of course the trial SHOULD bring out the real truth, but i have little faith in the justus sytem...for good reason. and of course, some of my fellow americans, democrats, and liberals do not understand my mistrust, or that it is shared by many african-americans. zimmerman should be tried, and convicted, imho, based on his phony excuse for murdering: i was scared if he was so afraid, then why didn't he stay in the car, as he was instructed to do? he totally lacks credibility, imho. yeah, one can purport to be progressive and still be in denial about racism...a privilege that i certainly do not have.
