George Zimmerman was found "not guilty", yesterday. Even the judge's transparent attempt to put him behind bars by instructing the jury that he could be found guilty of the lesser charge of Manslaughter failed.
A jury of 6 women found him not guilty.
The standard of proof in this country is "beyond a reasonable doubt". Even from my distance, as uninformed as I was, it was obvious that "reasonable doubt' existed, would exist, and Zimmerman would be cleared.
This is a case that went to trial because of the publicity. The Media drove this - made it happen - made it a sensation.
It had no other reason to be so. But the Media.
It's time to move on to something else, now. I wonder what the next red flag will be that the Media will wave in our faces to attract our attention, so we don't look too close, so we don't turn over the wrong rock and find something meaningful to attract our attention.
Nah. I'm sure they'll find something else.
