Just my opinion
Just hope it was real bullies he hosed and not just some random kids he thought looked like bullies for no fathomable reason.
Would you say that a child running into the street caused their death, or would you say being hit by a car caused their death.
That's the analogy here.
I'd say the child running into the street didn't cause the death. It was being run over by the car that caused it.
Similarly, GZ believing Trayvon was acting suspiciously didn't cause Trayvon's death. GZ following Trayvon didn't cause his death.
The physical altercation (that no one impartial knows who started) caused the death. IMHO as always.
It was reported that GZ was crying in his cell the first night in jail. I wonder how many nights and days his parents have cried, mourned, and how they will for the rest of their lives. My heart truly goes out to all who loved Trayvon.
"I was intrigued about the time Trayvon got caught in school with the jewelry, the teacher noticed Trayvon was "acting suspiciously" and investigated, and found the jewelry and screwdriver in his possession."
That is not a true statement. There was no teacher, and it was not because he was acting suspicious that his bag was searched.
In October, a school police investigator said he saw Trayvon on the school surveillance camera in an unauthorized area “hiding and being suspicious.” Then he said he saw Trayvon mark up a door with “W.T.F” — an acronym for “what the f---.” The officer said he found Trayvon the next day and went through his book bag in search of the graffiti marker.

You can't just make up facts.
And since he claims he was on the ground getting beat up then he might not have been able to escape.
Prosecution will have to disprove his version of events beyond a reasonable doubt for them to get a conviction.
And as far as I can tell I have reasonable doubt a plenty.
Just my opinion
I'm honestly not understanding the difference between the two characterizations "hiding and being suspicious" and "behaving suspiciously" or however the exact wording went that GZ used in describing his read of Trayvon's behavior that night.
"Hiding and being suspicious" and "behaving suspiciously" are the same thing. That's a hair way to fine for me to waste any more time splitting. The entire point I'm making here, is that for some reason - to too adults, his behavior appears suspicious. I would like to see that behavior.
