George Zimmerman - Why He Is Not Guilty

  I've heard many people repeatedly say that the shooting was Zimmerman's fault because he left his truck on that night in Dec. 2012. I wish that I had a dollar for every time that flawed (and stupid) line of reasoning is stated.
  Most of those in my little social circle have a different view. It's not that we don't think that George Zimmerman made a poor choice. It is the fact that we don't blame the victim for a crime. You aren't partially to blame for your radio being stolen because you left your car unlocked. You aren't partially guilty of being raped because your clothing is skin tight, and you're walking after dark.
  We Don't Blame The Victim. If you're obeying the law then you're obeying the freaking law. End of story.
  Apparently this view is not shared by most of the media, and Zimmerman's detractors.
  Did Zimmerman make a poor choice on the night of the shooting? That is without a doubt. Was it illegal, or immoral?
  The gentleman in the video above does a far better job than I can in stating why Zimmerman is not legally to blame for the attack that led to the shooting. This is one of the best videos that I've seen on this topic, and it should be used as a primer for the make believe "Journalists" that are shaping the views of so many impressionable minds.
