Great job by the defense. I glad that the jury was not pressured by a race verdict. Happy trails to GZ.

There is no justice in America if a jury can come to this conclusion. This is a license to kill anyone any time. It is now OK to kill anyone you don't like. Just attack them, then stand your ground and shoot them if they don't do everything you say.

This trial was rigged. It sets the precedent that killing is now legal.

To legally kill in the US didn't start with this case. Its been going on since the country was founded, from the trail of tears, to OJ Simpson, to the death penalty, to Vietnam, to Obama's drone wars. Are you upset because someone you don't like got away with murder?

The price tag was probably not as much as when Obama and Wall Street bought the White House. Its unbelievable that in this day and age, that people think that only right wingers fall prey to money. Its all money grubbing Americans. From the military industrial complex to Hollywood stars, to everyday government subsidized citizens. But just remember, China, like a US Bank going after a homeowner, will want its money.

I am certain there are many many people in ethnic neighborhoods that changed over and who lived in cities that can give you pretty god descriptions of maniacs in racial crimes. Just not broadcast to loud or loud enough.

The idea is to be tried by a jury of one's peers.
Were any of these women on the jury a Zimmerman
peer?

Better yet, were any of them peers of Trayvon, a black kid?

Zimmerman was on trial, but in a way so was Trayvon Martin. Can a black kid get justice in any court
in the U.S. if there are only white people, or a
majority of white people on the jury?

My advice to Zimmerman is for him to watch his
back. Someone may yet try for real justice.

My family has enough sense not to be walking around a neighbor up to no good in the middle of the night. I raised my children to respect the law and do what is right. This 17 year old need much guidance from his parents, who really didn't seem to care what he did. It's not illegal to care a firearm in FL, especially since there are so many criminals there, that would rob you blind. Good job by the jury. He was arrested, tried, and found not guilty! Deal with it!

funny coming from someone who lives in city with the toughest gun laws and the worst gun violence. Another minion who believes the government, the same government that provides arms to those toppling their own governments, will protect them.
The very land you stand on and the very fruits of your so called freedoms were bought by guns. Hypocrite.

No suprises there. The poorly written Florida "stand your ground" laws allows people to go after people with a gun and kill them simply because they "feel threatened" which is what Zimmerman did.

He went with a gun chasing after a teenage boy. Trayvon got scared and defended himself from Zimmerman. Zimmerman shot him. Florida protects the aggressor, Zimmerman.

Good luck Florida when the streets run red with blood because of your poorly written statute.

Zimmerman will walk a free man. But if he "felt threatened" before with Trayvon...well now he is going to feel threatened even more. And will kill more people and be protected under the poorly written "stand your ground" law of Florida.

I feel sorry for him and Trayvon. The Florida statute and their lawmakers have ruined both of their lives.

The only evidence for the initial attack pointed to Martin as the attacker. Physically attacking someone tends to leave evidence on the attackers hands. No bruises or cuts to Zimmerman's hand or fingers and obvious wounds from Martin's attack on him.

The evidence said that Zimmerman was innocent and the jury listened.

This was not a "stand your ground" case.

Again, you need evidence to back up your contention. Are you saying that fit tall young Martin could not have outrun Zimmerman?

Take a chill pill and look at the evidence without your obvious prejudice.

Anyone who walks in a bad neighborhood, and cold-cocks a stranger and bangs his head on the sidewalk should expect to get shot. We had 17 year-olds getting killed in Nam, and they weren't called children. The racists are without question the blacks in this situation.

you are right, it was not a stand your ground case. Zimmerman instigated the confrontation, then when he started to lose the fight, pulled his gun and shot the kid.

not self-defense, just a sore loser...
