The evidence appears to be in Mr. Zimmerman's favor. Subtract the political angles and emotional conjecture from this case and it appears to be a clear case of self-defense, albeit a tragic one.Wow...Tough room full of name calling and bickering from all sides. Since the witnesses seem to be backing what Zimmerman said and you have to admit it took 5 minutes for every civil rights "opportunist" to come down here to Florida, whip up both sides and post pictures of Trayvon when he was 2 for sympathy...I'm not buying either side right now. Maybe we might want to actually see the facts before we start calling people racist or condemning either side? I worry when I see things like this because it just proves all the race baiting of the past several years is working and I thought this group was beyond all of that...sigh
Despite media assertions to the contrary, the Florida Legislature clearly enacted Fla.Stat.§§ 776.012, 776.013, 776.032 and § 776.041 for very good reasons. This case appears to fall squarely into those statutory protections. I'm handling a similar case right now, and the Legislators' intent was to avoid such drawn-out torture for people who righteously defend themselves.
