I too, am conservative, and encountered an excellent analysis at the liberal Slate: http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/frame_game/2013/07/trayvon_martin_verdict_racism_hate_crimes_prosecution_and_other_overreactions.html Hard to argue with his characterization of Zimmerman as a reckless fool.

One could also conclude that you need to becareful who you get into a fight with on the street because they may be armed.

Trayvon could have just talked instead of throwing punches. There's a Golden Rule of fighting the was violated by Trayvon that night. He was feeling a little froggy and thought he could take George And he was right as far as hand to hand fighting went. Trayvon was cleaning George's clock. However...the golden rule of fighting.....passed down through the decades is this. Don't start a fight, there is alway someone tougher than you. This is a tragedy all around. Especially with Trayvon. He got in over his head real fast. Chicago is full of these stories. Now the Feds want to get rid of "Stand Your Ground" laws. For what, criminal right of way laws? Ninety one percent of black murders are committed by other black people. George Zimmerman, white people, and the n word arent what's hurting the black community. Its the black community that's hurting and killing itself. It's the no fathers and husbands that's destroyed the black community. The children, daughters and mothers are shedding rivers of tears because their men won't make a stand. Any help, anyone can ever give by reaching out and sharing family and religious values with them is desperately needed. Don't let the walls the race baiters and Satan have built stop you. Reach out.

They BOTH got in over their heads, and needlessly so. Neither one of them was doing anything wrong.

Zimmerman should never have left his vehicle. The police arrived about 60 seconds after he fired the shot. Had he let the cops handle it, the kid would be alive & GZ wouldn't have a target on his back. But he decided to be a hero, and both he & Martin instinctively assumed the worst about each other. One is dead, and the other will probably need to wear a bullet proof vest for the next decade.

The jury ruled correctly. And Zimmerman is an idiot, regardless.
