It doesn't matter how that juror feels. The trial was about facts, and the fact is Trayvon attacked a man with a gun, and got himself shot dead. Those are facts.
lies aren't facts...no evidence but zimmerman's uncorroborated testimony that trayvon ever 'attacked' him...

most likely trayvon defended himself and was murdered

No one walked up and shot Trayvon while walking home. Trayvon did a crime, and violently attacked a man (assault and battery) while in possession of 2/3rds of the ingredients for "LEAN" or "Purple Drank" based on cough medicine containing codeine/dextromethorphan.

America watched the trial, and saw the truth.

Demarquis Elikins a black 17 year old shot an innocent 13 month old baby in the face in Georgia, and not a word of civil rights from Obama, Jackson, Sharpton, Holder….

two black teens beat Autumn Pasquale (12 year old white girl) to death, and not a word from the race hustlers

In 2009 less than ten black women were raped by white men nationally, but over 36,000 white women were raped by black men nationally, and not a word.

There is a national epidemic of black males killing black males. That is a fact. There is not an epidemic of white of Hispanic males killing blacks.

1. Blacks commit violent crimes four to eight times the white rate. Hispanic commit violent crimes at approximately three times the white rate, and Asians at one half to three quarters the white rate.

2. Blacks are as much more violent than whites (four to eight times) as men are more violent than women.

3. Of the approximately 1,700,000 interracial crimes of violence involving blacks and whites, 90 percent are committed by blacks against whites. Blacks are 50 times more likely than whites to commit individual acts of interracial violence. They are up to 250 times more likely than whites to engage in multiple-offender or group interracial violence.

4. There is more black-on-white than black-on-black violent crime. Fifty-six percent of violent crimes committed by blacks have white victims. Only two to three percent of violent crimes committed by whites have black victims.

5. Blacks are twice as likely to commit hate crimes.

So facts determined to be true in a court of law and facts contained in the official national crime statistics are "racist crapola"?

Sounds like you need to put the "racial-hate crack-pipe" down. You've obviously OD'd.

Trayvon never had a chance, he was wrongfully profiled by killerman, while walking home from a store with skittles and a Arizona ice tea. The Florida prosecution team should have been killerman defense team. All the witnesses could have been for the defense, one witness that could have help Trayvon was never questioned, or brought to testfy, that was the store clerk, why wasn't he a witness, he was the last person to see Trayvon before he was murdered. They druged tested him, and ran a criminal check on Trayvon, why didn't they do a drug test on killerman, who also, had a criminal past. Now, the so call experts not knowning anything about Trayvon, are saying he bought the skittles and ice tea to make something to make him high, when his dad girldfriend son testified, he asked Trayvon to bring him the skittles. There was no justice for Trayvon. They just took killerman's words. What gated community with a neighorhood watch in a mostly white area going to have 40 to 50 suspicious black young males there?

There were no 'facts' determined as true in the trial.

The jury just weighed the evidence and testimonies.

Brutal teens 'kill and try to dismember' two men in trap at their home and are arrested as they play video games near the bodies

BRUNSWICK, Ga.(AP)— The mother of a baby gunned down in his stroller says she has no doubt a teenage suspect jailed in the slaying is the man who killed her 13-month-old son, but family members say he wasn't anywhere near the scene.

"That's definitely him," Sherry West said when she saw the jail mugshot of 17-year-old De'Marquise Elkins, who is charged as an adult with first-degree murder. Police also arrested a 14-year-old who has not been identified because he's a minor.

By: AnneClaire Stapleton, CNN
(CNN)--[Breaking news update, 2:51 p.m.]
The six victims of an apartment complex shooting in Hialeah, Florida, were two building managers who arrived at the shooter's residence; a husband, wife and their 17-year-old daughter in their apartment; and a man who had just arrived in the parking lot, said Carl Zogby, spokesman for the Hialeah police department. The suspected gunman, identified as Pedro Vargas, was killed by a SWAT team responding to the shooting.

Actually Trayvon went to the store and bought a blunt from three other hooded individuals, that was after he bought the watermelon Arizona ice tea, and he was wearing a button on his hoodie of his career criminal cousin. I guess he idolized his "gangsta" dead cousin, what a role model to look up to. Now even though he had been suspended three times from school he seemed to be having an extended vacation instead of being restricted, making runs to the store to buy junk food and blunts, texting for hours on end and bragging about being a gangsta, player, ass whiper, and all around bad MF'er. Taking photos of himself holding a gun, marijuana plants growing in a vase, posing gangsta style, etc..

A little operant conditioning might have gone a long way for Trayvon Martin, positive reinforcement for good behavior and negative punishment for detrimental behavior should have been applied long before his encounter with Zimmerman.

The button Trayvon Martins was wearing on his hoodie the day he died was of his career criminal cousin Cory Craig Johnson who had a rap sheet a mile long including assault, illegal possession of a concealed firearm,battery, etc..

Was Trayvons parents OK with him idolizing his cousin, and if so i would like to know that rationalization.

It's all a faked superficial guise of concern that racist have gone wild killing blacks when the truth is black homicide victims 95 % of the time are killed by other blacks. Just look up the justice department and FBI statistics on black homicides in America. There was over 7,000 blacks killed by other blacks from the time Trayvon Martin died and Zimmerman was found not guilty, yet that is not a legitimate concern with black leaders, however dangerous white racist are killing our blacks!

They took a person of half peruvian descent, with a grandmother who was (Afro- Peruvian) and made that person into a white racist killer, and most American bought it hook, line and sinker, or at least just reluctantly went along with it.

It seems that the facts are not on your side. Stop letting the Lib/Prog Democrats lead black people to slaughter. These are the same people that enacted Jim Crow, the KKK, and Planned Parenthood (eugenics to destroy the black population, now updated to include both white & black poor).

President Lyndon B. Johnson(D) said of the "Great Society" programs' ability to make poor and minority people hopelessly dependent and helpless; "I'll have these n****rs voting Democrat for the next 200 years!"

A 14-year-old boy remained in critical condition Friday after being shot in the head by a homeowner who said he thought the teen was trying to break into his house. But police said the teen was unarmed and did not pose an "imminent threat" when he was shot and have charged the owner with attempted second-degree murder.

Police said the teen was near Landry's vehicle when he was shot about 2 a.m. Landry's friends said the vehicle was in the driveway behind a gate just a few feet from the house's backdoor.
