Zimmerman used excessive force. It was a mutual fist fight and he only has his nose bleeding. THe same you would see outside any bar. Trayvon had no weapon, he was just throwing punches.
maybe if zimmerman was a woman, he would have more legs to stand on. she could say she thought it was a sexual attack.
That was my first gut instinct also. But the more I hear, the more I'm thinking that Zimmerman probably did ultimately act in self defense. None of us know all of the facts the police considered in deciding not to press charges. I have to wonder if there may have even been a struggle for control of the weapon. Whatever the case, Zimmerman put himself in a terrible position which led to this outcome.
Zimmerman’s nose was broken and he had lacerations on the back of his head that required stitches. Direct quotes from his lawyer on one of these threads. 911 call has screaming for help for 45 seconds, Trayvon’s father said the screaming was not his son’s voice.
