Zimmerman is a free man but is he really FREE...
Guilty or not guilty, my heart goes out to Trayvon's parents. They lost a 17 year old son.

Who really failed here? The prosecution? The jury? No. The laws in the state of FL failed. Be constructive in response. Focus on change.

Did the jury get it right? I can't answer that question.. But a kid lost his life and it all could have been prevented. — TJ Lang (@TJLang70) July 14, 2013
