I'm guessing you probably would have listened to the 911 dispatcher when she told you not to follow him.

After the scumbag he turned out to be I'm surprised that was the first time his head was bounced off the pavement.

Probably not, I don't take orders from 911 dispatchers. And following someone isn't illegal. Martin jumped him and that's what escalated it. Why did Martin jumped him and attack him if he wasn't doing anything wrong?

What was Martin afraid of that made him attack someone?

Zimmerman was safe and sound in his vehicle when he made the call and was instructed not to follow Martin. We have no idea if Martin jumped him or if it were the other way around because there's only one account and no witnesses at that very moment in time. What we do know is Zimmerman has been charged with domestic felony or misdemeanor assault twice after this event with two different women, one after he pointed a shotgun at her and after throwing a wine bottle at the second. He's a known violent hothead.

You have an ethical and moral obligation and responsibility when you carry and especially when you claim self defense to not antagonize or escalate the situation which is obviously what he did by taking matters into his own hands after being instructed not to.

Even if we take Zimmerman's version of the story as fact, he still stood a good chance of being convicted of a lesser crime than second degree murder had the DA not decided to make good press.

I keep noticing the DOT puts up signs to honor my burnouts. That's nice of them.

I never liked that all or nothing tactic is that a FloRida thing.

Z-Man went looking for trouble and found it in a kid killing time near his home. Stalked a minor, got looped, confronted then got his *** beat while he was reaching for his gun, weak and pathertic, he told officers he was reaching for his phone, BS in case he was contradicted by witnesses.

Zimmerman couldn't even beat up a male teenager so he had to resort to beating women instead.
