Had Trayvon gone to the street where he was staying instead of thinking the back way would be faster, there would have been lights. But he still would have been going in the direction of the back entrance. The prosecution suggested that if Z was afraid Trayvon would escape via the back entrance, he could have driven his car there.

    •  How could GZ know where TM would eventually run? (1+ / 0-)

      I can see three possible directions for TM to run

      1. Turning back between the houses to the initial street
      2. Running down that back lane
      3. Cutting through the houses to reach the other street

      Plus being so dark he could have hidden for a while and then ran in any of those directions.

      If his goal was to maintain visual contact, I can understand why he would get out to follow even though clearly it was not a smart thing to do.
