    Is it reasonable to maintain a LOS to an individual casing homes?

    Zimmerman's neighborhood had a long history of burglaries, particularly burglaries by an individual(s) matching Martin's general description. Martin was observed to be walking close to homes and looking inside them. We now know that Martin has a history of stealing (he was suspended for having stolen women's jewelry and tools for burglray in his locker), so it is very likely that he was looking for a home to burglarize and that Zimmerman was able to discern this intent from his highly suspicious behavior. I maintain that Zimmerman was entirely justified to exit his vehicle and maintain a line of sight to Martin so that the police could be informed of Martin's position.

    Of course he doesn't. What he has, what we all have, are the media reports of the break-ins. And this would be from a media predisposed NOT to report news that supports Zimmerman's defense.

    To the OP: Of course Z was justified in keeping an eye on M. It was just unwise to do so--as Z found out shortly later. M may not have been the precise kind of thug that Z initially suspected, but he was a thug nonetheless, a violent thug. Thugs don't like eyes being kept on them

    Since it's been established that it is reasonable to maintain a LOS to a "youth" who is casing homes (especially in a neighborhood plagued by burglaries from "youths"), why do "progressives" [sic] maintain that Zimmerman was incomprehensibly, immensely wicked for...*GASP*...getting out of his vehicle and following Martin from a large distance?
