There's absolutely nothing odd or threatening about walking home from the store.
Actually the police reports and the crime committed in the area is a matter of public record. Further, your neighborhood has nothing to do with it. And like I explained, he was exhibiting behavior that can be reasonably defined as odd to a neighborhood watchmen.
All of that however is irrelevant:
The crime committed by Martin is when he returned to Zimmerman and started a fight with him. To his credit, I guess, was that he was winning. And that's why he got shot, because Zimmerman though his life was in danger.
