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.
What we can learn from Mr Zimmermans verdict, is that when all these people that are so against racism don't get their way, then they become the biggest racists America has ever seen.
If a black man had been found innocent, Al Sharpton and all the other racists would have been praising the justice system. But because they didn't get their little baby way, now they are all having a temper tantrum.
And our so called useless president is leading the way.
One could also conclude that you need to becareful who you get into a fight with on the street because they may be armed.
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.
