At this stage, verdict doesn't matter one way or the other. State wins: Zimmerman appeals. Zimmerman wins: State retries case on other grounds. Hung jury: State retries case. Guaranteed to drag on for years.

Despite Zimmerman being a busy-body playing pretend-cop, I do think he shot Martin in self-defense. And, if Trayvon wasn't up to no good, why the hell did he keep running from Zimmerman??? I think Trayvon was acting like a typical punk-a$$ teenager & lost his life as a result...it's tragic.

Martin was a POS who had marijuana in his system, burglary tools, and a criminal record. He got in the right neighborhood and got dead.

My opinion may not be popular but here goes...Zimmerman was a power hungry cop wannabe who ignored orders to stand down, got in over his head with a young man who felt threatened and stood his ground and as a result, Zimmerman felt he had to shoot to defend himself. Bur for Zimmerman's actions, Trayvon would have gone home, eaten his Skittles & we'd never have heard about him. sorry if that offends anybody, but that's my opinion & i stand on it.

If they don't convict Zimmerman the blacks will burn down the town, so the court has no choice as usual.

As sad as this sounds, you are probably right.

You are not alone in your thought! I agree 100%. Zimmerman NEVER should have gotten out of his vehicle. And for the poster above... He was in the RIGHT neighborhood!!! Walking home to his father's house. This young man was 17 years old. Not perfect. But, by no means, a menace. I have a child that is almost 17. I can not imagine having to bury my child at all, much less under these circumstances.

If they start burning the town down, they'll be a lot more dead black people. As there should have been in California.

I am puzzled as to how this was turned into a racial issue and suddenly hit headlines. Murders happen everyday that aren't publicized, even cases where someone is killed in questionable self defense. Regardless if Zimmerman is found guilty or innocent, we all lose because people like Al Sharpton and the likes were able to throw the race card and make headlines out of the case.

Trayvon wanted to be gangsta and he got what all gangstas eventually get, a bullet. Zimmerman probably saved at least 2 lives that night by taking out the trash.

Technically, he may have been in the "right neighborhood," but he didn't live there. He was visiting his father for the first time, because he was suspended from school. Therefore he was a stranger in that neighborhood to the watch captain. All that he had to do was tell Zimmerman who he was or why he was there. He apparently decided to go ghetto instead.
