The fact remains, you're accusing someone of having small man syndrome while backing the idea that people have the right to shakedown every Tom, Dick, and Harry that they come across, and if it doesn't go the way of an episode of Dragnet where the punk gets slammed against the wall, the watchman can kill someone. That is the definition of small-man syndrome -- you can kick my ass for accosting you, but I will shoot you, so I have the right to accost you.
You are acting as if Z pulled out his gun and ordered him to freeze
Dude he lost the kid, he went back to his vehicle and Trayvon doubled back and jumped him. Slamming someone against the wall does not justify deadly force, slamming a head into concrete does. When you legitimately fear your life is in danger in an assault you can legally shoot someone.
