Some pundits this morning are making noise to the effect that although Zimmerman was found "Not Guilty", meaning he was not guilty of the charges against him, yet he was guilty of "something" because Travon died. Conversely, they are saying that Travon was not guilty of anything but going out for Skittles.
Well, if Zimmerman was not guilty based on a self-defense defense, then Travon must have been guilty of attacking Zimmerman, right?
Travon will never go on trial for that, so Travon is "Not Guilty", also.
The basis of our legal code is "innocent until proven guilty."
It's not the basis of legal codes elsewhere, a famous example being the Napoleonic Code.
But that aside, here in America, you are innocent until proven guilty in the eyes of the law.
This is true even of Nadal Hassan.
Zimmerman is Not Guilty. That is the same as Innocent.
In the eyes of the Law.
