Shooter in the wrong

In response to a recent article on Trayvon Martin, I am writing this letter. Of course people immediately throw some negative characteristics on Martin, like gang violence and drugs. Maybe Martin really was in a gang, but does that give (George) Zimmerman the right to shoot him? No. It is very clear from the dispatch calls that Mr. Zimmerman pursued Martin even though he was instructed not to by law enforcement. Once law enforcement tells you not to follow someone and you do, you are in the wrong. Jake Bagley, student, Rocklin
