Well on what notion do people presume he tried to detain him?
This guy said in a call to cops about someone else suspicious ''I don't want to approach him''
When following to give instructions, he kept a fair distance.
He PASSED a lie detector test about the incident
It wouldn't look good if you were told by cops to stop following and you then tried to illegally detain someone
It just doesn't add up. It's possible but certainly not proven he tried to find out where this guy had gone. But detain him? Especially somebody quite taller than him? It's simply people's imagination running wild.
On the same notion that you presume that Martin attacked him. You don't know, therefore it could have happened like that.
If you can't see that the fight could have occurred because Zimmerman tried to hold him up, then you need to take a step back because you are assuming just like the people that assumed Zimmerman followed him to shoot him.
