However, I would NOT keep pursuing the person in question to potentially endanger a potentially innocent suspect or myself in the situation. That's nothing short of common sense, I'd say.
They did not even ASK zimmerman to stop pursuing. They said you don't need to....
This particular case turned out very badly.....but I mean its not like this happens all of the time...(its very very rare)
We as citizens have the right to defend and protect our homes, and neighborhoods.
Theres gonna be a trayvon martin/GZ every once in a while, because we are free to own weapons and protect ourselves.
