Excellent piece by Andrew Cohen over at The Atlantic of putting the Zimmerman case into perspective:
What the verdict says, to the astonishment of tens of millions of us, is that you can go looking for trouble in Florida, with a gun and a great deal of racial bias, and you can find that trouble, and you can act upon that trouble in a way that leaves a young man dead, and none of it guarantees that you will be convicted of a crime. But this curious result says as much about Florida's judicial and legislative sensibilities as it does about Zimmerman's conduct that night. This verdict would not have occurred in every state.... Don't like it? Lobby to change Florida's laws.
The crime here is 'Concealed Carry' and 'Stand Your Ground'. With laws like those, none of us are safe -- we are all Travyon Martin.
