Zimmerman

I could say a lot about it, but I'll leave it at this: in order to convict George Zimmerman, the State had to prove its case. It didn't come close. As the old saying goes, if the facts are on your side, argue the facts. If the law is on your side, argue the law. If neither the facts nor the law are on your side, bang the table. If you watched any of the case, you saw that the prosecution spent nearly all of its time banging the table, while the defense argued both the facts and the law.

'Trayvon' got justice (a fair hearing), and so did George.

the question remains as to whether George will be allowed to go about his life in peace. my guess is that he wont.

Well said. In a just world, the prosecutors would be facing discipline for this one, and possibly for a couple of others I've heard of.

Unfortunately, most of the media coverage was of the table-banging and not the testimony.

I followed the trial via the "legal
Insurrection blog which had video of each day's testimony plus legal commentary. Even the prosecution witnesses sounded as if they were defense witnesses.
