This isn’t a court of justice, son, this is a court of law

So in the eyes of the law George Zimmerman is not a murderer.

This grown-ass man who followed a teenager, got out of his truck to confront him after explicitly being told not to by the police dispatcher, ended up in fight with him, then shot him, is not a murderer in the eyes of the law.

George Zimmerman followed, shot, and killed Trayvon Martin, but in the eyes of the law, he is not a murderer.

The law, as the saying goes, is an ass.

George Zimmerman may not be a murderer, but he is a killer. He killed a young man, he killed Trayvon Martin, and while the jury may acquit him of murder, it cannot take away the deed itself.

George Zimmerman may not be murderer, but he is killer. He will always be a killer.
