@Ivran ok. He said he wasn't going to run but walk fast. He also asked Zimmerman why he was FOLLOWING him. If some stranger was following me I`m going to be prepared to defend myself. What would you do if a strange man was following you at night?

@5cats Zimmerman did approach Martin according to Martin's friend who was on the phone with him at the time. Martin stated that a strange man was following him and his friend advised him to run. Zimmerman chased Martin down and the scuffle began. I never called Zimmerman racist nor blood thirsty but he was being a vigilante and he took it too far and because he did a young man is dead. Whether Zimmerman was getting his ass kicked or was kicking ass doesn`t matter. He still pursued Martin unprevoked which resulted in Martins death. He should have listened to the police and left it alone.

@Satkela: There's two main flaws in your timeline: 1) we do not know if Z approached M or the other way around. We only have Z`s word on that. 2) IF M attacked Z, and his head was getting bashed into the sidewalk, the by golly YES he can, legally, draw his weapon to defend himself!
Both these things are open to question. Claiming to "know" that Z is a "bloodthirsty vigilanti" is pure speculation.
Did you know Zimmerman passed out leaflets calling for justice in the police killing of a black man? How racist is that! Oh wait it`s NOT!
Too bad you`re unlikely to read this, just thought I`d mention it.
