At Last... Zimmerman Facing Charges

Read through several news sources today that Zimmerman is going to be facing charges of second degree murder for his killing of Trayvon Martin.   I cheer.  I'm pleased with this news.


It is a pity that it took the efforts of hundreds of thousands of people to get Trayvon's murder in the face of law enforcement.  It is a pity that Sanford's police department could not be moved to do the right thing from the very start.

Of course I want justice for Trayvon.   It is the very least his family deserves from this country.

Part of me wonders if Zimmerman will actually stand up like a man and step out from behind his father's shadow?  I don't think he will.
