I was appalled by your editorial “No definition of justice.” It reflects a thoughtless emotional response to a jury decision with which you disagree. The result was not only consistent with the evidence, it was demanded by the evidence, and the last time I checked, our definition of justice being served is when there is a fair trial and a decision rendered by a jury.
That is a disservice to more than George Zimmerman. It is a disservice to all who expect your newspaper to bring us facts and rational thought. You have joined the chorus of those who refuse to accept the evidence. This was always a politically contrived prosecution, as evidenced by the refusal of the Seminole County state attorney to bring charges in the first place. It took a special prosecutor and the political “leaders” of the community to cause a vacuous prosecution, pandering to the outcry of some elements of the public inflamed by an irresponsible media.
