We’ll never know the truth of what transpired between Zimmerman and Martin on the night of the fatal shooting but here are the facts as I see them.
Zimmerman ignored instructions from trained emergency personnel not to confront Martin.
Zimmerman was armed.
Trayvon was not.
Trayvon is dead.
Zimmerman is not.
A justice system that gives individuals the right to provoke a confrontation and then claim self-defence is irredeemably flawed.
