Zimmerman is a mountain of a man and the kid not exactly a beast..
I struggle to think how Zimmerman's life was in danger...
He could easily have fought him off if he wanted to...
You never had a punch-up and feel to the ground and get a few scratches..
If the kid was armed , it would have a kettle of fish..
The fact he has been charged proved the establishment is very worried by that particular case.
