Why not manslaughter?

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.

    Seeking 15 minutes of fame, if all of your primary obligations are met, is fine. Does not Baltimore Council member Nick Mosby have any serious problems in his district to solve ("Councilman wants Baltimore to boycott Florida after Zimmerman trial," Aug. 9)?
