George Zimmerman found not guilty.

Wow. George Zimmerman is not guilty. Really?

George Zimmerman found not guilty

Zimmerman, in a car, follows unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, gets out of his car, against instruction and advice, with his gun, confronts the unarmed youth, Trayvon Martin ends up shot dead by George Zimmerman.

George Zimmerman is not guilty. Of anything?

I must admit, I was not expecting this outcome. I was expecting some finding of wrongdoing on the part of Zimmerman. Not first-degree murder, but something.

Here’s a little thought experiment…

Take a look a the picture above.  Now, imagine that Zimmerman was the person on the right, and Trayvon Martin was the person in the middle.  Or the person on the left.  Do you think the verdict would have been the same?

Luckily for Mr. Zimmerman, I guess, racism appears to be alive and well in Florida.
