...and in Public Opinion. Sure, George Zimmerman has yet to have a trial in the usual justice-system sense but no matter the outcome, he will wear Trayvon Martin's death 'round his neck like an albatross. There are neighborhoods where he can never have a flat tire and he'll never write a check or use a credit card in his own name without a flash of dread. It's just short of a medieval sentence of outlawry.

This is yet another reason why shooting is a last resort -- and why trouble is better avoided than sought. Win or lose, you're liable to lose. Especially if it makes it into the news.
