The account makes it hard to believe he ever stopped pursuit as he claims in his statement. Or that he was walking back to his car. And as long as we are judging based on history, I find it hard to believe zimmerman didn't shit talk or pursue with the intent not necessarily to fight but maybe to fget in trayvon's face.
My memory of the details is a bit foggy, but how do we know that much of anything was said other than zimmerman asking him what he was doing there.
IIRC martin didnt mention much in the way of verbal confrontation when he was talking to his girl on the phone, just that a guy was following him and he was considering running.
If you look back at my first several posts i was full-on against zimmerman, but as the evidence trickled in, i felt i had no choice but to change my tune... i honestly think martin could've lost that guy no sweat by cutting through yards and jumping a fence or two, and that he DID lose him, but that pride got the best of him and he snuck back, thus pushing the situation off the cliff.
