Zimmerman jury got it wrong

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor

Some people think the Zimmerman jury basically got it right. But I find that idea to be ridiculous.

Stripped down after all the analysis and psycho-babble, the case boils down to a “neighborhood watch” man who saw someone “suspicious,” called police officials for guidance and was told not to follow the boy. Yet this man continued to stalk (yes, I said it — stalk) the boy. In fact he so closely stalked the boy, that there was a confrontation.

Who provoked whom?

George Zimmerman was trained, certified and experienced as a neighborhood watch person. He was the adult, he was armed, and he willfully ignored police guidance. He stalked an unarmed pedestrian.

Ignoring racial factors, clothes worn, and all the other peripheral facts, objectively why should Zimmerman be held harmless?
