“Let justice be done, though the heavens fall.”

William Murray, Lord Mansfield said that……and Saturday night, six very brave women took it to heart and declared George Zimmerman not guilty…..

Not guilty of second degree murder, and not guilty of manslaughter….because he was acting in self defense when he killed Trayvon Martin.

Reactions are coming thick and fast – too many of them exactly what we have  been expecting.

I can’t express how thrilled it makes me that the cynical and political prosecution of Mr. Zimmerman has come a cropper.  The right of self defense is vindicated, and the forces of division and fear have been defeated, in the short run at least.

Finally, if anyone releases any identification of the members of the jury, they need to be charged, convicted, and jailed.
