For those who may be interested in Florida vs George Zimmerman, I will do my best to post updates and any related information here. Earlier I was following this case but due to taking an unbiased middle of the road stance, I could not find a blog where I was welcomed.
From the get go, this case was not just about a neighborhood watchman shooting an unarmed 17 year old male youth, it became a mixture of race, gun control, politics and the Stand Your Ground laws. It became a black or white issue and few blogs, if any, wanted to look at both sides without repercussions. As a result, I quit voicing my opinions on the case however, I plan to follow the case from a legal perspective and watch closely the strategy of the two sides.
You are welcome to comment on this thread or just read. I ask you to refrain from dicussing race and/or political issues. These two controversial topics can escalate into disagreements which I hope to avoid.
