The "Rorschach" Facts in the Killing of Trayvon Martin :: Gatestone Institute

The "Rorschach" Facts in the Killing of Trayvon Martin :: Gatestone Institute: The time has come for the cheerleading on both sides to stop in the killing of Trayvon Martin and for everybody to unite around the need for the truth—or as much of it as we can recapture— to emerge as to precisely what happened on that dark, rainy night. Once the facts have been established, by scientific, forensic and other evidence, then we can begin to analyze whether these facts constitute a defense under Florida's stand your ground statute, which, for better or worse, strongly favors the defendant.

At the moment, the facts in the case—at least those known to the public—are ever shifting. One journalist aptly characterized the case as, "a narrative Rorschach that each side will interpret as it wishes." Now it has been announced that the special prosecutor may soon release new information that may change both the public perception of the case and its legal strengths and weaknesses.

Several points can be made even now with a high degree of certainty.
