My fear is that the victim is being put on trial, and Zimmerman’s defense will do so without hesitation.

ZIMMERMAN’S got a history of violence. And he shot a teenager he’d been, by his own admission, following. If Martin punched him, he was well within his rights. Under goddamn Florida law.

Bleah. It punches all my buttons. It used to be routine to drag out a rape victim’s sexual history in court.

Zimmerman’s gonna get off and there’s not gonna be a damn thing that we or anyone else is gonna be able to do about it, except for maybe one thing.

My last hope is for the Martin family to be able to do what the Goldman family did to O.J. and get Zimmerman for wrongful death in a civil suit, but even that is fading as the defense gets to mine for anything to use to denigrate Martin in court.

This whole affair stinks to high heaven and has since before Martin wound up on a slab.
