“In this country those charged with a crime are innocent until proven guilty. And it is difficult to see how the jury in the George Zimmerman case could have reached a decision other than the one it did. There was no way of concluding beyond a reasonable doubt that, based on the known facts, he was guilty of second-degree murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Guilty of grievously bad judgment? Yes. But murder? No.”
