    He (Zimmerman) was given an order to stop following Trayvon.

    Based on that alone, I'm one to believe Zimmerman was the instigator.

    flashlv: I'll ask again, what was illegal here?

    It was tragic, but following someone is not against the law.


    Actually, they are still investigating and charges may be ensuing. On the face of it, it looks likes the cop-a-be had a habit of making 911 calls and, in this instance, went against the cops wishes and followed the young man which probably increased the likelihood that something bad was going to happen. Especially when the follower was packing heat and appeared to be itching for a fight, if you bothered to listen to the 911 tapes. He had already decided the young man was a bad guy and was lamenting that those assholes always got away with it ... or something like that.

    Of course, I am just using common sense based upon the information that has been provided. I know that would be too much to ask of you.

    Further details that do not cast the shooter in a favorable light. This guy was looking to shoot someone.

    yep - flash lacks the "deductive reasoning" skill - where most of us can connect dots

    like a kid screaming in the background and then getting shot, clearly the KID is the aggressor here

    Several minutes later, according to other callers to 911 in the neighborhood, Zimmerman and Martin got into a wrestling match on the ground. One of the pair could be heard screaming for help. Then a single shot rang out, and Martin lay dead.


    I guessed well! What kind of 28-year-old lives alone in a gated community anyway? Kinda creepy if you ask me...

    I just joined this thread late and it was probably said before, but...

    I really don't understand this.

    Zimmerman, 28, who was bleeding from the nose and back of his head when police found him, claimed the two got in a scuffle and that he shot the boy in self-defense. Thus far, no charges have been filed against him.

    They have proof that he started this incident. He called 911 and the operator said, NO! Don't approach him."

    Then he approached him anyway. The only one that was threatened and attempting self defense was that boy who is dead now.

    How can this man possibly claim self defense if there is solid proof that he approached the boy and started this incident?

    If I approach you while you are minding your own business walking home and threaten you, you don't like being threatened and you say something back to me, then I get even closer and a scuffle ensues... but then you start kicking my ass so I have no choice but to shoot you, that's my self defense?

    Apologies for the length of the copypasta but I thought this was relevant.

    Lawful Self-Defense - Weapons - Division of Licensing, FDACS

    Q. Are there special laws that apply to the use of
    Handguns?

    A. Yes, special laws apply anytime anyone uses deadly force,
    whether or not the weapon is concealed. Florida law defines deadly force as
    force that is likely to cause death or great bodily harm. When you carry a
    handgun, you possess a weapon of deadly force. The law considers even an
    unloaded gun to be a deadly weapon when it is pointed at someone.

    Q. When can I use my handgun to protect myself?

    A. Florida law justifies use of deadly force when you are:



    Trying to protect yourself or another person from death or serious bodily
    harm;
    Trying to prevent a forcible felony, such as rape, robbery, burglary or
    kidnapping.


    Using or displaying a handgun in any other circumstances could result in your
    conviction for crimes such as improper exhibition of a firearm, manslaughter, or
    worse.

    Example of the kind of attack that will not justify defending yourself with
    deadly force: Two neighbors got into a fight, and one of them tried to hit the
    other by swinging a garden hose. The neighbor who was being attacked with the
    hose shot the other in the chest. The court upheld his conviction for aggravated
    battery with a firearm, because an attack with a garden hose is not the kind of
    violent assault that justifies responding with deadly force.

    Q. What if someone uses threatening language to me so that I am afraid for
    my life or safety?

    A. Verbal threats are not enough to justify the use of deadly force.
    There must be an overt act by the person which indicates that he immediately
    intends to carry out the threat. The person threatened must reasonably believe
    that he will be killed or suffer serious bodily harm if he does not immediately
    take the life of his adversary.

    Q. What if I see a crime being committed?

    A. A license to carry a concealed weapon does not make you a
    free-lance policeman. But, as stated earlier, deadly force is justified if you
    are trying to prevent the imminent commission of a forcible felony. The use of
    deadly force must be absolutely necessary to prevent the crime. Also, if the
    criminal runs away, you cannot use deadly force to stop him, because you would
    no longer be "preventing" a crime. If use of deadly force is not necessary, or
    you use deadly force after the crime has stopped, you could be convicted of
    manslaughter.

    Q. If I get a license to carry a concealed weapon, can I carry it
    anywhere?

    A. No. To get a license you must sign an oath that you have read and
    understand the Jack Hagler Self-defense Act (Section 790.06, Florida Statutes).
    That statute lists several places where you may not carry a concealed weapon.
    You should read subsection 12 for a complete list, but some examples are
    football, baseball, and basketball games (college or professional) and bars.

    A cool head and even temper can keep handgun carriers out of trouble. You
    should never carry a gun into a situation where you might get angry.

    Summary

    1. Never display a handgun to gain "leverage" in an argument, even if it
    isn't loaded or you never intend to use it.

    2. The amount of force that you use to defend yourself must not be excessive
    under the circumstances.


    Never use deadly force in self-defense unless you are afraid that if you
    don't, you will be killed or seriously injured;
    Verbal threats never justify your use of deadly force;
    If you think someone has a weapon and will use it unless you kill him, be
    sure you are right and are not overreacting to the situation.


    3. The law permits you to carry a concealed weapon for self-defense. Carrying
    a concealed weapon does not make you a free-lance policeman or a "good
    samaritan."

    no, a death threat would be "Flash I'm going to kill you"

    remember the other thread on this?

    Where the killer said "i was keeping him in eyesight" - how does a physical altercation happen if you are that far away?

    clearly he WAS WAY TOO CLOSE, and had been ordered by 911 to NOT FOLLOW
