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.
#1 I would have just stayed in my truck and keep searching around for him if he was hidden by time law enforcement got there he would have been some where still hidden.
#2 I would not have got out my truck to go search for a suspect on foot that I lost a site on
If I did I probably would have got out hand close to gun to attempt to freeze him up before and set an attack on me. Try leave my self space not to get ambushed make sure I can see everything around me and don't got near any dark spots
But I would not put myself in that situation from the start
And an other thing Zimmerman could have did to help it maybe talk out loud
State his name
Mention he was town watch that's why he was following him
Say he don't want no trouble
Maybe he could gain trust
