I would like to challenge your supposed fact that Zimmerman approached Trayvon, this is no proof of this. Zimmerman was following Trayvon and was told that it was not necessary and as noted in his breathing on the phone it sounded like he stopped. He also had noted he lost site of Trayvon and was only walking to the next house to acquire an address. Let the facts come out in court and we should not assume either one of us is correct. Let the evidence determine the truth.

1) Martin's girlfriend reported that the last thing she heard while on the phone with Martin was Martin's asking, "Why are you following me?" followed by Zimmerman's "What are you doing here?"

2) Zimmerman finally asked the 911 operator to have the police call him when they arrived. What that says to me is that Zimmerman may have intended to continue pursuit and, in addition to being unsure where he was at the time, was unsure if he'd still be there when the police arrived (i.e., he was going to continue his pursuit).

Whether either of these things prove Zimmerman continued to follow Martin after the call ended is disputable, but they can be interpreted that way.

To keep former Army 1st Lt. Michael Behenna behind bars until 2024 for the "unpremeditated murder" of an insurgent during the war in Iraq, U.S. military prosecutors have resorted to strange and disturbing twists of law, logic and morality. They were all on display again this week in Behenna's final plea before the military's highest court of appeals in Washington, D.C. It was enough to make the gold eagle on top of the American flag in the courtroom shake and then hang its head.

Or so I imagined while listening intently as questions from the five civilian judges began to drill...
