If it's any consolation, I don't believe Mr. Zimmerman was racially motivated but he did go into that confrontation with the assumption that Trayvon Martin was a criminal. He had no business going into that encounter looking for trouble.

What I don't understand is why he got out of his car. How could he have possibly thought that was going to end well? Did he think that possessing a deadly weapon was going to convince anyone to act rationally?

An awful lot depends on why Trayvon was beating up on George. We have George's version but we'll never know Trayvon's.

I have to admit that at the point the gun went off, George may have been left with few other options. My only question is why did George ever get to the point where Trayvon could touch him. The police were on their way, the dispatcher told him to hold tight.
