George Zimmerman is “not guilty”

I am not happy with the verdict. But, let’s stop blaming the jurors. We don’t know what instructions they got from the judge and it is not easy to be a juror. Remember that the prosecution job is to convince them that Zimmerman was guilty without reasonable doubt. They failed to do so. Rather than getting angry at jurors, defense lawyers or the judge, we should be angry at ourselves. What type of society are we living in where a young black teen is seen as a threat? Let’s look at our own hidden biases first before blaming other people.
