Guy With Gun Might Use It

Hopefully the legal authorities keep Shellie Zimmerman safe.

I didn't really fault the jury for their decision. Given (horrible) state law and the allowable evidence, I'm not sure a guilty verdict was really on the table. But "gun nut with racist vigilante murder fantasy" was always the obvious conclusion to draw. I've known a couple of them in my life, though as far as I know none of them ever actually lived their fantasy.
