In his July 21 column, “The Zimmerman case: A touch of sanity,” Charles Krauthammer said that the tragic event was “an encounter in the dark of two men, confused, agitated and fearful.”

While he is free to poetically characterize the emotional state of these two people on the night in question however he wishes, he is factually wrong when he states that they were both men. The encounter was between a man and a boy, not two men.
