Heckuva way to run a country

It seems to me that the prosecutors in Florida only prosecuted George Zimmerman because they were pressured into it. There was no case there, and they knew it. The case they put on was an embarrassment. A total waste of money. Their own witnesses couldn't corroborate the story they were called to the stand to testify to.

I think the prosecution knew they were going to lose. They charged Zimmerman and threw a giant barrel of garbage at him with no real expectation of winning. Why? Because they were too afraid not to. They were afraid of being called racist for not prosecuting the killer of Trayvon Martin.
