Admittedly I only have the information I obtain from the news related to the shooting death of Trayvon Martin by Florida community watch captain George Zimmerman. Of course from a legal standpoint this is all still heresay as no one is under oath but I believe there are some underlying facts that we can assume based upon what I've heard. George Zimmerman did call 911 to report a suspicious individual and was advised to stay in his vehicle. This is not a "command" by law enforcement but instead is advice by the 911 operator. George Zimmerman disregarded the 911 operators advice to stay in his vehicle and wait for law enforcement and pursued Trayvon Martin. It has been reported that Martin was on his cell phone with his girlfriend and expressed that he felt threatened by an unknown person pursuing him. This is, at this point, heresay but we can understand that if a person begins to pursue any of us that we would consider it to be a threatening action. Under the law if one person presents a threat to another person it is "assault" even though no physical confrontation takes place. "Assault" under the law is just the threat and not anything else. We often hear the charge of "Assault and Battery" and the assault is the threat while battery is the actual physical attack. A person is within their legal rights to physically defend themselves against an "Assault" by another individual. George Zimmerman, based upon all I've read, was committing the criminal act of assault and because he was in possession of a firearm Trevyon Martin could rightfully be considered as defending himself against possibly being murdered by Zimmerman when he turned to confront Zimmerman. A person cannot claim self-defense if they're the one that initiated the assault on the other individual which is what Zimmerman and the local police seem to be saying. Based upon what I've read this is going to be a matter for a Grand Jury to decide as to whether Zimmerman should be charged and I don't see anyway that they can come to any other conclusion than Zimmerman initiated an assault against Martin and that Martin was the one acting in self-defense. I don't see how any other conclusion can be reached based upon the law. I'm anticipating a Grand Jury indictment for Assault and Murder aganist Zimmerman as Zimmerman cannot be acting in self-defense when he initiated an armed assault against Martin based upon everything I've read.
