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.

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.
