I agree with Rosalie Rosenfeld (Letters, "Only Brown to blame for all his choices," Dec. 9) regarding Officer Darren Wilson and George Zimmerman. I, too, kept up with all the news. The two cases have some similarities; however, I watched the Zimmerman story, including the trial.
Going back to the very beginning, George Zimmerman was told by the police to "stay in his vehicle," and that someone was on the way to the scene. We know that Zimmerman was on Neighborhood Watch. If Zimmerman had obeyed orders, Trayvon Martin would be alive today. Trayvon was not armed. When he was attacked by Zimmerman, Trayvon fought back. In the struggle, Zimmerman shot Trayvon.
In the case of Officer Wilson, Michael Brown was going after the officer's gun and the shooting was self-defense.
Let's hope that justice will prevail.
Never miss a local story.
