I take that back. He might have been stupid (as evidenced by the actual result), but just not as stupid.
This is assuming Zimmerman was being honest in his testimony that he backed off pursuit. HIs track record makes this story hard to believe. If he egged on a confrontation in any way, then that is stupid AND reckless. Both guys looked like they did stupid and reckless things that night. But I'm again going to point to the fact that this situation would have been avoided if Zimmerman followed basic, basic protocol.
