Still fairer than what that kid got.
Only if you buy the line that the shooting was completely based on race, and that the kid was minding his own business when he was shot, instead of actively trying to murder Zimmerman. Both positions have been fairly well discredited to this point.
It's like a shooting out here by the cops, in which they shot an unarmed black kid who they say was reaching for his waistband at the time. There's a huge stink locally about this saintly kid who got shot. The background was that the saintly kid had robbed a Mexican guy's car of a number of valuables, and the Mexican guy had called the cops on him, lying by saying he was armed, claiming he figured it would get a faster response time, (which apparently it did). So the cops were chasing a guy they thought was armed, who made a suspicious movement. And he got shot for it.
To here the kid's family and friends and the black community, the kid was out delivering meals to the elderly in between visiting sick kids at the local hospital, rather than robbing cars. The media too. But he wouldn't have been shot if he hadn't been committing a crime in the first place. The Mexican guy BTW wasn't charged. And the cops are coming under a ton of criticism by the black community.
In Martin's case, if he hadn't jumped Zimmerman and pounded his head into the ground repeatedly, he would still be here, according the the available physical and other evidence at this point.
