    In that it seems it is unknown, except by Robert Zimmerman, the extent of Robert's provocation of Trayvon, is there a reason why the defense would not have simply used stand our ground to dispose of the case without all the expense and publicity of a trial if it was so clear that Robert was innocent or that his provocation was nothing more than following Trayvon?

    If Robert wants to dispel the ambiguity of his not guilty verdict and try to heal society a little, shouldn't he now be willing to submit to a lie detector test to answer the questions as to the extent of his further acts of provocation? Did he tell Trayvon he had a gun? Did he show it to him? Did attempt a citizens arrest of Trayvon? If Trayvon saw the gun or was advised Robert had one and felt threatened would during the struggle been justified in reaching for Trayvon's gun in attempt to use deadly force against the apparent deadly force displayed by Robert?
