6. One may not logically purport to be Progressive

 

And not admit the huge raging problem of racism in our nation. I will forever believe and support the concept of "innocence until proven guilty".

*However* That doesn't mean I'm blind to the fact that Zimmerman got out of his vehicle armed. And interacted with Martin in some way that led to a shooting death.

If you want to argue to me that Zimmerman had a right to get out of his vehicle and put himself there and then, then there is no context that you and I can relate to, in order to achieve a rational and civilized conclusion.

But that doesn't mean our justice system might not find him innocent.
