But it's also very believable that he intended to confront Trayvon and, who knows, possibly restrain him (with force if necessary) until the cops got there. Again, lots of stories that can hang together about Zimmerman provoking a confrontation that never needed to happen.
That 1-2 minutes of radio silence is unfortunately the most critical. Neither side knows what happens, whether that's Trayvon's side or Zimmerman's side. I'm just forming my opinion based on what we know about the guy.
I can't see that scenario, Man was taller than he was, had a hoodie on and it was dark. I just don't know many people who are that brave man.
I would not come up to ANYONE out of the blue with or without a gun in the middle of the night.
Just can't grasp that scenario
