As we know, the Left will use any unfortunate situation it can get its hands on to create more laws. The George Zimmerman trial and verdict is no exception.

Earlier this year, several Democratic senators introduced the ‘End Racial Profiling Act.’
The legislation “would require federal law enforcement agencies to cease practices that permit racial profiling and to maintain adequate policies and procedures to eliminate racial profiling,”
So the proposed change in law would only affect those in law enforcement. Zimmerman was acting in a private capacity, so such a ban would not have impacted him.
Still, Democrats seized the opportunity.
We must keep working tirelessly to end racial profiling & ensure that the application of the law is equitable, just & fair for everyone

Even Anthony Weiner joined the chorus last night.
Let's make the legacy of Trayvon a commitment to ending racial profiling.

We can also call this famous Jesse Jackson quote to mind:
“There is nothing more painful to me … than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery, then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.”
@antmay even if he was profiling, that "kid" did end up on top of him.
