3. There are many countries where if the President stated that if he had a son,

the victim would have resembled him, a verdict of guilty and a severe sentence would have followed automatically.

But I am not sure that this is necessarily a good thing.

4. Oh no that wouldn't be a good thing...

this case was a mess from the beginning. From the night of the shooting forward.

Why was the boy that was laying dead drug/alcohol tested and the shooter not? How the hell can you shoot someone and not have a drug/alcohol test. That is absurd to me.

Zimmerman was barely questioned before he was allowed to go home to his comfy bed. How many nights did he spend in jail?

It's utterly ridiculous. The investigation and the prosecution.

Unbelievably sad....

12. Rules need to be changed. Putting the victim on trial results in too many bad verdicts. nt
