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?

Oh I didn’t realize George Zimmerman was a celebrity

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.

# 5

WOW. Really?

# 6

Once again, the Jury system failed us.

This man is a full blown murderer.

# 7

Well, these idiots found Casey Anthony not guilty, too.

# 8

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….

Completely appalled.

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.

groundcontrol @ 07/13/2013 at 11:26 pm

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.

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.

George Zimmerman had better live in a bullet proof vest.

Glad to see an innocent man go free, these street thugs get away with murder everyday, I am glad someone did something about it!! Clean up the streets!

@Verity: Or fire-resistant clothes.

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.

@offtheproperty: oh okay so your telling me a 29 year old man couldnt defend himself from a teenager? & trayvon didnt beat the **** out of him because he was angry. Zimmerman was stalking and proceeded to follow him. Any teenage boy would fight back to a man following him. & please Zimmerman barely had any wounds. The wounds he had are seen everyday in high school fights all across America, so your logic is jaded. I feel bad for you because you can’t see beyond race & ignorance. But it’s okay. Racist white people like you are becoming the minority.

no guilty yes!

Not going to lie, I knew he was going to get off from the very beginning. Although I do believe that belongs in jail, the jury did rule favorably. The evidence just wasn’t there. I hate to admit it, but the defense played a solid game.

@sonny: Agree with you. That is why the prosecutor added the manslaughter at the end of the trial they knew they didn’t present a guilty verdict. Praying for the families and jurors.

Damn this motha f*cka’s ugly.

This dude doesn’t look 29, he looks like he’s 45 going through a mid life crisis and goes trigger happy.

Who are you losers, Trayon Martin was a 17 year old man, who was 6’2 and a thug.. Who jumps a stranger and starts beating the sh*t out of them, Zimmerman in a 5’7 little Hispanic . And that should teach all YOU thugs a lesson , just cause you think your tough and your bigger , you think you can beat on a person… Well next you to get a bullet in the chest too, cause you don’t know who packing.

Now that’s justice..!!!!!!! Sorry if you had a gun and some crazy kid , who taller and bigger , breaks you nose and starts uses your head like a ball against cement walk.. Ah I too would shoot him .

Why did Zimmerman go after him when the cops told him not to? Oh yeah, because he’s a big boy since he has his big boy gun! If someone was following, wouldn’t you freak out?

1) There was exactly zero evidence that George followed Travon. Zero. That was the scenario the left-wing media made up and all you idiots believed. Too bad.

2) Travon was a 6′ 2″ grille wearing, street educated thug. Evidence of which was all over his Facebook and Twitter accounts, which were promptly deleted. Not to mention the self-shot photo found on Travon’s phone of him holding a gun supressed from evidence by the proscution which will be investigated now along with photos of likely stolen jewelery and posts about his fighting prowness.

3) Travon’s parents are to be blamed for raising a thug son. That should be a lesson to all you ****** parents who don’t get in the faces of your kids. The thug/gangsta mentality is all too common among black youth in this county. Hence their general lack of education, their unemployment levels and propensity to be criminals and in jail.

4) It’s too bad he died, but I suspect that many of you who commented hatefully here wouldn’t have batted an eyebrow had Travon killed George in the first place. Idiots.

Wow, the word “sh1tty” is not allowed here.

Very sad…
If I’m followed by a stranger holding a gun, I would try to run away and if he catches up with me, I would hit or kick or do whatever to save my life, to defend myself. That’s what Trayvon Martin did. George Zimmerman shot Trayvon to “defend” himself? That’s only a half of the story.

Justice for George Z @ 07/14/2013 at 12:53 am

Great job, Florida jurors. I’m proud the system works. This was a self-defense case all the way. If only thug Trayvon hadn’t jumped George as he was going back to his car. If only thug Trayvon hadn’t beaten George, banged his head up and busted his nose. If only.

Justice for George Z @ 07/14/2013 at 12:59 am

@Lauren: If you’re angry, remember you just said FL was full of morons. I have to agree but they also voted for barackobama twice so yes, they’re morons. You reap what you sow. I’m glad that six Floridians had the GUTS to vote correctly. You can’t convict someone who kills in self-defense.

