Letter: Trayvon died while committing assault

\My comment is about the justice for Trayvon movement that is sweeping our nation, even a march recently in Anchorage. This young man’s death was tragic and could have been avoided. Zimmerman’s neighborhood watch efforts were overzealous but that is not a crime. Everyone who screams justice for Trayvon seams to conveniently overlook the fact that this young man died while committing a felony assault. An assault that was perfectly capable of taking Zimmerman’s life. We all heard the story of the man who was recently killed in Mountain View from a single blow to the face. Everyone wants to rally behind Trayvon while leaving out the obvious truth.
