Only 2 know what really happened but most are running with a one side story. It's 2 sides to every story and one don't live to tell it.
Even if Trayvon Attack Zimmerman first Zimmerman never had orders to get out his truck. Once that happened he opened him self up to a bad situation. Let's just say what if Trayvon was a Thug with a gun Zimmerman left his safe zone to put his life in danger himself he should still be at fault.
Prove the profiling.
Yes, he followed - perfectly legal thing to do.
He confronted - with NO SUCH ORDERS to the contrary (or are you only going with the doctored version of the 911 tapes?
The Medical Examiner found wounds on TM's hands consistent with punching someone. GZ's wounds were a broken nose and injuries to the back of his head, consistent with getting your butt kicked.
Being followed by someone is not grounds to physically assault them. Especially since the assault came when GZ was returning to his vehicle.
Also, where are you getting "orders"? Civilian 911 operator has NO legal authority.
