    question: why does the dried blood trail on Zmimmerman flow towards the front. If he was knocked down, unless he laid on his stomach, his blood would have run down his back, even if he had stood up, but if he was leaning down over Travon, then the flow of his blood would be forward. If I was walking home in the dark, and a stranger started following me, approached me without ID'ing themselves, i would probably become defensive. Zimmerman was told by police to stand down, he is not a certified law enforcement officer. He did not have the authority to use deadly force.

    There are many possible scenarios here. Maybe it was Trayvon who was standing his ground. If he was scared because a strange man was following him for no reason he quite possibly turned around and confronted him and asked why. If Zimmerman uttered derogatory remarks and Trayvon saw the gun, then he had a right to protect himself. Of course, Zimmerman pretends he was the good guy. He will never really tell the truth about the conversation. If he had stayed in his van like the dispatcher told him to do and wait for the police, an innocent young lad would not be dead. Simple as that. He should be charged with careless use of a firearm and manslaughter.

    Thought for the day, Trayvon Martin surely had the same rights as anyone, including "Stand Your Ground". He had the law behind him during any scuffle/confrontation!
