Well, she didn't exactly say he did nothing wrong. As for your article, this is them extending the rules from not recommending guns to prohibiting them as well as prohibiting following a suspect so that they don't get sued in future like the HO did...they learned from other's mistakes. Good on them.

Trial turns to Zimmerman's neighborhood-watch role

Quote:
In testimony Tuesday, Wendy Dorival, who worked as the volunteer program coordinator for the Sanford Police Department, said she made a presentation to facilitate a neighborhood watch program in 2011 for residents of Retreat at Twin Lakes, where Zimmeran lived and Trayvon was visiting a friend of his father's on the night he was killed.

Assistant State Attorney John Guy showed the jury a slide show that Dorival used at neighborhood meetings. The presentation warned citizens against being vigiliantes and urged them to work with police — be the eyes and ears of the community and report suspicious activity. "They're not supposed to take matters into their own hands," Dorival said.

You've switched it around from 'rules against guns' to 'not recommending guns.'

They made sensible changes to the policy, or lack of policy, in effect when GZ was in NW.at

This is how the insurance industry works. It's part of the finance industry and their people get paid by how little they pay off. Believe as you wish, but there is no reason for them to offer to settle for their full liability amount.



If this is the source, there isn't anything in either link, that offers up any proof. It's all rumor.
Yeah, and once again your deceptive editing changed the message, this time by eliminating phrases containing words such as "bet" and "estimated". Why do you do this? What's your point? And if your point is so weak you need to change the meaning of posts, maybe your point is not worth attempting to make at all.

Editing out what you feel is irrelevant, changes the context of the post...

This was why they were sued but not the National Neighborhood Watch group. In this case, those lawyers you call money grabbers may have saved another innocent person from being killed by another wannabe in that neighborhood because I'm quite certain that homeowners association will not do that again and hopefully other associations will learn from their experience too.

“Their duty is to be the eyes and ears. Report crime as they see it,” said
Dorival, adding that she provided handouts stressing this and also explained it
verbally during the meeting. Zimmerman was there as the neighborhood watch
coordinator, a role he told Dorival had been assigned him by the president of
the homeowners' association.


Guy asked Dorival what the handouts and her instructions tell volunteers to
do if they begin following a suspicious person.


“We tell them they don’t do that. That’s the job of law enforcement,” she
replied.


The same instructions apply to confronting a suspicious person, Dorival said.
She said her presentation would advise people, “Not to confront, to let … the
police department do the job.


“They’re not supposed to take matters into their own hands. … Let law
enforcement take the risk of approaching a suspect,” Dorival said.

Seems he did violate the rules of procedure but those Jurors didn't care one bit..
