If someone was following me through a neighborhood at night, I would turn around and try to whip the shyte out of them, too.
Zimmerman should have taken his ass whoopin' like a man and left the gun out of it.
After voicing his displeasure with these guys(criminals/burglars" in his mind) always getting away, Zimmerman got out of his car with a GUN and followed someone he admits to thinking is a criminal. Geez. You can't get any more intent than that.
Prosecution did a shoddy job, imo.
ps how can you chase someone and be "standing your ground"? lol
