Like I said, Martin acted tough guy when he shouldn't have.
Zimmerman played the part of cop because he was on some of power trip from being on Neighborhood Watch.
Zimmerman would have been fine if he followed protocol. That started a situation that never would have happened. Trayvon messed up too. But again, none of this happens if Zimmerman follows basic protocol.
