The Zimmerman trial. Analogy. You shoot a gun into what you believe is an empty house and kill a person inside that house. You will likely face criminal homicide charges. Zimmerman, in my view, was the aggressor with a gun who by his sole, deliberate choice and act put himself into the face-to-face situation with Martin. Along the line of the house analogy, it does not matter that Zimmerman had neither expected nor intended to kill Martin. But he did. And, Zimmerman is criminally responsible in my opinion.
