Here in this court of law today we will examine the defendant Mr. George Zimmerman and his involvement in the murder of Trayvon Martin. Mr. Zimmerman I do hope that your mental state is ok after surviving that traumatic encounter with Trayvon Martin; not just any man can shoot an unarmed fleeing teenager who looked mildly suspicious. It takes a man of valor, a true enforcer of lady justice, to hold the position of neighborhood watch in the twin lakes retreat gated community. Being a man of such prowess it makes sense that you would be able to disregard all norms and rules our society has in place and valiantly take the law into your own hand.
