According to his dad, George walked to the next street (Retreat View Circle). (Alice in Wonderland post #160 to moehoward)

Alice in Wonderland using George's dad's interview to determine where George walked.

I question everything George’s father said. I wasn’t there and neither was he. (Alice in Wonderland post #186 to Aunt Polgara)

Alice in Wonderland denying the accuracy of George's dad's statements.

Which is it? I'm sorry, but you can't have it both ways, Alice. George may have been ill advised to follow Martin, but there was nothing illegal about it. I'm sure he's ruing the day that things turned out the way they did; but if Trayvon attacked him, he had a perfect right to defend himself. Remember, the state has to prove that he broke the law, and nothing that I have seen comes anywhere near that proof.

... if Trayvon attacked him, he had a perfect right to defend himself.

That's a big "IF" ... which everyone assumes is "FACT". It's what George said and his family parroted. George also said Martin's last words were "Ya got me!" ... a line straight out of a B-grade movie.

And yes, I know George had a bloodied nose and cut to the back of his head. But that does not mean Trayvon threw the first punch. As far as I know, no one saw who started the fight, although witnesses saw it in progress.

According to the Affidavit of Probable Cause, Zimmerman disregarded the police dispatcher's instruction to stop following Martin. Instead, he continued to follow Martin, confronted Martin, and shot Martin after a struggle.

The affidavit also states that it is not a complete recitation of all the pertinent facts and evidence. It is merely a presentation for a determination for probable cause for second degree murder.

Actually, I was surprised with the murder charge since the lead homicide investigator had only recommended a manslaughter charge.