A true travesty of justice. Absolutely stunned by this. May God bless Trayvon’s Martin’s parents and help them somehow make peace within this horror and move forward. It is not over for Zimmerman. God makes all things right in the end.

Just reading the racist remarks here regarding a teenager murdered speaks volume and the reason why Zimmerman got away with murder. I’m sure if the kid was a real threat he would have been alive, coward picked harmless teenager. However, I do wish him and other cowards here a good meeting with a real thug be it black or white.

Just reading all the uninformed, emotional responses based on misunderstanding the facts of the case speaks volumes and is the reason why we have a justice system in this nation instead of street mobs. A teenager is dead because he thought being a pot smoking, gansta, racist thug was the way to be cool. Had he not decided to approach Gorge and get in his face, break his nose, pound him into the ground and reach for his gun, maybe he would be alive today.

Why can’t we sophena the NSA and have them play back the phone call between Travon and his girlfriend? How much do you want to bet that Travon told his girlfriend that he was going to see what that cracker’s problem is, or worse? Case would be closed then, wouldn’t it? But even that wouldn’t satisfy the racist, uneducated, Obama voters among us, would it?

Stinger if George not been an idiot this never would have happened. Guy thinks he’s Superman and Dudley DoRight because he has a gun. And who approached who? You have George who stands to pay for his crime in prison at the hands of inmates, of course he’s going to lie. The other person is dead and cannot speak for himself.

Stick to the facts. Treyvon was not in the act of commiting a crime. He was unarmed. Moron George was looking for a reason and you know it.

Sorry, RPM. George was protecting his home, family and property – something he has EVERY right to do. And ya, who approached who? There was NO evidence to support the theory that George approached Travon. Zero. Nada. Zilch. No evidence supported prosecutors. None. Zippo. The only eye witness saw Travon wailing blows down upon George. What does unarmed have to do with the fact that Travon found George’s gun and was about to use it on George. Would that have made you happy, RPM, had Travon just killed George? Would that have made you feel good? Jackass. No evidence supported the prosecution and if you actually watched the trial, you would know that. I feel sorry that you can’t make a educated judgement based on facts and not on emotional, made up scenarios that the media was pushing. Too bad for you and people like you.

Your name calling is not emotional? Wow. An educated person would not need to resort to such an emotional response. Sorry but you are guilty of false reasoning.

More inconvenient facts for people who didn’t like the verdict:

1) George was the only person injured, other than the gunshot. The photos taken at the scene and afterwards prove that.

2) If George was on top of Travon, hitting him, where were the bruises on George’s hands? There were none.

3) If George was on top of Travon when Travon was shot, then why wasn’t a bullet found on the ground after it went through Travon? Because George was on the bottom firing up. Duh.

Conclusion: Travon was 17-year-old 6’2″, grille wearing, pot smoking thug who thought he was tough. He popped George in the face, broke his nose and knocked him down with one blow. He wailed blows down upon George not knowing George had a gun. When he discovered the gun near Georges beltline, he tried to grab for it and lost. He paid for that with his life. Too bad for him.

Zimmerman’s nose wasn’t broken. there was no Zimmerman DNA on Tray. Zimmerman didn’t call for help and didn’t call 911 again after he shot Tray for OVER 2 minutes. Tray wasn’t a “thug”. He was found laying on the ground FACE DOWN with his hands under him after being shot point blank in the heart. How could that be if Zimmerman told the truth?

Zimmerman will hurt someone again. “God’s plan” my backside.

Zimmerman is a violent dweeb who thinks he is in Street Comabt or something. Sad — but true. I’m glad I don’t live down there. I can’t imagine how black parents teach there kids about living now. Can’t. EVEN. Imagine. What They Say.

Stinger5 I guess you would be happy if it were like the good old days when if a young black man was wanted dead anyone could find one hanging from a tree. The justice system did not work then because no one saw the hangings either. Therefore no crime could have been committed. My guess is that you would probably suggest suicide in all of those cases. :-) Do not get angry because you did not think of that theory first.

