A better way to state it would be to say that Zimmerman knew he didn't to anything wrong, but was surprised to actually be charged with a crime for defending himself.
Anytime, someone is in the process of committing a crime and they get killed while the victim is trying to stop that crime, then it should never be considered anything more than manslaughter. Murder was always the wrong charge to file.
I wouldn't let Zimmerman off that easy ... he had seen this before and was mad and didn't want this person to get away .. that is why he followed him .... he said to the dispatcher that these guys always get away with this stuff ... when the dispatcher asked him if he was still following trayvon, he said yes, and was told he didn t have to do that ... so imo, he seemed like he was out to pick this fight, because he knew he had a gun ...
