The system did work as intended, however: the burden was on the prosecution and they failed to prove Martin didn't act in self-defense (and proving a negative is a big hill to climb, much less in court). Not surprising, but still disappointing (and more than a little scary) that apparently someone can play toy cop, initiate a confrontation, get in over their head, kill another person dead, and not be at least partially responsible for that outcome ...

But, to paraphrase: the US justice system is the worst on earth, except for all the others ...

... and so it goes.
