A kid walks through a neighborhood with some candy, and a guy with a gun reports him in a 911 call. Then he follows the kid, despite being advised not to by the 911 staff. Then he shoots the kid to death. Sounds like murder to me, maybe first degree. That is, premeditated. How far in advance do you have to plan it for it to be more than manslaughter?
No charges have been brought since the great state of Florida condones such behavior as justifiable self-defense. After all, Zimmerman felt threatened. Umm…so do I.
