George Zimmerman Verdict: Not Guilty

The 'take away' has always been for me was that a trial was merited. Not pleased about no conviction on least a manslaughter charge, but it is what it is. Our imperfect justice system is rendered by imperfect humans from the each side of case; and the investigators, witnesses, juries, and bench justices.

One of the prices (and monetary costs) of freedom and our way of life is our system of justice as devised by humans; not just military defense (and losses from same) of freedom and way of life.

Upcoming in Florida jurisprudence is this case:

As in Casey Anthony and Zimmerman trials, will the state prosecution processes finally get something right?

Nothing is wrong. They listened to the evidence and didn't make a decision based on emotion. Would you be happier if Zimmerman had been murdered?

Ah but what if the "kid" was four inches taller than you?

What if the kid could fight and you could not?

And let's at what if you were out of shape and the kid was very fit?

You can't look at yourself and say you would not have much trouble subduing a kid without a gun, you have to look at the people involved and the evidence. The evidence supported Zimmerman's story. There was no evidence that he physically attacked Martin, there is plenty of evidence that Martin attacked him. The gunshot wound matched Zimmerman's description of events, that of Martin being on top of him. An eyewitness saw Martin on top of Zimmerman.

This whole trial was politically motivated and if there was any criminal it was the female DA of that county.

Unfortunately IMO. Zimmerman provoked this... He had a history of aggressive street watch tactics on folks he didn't think belonged there.... He wasn't hired.... He took this role himself....people say GZ was defending himself .... Well so was Martin... We'll never get the 100% truth... But a 17 yr old is dead with a gunshot wound.... and the other will spend the rest of his life poor paying off his legal fees... Stop the racial profiling in this country...
Don't you love the way NBC edited the 911 tape to make it look like it was about race. Calling Zimmerman a white Hispanic must mean Obama is a white black:)

That is the next case to go to trail. Zimmerman is suing NBC for that piece of work, and rightly so.

I hope he wins big time. I fear for Zimmerman's life now. I heard there were riots in Oakland? Cameras in the court room are a bad idea.

Black woman gets 20 years for firing a warning shot to scare off her physically abusive husband. This POS gets away with murder.

The U.S. is a cesspool.

Lol not just a field interview. Miami nice. The cops could have removed him from the neighborhood and taken him back to his fathers house where he belonged instead of him ending up at the morgue. That's all I was saying.

Victoria1. Exactly!! Race matters when your in trouble and it should not be a factor. What is the case with the lady getting 20 yrs for warning shot I would love to research that. What law was even broken by firing a warning shot that warrants a twenty year sentence.

Trayvon had every right to be in that neighborhood, to my knowledge there was no curfew in effect. George Zimmerman was given NO right to exit his vehicle, in his duty as 'watching the neighborhood, and/or approach Trayvon.

Many times the best attorneys win. The state did not put on an effective convincing case Right or wrong, unfortunately that is what many verdicts come down to.

I can't help but wonder what the verdict would have been had Trayvon Martin wrestled the gun away from Zimmerman...shot and killed him, all in self defense, mind you...Would 17 year old Tryvon Martin be found 'not guilty'?

Does anyone actually believe that young Trayvon Martin was NOT in fear for his life...under Florida law...did HE not have the same right to defend himself?

Zimmerman was instructed to stay in his vehicle....he didn't and Trayvon Martin is dead.

There are facts...and there is the truth. When will we EVER learn.
