Sick of the racism charges in the tragic George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case? Then why don't you express any regret over Martin's death or express any interest in his innocence? Or even address how badly Zimmerman fumbled the matter?

Zimmerman was guilty of target fixation (check with the NRA's safety rules for the meaning of this). Disobeying a police request to cease pursuit, and provoking a confrontation because he knew he could always claim self-defense.

Trayvon Martin was only guilty of standing his ground -- without a gun.
