WHO WAS DEFENDING HIMSELF?

Idea

As final arguments finish in Trayvon Martin's slay trial, the Florida jury set to begin deciding Zimmerman's fate.

George Zimmerman's defense attorneys tried to convince a jury the neighborhood watch volunteer shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in self-defense.

But Zimmerman's case apparently raises some disturbing issues. The right to self defense- does it only apply to Zimmerman? Did Trayvon Martin have the right to defend himself against a stranger chasing him?

29 year old Zimmerman has been charged with second-degree murder, but the jury will also be allowed to consider manslaughter. Under Florida's laws involving gun crimes, manslaughter could end up carrying a penalty as heavy as the one for second-degree murder: life in prison.
