And maybe look for a good taxidermist to mount the trophy.
Zimmerman pales in comparison to an angry white guy named Michael David Dunn.
Nine months after Trayvon Martin was murdered, Dunn pulled up to a Jacksonville, Florida convenience store.
A Dodge Durango with four black teens occupied the adjoining parking place, loud music playing.
"I hate that thug music," Dunn told his girlfriend.
Dunn ordered the teens to turn it down. The driver did. Jordan Davis, a passenger in the back seat, turned it back up. An argument escalated.
"You're not gonna talk to me like that," Dunn shouted and pulled a gun.
The Durango driver yelled "duck" and sped a short distance under a hail of bullets, nine of which hit the vehicle, three of which hit and killed Jordan Davis.
Dunn left the scene but bystanders got his license number.
"No!" Ron Davis sobbed when informed. "My son's dead because his music was too loud?"
Ron Davis told writer Paul Solotaroff that when Dunn was arrested, he said "They defied my orders. What was I supposed to do if they wouldn't listen?"
Dunn is currently being held without bail and may well become the next George Zimmerman. Everywhere but Ohio, prosecutors must be able to prove a defendant was not acting in self defense.
The accused need only assert that he/she felt threatened.
Looks like a bull market for mind readers.
"I don't have to prove the threat, just that Mike Dunn believed it," Dunn's lawyer says.
The Zimmerman jury was instructed to follow Gunshine State law.
"Stand Your Ground" is the latest in a long line of masterful National Rifle Association handgun marketing ploys.
"In the eight years since the passage of Stand Your Ground, self-defense killings have more than tripled in Florida, and prosecutors sometimes have little choice but to accept the shooter's story: The only other witness is in the morgue," Solotaroff wrote.
"It's been a godsend for violent ex-cons who're adept at gaming the system."
Homicides are up in all the SYG states and down almost everywhere else. The law has provided drug gangs with get-out-of-jail-free cards.
An SYG bill was proposed in Nevada's 2011 legislative session.
What do you get when you cross SYG with well-funded defense teams adept at jury selection? An entire generation of well-armed OJ's like George Zimmerman.
Esté bien. Haga infierno.
Be well. Raise hell.
