"But whatever George Zimmerman's culpability in 
Martin's shooting, he is not to blame for the 
social order of pre-civil-rights America. He 
has every right to mount a vigorous defense,

trial, to give the defendant the benefit of 
any reasonable doubt.

The rightful term to describe a criminal trial 
that serves as a 'referendum' is "show trial."
