Still a Travesty of Justice

The indictment of George Zimmerman for second degree murder.

Here are the real facts, so far as I can tell:  In the time preceding the Trayvon Martin shooting, Zimmerman, who was not a neighborhood watch member as often described, but an out of control maniac with a gun, made several dozen 911 calls, many of them alleging that a suspicious black man was lurking around the neighborhood.  It is clear that Zimmerman was looking for a black person that he could murder with impunity, counting on the willing incompetence of the racist Stanford, FL police department.

Well, that is sort of a textbook case of malice aforethought, and what's more, Zimmerman is nothing but a thrill killer.  In any kind of just world, given the State of Florida's record, Zimmerman would be convicted of first degree murder with clear special circumstances of stalking, and would be executed as quickly as possible.  That would be justice, Florida style.

Fat chance.

Actually, I was. I took a couple of days off from my work on Magic City, and went to Stanford, FL just to enjoy a few hours in Real America, and boy was I not disappointed.

I hope you don't believe in Jesus, Anonymous, because you weren't there when he was alive.
