    Why did everyone think he would go to jail for killing a black kid. Black people are still second class citiizens in America. Every time a black person becomes successful, the first thing they do is try to remind people they are everything except BLACK. Just like Tiger Woods and Beyonce.

    Simon Says:

    @Verity: George Zimmerman wasn’t white, he was Hispanic. Most people complaining about the verdict really have no idea what happened during the trial, or what really happened that night. According to the evidence, it was self defense. I don’t believe he should be sent to death row for that. I do however think that he shouldn’t get off scot-free either. He serve at least for man slaughter.

    yep Says:

    None of the celebrities commenting have ever served on a murder trial. It is hard yet as a juror you have to base the verdict on the evidence. The manslaughter was thrown in at the last minute because the prosecutor most likely realized that he didn’t present a guilty verdict. I have never seen that happen before where they add on at the end of the trial. Murder trial verdicts are very hard on everyone there are no “winners”. A life has been taken and life has changed for families and jurors. You don’t just walk away after a verdict and still not feel the pain for the families. May God comfort all of them.

    @offtheproperty: are you dumb? Zimmerman killed an innocent teenager . He followed him(even though he was told not to) and killed him. & “african american rights to beat the crap out of white people”? really? what about all those years where it was okay for white people to whip us,enslave us, and lynch us just because we were black. This is America, land built off of the sweat & tears of black people. Land stolen from the Native Americans. African Americans have the right to fight back now & your mad about it, Get over it.

    These comments are disgusting Says:

    A life was not lost, it was taken. That matters. The only living person that knows what happened is the same person that committed the crime and was just acquitted on all accounts. That matters too. Race does not matter (Zimmerman is hispanic, for one. Two, people of the same skin tone kill each other too. Please, join us in the new millenium so we can stop every injustice of the past from repeating), your opinions cannot change the verdict…so shove your first-person-label-profiling comments back up your asses with the rest of your ****. YOU ARE ALL PEOPLE. End of story. Celebrities are speaking up about this topic just like the rest of the world so you look moronic attacking them for it when you’re on a CELEBRITY SITE. And to “Not Surprised,” what would you like them to do? Subject themselves to every stereotype? Quote civil rights leaders on the daily? Drag on this race war that needs to come to an end? Because other successful people don’t do that, so why should they? All that would do is keep you seeing in black and white and let race prevent you from seeing what kind of person they are.

    Who gives a shizzle what celebrities like brainless twit Minaj thinks? Justice was served. Six Floridians agreed that George Zimmerman is not guilty of second degree murder OR manslaughter. He’s not guilty, period. He should have never been charged, this is a freaking travesty. You can’t charge someone for killing in self-defense.

    Uh zimmerman isn’t white and he didn’t get beat up. No Zimmerman DNA anywhere on Tray but Zimmerman’s fingerprints on Tray’s waistband. What was Tray supposed to do when this creepy guy attacked him?

    BTW He was 17 years old. No way he can own a gun and carry it around like pretend cop Zimmerman.

    Uh …. no George Zimmerman knows what happened that night. That is why he changed his story five times and lied incessantly. Also — Tray knows what happened. But he is with God so there you go. I wonder which right-winger will claim God talked to her/him and told them George Zimmerman is innocent. I will NEVER believe it. And his grinning and giggling when the verdict came down is abysmally no-class behavior. Mind my words he will hurt someone again. And Florida gave him back his gun to make sure of it.

    Damian Says:

    This is sickening. If you get behind the wheel of a car drunk and kill someone you are guilty vehicular manslaughter. But if you leave the safety of your house where you where in no danger and where told to stay by a 911 operator, and you take a gun, pursue an unarmed child and shoot him you go free. This is a sad, sad country we live in.

  51. 51
    Truth , not race Says:

    The second-degree murder charge was unreasonable — and the prosecution provided almost no evidence in support of it. A manslaughter charge was at least rational, though, and a jury might have convicted on that charge, if they could find no reasonable doubt that Zimmerman had rationally feared for his life or grave bodily harm without the use of lethal force. That was always the only legal issue in question, and apparently the jury couldn’t dispel that reasonable doubt — and therefore reached the proper verdict.

    @Sam: i’m not blaming anyone for anything. obviously you didn’t see who i was replying to. He said that african americans think we can have a free pass of beating the crap out of white people and getting away with it and not face the consequences of getting killed. We have been treated like **** for centuries now so now that we’re fighting back, he wants to make it seem like we should just take it. Um, no one was talking about your ancestors. I was talking about racist, self important white people who think its okay to go around treating black people like crap and insist on putting us down and making us feel like we belong on the bottom of their shoe. & something that happened 150 years ago? i’m pretty sure we were still lynched and being treated as bottom feeders in the 50′s and 60′s. I wasnt making race an issue. the person i was replying back to did.

