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
And yet, even though he thought Trayvon was up to no good, was on drugs, and was tall and big, he still left the car and was pursuing Trayvon. That's not in dispute. If Zimmerman had any fear whatsoever, he would have stayed in his car and waited for the police to arrive. Again, this is a guy who was trained to know that the minute he started pursuing any suspicious person, he was putting himself in danger of confrontation. His training was VERY clear that he was not to do anything beyond call the police.
Secondly, let me again point you to his track record:
At an emergency homeowner’s association meeting on March 1, “one man was escorted out because he openly expressed his frustration because he had previously contacted the Sanford Police Department about Zimmerman approaching him and even coming to his home,” the resident wrote in an email to HuffPost. “It was also made known that there had been several complaints about George Zimmerman and his tactics" in his neighborhood watch captain role.
This is a guy who wanted to be a cop. This is a guy who volunteered to patrol and took his job ultra-seriously. This is a guy who used to work in security. This is a guy who has had multiple confrontations in the past. You don't think that a guy like this, who obviously seems to invite confrontation, didn't walk up to Trayvon with the bravado, especially knowing he had a gun to back him up if he failed?
