While most people in this thread took sides, it pretty much confirms what I've been saying most of this thread.
There was a meathead with a history of violence and aggression, trying to enforce his own vigilante justice trying to enforce police powers he does not have and CLEARLY overstepping his boundaries and duties
Then there was a hothead who in a panic ran away from the guy patrolling and instead of doing the sensible thing, which is to go home, decided instead to double back and pick a fight
Zimmerman was cocky and thought he could pick a fight with anybody, as he's done in the past. He found a guy who outmatched him. Trayvon thought he could be gangsta and pick a fight with anybody. He found a guy who carried a gun and wasn't afraid to use it.
Both did the wrong thing that night. But only one of them is dead.
