Don: I agree that politics needs to stay out of the court room. But unfortunately that is impossible under the current system when the appointment of judges is political. But that's a subject for another day.
However, I think it is worthy to note that it would appear that the only people that can readily be identified with the post Trayvon Martin uproar are on the left. That should be made clear as it sends a strong message about their 'view' of this world and our country.

John Flanagan: Excellent points. Those who made this into a racist incident only inflamed tensions, and the media thrives on controversy as well. Since the FBI, which has a diverse group of agents of all colors, investigated the matter diligently, we can assume that the findings of no racist sentiment on Zimmerman's part are true. After all, under political pressure, the FBI still did a professional and objective investigation, interviewing just under 40 people familiar with Zimmerman. You can be sure they left no stone unturned. There was no indication in Zimmerman's past, by words, actions, or sentiment, that he was a racist. The legal system ruled in Zimmerman's favor. We need to move on.
