- Trayvon had snacks while heading back to his father's girlfriend's home (who he was visiting) to play video games and watch the All-Star game.
- Before Trayvon even knew Zimmerman existed, he was being watched and accused of not belonging there. Zimmerman detailed it all while talking to a police dispatcher before the event.
- Zimmerman has a documented history of calling the police on black kids. He saw a black kid, made very clear statements to the dispatcher that he was black, then made comments about people that he thinks somehow relate to Trayvon, "always get away" after cursing them.
- Something happened in between, Zimmerman fatally shot Trayvon, and now we're here.
Does anyone disagree that if Zimmerman had not pursued Trayvon that this all could of been avoided? Even if we don't agree on why Zimmerman decided to follow Trayvon and if he was just in his decision to do so. From the call with the police dispatcher, (to me) it sounds like Zimmerman had the ability to leave Trayvon alone and decided not to.
