I live by a fairly simple rule, if I don't want any physical confrontation with anyone, I don't touch them. Let alone hit them.

Were only speculating here but it seems like more could have been done on Zim's part to avoid all of this than Martin's part.

you two are overthinking this whole thing for what reason I have no idea.

When a stranger has been following you points a gun at you and grabs you....the first thing you do is get the gun away from him and THEN pin him down and make him submit. Maybe a punch or two but only enough that is necessary to make him submit.

I find it very hard to believe that a gun was out because Trayvon would have put the gun at priority number one instead of the sucker punch that was priority number one.

K...I agree with you and have said this over and over already. Getting kind of tired of repeating this.

Zimmmerman and Trayvon could both have done things differently to avoid this.

It doesn't matter...if you don't have any evidence or eyewitness statements saying that Zimmerman started the physical confrontation then you must go with what evidence there is and go with the story that Zimmerman tells. You can't convict someone of a crime based on evidence that isn't there or isn't extractable.

Get it?

So the absence of evidence contradicting something you believe, a belief which has no evidence to support it, is meaningful?

However the fight started, imo Z provoked it either by fear & intimidation or physically grabbing or trying to hold him or a combo of both. You Z supporters keep trying to put a ribbon & bow on this thing, but imo you can't even get the wrappin paper straight 

I can't get the wrapping paper straight?

Er, I'm not the one who believes things that a) are not true and b) have no evidence to support them.

You're not "ignoring" anything?

Really? Because you're ignoring the fact that the GF didn't call anybody by simply pretendnig she didn't want to get involved.

You're simply making things up.
