Response to nadinbrzezinski (Original post)

22. Sigh. Hate to repeat myself, but...

"Innocent until proven guilty" is the standard of our judicial system. The courts will (hopefully) do their best to give Zimmerman a fair trial.

This, however, is the court of public opinion, where such a standard, no matter how we might pine away for it, is not required, nor is it usually present.

Without a single scrap of evidence which clears him, and a whole bunch of evidence which implicates him, in the court of public opinion there is, at this point, little traction in suggesting Zimmerman's rights are being abused.

Let the judicial system do its job - and let the public vent it's pain over this, as it must...
