I heard that while on the phone he had lost sight of Trayvon. Something happened in between that time, and then Zimmerman was getting back to his truck when he was attacked by Trayvon. Trayvon was apparently on top of Zimmerman when he shot and killed Trayvon. From this point of view it wasn't Zimmerman who did the confronting.

So Zimmerman was probably trying to ward off crime in his mind. Whether it was right or not to follow someone, who knows. Should Zimmerman have been attacked violently for that though?

If that is what happened, then in my mind it is justified.

Granted, the facts are so twisted who knows what happened.
Yeah it seems like there is a big lack of facts.
