Trayvon Martin verdict is not surprising or wrong.

Upset at THE verdict? 

Another young black man dead and a verdict that is not surprising at all.

Witness testimony is unreliable and problematic at its best. 

When the police waits weeks to interview witnesses there is hardly any case left. Especially since it all happened in the dark.

If you couple that to a 911 recording where both families swear the voice calling for help is their man, then you’re left with not near enough for a conviction.

Even if the police investigation had not been shamefully slow, the witness accounts could still have led to reasonable doubts as to whether Zimmerman killed without lawful justification. But now we will never know.

The verdict is not surprising or even wrong.
