the case for the Trayvon side is the lack of witnesses on his side.
One minor girl that does not or cannot be identified that was only on the phone with him will not trump an actual eyewitness.
I just want justice, No hyped up racially motivated shit, just justice...
If that kid was shot for no good reason then the shooter does not represent anything I believe in.
If Trayvon chose to pursue GZ when he could have just walked off then that was just a very poor decision that he will never have a chance to recover from.
Everybody said that GZ was so much fatter than this kid so to me, I don't see how this kid could have not gotten away if he wanted to, not that he has to retreat same as GZ.
But this is the most important part...
Even if Trayvon chose to approach GZ, and just ask him what his problem was, and didn't resort to violence he would be alive in MY MIND today..
Being black with a hoodie on in the neighborhood did not get him killed in my mind, launching a vicious felony assault on the wrong person did.
