The Not Guilty Verdict of the Zimmerman Trial Should Trigger a Lot of Questions

The George Zimmerman murder of 16-year-old Trayvon Martin trial verdict has prompted many including me to ask many questions as to the fairness of the trial. Some of us were glued to the television throughout the trial and were stunned (infuriated) when the verdict of “not guilty” was read.
