Hats off to our justice system

Trayvon Martin got justice. George Zimmerman was arrested, tried and found not guilty by a jury of his peers. The standard for conviction of any crime in the United States is "beyond a reasonable doubt and to a moral certainty ..." Apparently the state's case did not rise to that level, therefore there was only one verdict the jury could hand down: not guilty. It was their duty to acquit if a reasonable doubt existed. My hat is off to our professional prosecutors and defense attorneys. Without both of their tireless work and dedication, our justice system would not work.
