What is being said, however, is that Trayvon threatened to kill Zimmerman and went for Zimmerman’s gun. These elements, in addition to the pummeling, justify Zimmerman firing his weapon in self-defense. Still, if it were possible, Zimmerman should have shot to wound. Under these circumstance’s, Trayvon’s death is a tragic accident. Remove one or two of the elements of self-defense, and we’re talking manslaughter. Remove enough of the elements, and we’re talking murder. The police on the scene that the wasn’t enough elements to arrest Zimmerman on the spot and the District Attorney has empaneled a grand jury to see if there is probable cause. The system is working the way it should.
Shooting to wound is illegal if you are a CCW holder. If you are justified in shooting then you shoot to kill because you fear for your life. Shooting to wound implies you had no fear of your life, therefore you had no right to shoot. Shooting to wound only happens in old 1940s western movies.