>Zimmerman’s nose wasn’t broken.

Um, yes it was. Have you seen the photos taken at the scene?

>there was no Zimmerman DNA on Tray.

Not true either. They only didn’t find DNA under Travon’s fingernails. Means nothing. If you make a proper fist, you would not necessarily get DNA under your fingernails. In addition Travon had VERY SHORT fingernails, as pictured in the photo of him holding a gun which was withheld from evidence.

>Zimmerman didn’t call for help and didn’t call 911 again after he shot Tray for OVER 2 minutes.

The police were already on their way from the previous phone call and showed up shortly after the shot. There was no need to call 911.

>Tray wasn’t a “thug”. He was found laying on the ground FACE DOWN with his hands under him after being shot point blank in the heart.

Right, because he was on top, duh.

Tray, it is people like you who are racist. You see everything as us vs them, blacks vs white, etc. This case had NOTHING to do with race until the charlatans like Al Sharpton and the leftist media made it racial. Suddenly Zimmerman was white, not hispanic. By that same definition, Obama is white. Had this been one of the hundereds of black on black crimes every year in Chicago, nothing would have been made of it. Same if Travon was white. Had Travon killed George using George’s own gun like he tried to, the headline would have been “Man killed by his own gun near his house, killer still at large” and nothing would have come of it. The racists made this a racial case, not the facts. And as far as me, I have black friends now, I’ve had black friends since I was a kid. I would vote for black president if he wasn’t an idiot democrat. Race means nothing to me when it comes to that, only content of character.

@Stinger5: The fact that you classify your friends as black or otherwise tells me all I need to know about you. I just have friends.

Sure you do Tray, sure you do. And this is a discussion about race – you started it.

@Stinger5: No the previous posts were about race I just commented to show the same logic you are applying to this case has been applied in this country to many other murders that the victims just happen to be young black men. Some of whom were 6’2, taller or shorter. Just trying to make sure people see that it is a different time but same old practices in this country. Some things just like some people never change.

Tray, hey yah, just make your own narrative. Ignore the facts. People like you do that all the time and no facts, not even video of the incident would impress you.

And as far as young black men being murder vicitms, most black men who are murder victims are killed by other black men. That’s according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics.

http://bjs.ojp.usdoj.gov/content/pub/pdf/bvvc.pdf

But don’t let the facts get in the way of your narrative.

Oh by the way, see page 3 in that pdf, third paragraph, although i suggest you read all of it and maybe learn something.

“In 2005 most homicides involving one victim and one offender were INTRAracial. About 93% of black homicide victims and 85% of white victims in single victim and single offender homicides were murdered by someone of their race.”

@Stinger5: You are correct and the same statistic exists when talking about young white men too. Your point is?

Tray, in your last post you said:

“No the previous posts were about race I just commented to show the same logic you are applying to this case has been applied in this country to many other murders that the victims just happen to be young black men. Some of whom were 6’2, taller or shorter. Just trying to make sure people see that it is a different time but same old practices in this country. Some things just like some people never change.”

You said that. My point is that most black men who are murdered are murdered by other black men, period. The leftist news narrative that “white people are a killin’ black folk” is just wrong and completely racist. Stop listening to the mainstream media and face reality.

@Stinger5: If you read my post blacks kill blacks and whites kill whites, but when non blacks kill blacks they get aquitted when blacks kill non blacks they get convicted check your same sources. The statistics are there.

We live in america and the both of us know the facts. You can not convince me or yourself that this country is not the same that is was 50 years ago. If you think so just look at the verdict of this case and the verdict of the other civil rights murder cases. Medger Evans, and the other white civil rights workers that were murdered and then buried by the crooked law enforcement at that time to name a few.

This is why many young black men still view law enforcement as predators for profiling just like Trayvons murderer.

Ask yourself this question if Trayvon looked like his murderer do you think he would still be alive?

