My Zimmerman and Trayvon observation

I’m so sick of hearing about George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin. I didn’t follow the case closely, so I don’t know all the details, but Zimmerman sure looked guilty to me. It’s no question that he shot an unarmed kid half his size. Then again I wasn’t there on the jury, I didn’t hear all the facts, I don’t understand the Florida “Stand your ground” laws, so it is what it is. People always seem to get off when the media makes a big deal of a case.

What I don’t understand is why everything has to be turned into a political issue? My Facebook feed—which is mostly my family who are all Christian conservatives—are all on Zimmerman’s side. My Twitter feed is the exact opposite. Why is that? Is it people’s choice of news outlets that influences them? Is it a racial thing and conservatives are really that racist? I don’t know?

It’s just an interesting phenomenon that I haven’t noticed before. I’m going to have to pay more attention during the next media hyped case. I didn’t know anybody that was on OJ’s or Casey Anthony’s side. I never choose a side because I hate media hyped cases. I usually just don’t care enough. I trust our justice system and hope they have competent jurors. It’s not perfect, but it is what it is.
