    It is strange that the fight ended in almost exactly the same place that GZ lost sight of Trayvon three minutes prior. This means that Trayvon was running away from his stalker at the rate of a a Mummy vs Mummy. Also Obama needs to explain to people that just because somebody looks at you funny is not a good reason to jump them.

    No one has the right to ever assault another person. Even a single punch to the head can be a lethal attack. There are many cases of people dying from the resulting concusion from a single punch to the head.

    If someone chooses to act without self control and attack another person like an animal, then that person better be prepared to be put down as an animal. Everyone has the right to defend themselves from assault.

    Cheers to Zimmerman for defending himself and his Neighbors.

    @Scott, self defense doesnt apply to those that "ass-u-me" that someone is suspicious and then follows that person after being asked by a police dispacher not too;that is considered as provoking a situation,and after approaching the person it's considered initiating contact in which case "Stand Your Ground" doesnt/shouldn't apply.. Trayvon Martin had every right to defend himself against a weirdo,which he didnt know, that was following him in his car and then gets out on foot and chases him.. George Zimmerman got over-zealous in thinking he was a part of law enforcement,and maybe now he can have an even better feeling of what it's like to be in law enforcement everyday seeing that he's probably going to be wearing a bulletproof vest for a good chunk of his life .. i hate to say it, but you're still a major part of whats wrong with the thinking in this country even after everythiing America has already been through

    If an armed person chooses to pursue another person, and if that pursuit results in a confrontation that ends badly, then the armed person must take some or all of the responsibility.

    You're right. Every person has the right to defend themselves from assault. Even if that assualt comes in the form of a pointed gun.
