George Zimmerman in court, June 24, 2013

he got off  SCOTT free.

After killing a child
She fired warning shots into a ceiling and got twenty years....

This is not a long diary.  This is about how very bad this verdict was and how it WAS all about race.  Every single bit.  I don't care what the prosecution said.. It was.

If this is diaired then I apologize but how many times has the question been asked how would this have turned out if Trayvon Martin was white and Zimmerman was black?  I think we know the answer by the very same prosecutor Angela Corey who brought this case against a black woman named Marissa Alexander who  killed a ceiling under SYG....No bodily harm.. Just killed a ceiling.  20 years.   Enough said.   Jim Crow is alive and camped all over the south and other places where White is right and Black is to be feared.

God help us all.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
