Response to MrScorpio (Original post)

1. The graphic is flawed and the comparison questionable

Zimmerman is out on bail not probation. It is not a trivial distinction.

The other case was indeed troubling. A judge (not jury) denied SYG protection and a jury did not accept self defense. That said, from what is in the media, the conviction does not make sense. I have to wonder what other facts there were that justified the conviction in their minds and what was the racial makeup of the jury
