Zimmerman To Be Charged

CNN is reporting that the special prosecutor in Florida will announce that criminal charges will be brought against Zimmerman in the Trayvon Martin shooting.  Not really a surprise given the attention the shooting has brought.  The prosecutor's announcement will come at 6 pm this evening.

It is not known what the charge will be.

It's also not known where Zimmerman is.

The controversy now moves into a new phase.  It will start with conservatives whining about how liberals got the scalp they were looking for.  Of course, we're not.  All we wanted was some sense of justice.  Bringing NO charges against Zimmerman would have been unjust.  Now, Zimmerman gets his day in court — something Treyvon didn't even get.
