Seven columns/posts I recommend, without necessarily agreeing in full with their contents:
* Eric Zorn, “20 Things I Think About the George Zimmerman Case,” Chicago Tribune (pre-verdict)
* William Saletan, Slate (case “was about misjudgment and overreaction — exactly what we’re doing now to the verdict.”)
* John Steele, Legal Ethics Forum, on prosecution’s post-trial interviews.
* Jonathan Adler, New York Times “Room for Debate” (don’t use federal “hate crimes” statute to give prosecutors second bite at apple).
* Jeralyn Merritt, “The Legacy of the George Zimmerman Trial” (and Merritt’s writings on the case generally), TalkLeft.
* Dan Markel, PrawfsBlawg (“even though over-charging is routine,” it’s “an ethical problem hiding in plain sight.”)
