I would suggest that they stick to football as they have no regard for our jury system.How much time did they devote to following the evidence presented?
Stick to football as you are out of your league.

The jury thought ‘not guilty’ apparently based on that even though GZ followed and stopped TV, and against the advice from the police, TV over-reacted according to the forensic evidence, and there was doubt among the jury that that GZ was not defending himself. Legally given that, they were required to declare GZ ‘not guilty’. There were no marks indicating Trayvon had been physically attacked before being shot (though GZ was the one who started the confrontation. It was apparent GZ had been punched and was physically harmed and was apparent he may have had to defend himself from what he may have thought was imminent danger. Personally I don’t know if GZ didn’t injure himself to make it appear he was defending himself. But GZ started the chain of events that led to TV's death. Maybe GZ could have avoided shooting his gun, but no. He shot him close range in the heart. Now I can't help looking at it from Trayvon's point of view. He did not ask for this. This ain't fair. If I were him, I might have thought GZ was possibly a pervert impersonating someone in authority, and I might also have put up a fight. I don’t mean to incriminate anyone falsely but growing up in NYC, most of the pedophiles and flashers that approached me as a young boy were Hispanic and over 20 (that is 7 out of 8 of them – one was caucasian). It may be cultural. Most of the muggers were black, except only 2 times I was mugged by white gangs and only once, and almost killed by one Hispanic gang. But where were Trayvon's rights to lawfully pursue life, liberty and happiness? I understand and accept this verdict only on a technical basis, with my mind but not my heart. Considering the whole chain of events, TV was the victim. But I also feel like no one except GZ will know what really went down. Who do we need to hire to protect us now from armed overzealous security guards who want to play cops and robbers with real live ammo? In poor taste GZ smiled at the verdict, and in perhaps worse taste will pack using the same gun he killed TV with, allegedly to protect himself, but from whom, all the other innocent unarmed teenagers going home through that same gated community at night? The primary purpose of the justice system should be to protect the innocent, but I feel less protected with this verdict. I now need to fear security guards? This isn’t justice.
