“I think the jury made the right decision based on the evidence presented, because the prosecution inadvertently set the standard so high that the jury had to be convinced that it was a deliberate act by Zimmerman that he was not at all defending himself, and so forth It’s not a moral question, it’s a legal question and the American law requires that the jury listens to the evidence presented.”
When asked the trial says something about the state of racial relations in the United States, Carter said he feels America will put aside the feelings about the past.You know, for the first time in my adult life I am proud of Jimmy Carter!
