Following the coverage of the George Zimmerman case, I have to wonder why they bother having a trial at all.

  • Judge: Tell us in your own words what happened.
  • George Zimmerman: Well, I was driving around in my SUV with my loaded firearm, looking for anything suspicious.
  • George Zimmerman: And then I saw the guy.
  • George Zimmerman: And then I started following the guy.
  • George Zimmerman: And then the 911 dispatcher told me not to approach the guy.
  • George Zimmerman: But then I chased the guy.
  • George Zimmerman: And then I got out of my car and started punching the guy.
  • George Zimmerman: And then the guy started punching me back.
  • George Zimmerman: So I shot the guy.
  • Judge: And what is your plea again?
  • George Zimmerman: Not guilty by reason of self-defense.
  • Everyone else: *laughs his ass out of the room*