We both know that answer. Have a good night. I will sleep well hope you can, but you probably will because I am sure you have no moral or ethical conscious.

Lamborghini Fan Boy @ 07/14/2013 at 4:01 am

I forgive you George Zimmerman for the crime that you have committed i refuse to be apart of setting the human race back 200 years by feeding into hate i refuse slam an entire race for the crime of one man maybe 6 years when i was young and dumb i would have definitely been shouting idiotic racial slurs in Myspace comments to quote on quote release my so called anger but im very mature about the situation because who am i to pass judgement upon another thats GOD’s task the Trayvon Martin case has taught me that it’s time for the human race need to come together as one and stop the violence and preserve peace.

@groundcontrol: What more evidence do you need. He shot an unarmed 17 year old who was doing nothing in the chest. What kind of evidence do you require? This is the problem with the system…people like you think they understand it, so, slick lawyers are able to get people acquitted because you are looking for some CSI Television evidence. Please. You can’t just stalk and shoot a person who has done nothing!!!!

Anybody with more than 2 braincells, who had actually followed the trial – the actual trial and not just listened to the useless pundits on tv – knew that there was no way there could be any other outcome.

It doesn’t have to mean Zimmerman is innocent, but it does mean that the state failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt.

I would have voted ‘not guilty’ too. Specially after the forensic experts testimony.

………

I can’t………

My Prays goes out to the Martin’s

He was innocent. Black people are out jumping innocent non black people in mob attacks every day! EVERY DAY black teen youth are attacking innocent people in mob attacks. That doesn’t get reported.

Justice comes in many forms. His will come one way or another.

@Stinger5:

Right, because he was on top, duh.

Wait. If Tray was on top, got shot, he would have fallen backwards, on his back. Other scenario; he fell on top of the shooter, but how did his hand stay neatly underneath his body when the shooter tried to get from under him? Weird, and doesn’t make sense.
And why didn’t the shooter shoot his legs, shoulder or something else instead of doing a killshot?

Whycantipost @ 07/14/2013 at 8:44 am

To add to #69:

Other scenario; he fell on top of the shooter, but how did his hand stay neatly underneath his body when the shooter tried to get from under him?

–> Wouldn’t the shooter flip the body of of him, instead of crawling from underneath it? In that case Tray would have been found on his back.

Sorry Stinger, but your statement about him being on top makes no sense if he was found face down.

Whycantipost @ 07/14/2013 at 9:03 am

@Tray:

Ask yourself this question if Trayvon looked like his murderer do you think he would still be alive?

Sad thing is, he probably would be. If every ‘maybe burglar’ was dressed in a suit and tie they wouldn’t be followed. If Tray was dressed ‘properly (can’t find a fitting word for it, sorry,)’ Zimmerman wouldn’t have even found him suspicious, just a dude walking down the street. Man, even I dressed up in Tray’s outfit at the time (as a white girl here) Zimmerman would not have noticed/followed me. He was followed because he was a black male, dressed in gangsta attire (as Zimmerman saw it; man on a mission; criminal mission).

And that’s the sad truth.

Whatever happened afterwards was started by a dumb dude’s idea of what a criminal looks like. And he thought he was a tough wannabe cop, so he followed him. What do you do when you notice you get followed? You defend yourself and want to know why you are followed. Maybe Tray got agressive because a strange dude came after him while he was doing nothing wrong. I would have been mad too. No idea who threw the first punch, but still, this could have easily be prevented if Zimmerman wasn’t prejudiced in the first place AND if he had listened to the cops. Whether he killed Tray out of selfdefense or plain murder, he is guilty of this young man’s death, because it all started with him following the kid, not listening to a police officer who told him to NOT go after him etc.

USA is a joke in the World @ 07/14/2013 at 9:08 am

It´s repulsive and indignant to wake up and learn that a assassin, a murderer of a boy have been declared “not guilty” by a jury in the USA. The biggest racist country and a joke for all world.

I´m in shock to know that a man with a gun, go after a boy (black), intercepted and start a fight (probably with is gun already in his hand) and when he find the right moment (after some punch) he shot deadly the unarmed boy.

