'Two Systems Went Against George Zimmerman That He Can’t Understand'

"Zimmerman Defense Attorney Chastises Media During Press Conference: ‘You Guys’ Went After Him Like Mad Scientists," Jonathon M. Seidl writes at The Blaze:

Mark O’Mara, the lead defense attorney for George Zimmerman, took the opportunity during the final moments of his post-verdict press conference to chastise the media for its handling of the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case.

“Two systems went against George Zimmerman that he can’t understand: you guys, the media. He was like a patient in an operating table where a mad scientists were committing experiments on him and he he had no anesthesia,” an agitated O’Mara said after a reporter asked if Zimmerman ever showed emotion. “He didn’t know why he was turned into this monster, but quite honestly you guys had a lot to do with it. You just did. Because you took a story that was fed to you and you ran with it, and you ran right over him. And that was horrid to him.

“Then he comes into a system that he trusts — let’s not forget, six voluntary statements, voluntary surrender — and he believes in a system that he really wanted to be a part of, right? And then he gets prosecutors that charge him with a crime that they could never, ever, prove. … So those two systems failed him.”

Yet another Obama supporter discovers, albeit in a particularly brutal way, how badly the system can be rigged against him.

But does he now "understand" what happened, or does his liberal epistemic closure remain?
