47. your take on the case, included something untrue

"Zimmerman ignored what he was told, got out of his car"

Zimmerman was ALREADY OUT of his car, when he was told "we don't need you (to follow Trayvon)"


So you apparently heard somebody else saying that wrong.

You are free to have your own take on the case, just like everybody else, but nobody is free to have their own facts.

The narrative of

1. Zimmerman was told not to follow him
2. Zimmerman got out of his car anyway

is simply NOT TRUE.

And many people seem to believe that false narrative.

Now I know that people are stubborn and they hate being wrong, or admitting that they are wrong. Heck, I could have one of those joke posters on my own wall "My mind is made up, don't confuse me with the facts". But it is possible that your take could change as you get more facts or get errors corrected.
