Z also had a criminal record so that kind of cancels things out. Confrontation in the dictionary isn't ignoring a 9/11 operator. The confrontation happened when Martin supposedly attacked Zimmerman. Following somebody in a car isn't confrontation.
If he dealt drugs, he dealt drugs. It's not your job to determine character, and even if it was, character has nothing to do with what actually happened. What we do know is that Zimmerman was A) substantially larger and B) Zimmerman had a gun, and Martin did not. Regardless of whatever people who do not know either of them are projecting onto this thing.
If Martin himself felt threatened, he would have been protected by Stand your ground. If 911 TOLD Zimmerman NOT to pursue, because HE IS A CIVILIAN AND NOT A POLICE OFFICER, then he must be held solely responsible for the initiating the confrontation. Following somebody in a car is INITIATING the confrontation. INITIATING being the key word here.
A) Was an armed neighborhood watch captain, who initiated the confrontation
B) Was substantially larger in physique (I dunno about all of you but I feel kind of threatened anytime I'm followed by someone bigger then me, it's kind of human nature)
C) Had a firearm
Connect the dots people..... and try not jumping to conclusions. Remember when Casey Anthony got off scot free? This really isn't that much different. Who are the people who care the most about this? Black people, derp. It's not a race war. It's not a zero sum game here.
