  •  911 operators don't issue "instructions" ... (0+ / 0-)

    which amount to orders that must be obeyed.  Citizens are free to follow their advice, but may do anything they wish as long as it doesn't involve breaking a law.  In fact, the operator didn't even issue an instruction, she merely said "we don't need you to do that" (i.e., track Martin).  She did not ask Zimmerman to remain in his vehicle, or anything of that nature.

    Further, there is NO evidence Zimmerman "attacked" Martin.  There is considerable evidence, however, that Martin attacked Zimmerman ... evidently following an ambush.  

    Let's wait until we see what evidence is actually introduced in court, and how the jury interprets it, since neither your opinion nor mine matters not one whit.  The jury will render a verdict, and that will be that.

      ...Zimmermann if you like.  It just cements my view of you.  I would rather not support a gun toting racist that stalked and killed an unarmed child.

      We Glory in war, in the shedding of human blood. What fools we are.
