Zimmerman had every legal right to carry.

He had every legal right to follow a suspicious character, who was under the influence of marijuana at the time. Interesting to note that in Zimmerman's call to police, he said "the guy looks like he's on drugs or something"

He was right. He was under the influence of drugs.

The witness closest to the event has testified Treyvon was on top of Zimmerman beating him up.

Zimmerman protected himself appropriately.

Note: The police did NOT tell Zimmerman NOT to follow.

They said "we don't need you to do that "

Anyone familiar with the police dispatch rules, they do NOT give explicit commands to either NOT do something or either DO something, for they don't want to be held liable.

And even if he was commanded not to follow(which he wasn't), Zimmerman stopped and began to return to his truck when attacked.

Treyvon had time to call 911.

He chose not to.

Treyvon had time to go home if he was scared of being followed.

he chose to attack

@george
This is an issue because the White House got involved. Teens are killed every week in Chicago, but Obama never says, "If I had a son, he would look like..."
So, Obama believes the police acted stupidly again and charges were eventually filed against Zimmerman.
This trial is a public education effort. They are attempting to show the public that the law is being followed and that this is not just a whitewash because the victim was black.
This is news because riots will ensue if Zimmerman is acquitted. The facts of the trial are a nice effort but will not stop the rioting.
