Re "Zimmerman or Martin: Who's the thug?" (Forum, Nov. 24): After reading the opinion piece by Leonard Pitts Jr., it made me really start to think about the whole trial again. George Zimmerman sat on the stand day after day with this want-to-be-innocent look on his face. Zimmerman acted like he had nothing to do with Martin's death and that he was only trying to defend himself. Now that Zimmerman has been in the news for his violence against his wife as well as girlfriend, I believe people will start to take notice that Trayvon Martin did not get justice and was not given a far trial because everyone regarded him as some type of thug. The article did a great job of explaining the difference between the two and showing Zimmerman was the thug.
