Questions about Martin, Zimmerman clash

July 21, 2013 

There is just so much emotion in regards to the Zimmerman verdict, I'm sure some will object to the questions I'm about to ask. Again, these are questions I need help with:

Was Trayvon Martin in the act of committing a felony when he was shot (assault and battery)? If the police would have arrived before he was shot, would he have been arrested?

Now, the last question may be the toughest: Does George Zimmerman have legal recourse against Trayvon's parents (Trayvon was a minor) in a civil suit (Zimmerman suffered injuries during the altercation)?

I welcome help in better understanding the whole incident.
