An American Justice System Gone Insane?

More on Trayvon Martin Case

... he witnessed a black male, wearing a dark-colored “hoodie” on top of a white or Hispanic male and throwing punches “MMA (mixed martial arts) style.” He stated that he yelled out to the two individuals that he was going to call the police. He then heard a “pop.” He stated that after hearing the “pop,” he observed the person he had previously observed on top of the other person (the black male wearing the “hoodie”) laid out on the grass. _Bob Owens

Trayvon's autopsy revealed bloody knuckles as if he had beaten someone viciously, and drugs in his blood and urine.

Zimmerman's scalp was abraded as if the back of his head had hit a hard surface.
Broken Nose

Zimmerman's nose had been broken, as if someone had sucker-punched him in the face. Both eyes were blackened.

The evidence is consistent with Zimmerman's initial testimony, supporting the original judgment of the police not to place charges against the neighborhood watch captain, who was apparently looking out for his neighborhood which had been repeatedly victimised by young punks.

Trayvon's chest wound revealed powder marks, consistent with being shot at relatively close range. There was a single shot.

A brief confession by Al Fin: If Al Fin were tracking someone down to kill them, he would initially shoot them at a distance no closer than 5 to 10 metres, centre mass, in order the stop or slow them. The initial shot would be followed in close succession by shots aimed at the head and upper chest. Were Al Fin to set out to kill someone, he would not allow his target to beat him to a bloody pulp first, nor would he allow the target to get close enough so that shots would leave powder burns on the target.

It is clear that Zimmerman did not intend to shoot or kill anyone that night. Only when Trayvon made himself a credible threat to the life of Zimmerman ("now you're gonna die" etc) did the shooter fire his weapon, apparently as a last resort.

The prosecutor who brought charges should be dismissed and charged with prosecutorial misconduct. The law should exist in the background, to be used only as necessary. The law should not be used as a political tool, as it is apparently being used in the Trayvon case.
