Zimmerman SHOULD Have Walked
The thing is, Zimmerman's attorneys did a better job than did the prosecution in swaying the jury of his peers.
Jury selection had as much to do with the outcome of this trial as did the evidence presented.
It was an idea that this country was founded upon.
Blackstone's formulation is an idea that is taught to most during elementary school yet more and more minorities (Okay... there was OJ.) are unable to benefit from it.
The real problem is that the prosecution failed to do their job.
Precious should have never been able to take the stand without the proper preparation.
If the roles were reversed and an all-Black jury heard a white witness spewing ill tempered and poorly worded comments about 'Niggers', the all-Black jury would have already made up their minds at that point in the trial.
The problem is not the law - it is the unfair and uneven application of it that causes much of the racial and/or cultural problems in this country
