Wouldn't expect anything less from you, George. You're an angry, bitter impotent man who is incapable of respect. I truly do feel sorry for you for having so much hate in your heart.

I disagree. If you look at the evidence that was presented, there was reasonable doubt. They were asked to decide a sentence based on the evidence and if there was ANY reasonable doubt, they could not convict him. It's just like Henry Fonda in "12 Angry Men." He kept saying, "But isn't it possible..." Well, the evidence in this specific case showed that it was possible. I don't think it was likely and I put the fault on Zimmerman, but according to our legal system, the jury made the right decision. The prosecution failed to provide evidence that proved Zimmerman was guilty beyond the shadow of a doubt.

Figures.
Here's the link she provides in her piece. Are you telling us that Eric Holder's DOJ is wrong?

Next.
The link I provided was a self-defense case. Similar to the Zimmerman case except the person defending himself was black. It also resulted in an acquittal, which I also agree with.

Under the laws of the State of Florida, it WAS.

Wrong person? Zimmerman was a coward with a gun. A spoiled malcontent with a god complex that ended a child's life for nothing other than racist suspicion.
Race wasn't brought up until he was specifically asked by the police. Also, you can't prove that Zimmerman didn't do EXACTLY what he was told to do. What do you think "let us know if he does anything" means?

You're definitely on the left side of the Bell Curve.

I sincerely hope George gets his settlement against the State of Florida to help with his legal costs. That's what you get for going on a witch hunt. The taxpayers must be thrilled with their laws.

How do you people ever expect to make anything of yourselves if the state pays for your defense? Shiftless and lazy, no-account adds nothing to society. Feh.
How would you feel if you were wrongfully dragged through the mud and had that mountain of legal fees? They, the citizens of Florida, should be kvetching that the state paid the money to bring him to trial. The State of Florida enacted these laws, go ahead and b-i-tch about that too.

Reflect on Arizona law and the Jodi Arias case, it would cost a poopload less to just sentence her to life without parole.

If you don't break the law, you don't have to worry about it; if you are acquitted, states better be prepared to pay for a bogus case without the free person footing the bill.

Please...If it was a teenage white guy, there would have been no case. Zimmerman would have offered him a ride home, for fk sakes.

I've been black a long time...His mother needs to say that to keep the peace. I know better than that. If Zimmerman had handled it a different way, that might be true, but Zimmerman did what he did because he had preconceived notions about Martin. Lets not play games here.
