Wth did I just wander into
**edit** who the hell commanded me to do anything I am not yours or anyone's property. That in and of itself show you have a slave master racist mentality. With that being noted I shall now add you to ignore. Goodbye Dumbass (in my Red Forman voice)

Many years ago, I lived in the city. We had a string of burlaries that went on for nearly 2 years in my neighborhood. We weren't sure if it was the same person/persons but it got people's attention and before long there were MANY neighborhood watch groups. Police don't prevent crimes and a meeting was held with the local precinct to discuss our options. The number 1 thing we were instructed to do by the police was to start a neighborhood watch. The funny thing about neighborhood watches is that people take turns volunteering patrols in certain areas, but when a person is "off duty" they don't stop being "concerned citizens". IOW, if I see someone wearing dark clothes running in between houses, I'm probably going to do something about it. I realize that Trayvon was probably NOT a burglar, but Zimmerman had NO way to know this until after the fact. I'm sure Zimmerman was sick of "these punks always getting away"! I would be sick of it too.

Zimmerman absolutely has a right to ask Martin a question, verbal exchange is not illegal in almost any scenario. Are you saying he isn't allowed to ask him where he got that sweet hoodie?
You are correct in that Martin had every right to tell him to fuck off. You are also correct on Zimmerman having no right to detain him, but that is just the wild conjecture of a few posters on this thread, there is ZERO evidence that documents Zimmerman trying to detain Martin, so far. That could change, obviously.

You don't KNOW much of anything about Martin, is he somehow beyond reproach and investigation, simply because he is dead? Even with another man's life and future in the balance? You can bet Zimmerman's attorney would love to find out Martin had previously broken into a home/car, it would be game, set and match. I'm not suggesting he ever did, but the relevance of the question is undeniable.
And by the way, what is the "WAY" you are, if you don't mind me asking?
