Dismay and sadness, sure, I'm not a fan of people dying.
But outrage? Outrage at what?
Because he committed no crime, there is no place for desire that such behavior be classified as criminal in the future?
Where was this desire? Are you referring to SYG? Because changing that law would not have changed the verdict in this case. So what specific behaviour of Zimmerman's would the progressives like to see classified as criminal?
Before you answer, understand that any new criminal law you create will be used disproportionately against blacks. Are you sure you still want to make that behaviour a criminal act?
Because he committed no crime, there is no place for doubt as to whether the law would have been applied equally fairly to a black defendant?
Maybe for 15 seconds before you could check the statistics on google (as helpfully provided by Ata previously in this thread) which show the opposite. So to an ignorant person, or to a person unwilling to spend 15 seconds to actually check on the matter I suppose you're entitled to your anger and doubt.
Because he committed no crime, it is impossible to suggest his actions were influenced by racial bias?
, no. Unreasonable, yes. There is no evidence to suggest his actions were influenced by a racial bias. And contrary to the false narrative that Z is a white racist pig the available evidence suggests Z is a friend of black people.
You can go back and check this thread when it started, before I watched the case develop I even bought into some of the lies. Some of my first posts showed a contempt for Zimmerman, clouded by my own hatred of HOAs and "neighbourhood watch busybodies." But then information started to get out, and rather than people recognize the correct information nearly every verifiable fact of this case was turned around by the media and by CRT proponents as it's gone along. Based on what was presented at trial the state had no business ever filing charges against Zimmerman. CRT progressives had no business blowing this up into a false narrative for their own political purposes. And the President had no business commenting on a local criminal prosecution in some shitty small town in FLA.
