Letter: Verdict declares open season on those who are different

The Zimmerman acquittal proves that these so-called “stand your ground” laws are little more than 21st century lynch laws.

See someone in your neighborhood whose mode of dress, physical size or pigmentation “intimidates” you in any way? Shoot him. As long as you’re “whiter” than your victim, you’ll walk.
