  •  zimmerman wasn't the fault of the law (0+ / 0-)

    but the individual members (or at least some of them) on the panel, and IMO a rather poor prosecution team (at least on that case).

    Dunn again I think goes on the jury.  The law was sufficient, and in that case I think the prosecution sufficient but the jury process, while democratic, is not always accurate and sometimes in individual cases not even sufficient.

    Maybe yelling wasn't an option, maybe killing was the only recourse, time and the facts will tell, but free reign to kill abusers isn't the answer either, as emotionally satisfying or even quasi-kharmic as it may seem.
