"The basic question for the jury is: Did Mr. Zimmerman, who is Hispanic, murder Mr. Martin, an unarmed black 17-year-old, or did he shoot in self-defense?"
The NY Times should be crucified.
"On the night of Feb. 26 last year, Mr. Martin, a high school student carrying only a phone, a soft drink and a bag of Skittles, encountered Mr. Zimmerman, an armed neighborhood watchman. Minutes later, Mr. Zimmerman was on his back, with gashes on his head and a broken nose, and Mr. Martin lay dead."
Seriously. Crucified. Upside down.
"In part because there were no witnesses and Mr. Zimmerman’s injuries support his account, the prosecutors face a much higher legal hurdle than defense lawyers do."
Jesus fucking Christ, crucified upside down in front of their families. It's called the presumption of innocence you assholes.
