So what do y'all think, did Martin also have the right to "stand his ground" against Zimmerman? What would y'all have done if in Martin's position in this incident?
Good question Glenn.
But I think that standing your ground had to do with response to physical attack.
Granted Z did not act prudently in following Martin after being told by 911 not to.
But...following someone is not an attack. And Fear of being followed is not a physical attack.
The question would be...who threw the first punch?
From what we know Martin launched an attack ... punched Z and then slammed his head into the concrete.
Why did he attack? Was he pre-empting some attack by Z?
I think this is the crux of the matter.
Not clear cut but let us place ourselves in the Z shoes.
You get punched ...and your head is slammed in the concrete...and your attacker is now on top of you to finish his work.
Even if you want to run away from the fight, now you can't.
Did Z really stand his ground? Or was he pinned to the ground unable to get away?
