9. Our judicial system is on review at this trial (as all others).

The question that we should be asking of ourselves and others is:


We must remember that this trial is not about social/political issues that can and should be addressed elsewhere in our society. This trial is about whether the defendant is guilty of murder two under the laws of Florida and the US. This is a particular crime of two people at a particular time and place. And the defendant is innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. this puts the burden of proof on the prosecution.

If we can look at the trial in this manner, we can direct our energies to changing the laws if we choose.
