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.”
