I don't think Zimmerman should be on trial to start with. He wouldn't be, if the state hadn't been hell bent on kissing black a$$. Florida State Attorney Angela Corey, so badly wanted to show she is not racist that she made sure to kiss up to the Martin parents and charge him UNFAIRLY.

The Florida police and AG's office bot agreed that Zimmerman had committed no crime. Obama sent the special prosecutor down to do the charges.

This is a race trial perpetrated by Obama who thought he might be kin to Martin. I don't know why he thought Trayvon was Kenyan.

Every civilized person on the planet knows George Zimmerman is not guilty. I hope he can recover his losses plus Punitive damages in the sum of everything the parents, prosecutor, and Obama has or ever will have.

This trial is a complete and total embarrassment to the entire state of Florida. It clearly shows Florida's Legal System is crap or they would have told the Obama Prosecutor to get the hell out and stood by their ruling.

Nice to see some common sense from a fellow Californian.
The case was manufactured to please the blacks. It's so obvious that there's been a political agenda pushed onto the FL DA.

There are millions of communities that don't have a huge minority population where Mr. Zimmerman will live quite comfortable. He is suing NBC for slander, and I bet he wins there too. He can use the money he gets to start his own Detective agency, or something like it. I can't think of any community that would want a pot smoking thug among them.

If the detective agency doesn't work out. Perhaps creating a card board silhouette of Zimmerman, installed at the entrance/exit of communities.

With a caption that reads "No Ice Tea Drinking,Skittel Eater's or Thugs Permitted on Premises"

Hero defined by Webster Dictionary - any person especially a man, admired for qualities or achievements and regarded as an ideal or model.

That definition pretty much sums up George Zimmerman.

There is so much racism towards Zimmerman. I don't know if he can get a fair trial. Just because you are Hispanic does not mean you are guilty- unless you watch MSNBC.

He will get a fair trial because there should not have been a trial. Most fair minded people understand Zimmerman is being railroaded.

<quoted text> Zimmerman is a cold blooded killer just like Mrs Menna who shot her husband who was a doctor in west Orlando and never went to jail . Mary Winkler in TN shot and killed her husband while he was sleeping and got six months in jail . Somebody is paying off the scumbags in our crooked judicial system . How many crooked cops were screwing Casey Anthony ? One of these dirtbags lied and got fired ..
"Dr." Menna was a butcher and an abuser. His wife did the world a favor when she shot the pig, just as George Zimmerman did the world a favor when he shot the filthy animal Trayvon Martin. Now if your skankpig would just get up the nerve to take your useless ass out.........

Zimmerman didn't use racial slurs just like Ms Jeantal and Martin did-not. It's cultural slang silly.

This is all Monday moring second guessing after watching slow mo replay 1000 times. All this went down in minutes not like the one year investigation or weekS long trial.

All these commentators act like they know what is fact but are stating their opinion. Then the message board rumors has Martin buying drugs that's why he was out so long. So what, it doesn't matter what Martin was doing it matters what went on during the fight. All this well "if" he didn't follow him is nothing but a what if scnerio.

It's fine to state an opinion. I just hope all these professional opinion givers remind their mass media audience that it is exactly that-their opinion and not fact or an implied course of action.

Pray for no riots or confrontations when this is over.

Just don't look at the party in Egypt. By the way, the city of Dar is a beautiful capital of Tanzania, with wonderful modern boulevards that made it a good location for the Rwandan Genocide Trials.
This makes it a useful place for a speech.

There should be riots, lots of riots, and destruction. This is Trayvon's people's understanding of justice. We will have justice for Zimmerman, and we need to see how civilized Trayvon's people are,, they wants the trial, and now they have to face facts.

Zimmerman's best chance is with a jury, since he can't be found guilty if there is cause for any doubt. If they do convict him of second degree murder, that would be a sign that both the black community and the "pink rabbits" have truly gone off their rockers.

Even a manslaughter charge seems ridiculous in this case. I'm siding for GZ on this one, but that in no way means that I like him. I think he's a tool!

Don't hold your breath. Mr. Zimmerman is innocent, and the prosecution's witnesses are proving it every day. The wannabe-murdering pig was shot on the night in question. BANG!!! Bye-bye ThugTray!!! No more thuggery from that beast!
