    Someone, please – help me understand this.
    Zimmerman stands by his story of shooting in self defense, siting the injuries inflicted by Trayvon. BUT, Trayvon's hands were full: cell phone, can of iced tea. And at some point he knew he was being followed, and HE must have felt threatened and the need to defend himself. So how can Zimmerman, with a gun, who approached Martin, who fought out of fear (pretty normal reaction to me – I'd do the same!) claim he reacted in self defense??
