#tellusatoday: Justice in George Zimmerman case?

George Zimmerman’s attorney plans to push the judge to drop second-degree murder charges on self-defense grounds. We asked on Twitter how justice could best be served. Responses edited for clarity and grammar:.

Florida’s “select, chase, pursue and shoot at will” laws will aid his cause.

— @Looiedl.

Shouldn’t he have to prove self-defense, with a jury of his peers?

— @J_Dub23_1.

Charges should be dropped. Evidence, witnesses support Zimmerman’s claim.

— @Coreshift.

There should be a trial. Evidence supports second-degree murder and hate-crimes charges.

— @Nevermore1976.

DNA, forensics and witnesses do not support Zimmerman’s claim of self-defense.

— @RIPTrayvonn.

Who’s screaming for help on the 911 tape, Trayvon Martin or George Zimmerman?

— @Delivery43.

Justice works both ways. Zimmerman is entitled to a self-defense hearing. The evidence is in his favor, and he should have equal rights.

— @PPacking.
