I disagree:

Zimmerman is a willfull idiot who was going to do something stupid with a weapon sooner than later. Being a willfull idiot does not make Zimmerman a rascist and does not make him guilty of murder. It does, however, reduce my sympathy for him.
If we tried to lock up all of the willful idiots, there wouldn't be enough prisons. Come to think of it, there already aren't enough prisons for the people that the authorities want to keep locked up.
