Why not manslaughter?

July 20, 2013

We've heard a lot about George Zimmerman fearing for his life, which apparently justified his actions in the minds of the trial jury, but I haven't heard anyone talk about, or even suggest, that maybe Trayvon Martin also feared for his life and acted accordingly ("No justice," July 16).

Manslaughter was the only true justice that should have been meted out in this case.
