He may not have been holding it, he may have pulled it out and put it back in his waist band. I just think it's odd that you won't for one second think that it was Trayvon standing his ground, when it was Zimmerman who initiated this entire chain of events. Standing your ground doesn't mean you need to shoot a person either, it could mean you kick the **** out of them.
I assume you didn't follow the trial.
Star prosecution witness detailed what happened up until a punch was thrown. She was on the phone with him when the first punch was thrown. TM said "crazy-*** cracker is following me" and "Why you following me?" Then a punch was thrown. No mention of a gun. Don't you think he would have mentioned a gun?
She testified that Martin told her that a “creepy-*** cracker” was following him but that he thought he had evaded him. But she said a short time later, Martin let out a profanity.
Martin said the man was behind him, and Jeantel heard Martin ask: “What are you following me for?”
She then heard what sounded like Martin’s phone drop into the grass and she heard him say, “Get off! Get off!”
The phone then went dead, she said.
I can't tell anything from that, you tell me Encyclopedia Brown.
