    Stand your ground works both ways. Had Trayvon Martin whipped out a pistol and shot George Zimmerman, Florida's self defense law would have applied to him as well.
       Of course, there would probably be differences in how the case would be handled, but on the facts, Martin would have walked...coming home from the store, assailed by an armed thug who'd been warned not to follow, etc. He would have had a much better case than Zimmerman has.
       Zimmerman is just a homicidal thug, a sweltering cesspool of resentment. He's not in a conspiracy with anybody.
