OK, until we all hear the evidence at trial, I don't think it is fair to say whether Zimmerman was justified or not. The problem I do have with the case is that Zimmerman, even if justified in killing Travon, should never have approached him in the first place. Zimmerman was involved in the neighborhood watch program, but was not a policeman, dressed like a policeman, or trained like a policeman. In my opinion, unless they observe an actual crime in progress, a Burglary, Armed Robbery, or a shooting, a neighborhood watch volunteer should never approach anyone. That's what 911 is for, call the police and let them ask the questions of someone suspicious. If the police can't get there fast enough, get a license plate, description, etc. to 911. For all we know, Travon could have thought Zimmerman was trying to rob him, a stranger approaches and follows him in an unmarked car with no uniform identifying who he is. If Travon was actually committing a crime, Burglary, etc., there obviously would not be the controversy that surrounds this case.
