I am not Trayvon Martin


I haven't written a post about the aftermath of Zimmerman's acquittal in his murder of Trayvon Martin. Readers know I have written somewhat extensively about the case. I did get caught up in the evidence, the facts, thinking that surely reasonable people would be able to clearly see what happened if they just paid attention, if they simply used their heads. It may sound naive, but I truly believed. I felt real hope that justice would prevail.

Well, I was wrong. Breaking news: people are stupid. So here I am, finally, to write my own reaction to the verdict.
