The night the verdict was read Wade responded on Twitter worrying about his sons' future in a state where people can follow and ultimately fatally shoot young black children without being convicted of any charges.

Because let’s be clear here: According to current Florida law, you can get a gun, follow an unarmed minor, call the police, have them explicitly tell you to stop following them, then choose to ignore that, keep following the minor, get into a confrontation with them, and if at any point during that process you get scared, you can shoot the minor to death. And the state of Florida would say 'Well, you did what you could.'
