    Zimmerman did indeed murder Martin. That is not in dispute. Self-defense really isn't the argument either, as SYG doesn't require proof that your life was in danger. All you have to do is FEEL like MAYBE you're in danger, and that's your Get Out of Jail Free card. To extrapolate from that the idea that he's an "innocent man" is to infer Zimmerman didn't pull the trigger.

    There's a reason why jurors say "we find the defendant not guilty" as opposed to "we find the defendant innocent."

    You know you're winning a fight against a Republican when they stop mocking your position and start whining about your tone.
