Zimmerman’s got something to hide
Letter writer Kevin Metz apparently hasn’t been watching the Zimmerman trial with an open mind himself.
Zimmerman has claimed he killed Martin in self-defense, despite the lack of evidence or witnesses that he was ever in danger, plus the mounting evidence that he was the aggressor from the start.
That he’s maintained his story is not surprising given the charges against him. To plead otherwise is to confirm he’s at best an irresponsible, trigger-happy idiot, and at worst a murderer.
In his shoes, which way would you plead?
