[DELETE] Was reading the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman thread below, and something struck me... funkmop New
I know that I would be really, really uncomfortable w/ someone following me in their car and then if they get out of their car, it is going to really make the situation more volatile.
Since we weren't there, it is hard to know how the conversation went, but if this guy (Zimmerman) is as vigilant as he seems to be, based on his zeal in packing a weapon and the number of calls he has sent in, then we can probably assume that he didn't approach this kid in a calm, unassuming manner. IF that is the case, and someone came at me like that, then I would certainly feel justified in defending myself and being very suspicious of his motives.
Now, if the guy just got out of his car and didn't engage the kid, (is there any witnesses talking about that?) and was simply getting back in his car after "looking around" for him, then it changes my perceptions, but even getting out of the car going looking for the kid is still very provocative.
I get that, but he initially escalated the situation by his demeanor on the phone w/ the 911 folks.......... Terrell New
And yet, so much of this case revolves around the legality of using force if you feel threatened... Oci-One.Kanubi New
