Not many think he can be found guilty of 2nd degree murder.

2nd? Wouldn't 3rd make more sense? Or even involuntary manslaughter? Well whatever. At least there's gonna be a trial.

Are people really still arguing over this guy? This might be even more ridiculous than the O.J. Simpson thing? And the chances of an 2nd degree murder charge sticking to this guy is very slim. It's not like he fully intended for any of that to happen.

At least a jury will decide it. "Many" agreed with letting him go home with his gun with no charges. What a joke.

It's debateable. Armed while chasing a guy you think is up to no good. What did he intend to happen?

In many cases that assumption would be made, but simply carrying a weapon probably isn't easily linked to intent in a state where people are licensed to carry concealed weapons. People could have a handgun with them almost all the time... doesn't necessarily mean they actually intend to shoot someone with it. He chased down a guy he thought was up to some trouble... Dude thought he was being followed by a suspicious character... both felt threatened, and one of them just happened to have a licensed weapon on him. Doesn't change the fact that he killed the guy... but it makes intent rather debatable...

PERSONALLY, I don't see why anyone would carry a gun around unless they think they may need to use it... but people do it without thinking like that.

Zimmerman as far as can be researched has a good moral background.
Martin on the other hand was suspended from school, smoked weed was found with burglary tools and woman's jewelry not to mention seemed to be rather fond of getting into fights.

As far as can be told Martin ran from Zimmerman. Then doubled back on him as he walked towards his car. He broke Zimmerman's nose and was slamming his head into the sidewalk when shot.

Pretty good for a guy able to get to his holstered gun sitting on his right buttock all while having his head bashed into the ground.

Except for that time Zimmerman beat up his girlfriend and assaulted an officer he's an upstanding citizen.
