    ...is anybody "defending" GZ? Explaining how the law pertains to his case, and that it may favor his case, is not defending him. It's simply giving an understanding of the reality of the law in this instance.

      explained that everything is about GZ's rights and not about Trayvon's, as if because he is dead, he has none.

      •  I don't think anyone is disputing TM's rights (4+ / 0-)

        On the other hand, there has long been a liberal tradition of concern for the rights of the accused.

        Spending a lot of time talking about George Zimmerman's rights is about as disrespectful to Trayvon Martin's rights as spending a lot of time talking about the rights of accused terrorists is disrespectful towards the rights of those who died on 9/11, which is to say not at all.

          don't spend a lot of time fighting over whether I am a good liberal. I may not be. From my position, the good liberals are not very concerned with Trayvon's rights and that is tragic, but carry on.
