No, they didn't "scream" beaten to death but they don't have to. You don't get on top of people and start beating on them, period. That is enough for them to draw a weapon and kill you and be within their rights to do so. Violence begets violence and the only way to avoid it is not to initiate it. And even words can initiate it if you're dealing with the wrong person. You have to try to avoid confrontation or you open the door. Zimmerman opened a door getting out of the car and got his ass kicked. Martin opened up a much bigger door by attacking Zimmerman and got killed, all in a matter of minutes and out of this, one man is justifiably free yet changed for life and the other is dead. There is no happy ending for anyone.
