    When George Zimmerman left his home armed on the night of the Trayvon Martin shooting... was he on neighborhood "watch"  observing only suspicious conduct or on George Zimmerman's "patrol"... ready to track a suspect, interrogate the suspect and apprehend him if necessary? What was his State of Mind when he left his home? ARMED

      ...neither...  Zimmerman got out of his car to confront Trayvon, however, at that point, he should have been double---tripple sure that Trayvon was armed and dangerous before taking out his gun and shooting him.  He took out his gun and shot and killed an individual who was not armed, on the premise that he was armed....

    My guess is he had it in his mind he was going to shoot someone sooner or later, if only the opportunity were to present itself, although not completely conscious. The gun became who he was.

      Do you think he was on "watch" or "patrol"?

    Patroller no doubt.

    I would imagine more of a patrol because it is a choice to leave home armed even when it was clearly written and said that they were to be unarmed watchmen and women. Having a gun ups the ante and in this case someone died as a result of his choices, not their own.

          Was he on "watch" or "patrol" in your opinion? Make a call!

                I am responding to enlighten you of the stupidity of attempting to guess what was on his mind.

          Ditto!...  I don't think anyone will ever know what was going on in this idiot's mind.  Bottom line he killed Trayvon, and it seems as if the vote is unanimous, because, for the first time ever I see both right/left agreeing that Zimmerman was guilty of the crime.

            Should we form a posse now?
