From The New York Times, Saturday, July 13, 10:52pm:
A teenager “minding his own business” who was gunned down as he walked home with a pocketful of Skittles and an Arizona fruit drink.
“That child had every right to do what he was doing, walking home,” said John Guy, a prosecutor in the case. “That child had every right to be afraid of a strange man following him, first in his car and then on foot. And did that child not have the right to defend himself from that strange man?”
Apparently, not in America.
“Let him go back,” Mr. O’Mara said to the jury, referring to Mr. Zimmerman, “and get back to his life.”
On Saturday, the jury did just that.
Yes. The jury confirmed that Florida laws protect profilers who choose to pursue and kill. And there is no justice for the voiceless, dead victims.
Be careful with your Skittles out there.
