ConserveGov, are you aware that Mr. Zimmerman was the one who first suggested a neighborhood watch shortly after he moved into the neighborhood? That the reason he was alone that night was because his neighbors felt there was no need for a watch since crime in that neighborhood was nearly nonexistent? It was certainly not under siege^.Mr. Zimmerman is guilty of ignoring the 911 operator when he was told “We don’t need you to do that” when Mr. Zimmerman admitted he was still following his ‘target’. He is also guilty of getting out of his car to confront the now dead “thug high on drugs” as you describe him.^ Mr. Zimmerman had called 911 over 60 times since becoming a ’Watchman". His own recorded words show he was frustrated because his targets “always get away”. I never heard that any of his 911 calls resulted in an arrest of someone guilty of a crime.^I do not believe Mr. Zimmerman is guilty of premeditated murder, but had he simply done one of two things… obeyed the 911 operator or stayed in his car… Trayvon Martin would not be dead at his hand, and Mr. Zimmerman would not be having to look over his shoulder for the rest of his life. Because whether he goes to jail or is acquitted, there is an intolerant, bigoted, and angry person out there who wants to avenge the boy.It is an outcome without civility, and without respect between neighbors, it will only get worse.Respectfully,C.
