george zimmerman not guilty

We can move past this. It starts with feeling. Feeling what it's like to be Trayvon Martin, who is walking around with a target on his back and acting accordingly by lashing out. Feeling what it's like to be George Zimmerman who felt that he was doing his part by protecting his neighbourhood. We've got to get into the ugly shit and hear each other out.
The prosecution's critical mistake was over-charging Zimmerman with murder. It required proof that Zimmerman had acted with ''ill will or hatred'' and set out to harm Trayvon Martin when he left his car prior to the shooting.
