One would think that a neighborhood watch group would have a policy of non confrontation. Report what they see and do not confront unless a serious crime is being committed and lives are in jeopardy.

Well you know...skittles possession is a class B felony in the minds of some people and requires the use of deadly force to prevent.

Exactly. I guess I'm an oldster now but danged if our neighborhood watch goes to the store armed.
In fact the people who volunteer for this are usually compliant with the police and just let them handle it as soon as possible.

***And let me say I used spell check for differently and it came out differential. I hate that! But I should have paid more attention in second grade.

A scared skittishness of skittles may scar one for life.

It's a natural response when someone is beating your head on the ground and goes for your gun. Your life is in danger.

Only a fool would sacrifice their life for a criminal.

Then I guess Trayvon was a fool. He should've killed Zimmerman in order to protect his life.
Or perhaps he was just a frightened and unarmed kid, outweighed by nearly a hundred pounds by an armed man eleven years his senior.

How could that have influenced his deciding to take a gun with him to the store (providing that happened)?

What makes you think Martin wasn't trying to kill Zimmerman? Martin was the no limits guy who rejected the schools authority so thoroughly he was suspended 3 times. He was also a sizeable young man at 6' 3" and around 20 lbs less than Zimmerman. Given the disparity in their height, the difference in weight is inconsequential. Why was it necessary to generate a false narrative depicting Obama's son as the helpless child?
