George Zimmerman Acquitted.


There is no question that George Zimmerman shot and killed a defenseless unarmed young man. It was an impulsive act. Most likely driven by prejudice.

He should not have had a loaded gun. He should have obeyed the order to get back in his car and wait for the police. He should not have assumed that a black youth was necessarily menacing.

But putting him in jail would not have been justice served. Now free he can begin to deal with his actions and take full responsibility for having killed this youth.

He has been given a second chance to become more humane, less prejudice, less impulsive and a more thoughtful person.

He can become a leader in promoting a more compassionate and tolerant attitude toward all human beings, even Blacks.
