Prosecuting the case based on evidence would've called for a manslaughter charge, not murder 2 - they were never going to get Zimmerman on that.
However, since he did leave his vehicle, armed, and hunt down Martin before the struggle resulting in Martin's killing, there was evidence to indicate Zimmerman was by no means "innocent."
You missed a good trial.....

The other day Jesse Jackson, philanderer and arch race-baiting con man, came here and puked his smelly guts on the state of Florida.

In a rare display of guts from a Republican, Gov. Rick Scott told Jackson to stick his face where the sun don't shine on a dead goat.

I wrote him off as a GOP wuss after he loosed that nutbag Angela Corey on George Zimmerman.

You'll have my vote in 2014 Rick Scott.

Bravo.

I haven't blamed anything on "the whites," and have no idea why you bring in a completely irrelevant case.

Was it just to blame more crime on black people?

And the defendent was found not guilty of murder 2 or manslaughter. I don't recall him being found guilty or innocent of anything else.

Surely that's all you need? Just extend those two cases out to ALL white people, the way you extend a few black crimes out to ALL black people.

Easy, isn't it?:)

Typically silly and confused Floridian fantasies.

The "guts" belonged to Corey (though her presentation of the case was less than brilliant), the "nutbag" is Governor Crazy Eyes himself, and the "wuss" is the guy who (typically) blames folks like Jesse Jackson for all his state's problems.

That'd be YOU.:)

In early April 2012, Special Prosecutor Angela Corey decided ---not to take the George Zimmerman case to a Grand Jury,---[A person was DENIED his right to a grand jury FIRST mistake] opting for the filing of a Criminal Information which then was presented along with an Affidavit of Probable Cause. The Court found probable cause for the charges.
It turned out, once pre-trial discovery was exchanged, that the affidavit upon which probable cause was found had not disclosed a lot of significant ***exculpatory details. There was no mention of the significant injuries to Zimmerman, or of John Good’s eyewitness account that Martin was on top of Zimmerman hitting him Mixed Martial Arts style. All the Affidavit said on the subject of the physical confrontation was that there was “a struggle.”
The Affidavit identified the voice screaming for help as that of Martin based on an interview with his mother, but did not reveal what we now know, that Martin’s father initially denied it was his son.
The Affidavit also was inaccurate, such as alleging that the 911 operator “instructed Zimmerman not” to follow Martin — a false fact which lives on in the media mythology of the case.
...
Another obsessive rightie view of the case based on right wing political sites and their biased views of the case. How convincing.

For example, the 911 operator said "we don't need you to do that" when Zimmerman said he was pursuing Martin on foot, armed. That's a fact, and the fact that you restate it then claim it to be a "false fact" doesn't change that.

The case is over, you got your dead black kid and your half-white guy acquitted. Give it up, indeed.

AMERICAN LADY, I am a Floridian that would love nothing better than to see our Attorney General go after Angela Corey for her horrid performance in this incident.....Tho, i am almost positive that she was directed from above, but not sure that should be considered......they should charge her as ambitiously as they went for George....see where the chips fall....

ZIMMERMAN PROSECUTOR ANGELA COREY FIRES WHISTLEBLOWER

...fired a whistleblower Friday who revealed that prosecutors had not turned over exculpatory evidence to the defense, the Florida Times-Union reported.

Ben Kruidbos, the information technology director in Corey's office, had testified in a pre-trial hearing about a report he had created regarding text messages and images retrieved from Martin's cellphone. Defense lawyers never received the report from the prosecution, as is required by law.

Prosecuted for Standing Her Ground
by Kirsten Powers Jul 19, 2013 4:45 AM EDT

Florida State Attorney Angela Corey’s overzealous prosecution of a battered woman who sought to defend herself is a gross miscarriage of justice, writes Kirsten Powers.

Angela Corey’s Checkered Past
Her peers describe an M.O. of retaliation and overcharging.
By Ian Tuttle

...

When Corey came in, she cleaned house. Corey fired half of the office’s investigators, two-fifths of its victim advocates, a quarter of its 35 paralegals, and 48 other support staff — more than one-fifth of the office. Then she sent a letter to Florida’s senators demanding that they oppose Shorstein’s pending nomination as a U.S. attorney.“I told them he should not hold a position of authority in his community again, because of his penchant for using the grand jury for personal vendettas,” she wrote.

Corey knows about personal vendettas. They seem to be her specialty. When Ron Littlepage, a journalist for the Florida Times-Union, wrote a column criticizing her handling of the Christian Fernandez case — in which Corey chose to prosecute a twelve-year-old boy for first-degree murder, who wound up locked in solitary confinement in an adult jail prior to his court date — she “fired off a two-page, single-spaced letter on official state-attorney letterhead hinting at lawsuits for libel.”

When did Zimmerman say he was pursuing "Martin on foot, armed."?

For that matter, when did Zimmerman say he was following Martin?
