Even the cops said that the whole thing would have been avoided if Zimmerman did 2 simple things, which Zimmerman knew damn well what those 2 things were. He almost got himself killed and he killed a teenager because of his damn stupidity, and people shouldn't defend him for that.
He was designated with the security of his neighborhood. I would have chased the kid off too, but I never would have left the car. Woulda, coulda, shoulda...You could apply that logic to Martin as well...had he just answered the questions without the intent to hurt someone it could have been avoided as well. Martin did come find Zimmerman as well...so perhaps it was fate. Unfortunate no matter how you look at it.
