'Beyond a reasonable doubt' unproven, we must accept Zimmerman verdict

The standard for a conviction is "beyond a reasonable doubt.” Under the facts of the George Zimmerman case, that level of proof could never have been reached. Not guilty, however, does mean innocent, and the whole affair is a terrible tragedy. If Americans are going to rally in the streets because they do not believe a jury’s verdict and play the “race” card, out goes our entire legal system, full of faults as it is.

Zimmerman had a right to defend himself after he was assaulted and pinned on the ground. Trayvon Martin was a punk. Case closed.

Z is a weak man with a daddy as a judge that has covered his sorry butt for years.