  54. 54
    horace Says:

    @Nimme: No actually there was no evidence Zimmerman had any significant injuries on the night he killed Tray and there was none of his DNA on Tray so how could he have been injured. He didn’t go to the hospital or allow the paramedics to treat him and he had ZERO stitches and NADA broken. Also nowhere near concrete..

    Sam Says:

    Most celebrities probably did not follow the trial, and if they did they got what everyone else gets from tv which is bit and pieces, a lot of useless and biased commentaries from people getting paid big money to make them, and pr machinery. The jury examined the evidence including medical records and heard testimonies. Trayvon was 17 but he had a drug problem, and drugs make people do violent things plus he was physically overpowering. The media fed a photo of Trayvon as a kid. These celebrities will say anything. Hollywood truly hates Latinos unless they are cleaning the houses of the celebrities. Some of these celebrities making their comments use drugs while others beat up women. Good thing none of them was a juror.

  57. 57
    Mike Says:

    Let me clear this up for you monkeys. George is not guilty because he was attacked first. He was simply defending himself. As a former NY State Licensed Security Guard, I can speak on this better than the public can. He did absolutely nothing wrong. He did everything by the book. Some operator told him that he didn’t have to pursue? Operators have no authority to do anything. If he thought Martin was a potential problem, he was absolutely right to pursue. He should have had an amber light on his roof, and some sort of badge identifying himself. If he didn’t, thats the property managers fault, not his. Once he identified himself, Trayvon should have cooperated. He chose not to. Instead, George went back to his car and Trayvon should have gone home. Again, he chose not to. He chose to attack George. At that point, its self defense. George can do whatever he feels is necessary to defend himself. He was grossly outsized, so there was no way he could fight back. He happened to have a gun and chose to use it. That was his choice. It was probably the right choice to save his life. Once Trayvon attacked him, somebody was dying. George made sure it wasn’t him.
    This whole thing was about choices. Trayvon made the wrong ones. George made the one to save his life. Nothing wrong with that. Now because the little thug made the wrong choices, he’ll *********** for all of eternity. From the way it sounds, it couldn’t happen to a nicer “person”.
    This had nothing to do with race. The media made it about race. If George was attacked by any other race, I bet he’d have done the same thing.
    Besides, Blacks really can’t be trusted. Even their biggest supporters know it;

    @Nimme:BS — they were on grass!!!!!!! TM was found NOWHERE NEAR concrete. Tray wasn’t a “thug” Zimmerman is 29 years old — 28 when it happend and training 3 days a week at MMA. He stalked Tray and approached him and he HAD a gun. None of Tray’s DNA was on Zimmerman. He probably bashed his face during the 2 minutes he took to dial 911 and report the shooting — all the time calling Tray “the suspect” like the cop wannabe he was —and probably is.

    Zimmerman should have NEVER been prosecuted in the first place. It was self-defense, and the sheriff at the time knew it and didn’t charge him. It wasn’t until all of the racial baiters/haters and Obama < used it to Get out the vote to win Florida) . got involved and had a special prosecutor file charges against him. This was such a waste of taxpayer money and court time!! I hope that Mr. Zimmerman stays safe and can go back to some semblance of a normal life now.

    There is no happiness for this verdict, but it was the right verdict. I’m sorry if the facts offend all of you who are caught up in the emotion of this trial, but the evidence didn’t support the murder 2 charge plain and simple. Do I think that GZ instigated this…yes, but I think TM quickly became the aggressor and it got out of hand. Besides, he will be found culpable in the civil trial, for sure.

