The Zimmerman Verdict: A Travesty of Justice
We may not like the outcome of the Zimmerman trial, we’re told by various and sundry officious types, but this we must accept: The system worked; it was a fair trial; it wasn’t about pleasing anybody; and what’s done is done, so call off the demonstrations and move on.
The verdict was no surprise. It merely was a postscript to a series of highly irregular – and, in the view of Leid Strories, unlawful –police, prosecutorial and even judicial actions that began the very night Trayvon Martin was killed and continued right up until the outrageous verdict.
Leid Stories consistently has pointed out these irregularities. Today, we return to the scene of this criminal injustice.
