I don't understand how anyone can be so confused about this verdict. Witnesses testified to the fact that GZ shot TM after being punched in the face and having his head slammed into the ground several times. Luckily, GZ had a weapon and was able to defend himself. That's exactly what anyone should do when they're being attacked.

The idea is to be tried by a jury of one's peers.
Were any of these women on the jury a Zimmerman
peer?
Better yet, were any of them peers of Trayvon, a black kid?
Zimmerman was on trial, but in a way so was Trayvon Martin. Can a black kid get justice in any court
in the U.S. if there are only white people, or a
majority of white people on the jury?
My advice to Zimmerman is for him to watch his
back. Someone may yet try for real justice.
Zimmerman is a FREE, INNOCENT man.

Deal with it.

now excuse me while I GLOAT.

There is no justice in America if a jury can come to this conclusion. This is a license to kill anyone any time. It is now OK to kill anyone you don't like. Just attack them, then stand your ground and shoot them if they don't do everything you say.

This trial was rigged. It sets the precedent that killing is now legal.

Six rational decent human beings got a look at all the evidence a bunch of amped up prosecutors could find, and came to the conclusion that George Zimmerman was lawfully defending himself from a violent thug.

The real stinkers are those advocating this innocent man be murdered; they are no better than street thugs and terrorists.

Zimmerman should sue the state of Florida for malicious prosecution.

Justice was SERVED. Any who harm Zimmerman should be hunted down like Osama bin Laden.

WARNING; Do not post here to this poster, he's from Blue Ridge GA,(Georgia), that's North Central and eastern Georgia, KKK territory, NO BLACKS in these areas.

You cannot let these racist assholes know what you're thinking, we now get the message in florida, Now we need to respond in silence!

Funny how no Blacks were on the jury; But very obvious that jury was pressured and very afraid for their JOBS and their neighbors.

Now I wonder will they let that white asshole go who shot and killed the Black unarmed teenager at a Jacksonville florida gas station for playing his car radio too loud?

When I say in silence I mean become discreet like other races such as the Amish, Koreans, Indians, the Chinese, Italians, they stay off these race baiting web-sites and definitely OUT OF THE MEDIA.

Trust me; they see every word you post and it's all stored in a huge nationwide data base.

REALLY? REALLY? REALLY? What kind of 17 year who is brought up right, who has done nothing wrong, who has nothing to hide, and is confronted by a person who is serving as someone who is there to keep the area he is walking in safe, react the way he did ultimately giving GZ a beat down? GZ did what he could to get him off and is happend to be a gun shot. Had TM just cooperated, answered his questions, he would have been on his way. Huge victory for the 2nd ammendment and as far as I am concerned it is one less thug on the street

I was shocked to see some non-African-Americans join African-Americans in protesting the jury's decision.

Don't those non-African-Americans realize that someday they (or their loved ones) could easily become the victims of some horrific African-American on non-African-American crime?

We have to except that the DUMB A$$ Prosecution bonehead lawyers "BLEW THE TRIAL"......They blew it because they were weak and didn't get in the juries face AND TELL THEM WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED.

INSTEAD THEY LEFT IT UP TO THE JURY TO DECIDE WHAT HAPPEN..........BIG MISTAKE,(morons).

What really pisses me off; they never mentioned the fact that zimmerhead NEVER TESTIFIED UNDER OATH.

I only hope the next Katrina hits the right state next time!!!

I'm done, we'll see you after the "DRONE STRIKES" if you're still here.
