I find it funny that so many people are so outwardly upset about the Zimmerman verdict.
Before you get me wrong: I am upset, too.
The prosecution charged too high; they chose to fight for sensation rather than for justice.
But people act as though Zimmerman is getting away without punishment.
As though his life is not over.
As though he will not spend the rest of his days in hiding, forever looking over his shoulder and perpetually fearing for his safety during any and all public interactions.
Those who require vindication in order to cope with the fact that terrible things are bound to happen within a population of genetically imperfect beings can take comfort in the fact that Zimmerman's decisions will never again be truly his own.
