Had GZ winged Trayvon instead of killing him, Trayvon would be now up for Aggravated Assault.

It doesn't sit well with me that a 17 year old lost his life this way. My first knee-jerk reaction was to put 100% blame on the defendant. It was a tragedy.

Then I looked at the facts presented and it went down to 50%. Then I looked at how the LAW pertains to it and it dropped to zero.

... and yet like most people you want some sort of justice. What would justice look like then? What would it be?

This case is so fascinating and tragic. Full of Racial bias all around, the gun debate, C&C concerns, Stand your ground laws etc, self defense debates. A troubled teen, An over eager neighborhood watch. Holy-crapola batman!!!!
