put yourself in Zimmerman's position and tell us what you would have done differently?
now also remember, you and i and most everyone else that's discussing this, has had several months to mull over the facts and think what they might have done or have done differently. Zimmerman made those choices in mere moments, not months.
he notices a person wearing dark clothing out and about with his actions looking suspicious at a late hour of the night, in a neighborhood that has already seen some burglaries in the past few weeks an your on a neighbor hood watch patrol, and have called 911 on your phone and have them on the line. you're attacked or confronted by that person.
that's pretty much what Zimmerman was facing. now put yourself in Zimmerman's shoes and tell us how you would have reacted differently.
