Who remembers the attorney's rule for when you've done something that may end up in court? Two simple little words: Shut up.
Tempting though it may be to "get your side of the story out," it's not worth it. The way Zimmerman is being raked over the coals for having said of the mess in which he is embroiled, "It's G-d's plan" should be a warning example.
(Six commenters are now going to explain to me what he meant. --I get it; "I'm a little guy caught up in a huge event and all I can do is look to my faith" is a normal reaction. But it doesn't matter. It has already been spun against him, as was inevitable.)
Guilty or innocent, when you're facing a trial, just shut up!
