P.S. Every bit of evidence, including that presented by the prosecution, supports Mr. Zimmerman's account.
It's hearsay not evidence. It boils down to the guys word who shot the kid that can't say a word. And because some blacks are known to be thugs, Travon must be one to.

No, Trayvon is a thug because his own FB and Twitter pages, his school history and his girlfriend show him to have been a thug. Unfortunately the jury was not permitted to see anything but the girlfriend........that should be enough. Her quotes from the "innocent child" prove him to be not only a thug, but a racist.

So, it's the alive guys word against the dead kids. Convenient.

I wonder how he got all that information about him being "a criminal" from looking at him that night? He must have ESP or something.

He didn't, nor does he claim to have gotten that information. He saw a stranger, loitering at night, in the rain, behaving suspiciously. It was only when the thug Trayvon Martin attacked him and tried to kill him that his suspicions were proven. The now-dead thug proved that Mr. Zimmerman's observations were 100% correct, right down to him being on drugs. Perhaps he's just a better observer than those who think a guy loitering in a neighborhood at night in the rain is normal, huh?

And an example of justice. No matter what happens to Mr. Zimmerman, Trayvon Martin got his just punishment for the crime he committed-attempted murder-the night he was shot dead. Society lost nothing when Trayvon Martin took his last breath.

You have to feel wonderful about yourself after that statement.

Typical of the behavior of the depraved 60s 70s era "freedom riders" who went South to stir up the Africans and who now want to use hard earned taxpayer money to "cure" their ingrained misogynistic behavior:

On this day he MAY have been "just walking".......until he jumped a man and tried to kill him for looking at him. The relevance of his true character is that it shows that he was NOT just an "innocent teen". It shows that he was indeed the kind of person who WOULD jump on a stranger for doing nothing more than looking at him. It should have been allowed in. Pretending that he was an "innocent teen" does not give the jury all the information that they need to understand what happened that night.

Her son is nothing like MY sons. My sons don't use drugs, they're not vandals, thieves, or violent animals. No, Sybrina, your son is YOUR son, and his fate is YOUR fault.

That statement has absolutely nothing to do with how I feel about myself. That statement is a simple truth. I have no sentimentality about Trayvon Martin just because he was 17 years old. Those who do are not living in the real world. Trayvon Martin's age is absolutely irrelevant in this case. What is relevant is that he was a violent animal who attacked and tried to kill someone, forcing that person to defend himself with lethal force. My statement was fact. The death of Trayvon Martin was a positive to society, as is the death of any violent animal.

She was losing control over him....Still can't believe the judge would'nt allow his facebook and text's...that actually he bragged about how much he liked fighting and was close to buying a gun....kinda relevant, eh?....

Should this go the wrong way with the jury, the failure of the judge to allow VERY relevant information about Trayvon Martin into the trial will be the perfect grounds for appeal.

I don't think we will be waiting much longer on
how this is going to go.

This will be a damned if you do, damned if you don't, for this jury.

I just hope the jury members are not harassed or
threatened after this is over.

I still don't have an opinion and will wait on
the verdict.
