Who would you say was the "mature man" between the two, Zimmerman, and Martin?

But that's not what the trial was about. The trial was, "did he kill him with a depraved mind with no regard to life". The verdict was no, and the evidence that's been made public makes me feel the verdict is just.
Getting out his truck searching for a suspect was not in his job description

And that's OK......

So is there anyone else out there who shoots left handed and uses their right eye? (this is an actual question)

Not sure either are exactly mature.. Maturity comes with exp, knowledge and exp.. Martin had little.. Z, his only mature action IMOO was to call 911 in the beginning.
Shooting Martin was a survival reaction, nothing more nothing less.

I believe the shooting was in self defense no doubt.
The actions leading up to the shooting is what troubles me. Should have never gotten to the point of self defense.
It's hard to view Z as mature when he went beyond the responsible action of dialing 911.

All I know is, that if I'm legitimately in a neighborhood to visit someone, and I get accosted and someone demands to know what I'm doing there, I will not be polite in my answer. It is not their business what I'm doing, and unless they catch me doing something illegal, they should just leave me the hell alone.

I'm not sure I believe that version.

I'm a 100% behind this though it's a free word to be where ever you want to be. If I'm not in the action of a crime and your not Law Enforcement I should not have to answer to you

Here's a thought for an open mind:
How long is it going to take before anyone tries to claim the prosecutor intentionally threw the case?
