Trial outcomes depend on may things besides guilty or innocent. It does not change the fact that Zimmerman's actions ended up killing a unarmed teenage kid walking along a sidewalk in a community where his father was staying.
Maybe in your redneck la la land, that makes perfectly good sense.
Zimmerman was supposed to be a trained professional but made many mistakes that caused Martin's death.

For all the railing against dysfunction in the nation’s capital, very little actually happened to overcome it — until this week. That’s why the agreement to begin putting an end to Senate filibusters of presidential nominees is a very big deal.

<quoted text> Zimmerman had no sense. No sense to stay in his truck, no sense not to be armed, no sense to identify himself as Neighborhood Watch.
He is not blameless.
See, this is where I disagree.

FACT: Everyone has the right to follow a suspicious person...in fact, some would say it is actually a public duty. "It is much better to report several people that are suspicious but turn
out to be all right than to not report anyone out of fear of embarrassment." NMSU Police Department.

FACT: Zimmerman had every right to carry a gun to protect himself.

FACT: Zimmerman was not working Neighborhood Watch that night so to identify himself as such would have been misleading.

Facts cannot be disputed just because you do not like where the path leads. I really hope people don't stop following suspicious people because of this case. Although I hope they will think twice about carrying a gun. IMO, pepper spray is a much better option.

Here is a police department description of a "suspicious person" and their instruction on what to do about it.{How is a person to collect the needed information without following the person?}

What To Do If You See A Suspicious Person

If you see someone that is suspicious, note the following:

What they are wearing
What they look like (height, build, hair color, skin complexion, etc.)
Where they are
The direction they are heading (if they are moving)
Any vehicles they are using (include type, color, and license plate, if possible)
What they are doing

Black Floridians have made about a third of the state’s total “Stand Your Ground” claims in homicide cases, a rate nearly double the black percentage of Florida’s population. The majority of those claims have been successful, a success rate that exceeds that for Florida whites.
http://dailycaller.com/2013/07/16/blacks-bene...
Approximately one third of Florida “Stand Your Ground” claims in fatal cases have been made by black defendants, and they have used the defense successfully 55 percent of the time, at the same rate as the population at large and at a higher rate than white defendants, according to a Daily Caller analysis of a database maintained by the Tampa Bay Times. Additionally, the majority of victims in Florida “Stand Your Ground” cases have been white.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, 59 percent of blacks who killed a white were acquitted under the Stand Your Ground law.
Yes, there was a bigger percentage of whites acquitted but blacks don't make up the majority of Florida's population.
So just hush, okay? Seriously.
At least 44 Florida blacks exonerated using Florida's "Stand Your Ground defense" claim...

the definition of moron would be excusing a president who "leads from behind" in all important issues (especially when he needs a good nights sleep before heading to a campaign fundraiser); but before facts are known he jumps right in to make divisive, hate-mongering statements--when it fits his political agenda.

I think it is time to move away from accusing Zimmerman of murder and racial profiling but not necessarily away from the deep seated racial animosity. It's a problem that should not be swept under the rug.
When we have a city like Chicago and Philadelphia closing down public schools in underprivileged areas {90 percent of students affected by public school closings in Chicago are African American; 79% in Philadelphia} we have a problem.
"From Oct. 21, 2010, to Jan. 1, 2013, the Office of Civil Rights has investigated 27 school closings, finding insufficient evidence of civil rights violations in every case. Currently, the office has 33 open cases involving 29 school districts in 22 states, officials said."
Is it any wonder blacks feel disenfranchised? Hopefully the Trayvon Martin case will open up much needed dialogue.
Given the fact that Philadelphia is 60% black and Hispanic, and given the high dropout rates in those communities, your statistic is hardly surprising.

Galt places the blame directly on the white racist Mayor and school board.

Galt is amused by the delay of the employer mandate because the government couldn't get its act together soon enough.

In private business, all involved would either be fired or would work nights and weekends on the own time to get the job done.

Own time, not overtime.

I guess you wanted Obama to invade Libya & Syria & likely Egypt to get us more entangled in that region. You know. like your hero Bush did leading from in front to invade Iraq. And really, not the Obama went to bed in the middle of the afternoon Benghazi crap. You people really are dumber than sh*t.

As for race, maybe dead black kids deserve more than an "Oh well" from the local police.

Black Alternate Juror For Zimmerman Trial: "I Supported The Verdict"
http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2013/0...
It's the culture
You see the word BLACK anywhere and that's all you see, floDUH: "E54 was the next prospective juror, described as a white male probably in his 50s, and a “dead ringer for Oliver Stone.” He recalled Zimmerman phoning the police to report a suspicious person. He also recalled that there was a later 911 call. E54 appeared to be by far the best informed juror of the day. He knew that Zimmerman had not been arrested right away, and that he was eventually charged with second degree murder. He also knew about the protests at the time, but says he “lost interest in it.” He expressed wonder at why there were protests when the police apparently though there was no reason to even charge Zimmerman, and assumed that new evidence must have been developed which led to Zimmerman’s later arrest. He said he thought about joining a protest because of Zimmermans’ arrest.[Editorial comment: No jury for you!] "

myth you should believe: liberals don't own guns.
Don't you mean radical conservatives with a medieval mentality of elite nobles ruling over a peasant class and ally themselves with loons that hold women in slavery and mutilate their genetalia and strap bombs to their children and hide behind their wives who call themselves "liberals" and "progressives" don't own guns?

We are well aware that you frauds own guns. Just look at Chicago, just for one example.

The US would be 4th from the bottom of the list of countries in the world with respect to murder rate if we didn't include the cities of Chicago, Washington, New York and New Orleans.

Oh, yeah. We know all about so-called "liberals" owning guns. Just look in the morgues any Monday morning.
