Having lived through the inane OJ trial, I found the Zimmerman trial to be less than compelling, and only caught snippets as Thaddeus changed channels.
What It Means
The jury decision means that when there’s a case that’s difficult to prove, people who can afford lawyers better than our prosecuting attorneys, will usually be found not-guilty.
Do I think justice was done? I do not.
Do I think Zimmerman was guilty of murder. I do.
Do I think the prosecutors proved that Zimmerman was guilty of either murder or manslaughter? I do not.
Do I think the verdict means that racism is alive and well in this country? I do.
So, in case you wondered where I stood on this issue, now you know. I’m very sad for the Martin family. Trayvon’s death was tragic.
I have three projects actively going at the moment. A pair of socks (that were started months ago), the Koigu Interlocking Scarf, and the Mini Mochi baby blanket.
Since I made the most progress on the baby blanket, you get photos of that today.
I’m using Garter Rib with garter stitch edging all around. When I’m finished, I will machine wash the blanket, to determine how washable (or not) Mini Mochi is. I’ll keep you posted.
