Bull****. As I've been saying, if you (while armed) follow and harass someone (who's not armed) and not only have no authority to do so, but are specifically told by authorities NOT to do so (like Zimmerman), then you get your ass kicked as a result, it's not self-defense if you then shoot that person. The unarmed Martin was the one in a position of self-defense since it was the armed Zimmerman who initiated an unwanted, unauthorized pursuit of him. By your idiotic logic, a mugger who has the tables turned on him by his victim could shoot that victim and then claim self-defense. Trayvon was the one rightfully in self-defense mode, whether or not he was on top during the scuffle.
