"Now when I go to the bathroom I find out who my friends are." - Jake Scott after both broken hands were in casts following the 1972 season
As far as the outcome of the trial whoever turned it into a physical confrontation was wrong. I don't know who that was. The guilt for what happens after the verdict belongs to the media for making it something it wasn't. I wish people would make their judgments on these things before they hear the color of the skin of the people involved.

The State should have been more prepared to argue the manslaughter charge at closing. Argue that Zimmerman intended to follow and confront Trayvon, which the police would have to testify is the last thing you want a neighborhood watch person to do, so that Zimmerman acted recklessly in following Trayvon. The State could then focus on the act being neither justified nor excusable. The State had a shot and blew it.
Everyone needs to zimmer down here.
I'm thankful that I live in a country where we have to prove beyond reasonable doubt that one is guilty rather than just convicting people with our emotions.
