If a kid was rushing toward him, I do not believe he was reaching for a cell phone. Anyone would have reached for a gun.
He was going to call back the police, he was to meet them. I’m sure it was on speed dial. Who said he was rushing towards him?
If he even saw him approaching. It sounds like he didn't see him until he was right next to him.
"Zimmerman attended a four-month law-enforcement program in 2008 at the sheriff's office, said Kim Cannaday, spokeswoman for the Seminole County sheriff's office."
This training is probably why the gun stayed in the holster as long as it did.
Kid wasn't rushing at him, they were standing talking when TM hit Zimmerman in the face and then jumped on him. It has all been well documented.