    @offtheproperty:
    You were not born in Africa though you may have African blood. You are an American. I am American Indian.My people were born here from day one and some of them were turned into slaves. You wanna blame someone for you being here in America? Try blaming the Africans that kidnapped each other and sold your ancestors to the slave traders for pots and pans. Or haven’t you taken the time to read “Roots” by Alex Haley…a fine black author. I am sick and tired of hearing this racist crap. People should have been born color blind and then maybe this s–t talk would stop.
    I agree that maybe the law should be repealed or adjusted. But just think if you were being attacked. What are you going to do? Stand there?Or fight back? I believe they were BOTH wrong and it ended tragically. None of us were there to know the truth and the evidence was not forthcoming.
    I don’t see anyone black giving a moment of silence when a kid from another ethnic background gets killed the way Beyonce called for with Trayvon {not counting school massacres, shoot, I don’t recall Beyonce doing it then either}.
    If you all want racism to stop it has to start with all of us. Oprah has said so as well as Bill Cosby and a few others. Blacks go around calling each other “niggah”. And talk dis and dat. Blacks kill each other everyday in gang fights. Blacks insult each other everyday and when they do so it keeps the racism going….because they are being racist to each other. Period.
    Injustices happen all the time. But not just to blacks. I rarely hear the outraged cries from the Jewish people, or we American Indians, or the Chinese, or any other race EXCEPT when something happens to a black person. That’s when I hear the biggest outcry of racism being done. And I am sick of it.
    You are an American. If you want the laws changed do something about it. I do. If you do not want to be a part of America and act like an American then leave. This will never be Africa and frankly I highly doubt that Africa would accept any black from America as an African son or daughter {with the exception of Alex Haley and Oprah} no matter the ancestry.
    I see people for who they are. Not what color they are or what religion they believe in {unless it hurts people}.
    These celebs are a group of people who “hang” but also have to watch out for their own arses because of their affiliation with each other. So where the majority goes the others follow. They do not want to be an outcast for any reason among themselves.
    I am sorry for Travyon and those who love him. But countless children are kidnapped, raped, and killed every single day. And yet I don’t hear Beyonce calling for a moment of silence for them. Or donating money to help find them either though she just earned 50 mil for flaunting herself in Flaunt.I don’t hear the outcry that I have heard for Trayvon raised up for those children.
    Everyone needs to start realizing that we are all human beings and none of us should be known by our race first but by the content of our personality and heart. We have names and they aren’t Black, White, Yellow, or Red.
    Until that happens there will always be racism….because racism breeds racism. And it affects all of us like the plague. ~D

    @Not Surprised:
    Ahhhh. I am an American Indian. From my perspective so called “white” folk have become second and even possibly 3rd class citizens with Hispanics being first, blacks being second, and whites coming in third. Why do I say this? Hispanics and blacks get cut more slack by the government than whites do education wise, Social Welfare, and jobs because they are the so called minority.Even in the entertainment business it is quite noticeable. Minority my butt. American Indians have their own government for the most part but we still get crapped on. And we are the original “Americans”. We have had a major immigrant implosion from Puerto Rico or hasn’t anybody noticed.The second language of the USA is Spanish….even on telephone recordings. Now ask yourself why.

    @bfj:
    Although I can see where whiteandproudofit would make you angry as it did me I can say that I have been with a black man {actually more than one} and have a child by one of them you can’t actually call it the “browning of America” as that started back when plantation owners would breed black with white, then white again, then white again because the quadroons [the children who were white but had black blood in their veins} would bring exceptionally high prices…thousands upon thousands of dollars in many cases and many were schooled and trained to be high class companions and mistresses to wealthy landowners.Some were to become high class, fancy courtesans. In fact, sometimes quadroons were called “fancies”. Some were able to escape up north easily because of their white skin and blue, green, gray, violet,or hazel eyes with auburn, blonde, brown, black, red hair and their proper speech and social graces. Take a look at a lot of older black people and you will notice that many of them are very light complected. Dinah Shore for one, Alex Haley, Lional Ritchie, and plenty more including my 2 nieces {2 blondes 1 with gray eyes and the other with blue. Their sister obviously shows black heritage}. Plus there is more freedom for us all now where inter racial relationships are out in the open more than they use to be and the population is much larger. So it is a matter of seeing it more and there is more of it. But I have also noticed something else in my 60 years. Most mixed relationships do not tend to work for long and that many black men get a blast out of having a white women on their arm. It’s like saying,”I’m black and I got me a whitey, I’m the man”. Now please understand. I am 3/4 Mohawk Indian and 1/4 Scottish and while it took me awhile to figure out that most of the blacks I dated were superficial and not truly “in love” with me but enjoyed the flaunt and the sex I still hold out hope that the day will come when the majority of black men will only date white {or women such as myself because I am not white} women because they genuinely care for them and not because it gives them a certain social status or ego boost. I know this is the case for the majority…but not all.
    People tend to also forget that it was Africans who sold Africans to the slave traders for the most part and yet it is white people who are blamed for it. But blacks weren’t the only slaves. Don’t forget that indentured servants from around the world were enslaved as well as my own people, the American Indians, and the Chinese. None were treated any worse or any better than black slaves. They too were worked or bred to death. And occasionally there was a good “master” but not all that often. But, it was back then when your “browning of America” began. It is simply continuing in a more rapid state because of the freedoms you and I now enjoy and because there are more of us. I wish you well and don’t let an ass like whiteandproudofit get you down overly much. After all, as time passes I hope he and those like him will become extinct and all of us become color blind. ~D~

