1. Do you know how rarely aircraft fly with live air to ground ordinance in US air space? Live fire practice is actually pretty rare and the bad PR of an F-16 fully loaded with bombs crashing into a shopping mall is very hight.

Actually, they do it all the time in the restricted airspace ranges.
The live-fire range at Ft. Drum is/was used by F-16s, A-10s, B-52s, Reapers, etc etc.

When the F16s flew out of Syracuse they would fly to Ft. Drum and load live armaments there.

No one ordered zimmerman to do anything.

No one had the authority to do order him to do anything.

Zimmerman had the right to walk wherever the fuck he wanted to, and martin decided to kill him for that.
Well, he fucked with someone who had the means to fight back. Suicide by stupidity in my book.
