President Barack Obama urged Americans to keep calm in the wake of Saturday's jury verdict finding George Zimmerman not guilty of charges associated with the controversial shooting death of black teen Trayvon Martin.

"I know this case has elicited strong passions. And in the wake of the verdict, I know those passions may be running even higher," Obama said Sunday in a statement. "But we are a nation of laws, and a jury has spoken. I now ask every American to respect the call for calm reflection from two parents who lost their young son."

A variety of cities have experienced minor protests following the verdict in the Zimmerman case, which a jury read on Sunday. Zimmerman faced charges of second-degree murder in the Feb. 26, 2012 shooting death of Martin. A jury found him not guilty on that charge, but also the lesser charge of manslaughter — an option available to the jury.

The investigation and prosecution of Zimmerman developed into a national flashpoint for race relations in the United States. Nodding to that fact, Obama commented amid the initial investigation of the shooting, saying that if he had a son, "he'd look like Trayvon."

Obama urged Americans to ask themselves tough questions about the incident and subsequent verdict to pay tribute to the slain teenager.

Obama said: "And as we do, we should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to widen the circle of compassion and understanding in our own communities. We should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to stem the tide of gun violence that claims too many lives across this country on a daily basis. We should ask ourselves, as individuals and as a society, how we can prevent future tragedies like this. As citizens, that’s a job for all of us. That’s the way to honor Trayvon Martin."

George Zimmerman has sued NBC Universal for defamation. The company strongly denies the allegation.

A person is black, and guilty, the black communities still supports them.
What is wrong with this picture?
Now the black community is calling for more actions...doesn't the verdict mean anything?
This doesn't only apply to this case, but most cases.
They can commit a murder, and their family will always say he is such a good boy and would never do that.
Why can't people see that this kid had questionable character traits, and threatened
Z's life.......beat on him.
I'm happy he went free. I'm sorry for the parents who lost a son.

His call to curb gun violence.
We don't have enough shootings in America. So many Obama voters stealing raping and murdering and so little return or defensive fire.

What a POS. Zimmerman "honored" Trayvon with a bullet that may have saved his own life. Lets honor Zimmerman for trying to do something about crime. Obama is an absolute POS.

Gun control will never work.It does not work in Chicago or D.C.,the worse gun violence places in America.At least 90% of homes around here have no fewer than 5 or 6 guns with at least 2 of them being handguns.Our gun violence records are way lower than Chicago or D.C. A thug will think twice before envading a home here.

Nixon and Obama!

Nixon Calls Manson Guilty; Attorneys Move a Mistrial
By Leopold N. Loeb,
August 4, 1970

President Nixon may have freed Charles Manson-not by an act of executive clemency, but by one of errant stupidity.

Defense attorneys for Manson, Leslie Van Houten, and Susan Atkins-who face charges of murder stemming from the mass killings last August of actress Sharon Tate and six other persons-moved for a mistrial yesterday after learning that Nixon had said that Manson was "guilty, directly or indirectly, of eight murders without reason."

Trial Judge Charles N. Holder denied the motion pending an official version of the Nixon remarks, but a defense attorney said the judge was "alarmed" at the report.

Oops

Late last night, however, Nixon said flatly he did not mean to imply that Manson was guilty.

Nixon made the remarks during an impromptu press briefing at a law enforcement conference in Denver. He criticized the press, saying that it tends to "glorify and to make heroes out of those who engage in criminal activities."

Referring to the Manson case, Nixon said, "here is a man who was guilty, directly or indirectly, of eight murders without reason."

Nixon said that "as far as the coverage was concerned [Manson] appeared to be rather a glamorous figure."

In Los Angeles, defense attorney Paul Fitzgerald told reporters, "If we're going to have the chief executive of this nation categorically or uncategorically speculate on people's guilt, we ought to abandon this court system. Maybe President Nixon in a news conference ought to determine whether these people are guilty."

Pot Calls Kettle

Manson was said to have told his lawyers, "Here's a man who is accused of hundreds of thousands of murders, acousing me of being accused of eight murders."

Although the jury in the Manson trial is kept sequestered in a hotel and denied access to newspaper accounts of the trials, attorneys expressed concern that they might learn of the President's remarks through visits from relatives.

Immediately after Nixon made the remarks in Denver, Ronald V. Ziegler, Presidential press secretary, called reporters together to "clarify" the President's statement.

Ziegler said that Nixon "failed to use the word 'alleged'" in his statement. "The phrase he used could lead to some misinterpretation," Ziegler added.

Asked if the "clarification" was a retraction of the Nixon statement, Ziegler answered, "I believe I've done that."

Attorney General John N. Mitchell, who was present when Nixon made the statement, said later, "I don't believe the President made the charge or implied one."
