You're welcome. Glad you didn't need to call anyone else.

If it were me, I would call his cell (if he has one) and then call the police to ask them if there have been any wrecks along the route he would take, and whether they would be able to follow his route and make sure he hasn't had any car trouble. If you leave, BF may get to your place, not find you, and then leave to try to find you. If you stay, and BF arrives, you can call the police back and let them know he arrived safe.

People tend to think the police dept. won't do things like that, but they will. At least in my town, which is relatively small (40,000). That's what I would do. Hope he's ok.

So I called his mom, after very nearly full-scale panic attack-ing. Turns out he fell asleep because we've both been up all night. Yeah. So...there was no need to worry, he's just a dork. Thank you, stranger, for helping me calm down. I appreciate it very much.

Okay. I know this is random, and I completely don't know you. 2 hours ago, my bf who lives 2 miles away said he and his mom would come pick me up shortly. he still isn't here and he wont reply to skype. Should I be worried/head over there to see if there's been a terrible crash and he died or something on the way?? Only asking random internet stranger because I'm about to have a panic attack about it...

My beef is with the Stand Your Ground law. Not the specifics of this case.

But let's look at those, shall we?
Zimmerman could have simply kept an eye on Trayvon from a safe distance and waited for the cops to cop. He chose not to. That's a fact. What happened after he chose to pursue Martin is up in the air. There is no conclusive evidence one way or the other as to who started the fight or whether Zimmerman was justified in his actions.
The reason Zimmerman was not convicted was that the prosecution could not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he was guilty. There were conflicting reports of the incident, eyewitnesses who "saw" Zimmerman on top of Martin, eyewitnesses who "saw" Martin on top of Zimmerman. That casts doubt.
Zimmerman's family swears it was him screaming on the tape. Obviously. Martin's family swears it was him screaming on the tape. Obviously. That casts doubt.
The prosecution's key witness was somewhat less than credible, unfortunately, so whether she actually heard Martin say "Get off" or get hit...we'll never know.
So, yes, Zimmerman was (rightfully) found not guilty because there was definitely doubt on the facts of the case.

However, this situation would likely never have happened if Florida didn't have the stupid "Stand Your Ground" law in the first place.

both of them did things they shouldn't have. He wasn't supposed to follow. Trayvon shouldn't'a broken the dude's freaking nose. but yeah, the law leaves some room for people to get out of trouble..
