Justice in American is suppose to be all about "truth and justice".  The truth is what the attorneys are suppose to be looking for.  Well this premise is far from the truth.  In America...it is about what you can prove, and how to make your opponent (defendant) look as bad as possible in the eyes of the jury of his peers. 

Trayvon Martin was an unarmed teen returning to his father's fiance resident when George Zimmerman became suspicious of this young black male.  Zimmerman profiled Martin based on the reputation of young black males in America, and followed, and eventually gunned him down.  America jurisprudence failed Martin.  The defense wants to destroy Martin in front of the jurors even though Martin had only gone to the store, and tried to return home that faithful night. Martin's crime was being a young black male in America.
