So the deal is this vigilante can't fight. He accosted someone because they were walking slowly in the rain. Maybe that's why he had his hood on. Wow.Zimmerman described Martin as suspicious because he was wearing a hooded sweatshirt and walking slowly in the rain, police later told residents at a town hall.
A dispatcher told him to wait for a police cruiser, and not leave his vehicle.
But about a minute later, Zimmerman left his car wearing a red sweatshirt and pursued Martin on foot between two rows of townhouses, about 70 yards from where the teen was going.
Now every murder is by default self defense unless police have evidence that it's not? Wow.