In the USA the justice is a joke. Money is all that matters. After months of a tv circus the jury (that it is a mirror of American people) have the disgusting and absurd decision to declared the KILLER — ” NoT GUILTY”.

It´s a bad joke. Any person in the world fell ashamed with this justice.
The Americans with some sense of justice must fell ashamed and do some to change this shame.

Now, the world look to USA with pity, shame and thinking that in USA there are much more idiots that we think a great country need.

After the Guantanamo prison, the drones kills, the deregulation of the banks and the fall of world economy, the wars that USA support, the spy-program and now (again) the racist justice of USA.

USA is a great country for rich and powerful people. It´s a joke of a country. Shame on USA.

@LooseLipz: TRAYVON WAS TRESPASSING!!! WHAT THE HELL WAS HE DOING IN A GATED NEIGHBORHOOD?? ZIMMERMAN, A NORMAL 29 YEAR MAN IN CHARGE OF HIS NEIGHBORHOOD CRIME WATCH TOLD THE BOY WHO WAS TRESPASSING TO STOP AND HE DIDN’T STOP. IS ZIMMERMAN JUST SUPPOSED TO WATCH AS A RANDOM STRANGER ENTERS HIS NEIGHBORHOOD OR JUST ALLOW HIMSELF TO GET BEATEN UP WHILE ARMED WITH A GUN FOR CIRCUMSTANCES LIKE THESE??? What motive does a 29 year old neighborhood security guard have for killing an “innocent” boy for no good reason? But what motive did Treyvon have for trespassing in a gated neighborhood?????

Whycantipost @ 07/14/2013 at 10:42 am

@thecoldhardfacts:

Uhm, he lived there, smartass. He wasn’t trespassing, he was walking home and killed close to his frontdoor.

HardDoseOfReality @ 07/14/2013 at 11:32 am

If Zimmerman is guilty, he is a freakin’ genius!
1) He called 911 as he planned the murder of this young innocent. That’s a first! Pure genius!!
2) Allowed him to break his nose and crack his skull before he shot him.
(A little risky on his part, but all a part of the master plan, right?)
3) Rigged the situation where the only thing any eyewitness actually saw was him getting beaten within an inch of his life. (Don’t know HOW he pulled that one off.)

The perfect crime! Genius………

@Jereomy:

I agree with you. I mean obviously he was guilty, there is not doubt he shot Trayvon, but the prosecution weren’t able to prove the self-defense theory wrong. Sadly, we live in a country were the justice system lets a criminal appeal a guilty verdict and doesn’t let the other party appeal a not guilty verdict which doesn’t make sense.

I will argue that his “injuries” are complete BS IMHO. I’m not a medical expert but I would think that one would pass out or have much deeper injuries when you’re head is being pounded against pavement.

I also think that we need to seriously stop making things a race issue. Let’s stop this oh you’re white americans are out to get me bc I’m black/hispanic poor me, let’s cut that **** out. I can honestly say that as a Honduran, I have never felt any racism from white americans in my 20 years (I’m 24) leaving in this country. If anything racism I’ve experienced or seen towards others come from Cubans and other hispanics.

No justice! Shame!

“Jared, I cannot believe you quoted Benjamin Crump who should be ashamed of himself for his behavior during this case.”

ITA with this statement. Crump is ideliberately nciting for attention and comparing non-sequiturs…Martin was and is no Emmett Til. It’s an insult to what Emmett Til represents and endured to put Martin in the same sentence. It is “wrong” and inaccurate for an educated attorney like Crump to make such a foolish statement.

J.B. Good @ 07/15/2013 at 4:53 pm

The terible thing about this is that if this kid (who is shown in photos throwing up gang signs) was not black, it NEVER would have gotten this much attention. We wern’t there, don’t know what happened, but if you’re a person of color the assumption is that the kid was an angel and cold blooded murdered. I’m glad you all have crystal balls or psychick powers and know what happened. If the kid was white, we would not have heard of this case. Wake up America and smell the reverse racism.