    ONE QUESTION, HAS EVERYONE NOTICED HOW NONE OF THE “WHITE POPULATION’” ON THIS SITE HAS CHOSEN TO COMMENT ON A VERY REAL ISSUE THAT HAS BEEN EXPOSED DURING THIS CONVERSATION?
    “THE BROWNING OF AMERICA”….I SAY TO ALL WHITE MEN COMMENTING ON THIS ZIMMERMAN ISSUE…IF YOU ARE TRULY AS WISE AS YOU WANT AMERICA TO BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE, YOU’D BETTER BEGIN CONVERSING ABOUT HOW YOUR WHITE FEMALES ARE HAPPILY CREATING RACIAL GENOCIDE !!!!!
    NONE OF YOU IDIOTS SHOULD BE SPENDING TIME WORRYING ABOUT TRAYVON OR ZIMMERMAN. BOTH OF THOSE RACES ARE INCREASING IN POPULATION….YOU BETTER WAKE UP AND LOOK AROUND BECAUSE SOONER RATHER THAN LATER, THE JUDICIAL EQUALIZER WILL NOT LOOK LIKE YOU, NOR HAVE YOUR BEST INTEREST AT HEART.
    INSTEAD OF SPILLING RACIST COMMENTS TOWARDS BLACKS, IF YOU WERE WISE YOU WOULD FIGURE AND DEVISE A WAY TO STOP THE RACIAL GENOCIDE THAT YOUR LITTLE WHITE GIRLS ARE BLISSFULLY ENGAGED IN.
    FOR BLACK MEN AND WOMEN I SAY…YOU ARE ACTUALLY WINNING THE WAR…JUST KEEP IMPREGNATING THE WHITE WOMAN.!!!!! THIS ZIMMERMAN TRIAL WILL SOON BE A VERY DISTANT AND IRRELEVANT CONVERSATION, AS THE COLOR OF THIS NATION CHANGES.

    I agree with nojusticenopeace!

    We as a country can see the overt change that White women and teenage women/girls has made in their choice of dating and marriage.

    It seems that the White man has lost significant ground in finding a way to not only please, but to actively keep his woman engaged in him.

    What happened to Trayvon and Zimmerman is tragic, however, what’s happening to White America (from the average white man’s perspective) in terms of the active and ongoing occurrance of “Racial Genocide” at the hands of your own White Women should be your Tragedy of Interest.

    If you look at it, “The Browning of America” via race mixing will be the Equalizer of Race in another 15 to 20 years, the Bull has left the gate, and it seem that there’s no reigning him in.

    Looks as if White men have bigger fish to fry than Trayvon Martin, that’s if they are smart enough to see it coming. If I were you, I’d get off this internet site and begin having conversations with your women and girls, to find why you are no longer meeting their needs.

    Maybe it has something to do with your antiquated views you are spilling all over this site!!

    .WHEN IN ESSENCE WHITE AMERICA SHOULD BE CONCERNED ABOUT THE VERY ACTIVE OCCURENCE OF HOW THEIR RACE IS ON THE WAY TO EXTINCTION.

    THAT’S NOT FIGHTING, THAT’S REALITY.. AND AN ISSUE THAT WHITE AMERICA SHOULD BE FOCUSED ON, INSTEAD OF MISSING THE MARK BY PAYING TOO MUCH ATTENTION TO THE ZIMMERMAN VERDICT.

    No one who is commenting on the verdict has actually read the trial transcripts or attended the trial to really know the mind set of the jurors or to even examine the evidence that was heard. Everyone just assumes Zimmerman must be guilty and the 17 year old is dead because of him. None of us know what really happened. If there was evidence proving beyond a reasonable doubt that Zimmerman was guilty, I do believe he would have been found guilty. What happened to innocent until proven guilty . I guess that flew out the window in this case. If you need to blame anyone for this verdict, blame the shabby case the prosecution presented. They jumped the gun in charging him because of public outcry and not because they had solid evidence

Lastly it doesn’t matter what bruises he had because he started the altercation, so Trayvon Martin didn’t have the right to defend himself??? You cant follow someone, start a fight and when you start to lose that fight then you cant decide to shoot and kill someone! Now for all you people making these racist comments ask yourself one thing: if it were the other way around would Trayvon have been acquitted?? The answer is hell no, he would serving a life sentence right now!

