    happened? [imagine this-] IF Trayvon followed Zimmerman back to the truck, IF he had thrown a large can of iced tea at the back of Z's head and then socked Z in the nose, IT WOULD STILL BE Z'S FAULT FOR GOING THERE AND BOTHERING TRAYVON.

    But as far as I can understand it, the confrontation occurred  on and around an inner sidewalk that Z had to walk/run to because his truck couldn't even get in there...
    Where in that gated community does Z live anyway? NOT planning to go there, just wondering what made him "captain of the watch" and King of the Hill anyway.

      Sorry, I can't remember what site I downloaded it from, so no provenence unfortunately:

      The townhouse Martin was staying at is at "D".

      Zimmerman's truck is parked at "C".

      The shooting scene is at "F" - looks to me to be at least 200ft from the truck and certainly not consistent with the claim of looking for a street sign.

        radical simplicity

        Zimmerman was between the buildings, stalking and confronting Trayvon.  

        The "looking for a street sign" and then "being attacked from behind" (wouldn't he have scrapes on his face instead of the back of his head?) story is pure bullshi#!
