Being black, I actually wouldn't hold it against white person if they were in the hood walking alone and suspected a black man in a car following them slowly of being a jackboy trying to jux them. I'm not from the hood myself and look at a lot of blacks who live there with fear and distrust.

If you're outside of your socioeconomic element and find yourself being watched, the thoughts going through your head aren't always going to be the most sensible.

There is no evidence. And George Zimmerman didn't testify.

There had to be testimonies from witnesses, officers and investigators.

There was plenty. At work so can't go into detail, but google will find a lot of this for you.

Run down was that a good amount of state witnesses seemed like they were on there for the defense. John Good, for example, stated he clearly saw Trayvon on top. Jaentel's testimony was dissected, exposed and twisted by O'Mara/West to fit their line of defense. Serino (original Detective on the scene) also leaned towards self defense. State's ME and the defense medical expert also collided, and it seemed like the defense's expert testimony lingered longer in the jurors heads. State also botched the case by arguing who was on top to, late in the trial, admitting that Martin was with the firearm discharging.

Also both sides had people testifying the voice screaming for help was either one.

While that may be true, and if you do fear out of paranoia, and do lose sight of said people, would you not do everything you can to risk a confrontation? Or make sure authorities do arrive?

Not inputting blame, just wondering what you would do.

Well Trayvon's upbringing was different than mine, so his worldview is going to be different. Honestly, I can't say how I would react in a situation until I find myself in that situation with thoughts racing and heart pounding. I'm not sure what Trayvon was going through mentally, but blacks from the inner city typically don't trust cops and look for them to rescue them out of a bind. They're used to slow responses and not much help if they even do arrive.

So, Trayvon was probably in a protective mode and also hesitant to go home and reveal to this "creep" where he and his family were staying.