For all we know, martin could of seen the gun and thought, “this man is going to hurt me or kill me.” If I was in that position I would of thought the same thing and I would of reacted probably the same.

    First off George Zimmerman was Hispanic. Second he did leave his car and was an idiot for it but on his return back was confronted by trayvon. If you watched the trail you would see the evidenced proved that. I agree it is Zimmerman fault in some way but its as much trayvons as well as his inept parents doing their jobs. It’s their job to take care of their son regardless of his age. He was 17 years old. Young and in shape did significant damage to Zimmerman. That being said when a boy lifts his fists in anger or with ill will he is no longer a boy but a man needing a lesson. Unfort this lesson had deadly consequences. We can blame Zimmerman all we want but don’t forget he chose to wear a hoodie. To walk through backyards instead of on the sidewalk. His mother kicked him out of her own house and why he was in that area was because he was walking to his dads girlfriend place. Forget that his father is a horrible role model for him. That at the age of 17 he had more arrest for drug possessions and aggravated battery. Had been kicked out of his high school for fighting. Sure the kid wasn’t perfect but let it be a lesson to any wanna be thug heading down his road because it might not be a Zimmerman next time. Maybe it will be a thug just like you.

    I hate how people try to deny that race had something to do with the death of Trayvon Martin. Just because Zimmerman is Hispanic, does not mean his actions weren’t racially charged. Also, it is a known fact that he left his car to pursue Trayvon, even after he was specifically instructed not to do so. The events following this are widely debated but I believe that Zimmerman confronted Martin with his weapon visible and Martin felt threatened and retaliated, resulting in his death. While there is only one living person who knows what happened, that still does not change the fact that a 17 year old boy, armed with only an Arizona drink and skittles, was killed by a then 29 year old man, who could have prevented his death by listening to simple instructions and not trying to take the role of a law enforcement official.

    BTW – White boy was pulled from a car on interstate in Atlanta by blacks and thrown into oncoming traffic. He died – Where’s the outrage on that??????

    For people who claim to be such forward thinkers, you all are sure stuck in the past. You people really still feel sorry for black people? The PRESIDENT of the UNITED STATES is black! Black people can do anything that anyone else can do- white, Hispanic, Asian- we all have the same opportunities. It’s not the past that matters it’s what you do with your present and future. If anyone, regardless of color, thinks slavery or segregation was okay then they are an idiot. Can everyone agree that slavery and segregation was absolutely terrible and something this country should wish had never happened? Yes? Okay then. Beyond that it’s over. I haven’t own a slave, you haven’t owned a slave. I drink from the same fountain as everyone else and sit in the same seats on the bus as everyone else. At some point the past needs to stay right where it is- in the past! Was it terrible that someone died? Yes, but let me ask you this- would you be tweeting, protesting, and heart broken if it had been George Zimmerman who died that night instead? If he would have had his head bashed in to the point that he took his last breath? Nope, you wouldn’t know his name. Would Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton shown up for “support” (read SARCASM!) if that HISPANIC man lost his lift at the hands of a young black man? NO! The whole situation is terrible, and the bottom line is the Martins lost their son. We all need to pray for them that God comforts them – just like every other parent or person that loses someone in their life. But what you all have failed to say is that we need to pray for George Zimmerman and his family as well- even though he has been found not guilty by a jury of his peers this lynch-mob of RACISTS will forever find him guilty, and even though he is not behind bars he will never be free.

    Seriously! You’re calling the girl names and insulting her because she’s disgusted by so gross a miscarriage of justice in THE SAME state that recently sentenced a black woman to 20 years for firing a gun INTO THE AIR. TO FRIGHTEN HER ABUSIVE HUSBAND. AFTER JUST 12 MINUTES DELIBERATION. Perhaps you misunderstand what a dumb@$$ is. First step: find a mirror, look in it. Your welcome.

    Tragedies are everywhere…but I believe that there is a side to every story, and I believe that God prevails in everything and he will come to give us all peace of mind in time. I pray that he does. Let love not hate prevail, let’s take to this situation and spread love instead of seeking vengeance.

