I said that I would come back after the verdict, so here I am. I was wrong about the trial. I thought that he deserved to be convicted of manslaughter and was surprised that he wasn't. Even though he was acquitted, I still don't think that Zimmerman was innocent and I feel that he deserves to be punished. I think that people like him are a danger to society and I hope that he doesn't harm anyone else. Race is obviously an issue. I think the NAACP and Jackson/Sharpton aren't helping the cause by their words and actions. I don't know if Trayvon was a good kid or not. He probably had some responsibility for his death, but it was senseless and I don't believe he deserved to die. I wanted to share an article I read about the Florida Stand Your Ground law and how I believe that it needs to be reformed. A lot of you in here feel that it is a great law. I am all for people being able to defend themselves, but it seems that many take advantage of the law. http://www.tampabay.com/news/public...s-some-shocking-outcomes-depending-on/1233133 "As "stand your ground" claims have increased, so too has the number of Floridians with guns. Concealed weapons permits now stand at 1.1 million, three times as many as in 2005 when the law was passed." Aside from feeling that the laws need to be changed, I also feel as though the legal system needs to be changed. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-201_162-57433184/fla-mom-gets-20-years-for-firing-warning-shots/ So basically, this woman shot a warning shot (no one injured) because she was trying to defend (allegedly) against her abusive husband and she gets 20 years in prison. But Zimmerman kills a person to defend (allegedly) his life and he walks free. Sounds like the system works right?
