According to testimony, Trayvon Martin allegedly went out of George Zimmerman's sight. Zimmerman went looking but, shortly after that Trayvon came out of dark and hit Zimmerman in the face, breaking his nose. Even Rachel Jeantel, the prosecutor's witness has said Trayvon struck Zimmerman.

With that said, in interviews after the trial Jeantel also said she told Trayvon that Zimmerman could be a "gay rapist" and apparently told him to watch out.  If she was telling the truth, what her warning did was set Trayvon on edge who felt he had to defend himself. She, in effect, established a very negative frame of mind in Trayvon.

Intent frequently, is the motivating factor in determining events.  It is certainly not beyond the realm of possibility that it was, in fact, the state of mind in Trayvon that caused him to act the way he did. Was that Zimmerman's fault or Jeantel's?

The real sad thing behind this whole thing is the president had the opportunity to col racial tensions but instead helped to elevate those tensions . More Black on white violence in the name of Trayvon Martin. Thank you Obama
And speaking of phony scandals,this was it.