    America has a race problem. Blacks and whites point at each other and its always about skin colour. This verdict reflected the facts of the case, and if people can remove their skin coloured tinted view of the world they will see a rather complicated set of circumstances. The fact that you retards like carrying guns means that you cannot get upset that yet another person has been killed unnecessarily. Thats the real issue here and to read the comments of so called “celebrities” outraged and missing the point completely that there would likely have been no killing. Yet some of these “celebrities” pose with gun poses, act in films promoting guns and music that loves the gun culture. Guns guns guns. You love them don’t you.

    Two peoples lives ruined, Zimmerman will no doubt now have to live in fear of retribution whilst these celebrities incite hatred against him. He was brought to trial, as far as I have read he hasn’t denied or lied about anything but he is now seen as guilty despite the interpretation of the law by an independent jury.

    America, stop the race hate, stop talking skin colour.

    jbreguet Says:

    Whatever the merits of the Zimmerman jury verdict may be, it had nothing to do with “stand your ground” laws. “Stand your ground” essentially holds that you don’t have to retreat if confronted; in states without such laws, the normal standard is that you must retreat if such retreat is possible before using deadly force.

    In every U.S. state, regardless of whether it has a “stand your ground law,” a person who reasonably is fearful for his life and who reasonably believes he cannot retreat may defend himself up to and including the use of deadly force. Whether or not G. Zimmerman reasonably was in fear of his life can be debated; the jury apparently so believed. Whether we agree with that decision or not, we cannot ignore the fact that there was evidence justifying that jury finding.

    As to this verdict, acquittals in criminal cases occur when the prosecution fails to prove its case. It does not necessarily mean the accused didn’t do it, it means that the prosecution didn’t do its job well. Look at Casey Anthony. Look at O.J. Simpson. Look at Robert Blake, Amanda Knox, Lorraine Bobbit, R. Kelly, William (Kennedy) Smith.

    You can’t blame Zimmerman for the prosecution putting on a lousy case.

    Detroit is a perfect example of what happens to a black run liberal society. Every black neighborhood in my town is a direct result of their own doing. No one is holding anyone down. They hold themselves down with their insane “culture”

    INNOCENT OF ALL CHARGES!

    WHY?

    Because when you sneak up on a man and start beating his head into the ground and do not stop you are not required to DIE. You are facing grievous bodily harm or death and IMMEDIATELY you can take action to stop DYING including LETHAL FORCE.

    This should have never gone to trial and all the rocket scientists think they would have politely asked “Trayvon, why are you mad at me. Please stop this. You are making my head bleed”

    ANYONE WITH A BRAIN KNOWS ZIMMERMAN WAS LEFT NO CHOICE.

    This is America now…a nation of cowards and fools.

    Teach your children well….keep your damn hands off of other people.

    Tragic? Yes!

    Stupid? Yes!

    Guilty? Not a chance. Live with it….they call it THE LAW.

    @jbreguet:

    Your points about the law are 100% correct.

    Where you err is that there was ZERO prosecution that could have convicted a man when the facts were presented. A racist jury could have, but you can’t make a legitimate self-defense, with all the evidence presented, into a murder conviction.

    I wish the black community would stop hating that they are black and committing crimes against each other. No one wakes up in the morning and gives a damn if you are green, yellow, purple, white, orange, or black.

    Your race hustlers have become multimillionaires playing you for the fools you continue to be.

    No…YOU are DUMB.

    The kid wasn’t innocent. The record shows that after Zimmerman left the scene Martin tracked Zimmerman down, snuck-up on him, and was bashing his head into the ground. The hotshot gangsta was cracking his head open and he paid the ultimate price.

    KEEP YOUR HANDS TO YOURSELF!

    @Mike:

    Mike, you naild it.

    I have LEO through my family and teach combat handgun and concealed weapon carry.

    The legal term is “aggressor”. And once Zimmerman left the scene he wasn’t possibly in the role of the aggressor. Martin returned AS THE AGGRESSOR and lost all rights of self-defense while Zimmerman maintained them and fearing grievous bodily harm or death, used deadly force that resulted in a death. Tragic? yes. Guilty? Not a chance.

    Sadly, we are such a dumb nation this actually went to trial.

    This is the ignorance of America, as a government teacher I understand the law, most of you are bandwagoning and it is very frusterating to read. This has been made into a racial outcome because of the audience. I see a hispanic man and a black young man in a fatal confrontation. The causes and effects are for the court to decide, If you truly believe 6 women, mothers, let a stone cold killer go because of the color of the other combatants skin is simply idiotic. This is media selling you a story you ding dongs, wake up!
