To me, the wrong here is simple.

Right now, in Florida, as confirmed by the results of this trial, I can follow anybody I want, hassle them, and then when they get mad and jump me, I can kill them. And it is okay.

If you are one of those that think this is okay, please explain. I just don't get it. Had Zimmerman not followed and/or confronted Trayvon, nothing would have happened. Trayvon had not committed any crimes, he was merely walking home after going to the store.

Why is his death okay because Zimmerman shot in self defense? Zimmerman should have been at home looking at porn and eating cheetos. And Trayvon should have been eating Skittles shortly when instead he was being carted off to the morgue.

The legality of the killing is bad enough. Saying that since the jury found Zimmerman innocent, no wrong was done, and no changes need to be made, confounds me

I've often wondered what it would be like to be a member of a racial minority group. I take it that when I'm dead I'll know.
