Agreed, however, the problem with the Zimmerman case in my opinion is the lack of a paper trail explaining why they determined that prosecuting him at the time of the incident was inappropriate. From what has been publicly released the charge of second degree murder is excessive and a charge of manslaughter is debatable requiring more evidence than I currently have.
I worry that due to the MSM trying to declare him guilty in a one-sided public trial, we will see riots after Zimmerman is acquitted or released due to inability to find an unbiased jury.
I think the police did their job exactly correct in this case. They determined from statements from Zimmerman, physical evidence at the scene, and eye witness reports that this was in fact a self defense shooting and there was simply no probable cause to arrest Zimmerman. I'm sure there is more than enough paper trail from the police reports, interviews of Zimmerman and so on. The thing that people don't seem to understand and this is the reason for the existence of these special protection laws like stand your ground is that we DON'T EVEN ARREST innocent people, much less prosecute when there is simply no probable cause. I will add that with the physical evidence and eye witness reports had Trayvon lived, the police would have arrested him! What the determination of the police report essentially says is that Trayvon Martin was the perpetrator who was killed in self defense by Zimmerman who was in fact the victim.
