However you feel about the verdict in the George Zimmernan trial, the one thing you must remember is that the American system of Justice played itself out as it was designed too. Mr. Zimmerman was given a trial by a jury of his peers, and the Prosecution failed to prove their case. For those of you who are not satisfied with the verdict, please keep calm, and show your disappointment in peaceful ways, don’t start riots or any other means of violence. There were no winners in this case. There is a 17 year old boy who has lost his life, leaving behind grieving parents, and Mr. Zimmerman’s life will never be the same again.
Here are some reasons we Americans should be proud to be citizens of this great country:
1: You have free speech. You can say whatever you want, though it’s always wise to think before you speak.
2: You have the freedom of religion (or lack thereof). Practice whatever faith you want to, or if you don’t want to subscribe to any religion, you won’t get into trouble.
3: Don’t like how the government is being run? IF YOU ARE 18 OR OLDER, VOTE!
4: Also, you can voice your displeasure with the government without being arrested or otherwise harassed
5: In trouble with the law? You will get a fair trial
6: Woman or a minority? You’ll be treated (at least in theory) as equal to white males.
7: Don’t want cops just busting in without good reason? They need a warrant
