On SA Angela Corey's Watch
What is important about this case goes way beyond the lives of Martin and Zimmerman. It explores the process of communities trying to protect themselves against criminal acts by individuals and/or gangs in growing numbers. Police can't be everywhere; so they can't be expected to protect communities from home invasions, burgularies, muggings, vandalism, physical assaults or drive by shootings. Thus communities must devise ways to protect themselves until police can come to the rescue.
The question becomes: what can communities do to protect themselves; and what exactly can they not do? In this case, what will be tested is if Zimmerman went too far. What will also be tested is the concept of what exactly makes a person someone of interest to a nightwatch security team. One thing I think all will agree with is that no nightwatch persons should be out alone. A cell phone to 911 is not a team member.
