"I'm tickled pink to see George Zimmerman charged. He instigated this entire situation. "

How? By attempting to protect his neighborhood from criminals? I wasn't aware that it is a crime to follow someone that you have reason to believe might not belong there and might be committing a crime. Being wrong in that suspicion is also not a crime. It happens all the time. No charges could be filled for either action on the part of Zimmerman. He did the right thing. He called 911 and tried, but apparently failed to keep Trayvon under surveillance until the cops arrived.

However, if Trayvon had just simply continued on his way, none of this would have happened. Why is it somehow worse for Zimmerman to try to protect his neighborhood, than for Trayvon to confront and attack someone for just following him? Why did that anger Trayvon so much that he felt justified in coldcocking Zimmerman, knocking him to the ground, and then slamming his head into the sidewalk?

"But the trial will use our justice system to come to the fairest conclusion our society can come to...."

Yeah, just like the O.J. trial....A trail of the victim's blood leading from the crime scene to his bedroom, and he walked out of the courtroom free as a bird with a smirk on his face. You call that justice?

Jury nullification can work both ways.

What worries me is the chilling effect this case will have on every neighborhood watch program, every security guard, and every person in the country confronted with a similar situation. This is how it happens that 100 people can witness a vicious, heinous crime and standby and not even call the cops, let alone attempt to intervene.

What kind of society are we creating when people are afraid to protect themselves and the property?
