Correct. The left wants Zimmerman's scalp.
And they want "stand your ground" laws discredited.
They're going for both -- even though the one has nothing whatsoever to do with the case.
They don’t technically care a whiff about stand your ground laws, per second. Instead, what they see here is a wedge issue that they think they can use to drive up voter turnout for this fall’s elections. This will be the issue that every candidate has to choose sides on in the fall campaign. Liberal, even those who fully supported the law when it was passed, will line up against it and the narrative will be that President Obama is the sensible candidate who is against these racist and dangerous stand your ground laws.
