    but even more important is making sure that laws are changed so that cowboys like Zimmerman don't believe that the law will protect them, and that the dealers of death who create laws like stand your ground are exposed and discredited.

    While these new facts may make the case against Zimmerman tougher, the discussion about whether these laws should be repealed needs to happen, and if there was indeed a struggle of some sort, that discussion will be at the center of the debate.  If the stalk to kill narrative holds, and murder 2 sticks, then the gun nuts will say the law worked, and crazies like Zimmerman aren't protected by it, even though Zimmerman would have walked without the media attention.

    Again, I want to see justice, but the most just outcome of this tragedy would be a change to the system that allowed this to happen in the first place.

    Run for office. It's fun!
