Here's a hint for you.
ALL the jurors found Zimmerman not guilty.
That's all anyone needs to say in his defense.
All of the Jurors were white women who live in a state so racially divided that they refused to acknowledge that race played any role in the wrongful death af a 17 year old boy.

That is why the federal government has got to finish up it's investigation and file federal charges against Zimmerman for violating Travon Martin's civil rights.

When a federal court seats a jury, there will be jurors who oppose concealed carry laws, there will be jurors who oppose stand your ground laws and there will be jurors who are opposed to racial profiling. A jury not embedded in the mindset of the bible belt white power beliefs of the deep south.

The federal court will give the Martin family attorney a much better jury and Zimmerman will not get away with murder like de did in that racially divided state of Florida.

You just don't get it. Florida is such an azzbackwards State that they deemed it OK to stalk Black people kill them and them get away with it by claiming self defense.
Every black person should arm themselves and be the one claiming self defense.
I do get it about Florida and the rest of the southern states, and what happened to Martin and the Zimmerman verdict is just "business as usual" in the red states. I'm for letting the FBI do their thing and giving them the time to put together an air-tight case for the DOJ prosecutor to nail Zimmerman's ass in federal court. Be patient. They'll get him.

It will never go to Federal Court -- it's a political hot football and there is a Senate election next year. You don't piss off Florida in an election year -- that's campaigning 101.

Florida votes for Florida's representatives and Florida's representatives, except for Bill Nelson in the senate and Corrine Brown in the house, are Republican so it's alright to piss on Florida this election year. It's not like people as stupid as Floridians are going to vote democrat all of a sudden.

No, it was a racially mixed jury.

Good luck with those fed CR charges; they have to prove racial motivation on Zim's part.

I hope you continue to pin your hopes on a federal trial.

I hope you keep up with the Zimmerman Witch Hunt.

It will destroy the democrat party.

Your ignorance is astounding.

Alcee Hastings was impeached and expelled from the federal bench for corruption during the Clinton admistration, by a democrat controlled congress.

Ever since then he has been re-elected to the house by the democrats of south Florida.

He's got a guilty conscious, dozens of federal agents investigating him, a federal civil rights suit and a civil wrongful death suit hanging over his head, and he's so terrified of public opinion he's hiding out in a motel room somewhere begging for money on the internet.

Is that what you call "clear", bubba?

<quoted text>The jurors are saying and so are many legal experts that the number one reason for the not guilty verdict was that the prosecution did not prove it's case. Many legal experts beleive it was because of adding manslaughter so late in the game- the jury felt that the prosecution was desperate. In out system the prosecution must prove guilt - the defendant does not not prove innocence. Just ask OJ about his murder trial.
Good point of course, but that is not what the jurors are saying now.

The Juror thought Mr Zimmerman was guilty. She had no legal proof, she just hated to let him off. If she knew he was not innocent she was obligated to hang that jury, and go for another trial. She's a goofy woman who should never serve on a jury, because she has no common sense, and cannot determine the law,

It is truly stunning to watch.

The "whoopassing" the Lynch Zimmerman vigilante scofflaw degenerates are getting daily here.

I had no idea they hated hispanics so much.

I think they enjoy being slapped around too.

Their desire to see an innocent man lynched is like the KKK, or the SS guards in a Nazi Deathcamp.

So have Travon;s parents filed civil suit against Zimmerman yet? Why not? How abut Holder has he filed suit against Zimmerman? Why not? Tribesmen blowing smoke.

I'm willing to bet that there will be no federal case brought against Zimmerman for civil rights violations because there's absolutely no evidence to support the theory that TM's race had anything at all to do with what happened. Plus, Treyvon was a trouble making pot smoker who thought it was cool to skip school and his character would be exposed during that trial. That's also why his parents haven't filed suit and probably won't.

The media has been sympathetic towards Treyvon to the point of ignoring the evidence of what truly happened in order to profit as much as possible off of this situation. A civil suit would allow evidence of TM's character and the media would quickly turn on TM and his family once evidence was presented that showed Treyvon for the thug he really was.

<quoted text>The facts are Zimmerman had no business or authority to stalk, harass or shoot a black kid. The facts are the forensic evidence and ME's reports do not support Zimmerman's statement to the police claiming that Martin jumped him, knocked him to the ground, punched him the face "20 or 30 times", and slammed his head against the concrete repeatedly. The facts are Zimmerman's clothes didn't have any mud, dirt, or debris on them and the EMT reports says Zimmerman had a minor scratch on his nose and a small cut on the back of his head with only minor superficial bleeding. The facts don't support Zimmerman's ridiculous claim of self-defense against a black kid with no history of aggressive or violent behavior. The facts are Zimmerman had an extensive history of aggressive and violent behavior involving attacking women and cops plus court ordered anger management classes.

The FBI is still investigating Zimmerman and hasn't cleared him of anything.

The case is open and ongoing, bubba....
FBI has cleared him. Martin does have history of violence, drugs, and theft. Zims clothes did have debris and grass stains. Zim had broken nose two black eyes and lacerations. Wow you are an idiot. You don't know any facts of the case and evidently didn't watch the trial. What a joke you are. Still stuck on stupid. NOT GUILTY WAS THE VERDICT. THERE WILL BE NO CIVIL ROGHTS CASE. IT'S OVER DIMWIT.

There will be no Federal case. Feds already cleared Zimmerman of racial bias. Suck it up and move on. It's over.

Ha ha ha. Be patient because it isn't going to happen. Lol. FBI already cleared him of being a racist. That's why the Judge at trial said the prosecution couldn't use the race card. That card is starting to work less and less.
