Thank Goodness

Very Short: I am gratified that George Zimmerman has been charged with second degree murder in the killing of unarmed Trayvon Martin. That is appropriate. It took far too long, but at least this initial step has now been taken.

Let's not forget, however, that this charge is only the very first step toward justice for Trayvon Martin. Now comes the harder part. This charge will probably not stop all of the extrajudicial spinning by "legal advisers" and "family friend[s]", but now that's not as important. It's up to the Special Prosecutor and her team to put together a case that proves Z's guilt beyond a reasonable doubt to a unanimous jury.

I hope they will do just that.
