If the person you walk past chooses to follow you, they have made a conscious choice to do so--and their action is aggressive in intent (they do not intend to "leave you alone"). They might not be *actively* aggressive in the sense they are physically attacking you. But they are aggressive because they are knowing choosing to watch and follow you--and perhaps planning more than that.

Hence, Trayvon was exercising his "stand your ground" rights against Zimmerman because Zimmerman was a perceived ACTIVE threat to him.

Sorry, no law in any state allows you to physically attack someone for following you. That is an illegal assault anywhere. In every state you are allowed to defend yourself against an illegal assault. Case dismissed.
