    we were being followed in the dark with no one else around,  would run or walk away fast--that is try to get out of the situation. I know I would. So it's not apparent to me--and I assume to the jury--why a fight ensued. In which case it's entirely possible that Trayvon turned back and confronted  Zimmerman.  I guess it's possible that Zimmerman confronted Trayvon. We just don't know.

      Trayvon reached his house, turned around, saw Zimmerman still coming at him and confronted. My guess is he felt cornered. It's clear as day to me that Zimmerman was pursuing him from the NEN call.

    •  He did run. (0+ / 0-)

      Zimmerman told the police dispatcher: "He's running."

      Zimmerman then chased after him.

      Martin would not have wanted to lead the creep home, so he waited to make sure Zimmerman didn't follow. When he saw the creep was still following him, Martin said: "Why are you following me?"

      Zimmerman lied and said he wasn't following.

      What would you do then? And what would Zimmerman do if you turned and walked away after he had just caught up with the "fucking asshole" who always gets away?

      A waist is a terrible thing to mind.
