"I thought Zimmerman would get off. I am on record on this blog saying that. So it came as no shock, no surprise. But still my bitterness got a little bit deeper. Just as it did after Troy Davis, after Katrina – and on and on all the way back to Eleanor Bumpurs, an old, unarmed black woman shot dead by the police in Harlem nearly 30 years ago. Each one a little knife in my heart, twisting, twisting, twisting. By twisted people."
