    Zimmerman was found not guilty because he was charge with second degree murder as oppose to manslaughter . With second degree murder the jurors couldn't get pass the reasonable doubt factor. He was found not guilty base on that and that only. If he was charged with manslaughter his arse would be sitting in jail right now.

    EB is wrong. The jury ruled NOT GUILTY! Respect the scales of justice!


    Lady Justice is deaf, dumb, and blind. People don't have to respect Jack! The defense proved to the jury that Zimmerman acted in self defense and put the victim (who is dead and can no longer speak for himself) on trial. They made Trayvon out to be the aggressor when he was only a 17 year old boy with a bag of skittles in his pocket, who decided to fight off a man who was stalking him. No, justice wasn't served yesterday. A killer got off Scott free and an innocent boy is still dead. Whatever!


    The jury ruled it was self-defense because Martin was the AGGRESSOR. There were witnesses who testified to that fact. Martin assaulted Zimmerman who shot him in self-defense. Martin was no "innocent". This kid has a rap sheet and violent tendencies. Deal with it, Chucky!


    Zimmerman stalked Tarvyon Martin while in possession of a concealed weapon and unless I'm mistaken, stalking is a form of AGGRESSION.

    When the victim confronted his stalker, he was fatally shot and presumed dead hours later. However, under the "stand your ground" law and other evidence that thinly supported Zimmerman's case, the jurers decided that he was not at fault.

    Is this justice? No. It's technicality of the common law. Does it prove Zimmerman innocent of all charges? No. He is a civilian who discharged a firearm on another unarmed civilian. Had he acted in such manner in the state of NY, the prosecutors and the jurers would have found him negligible (or layman terms, guilty).

    Sorry, whatever it is you're trying to prove is not working. Please try it with someone less educated.


    Zimmerman was not "stalking" as you call it, Chucky. He was PATROLLING as a Member of Neighborhood Watch. It was his duty to protect his community. He was acting in good faith to protect his area which was preyed on by thieves who were breaking & entering into people's homes. Martin matched the description of these criminals and it appeared he was staking out the homes. Keep in mind, Martin had a history of stealing and he was caught with stolen goods at school and suspended for it. He also used drugs.

    Zimmerman was armed, as is his Constitutional Right to Bear Arms. Nothing wrong with that!

    Martin was loitering in the area and acting suspicious. When Zimmerman confronted him, Martin reacted VIOLENTLY and attacked Zimmerman who was forced to defend himself.

    A Jury of his peers examined the evidence and heard all the witness testimony and determined that Zimmerman was NOT GUILTY. Justice was served.

    Those are the facts.

    Thank you!

    And there you have it: a legal technicality set a murderer free.

    Quote dixiedawn: I have a comment that some will disagree with. If you go out and patrol your neighborhood would't it be better to carry pepper spray or a stun gun.I know you have a right to own and carry a gun but sometimes you have to use common sense.What if the gun had been taken away from Mr Zimmerman then he would be dead and his family would be greiving right now. I know my spelling is bad.


    It depends, Dixie. These criminal are often armed and carry guns. Some Neighborhood Watch workers feel more protected carrying a weapon to defend themselves. They put their lives on the line when they go out there. You never know what kind of criminal you may encountered. Some of these kids are high on drugs and will attack with knives and guns of their own. Better safe than sorry, I say!

    Watch means WATCH IMO and if you spot something suspicious, call the PROPER authorities. Not follow a teenager with a drink and skittles and a baggie with weed residue in it. and you can't justify killing someone on what they "might" be doing, or "might" going to do.

    Sad a young man lost his life, but It's over now and we must move on. Really feel bad for his parents/family.
