If someone is in his/her automobile and the neighborhood is rioting. He/she has a few people jumping on the car and laughing. He/she has others throwing projectiles at the vehicle. Some are banging on the car with their fists or bats. What does he/she do? What if he/she fears for personal safety or life. What if the whole family is in vehicle?.....so he/she gun decks the gas pedal.a few people on the car is thrown off and get injured. He/she also runs over a couple of rioters and they die. Is he/she liable to be charged with a hate crime? Does Jessie and Al show up again? A growing amount of people are already not trusting their government anymore as the minority ass lick is in overdrive. So what does a person do?

No, Mr Zimmerman will not be tried again. Trayvon's parents, and the Attorney General have had plenty of time to charge Zimmerman with a phony civil rights charge. They were just blowing smoke.

Yes, he will.

He can still be charged for lying during the bail hearing.

And when someone with his mental deficiencies loses the spotlight, you can be sure he'll step in it again.

Innocent of murder.
Can you provide one case in the history of the criminal justice system in which a person is deemed innocent? There is no such thing.

Not following the thread, eh?

By the way, in some countries you can be found innocent.

Anything else?

Either you are innocent, or guilty "of the charge." The idiot prosecutor over charged Zimerman. Tried to go for a lesser charge, couldn't prove that either, and lost on all charges. If he is guilty of anything it is hiring lawyers so much smarter about the law then the State of Florida.

No, it's guilty or not guilty. Not guilty is a legal term meaning the state didn't prove its case, or there was a shadow of a doubt of his guilt.

Nope.

Guilty or not guilty... how do you plead?

You could be right, that means Mr Zimmerman was found not guilty. He already showed off his new gun to the Texas State police officer, and got a warning for speeding. What was he doing in Texas? I bet he is going to move there. It is bigger then Florida, and the people all carry. He'll fit right in.

Showing off is what this pedophile cop wannabe does best.

It is what the rest of the world can count on, and why we can be sure he isn't going to be running around free much longer.

Like OJ.

Who will stop him? Most people are like the police officer. They know he was railroaded, and they will see to it he stays free for a long, long, long time.

I find it amazing how stupid people can really be, and how much they allow the media to control their emotions. No witness was there to see what happened prior to the fight, and there wasn't ANY evidence at all to prove he was 100% guilty. Children are killed every day in places like Chicago, and the media puts all of their effort on GZ because they know themselves that people are stupid and fall for it hook, line, and sinker. Where is everyone's anger when a young girl gets raped? Just no time for that right now. GZ is hot news, and there are suckers out there by the millions.

Like Chicago?

Like everywhere in the USA, like 35 times a day, like someone kills six people a week ago and know one hears of it.

Here's a thought: you start posting a dozen people or so who are killed daily and that way you can say you've done your part?

Where's your anger when a husband takes the gun he said he bought for protection and shoots his wife?

That happens several times a day.

I notice you haven't mentioned the names of women killed in the last day or so.

Yes, the DOJ has ALREADY made the decision NOT to prosecute Zimmerman under Civil Rights Laws,

The signs are CLEAR:

1) The ACLU has been ORDERED to stand down and they complied.

2) Jesse Jackson has been ORDERED to shift his focus to the SYG law and is no longer pushing the Civil Rights Case.

3) Same for Rev. Al

4) Same for Obama

Obama's ONLY Concen, as he CERTAINLY doesn't care about TM, is how to maintain the best political posture.
