Gideon at A Public Defender has found the ultimate anti-Zimmerman verdict piece on the blog In These Times and completely demolished it. The original piece claimed that the jurors suffered from hubris when they gave a not-guilty verdict and claimed they know more about the case than a casual viewer of MSNBC would.

Gideon completely nailed this. The In These Times piece comes from a dark world where the facts are whatever one believes them to be and the only purpose of a jury is to return a conviction.

Hat tip to that great hat in Rome, Popehat.
