    Here's the NC law on stalking. Take out the "more than one occasion" and you've got Zimmerman stalking Trayvon.

    Stalking is willfully following, being in the presence of, or otherwise harassing another person without purpose on more than one occasion and with the intent to do one of the following:

    1) Place them in fear of their safety or safety of their family or associates,

    2) Cause them to suffer emotional distress by putting them in fear of death, injury, or continued harassment that puts them in distress.
