Apparently stand your ground only applied to Zimmerman that night....makes me sick. Everyone warn your children to not defend themselves against a man following them in the dark.

The police had instructed him to stop

Sure he stopped to ask why Zimmerman was following. I'd try to defend myself if some strange man was following me too.

No, the 911 operator said "we don't need you to do that." And the 911 operator is not a voice of the law, regardless.

Exactly, as far as I have heard he was told not to follow him. If someone was following me like that in the middle of the night I would be like what the f**k do you want? And yes a fight would probably start.

I forgot you're not allowed to wear hoodies because people might think you're a burglar.



Point is, Zimmerman should have listened to the REAL police and stayed in his car.

Right? I'd be like why the f**k are you following me? And I would defend myself.

Stalking can be defined as the willful and repeated following, watching and/or harassing of another person.



And if you start a fight with an armed person in a SYG state there is a chance you will be shot.

The evidence wasn't there. The prosecution did a fine job. They used all that they could. They lacked evidence to bring forth.



Unfortunately, I feel that GZ will pay for this, anyway.

Walking through a gated community, in a hoodie, at night, when there have been recent burglaries, is suspicious.



The "real" police didn't tell him anything. A 911 operator did.

Right? I could run, and potentially be chased or get shot from a distance, or I could defend myself and eventually get away or die trying. Like wtf, its a no win situation, what the hell are you going to do?
