This right here is the unfortunate answer.
Two morons colliding in the night....
Anyone that says 100% of the responsibility lays with Z or TM at this point is simply retarded.
As has been stated and pointed out, we are all missing the critical piece of info that could settle the argument:
Who initiated the physical combat?
Without this, we should withhold judgment, and see what happens with the trial and the case IMO.
Pursuing someone is OK, Asking them what they are doing is OK...
Laying hands on another person is where my line is drawn, personally. Laying hands on someone is where I believe a Jury will draw the line too. If the prosecution can PROVE beyond a reasonable doubt that GZ laid his hands on TM first, causing the fight...then they will win their case. Period.
They wont win based on the Chiefpants 'he was pursuing so he is an idiot' argument. Pursuing someone is not crossing that line. Pursuing someone does not give them a right to bash your head in.
