It's time they wised up along with everyone else who has lost their ever lovin' minds over this one case. A lot of people are going to get real tired of the biased hypocrisy real soon.
It's only making this tragedy much, much worse.

The juror also indicated that they might have been more receptive to some lesser charge if the prosecution had not so grossly overcharged and not argued a case that conflicted with the facts.
That is the whole point and all there is to say.

If these people want to be mad at somebody, they should be mad at the prosecution who pretty much won the case for the defense. A charge of manslaughter may have had a different outcome and the other side would have been angry believing it was self defense, but not to the point of rioting and becoming violent against innocent people.

It's why we have a justice system and a jury gets to decide. No one else gets to try a case and public lynchings were outlawed.

Seems we're on the verge of becoming the Wild West again. Maybe those crazy mobs in westerns were the first liberals.

IF IT BOGGLES your mind that George Zimmerman, a 29-year-old with a gun, could be acquitted after pursuing — and killing — an unarmed 17-year-old, here’s another brain teaser: How could Marissa Alexander, a 31-year-old mother of three, receive a 20-year prison sentence for firing a bullet into a wall near her abusive ex-husband, even though no one was harmed?

It’s true. Florida is one of the worst places to fire a gun into the air, even as it appears to be one of the best places to actually shoot at a person.

Zimmerman verdict highlights problems in Florida law

THERE’S NO doubt where moral responsibility for Trayvon Martin’s death lies: with George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who shot the unarmed teenager to death in Sanford, Fla., last year. Zimmerman had no good reason to be following Martin in his vehicle, and disobeyed a 911 dispatcher’s instructions by getting out to pursue him. Yet a jury’s decision Saturday to acquit Zimmerman on a murder charge — and even on a lesser manslaughter charge — was a sadly predictable outcome of how the laws governing the case were designed. Florida should amend its statutes accordingly.

Guilt beyond a reasonable doubt is an appropriately high standard for a criminal conviction; when prosecutors put forth muddled evidence and seemingly unprepared witnesses, as occurred in the Zimmerman case, the system properly inclines toward finding a defendant not guilty. What’s dismaying, however, is how easy it was for a Florida court to accept the claim that Zimmerman killed Martin in self-defense. The overarching mindset is exemplified by the state’s much-criticized “stand your ground” law that undergirded police investigators’ initial decision not to charge Zimmerman; promoted by the gun lobby, the measure relieves people of the obligation to flee from danger before using deadly force. In the end, the Zimmerman verdict reflected a broader willingness to accept the defendant’s subjective judgment that he was in physical danger — and never mind how that danger came about — as sufficient reason to shoot.

In this frontier mentality, besieged individuals have the right to use force against their enemies because there’s no one else to do so. But a gated community in Florida isn’t the Wild West, and this legal framework promotes a kind of vigilantism that is especially dangerous in a diverse society. Zimmerman’s suspicions of Martin, who was black, seemed to be based at least partly on the teenager’s race. Zimmerman’s acquittal reflects a presumption that, in Florida, one can pick a fight with a stranger for entirely dubious reasons, and if that stranger seems to be gaining the upper hand — as Martin did, in Zimmerman’s account — it’s acceptable to pull out a gun and shoot.

In other areas of the law, a person who creates a situation bears at least some responsibility for injuries that result from it; it’s possible that Zimmerman will still face a civil wrongful-death suit. Yet criminal law must now address the danger — heightened in a “stand your ground” era — that one person will draw another into a physical confrontation and then use a feeling of danger as pretext to shoot.

Napolitano Leaving DHS Under Cloud of Suspicion

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano suddenly announced last week that she was resigning her position at the embattled agency in order to take a $750,000-a-year job as president of the University of California system. This will more than triple her salary, which was $200,000 at DHS.

Many believe she abruptly left DHS because of some sordid dealings that are about to be discovered. Her tenure at DHS has been characterized by back-to-back lawsuits and multiple controversies regarding the agencies DHS oversees, which include the TSA, ICE, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services and FEMA.

Napolitano was known in Arizona for her backroom deals and ruthless targeting of conservatives, a pattern she continued as DHS chief...
