You're in Florida, right, Butch? What's the mood? Rioting in the streets?
And I'm surprised he wasn't found guilty of 2nd degree or Manslaughter. His directly actions led to Trayvon's death.
WTF: a guy repeats "F------ punks. These a-------. They always get away" during a police call and changes his story x number of times after shooting an unarmed kid with a pack of Skittles and doesn't get convicted of even manslaughter, I don't know what to think.
Not guilty is not the same thing as innocent.
"Honda = Boring, Suzuki = Wannabes, Yamaha = Poser, Ducati = Overated, BMW = Compensating, Aprilia = Insecure, Buell = BCIT business... go faKOffee." - PUREVIL
As far as I'm aware, the prosecution chose the wrong charge to go after and he was found innocent under the eyes of the law. Realistically speaking, the guy is a murderer and garbage, but most evidence Was circumstantial.
There are significantly bigger things the American public should be paying attention to, this is but a blip on the radar that was sensationalized by the main stream media.
Wow, pretty shocking but thats what the jury decided so i guess everyone should respect that BUT i still cant believe there are no repercussion in Florida for following/stalking someone, in a way provoking them and when caught on the receiving end just shooting and killing them.
Pretty dangerous president to set in my opinion. There should have been at least "some" consequence for such actions. My prayers to the family who lost a young kid and now must be feeling pretty let down by the justice system.
Now if in Florida just make sure to not fight back if someone provokes or hits you (they might be packing)............ unless you got a gun yourself, in which case then just shoot their ass and claim you were standing your ground. :/

Don't over think it. The punk thought he'd build up some street thug creds at zimmerman's expense and it backfired on him. Good job Zimmerman stopping the future Trayvon Martin crime wave
yay more guns!
POW! I felt threatened.
I'm surprised they let the guy off the hook, I mean he ain't exactly "white"
maybe with a Germanic sounding name, jury got confused...
Nice one Butch ... lol ...
To an earlier point, from a Globe article: "Authorities said in California media reports that some marchers in Oakland vandalized a police squad car and police formed a line to block some demonstrators there. TV news helicopter footage showed some people trying to start fires in the street and spray painting anti-police graffiti. The demonstration followed a raucous but largely peaceful protest in San Francisco and another in Los Angeles. An Oakland police dispatch said about 100 people protested there but gave no word of any arrests."
Lot of people unhappy over the decision, which, bottom line, comes down to a legal one. Nothing to do with racism or gun control.
The Florida laws - albeit, the same ones that sent a woman to jail for 20 years for firing a "warning shot" in the direction of her former spouse, who'd been previously convicted of beating her - allowed for Zimmerman to beat the second-degree murder charge.
Zimmerman was not guilty under those laws. Period.
Unfortunate, definitely. Now cue the impending civil suit, which he will likely lose.
small point but it irks me when I see people use the terms incorrectly

It is sad that a young kid is dead, it is also sad that the victim chose to escalate the situation instead of saying please do call the police I am a house guest at my friends residence, here is the house number and phone number.
Once you escalate you are responsible for what ever happens as now the response is a mix of the other persons fears, physical capabilities, preconceived threat capabilities. Don't take a person to the ground and smack them as they don't know when you will stop, if you will stop or are you putting the other persons life at risk and once the roles are reversed and you become the aggressor it's not like a game of tag where you say your ''it''and the other person knows you have stopped.
