The taxpayers in Florida are owed an apology by the government. This was self defense all along!

If Obama had a son, "he would be just like Trayvon."

Who do you think said that? Who inserted themselves into the case along with Political thugs Jackson and Sharpton at the very beginning? The office of the president of the United States has been trashed. The attempted political lynching by Corey failed.
Shame of the State of Florida for bringing this case to trial.

Between the Justice Department trying him in federal court to the civil trail where Trayvon’s parents will take every future dime that he thinks he’ll make to him spending the rest of his life not knowing if someone will gun him down the way he did that child George Zimmerman life is as over as Travon’s.
Funny how the right tried to make it seem as though the Black community would riot over a not guilty verdict… when it was social media and peaceful protest that got Zimmerman tried in the first place.

Unfortunately, nobody really proved anything in the last 3 weeks and that's why Zimmerman is not guilty. I do not think we will ever know what happened.
Trayvon Martin was examined closely and he was definitely associated with people and things that portrayed him as the type of person who was into being a "gansta" and not someone who wanted to be looked at as an upstanding young member of society, aspiring to be smart and educated and willing to work hard to better himself.
George Zimmerman was examined closely and he was definitely associated with things that portrayed him as the type of person who was into being a vigilante and wannabe cop and extremely lacking in the ability to make good judgments.
I am still not sure of what happened that night and I was depending on this trial to shed some light on those events.
Both men were in the wrong place at the wrong time, knowingly doing things to make the other feel threatened and in need of defending their lives. In the name of not mistakenly convicting an innocent man, the state didn't come anywhere near proving that Zimmerman murdered Martin rather than killing him in self defense.
The jury had no choice, given the evidence they were provided.

If not, then you are plumb full so horse sh*t.
Like most righties.
A quote from The Atlantic.com Mar.23,2012-"If I had a soon he*d look like Trayvon Martin."...This quote was circulated all over the news media and it was obviously an indication of support for the Martin family and against Zimmerman.obama had no business weighing in on a case having nothing to do with the Federal government.The fact that he did so was and act of prejudice against the Zimmerman defense.Granted obama was asked a question about the case but the proper response would have been to refrain from commenting on a case under investigation.

Not a quote from Obama but his administration did have its fingers in the pie.

On Wednesday, Judicial Watch announced that the Department of Justice had turned over documents in response to a Freedom of Information Act request showing that the Community Relations Service (CRS), a small division of the DOJ, was sent to Sanford, Florida after the Trayvon Martin shooting to help manage rallies and protests.

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.
Obviously you weren't in the courtroom.

Hey Marine Corp Rat, your mantra of honor etc etc is nothing but BS. You are just another racist idiot trying to start a riot. You are a sorry excuse for a marine(I don't believe you were). But that be why the "Marines are looking for a few good men", because they didn't find one in you.

If that's the case i will gladly donate some cash to help him out as will many others.
Nobody made blacks out to riot and loot other then themselves all over twitter, and other social media outlets not to mention the ALREADY attacks that have happened in Trayvon's name against whites.
What got Zimmerman tried was pandering to the Pussycat Panthers and Al Sharpton and that's what happens when you seek blind justice.
Now run along Fake Marine and put your Black Panther field commander costume on and play war down at the basketball hoop.

<quoted text>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...
Why didn't you testify to that for the prosecution?

Zimmerman found not guilty in shooting death of Trayvon Martin.... that's all that matters.

Funny how you get your underoos in a twist over someone Obama said looked like the son he doesn't have yet not one freaking word for the 67 people shot in Obama's home town last weekend, 11 of which were murdered blacks.

Funny how the left never mentions the murders, shootings, rapes and muggings that occur in their own back yards.

None of this had a damn thing to do about Trayvon, this was nothing more than a radical leftist President fanning the flames of racial hatred to rile up black people.
When was the last time you heard Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson march and threaten to riot over any of the other 10,000 blacks killed by OTHER blacks every year?
When was the last time you heard from them about the massive amount of black on white crime?
You haven't and you never will because there isn't a payday for them in it.
Obama, his criminal attorney general Eric Holder, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and the wanna-be race warriors soldiers AKA The Pussycat Panthers are a joke.

In 2012 there were more Americans killed in Chicago (540) than in Afghanistan (301) because of the lefts' idiotic gun bans.
