Look, I just have to say this.
This damn George Zimmerman trial is driving me insane.
I covered quite a few trials back in my newspaper days, and I don’t think there’s any way on earth Zimmerman can be found guilty of Murder 2, especially given the shoddy police work following Trayvon Martin’s death.
Regardless, I want Zimmerman’s punk ass convicted anyway, because he’s a lying, pathetic, slimy, steaming sack of shit. He’s damn well responsible for unnecessarily instigating a situation that led to a teenager getting killed for nothing more than minding his own business. (And yes, I know Martin was no perfect shining angel. That doesn’t matter in the slightest. He didn’t do a damn thing to initiate this situation.)
And it’s all just an incredibly depressing reminder of a society that lets weird little wannabe action heroes run around with handguns, despite (in this case) Zimmerman’s history providing plenty of reasons he wasn’t emotionally qualified for concealed carry. It escalates any conflict into a potentially deadly situation.
Okay, I feel better.
Well, not much better.
