Not worth too much to me.
The apology: He was looking at the lawyer, not the family. And that fuckin' website of his just totally cancels out his apology for me. He had to apologize according to his lawyers, so he did.
As for the photo... I never disbelieved that there was a struggle. It's the stalking with a gun part and ignoring police about backing off before hand that makes me believe he's guilty of manslaughter (not second degree murder). It makes sense to me that Trayvon reacted to being stalked home by this guy, not knowing why he was being followed, hence a possible struggle between the two (I imagine something along the lines of: Trayvon: "Hey, why the fuck are you following me man?! Wtf?! (trying to be intimidating)" Zimmerman has a gun and aims it at him. Trayvon reacts by maybe pushing him or something, or jumping on him or whatever, Zimmerman lands on the back of his head - since Trayvon had no weapons, those head wounds must be from his head hitting the ground). That is just what I've imagined happened from what facts I've heard.
Following =/= Stalking/Harrassment...
Just because someone is walking behind you does not give you the permission to attack them...
The point at which someone is following/annoying and becomes a physical threat are two different things...
It also sounds like you have a hard time of conceiving facts... WHy would zimmerman just pull the gun out and try and kill him when he just got done calling the cops and reporting what he was doing???
Really? If Trayvon felt his safety was threatened by Zimmerman because he was following him (WITH A GUN), which seems reasonable, especially since Zimmerman surely was animated and acting in an intimidating and kind of predatory way given his motives in following him, then according to Florida law, Trayvon has the right to attack Zimmerman! Aaaannnd this is why the stand your ground law is so stupid! Trayvon stands his ground and gets killed. And why would Zimmerman pull out his gun? I think because he was having a Dirty Harry moment, honestly.
