George Zimmerman, At It Again?

Boy, George Zimmerman seems dedicated to making sure that I keep getting wronger and wronger about the Treyvon Martin case...

I never did really explain why I switched over to the Zimmerman is probably innocent side...  But boy, was I wrong.

It seems clearer and clearer that the guy is a freaking psycho.

George Zimmerman, gun-show hero.

Oh man. That makes you ashamed to be human.

I had to double check to make sure it wasn't another of those so-called satire pieces, but criminal thug murderers are going to act like criminal thug murderers.

Yeah, I still have no idea why you ever thought he was likely innocent. I respect your disinclination to join the Zimmerman-is-guilty party, and I think it was a valuable influence to have around during such a hyped-up incident, but...

Zimmerman started the whole incident, clearly expressed that he wanted Martin apprehended by police based on his own irrational paranoia, made an angry prediction that Martin would escape (that is, continue walking home...) before the police got there, and then dismissed the advice of the dispatcher and approached Martin himself. We don't know what happened next, but there was a fight and Zimmerman shot Martin.

How one can evaluate this situation and think it unlikely that Zimmerman was the aggressor is kinda beyond me. I can respect a position that holds for a reasonable doubt that Zimmerman attacked Martin (maybe Martin, being spooked, attacked Zimmerman first?), but a position that holds it unlikely that Zimmerman is a murderer is not one which I understand, and even in the case of Martin attacking Zimmerman out of fear, I would push for manslaughter charges against Zimmerman, having initiated and escalated the conflict as he did.
