Get ready for the Zimmerman acquittal riots

Day by day, George Zimmerman's acquittal in the Trayvon Martin case looks more and more certain.

The latest blow to the prosecution: expert testimony that Martin was sitting on Zimmerman when he was shot.

There was never a case against Zimmerman. Only because of politics is this trial even taking place. But it seems that when an African-American is killed by a white man under any circumstances in which there is the slightest amount of ambiguity,  the latter is considered guilty in this society until proven innocent.

And perhaps thereafter.

Meanwhile, Broward County law enforcement officials are preparing for riots if (or rather, when) Zimmerman is acquitted.

Sadly, as Zimmerman's attorney, Mark O'Meara,  points out, Zimmerman will never be safe.  He will live in fear for the rest of his life- ironically, a victim of racism, racial profiling, and the spirit of the lynch mob.
