Without regard to the whole free will/choice/destiny conundrum, I applaud the jury's verdict in the Zimmerman case.
It was simply a failure on the part of the prosecutors to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt. Like Johnny Cochran said in the O.J. trial - "if it doesn't fit (the glove), you must acquit."

That "reasonable doubt" clause is the only facet of our justice system that makes it tolerable.

Just as there really is no such thing as "free will" - there is also no such thing as "justice".

Zimmerman is going to suffer for the rest of his life no matter what happens.
