Like I stated before, when I was considering joining a watch group, we were told we were not to approach or engage suspicious persons, only to get as good a description as possible.
I don’t think there are any special "rules" for neighborhood watches. They would operate under the same laws as any private citizen.
There’s no law against wearing hoodies.
There’s no law against being black in the mostly white area.
There’s no law against following someone you thing doesn’t belong where he is.
There’s no law against confronting said person.
There are laws against attacking someone. Whoever did that first if the guilty party here.
Zimmerman won the fight because he had the gun, and gets to tell his story. If Martin had won we’d be hearing his story.
