George Zimmerman: Not Guilty for Trayvon Martin Murder

George Zimmerman: Not Guilty for Trayvon Martin Murder

A non-guilty verdict has been reached for George Zimmerman, who was tried for second degree murder and manslaughter for the death of Trayvon Martin.

The 29-year-old neighborhood watch coordinator for a gated community shot the 17-year-old teenager on February, 26, 2012 in Sanford, Fla, in what he claimed was self defense.

The murder trial began on June 10 and took around a month to reach a verdict.

“You have a little black boy who was killed,” Benjamin Crump, an attorney for the parents of Trayvon said in the courtroom during the trial. “It’s going to be reported in history books and 50 years from now, our children will talk about Trayvon Martin‘s case like we talk about Emmett Till.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK of the final verdict in the Zimmerman-Martin case?

    Zimmerman is a Fat ugly loser. And he may not have gotten it in court but he will face a harsher jury on the street. Ask Casey Anthony.
    ALSO — Why are you reporting on this idiot, JJ??? Get a grip and stick to the trash and D-Listers that you are good at.

    Karma will come for George Zimmerman just like it did for O.J Simpson. O.J got away with murder as well but Karma put him away in jail for the rest of his life on burglary charges.

    The Banks, The Gun Lobby, The War lobby,The government The justice system – all dead and rotten. America has died and it’s people are free to kill children BY RIGHT and declare standing their ground- while women who want the right to choose are told they are murderers.

    Saudi Arabia is a democracy now. At least their courts EXECUTE pedophiles – our system lets them go along with everybody else. Unless you’re an honest citizen that is; if you are : you get sent to GTMO by order to the secret court of fascist America.

    Oh WOW! This world is in such a sorry state. Just look at what is being accepted? Look at Syria, look at Egypt.. look closer to home, all this crazy stuff in the news. People have lost their minds. RIP Trayvon. George will get his in the next life.

    Another child murderer goes free in Florida!! The man said it was God’s will he killed an innocent unarmed teenager so he’s going to be a serial killer mark my words! Now civilians can walk up to you with a loaded weapon and make demands on you and kill you if you resist or defend yourself. Democracy is dead in America indeed!

    Convinced now more than ever that Florida is full of morons. First Casey Anthony, now this? Want to murder someone, drag them to Florida. The jury always acquits!

    And 3, 2, 1, I officially have lost faith in humanity….well if I ever get murdered would someone do me a favor and give them a good slap on the wrist and a stern, “naughty, naughty!” cause that’s about all I can probably count on….

    Hate to be the voice of reason here, but none of us knows what went on during the trial. Obviously the prosecution couldn’t prove it’s case beyond reasonable doubt. I know I’m gonna get hate for saying it, but that’s how it works.

    I think this is certainly not a subject to be discussed on a 3rd rate celebrity gossip board.

    Every African-American commentator I’ve heard has adamantly refused to concede African-Americans’ rights to beat the sh*t out of white people. Not every African-American who beat the sh*t out of a white man (or a “white-Hispanic) has gotten shot in the chest. But African-Americans need to understand that when they decide to beat the sh*t out of another white man because they feel offended or disrespected or angry — they might.
    Just like they do in Chicago and every other ghetto everywhere.

    Jared, I cannot believe you quoted Benjamin Crump who should be ashamed of himself for his behavior during this case.
    I think the evidence was lacking and so did the jury. We convict on evidence in this country – evidence beyond a reasonable doubt. We do not convict on speculation or our imaginings or on our emotions.
    Sad as Trayvon’s death is, it doesn’t follow that someone must have committed a crime.

    monroe Says:

    Look, if they couldn’t even convict Casey Anthony of killing her baby, how could anyone expect them to get it right for Trayvon?

    Tell you what. I would hate to be George Zimmerman right now.

    My heart is with Trayvon’s parents and his loved ones.

    Sorry, Lauren, but if you have an issue with these acquittals then you should take it up with the prosecutors. The Anthony trial was abysmally tried. The state simply lacked evidence to prove its case and what’s worse they put on junk science which the jury saw right through.
    Again, we convict on evidence not sympathy, not anger at defendants, and not emotions. And certainly not the hooey “forensics” the state tried to foist on the jury which should never have been allowed into evidence in the first place. Perhaps it was because the body was found so long after the death but if there WAS evidence at an earlier time it was no longer there when the victim was found.
    That’s how our system works. I was surprised at how smart the Anthony jury turned out to be in the midst of the hysteria that surrounded that trial.
    It takes tremendous courage to ignore the hysteria clamoring for conviction and the fear of what you may face after an unpopular verdict for a juror to calmly face the evidence as presented and make an objective analysis of it and render a verdict. Whether you agree or not there should be respect for these juries.

    As I’ve posted once before, in America, you can be shot for carrying a bag of skittles, and in America, you can get away with murder.
