I’ve already commented on this case so much I decided to let someone else write about the verdict that came in last night.
From the Kasama Project;

The story is not complicated, and most of the court details were raw diversion.
This racist asshole wanted to confront a black teenager walking through the neighborhood. He went with a loaded gun, without a safety, with a bullet in the chamber. He drove around stalking Trayvon and then got out of the car.
It doesn't matter what happened in the fight. Trayvon had every right to smack that asshole to protect himself. And Zimmerman had no right to shoot this young man through the heart after stalking and terrifying him.
Almost all the babble and micro-details in this trial are irrelevant.
If I pick a fight with someone, and they whup me, I don't get a right to shoot them.
