I agree. I followed the case closely. The prosecutions case was pathetically weak. The defense "flipped" many of the witnesses to make statements supportive of Zimmerman's story.

This incident was willfully misrepresented by the media, the Florida Republicans brought the case for political purposes and the politicians in DC made it racially divisive by their behavior and comments (Obama, Bobby Rush, Federica Wilson, etc.).
This event was a tragedy for the Martin family and the Zimmerman family. The race-baiters got their arrest, trial and verdict. Time for them to accept it and move on.
