This is justice. This case was tried fairly in a court of law, judged by a jury of peers, both the prosecution and defense had the opportunity to present both their cases and witnesses, and George Zimmerman was found to be not guilty...this is justice. You may or not like the outcome, but Zimmerman is judged not guilty of a crime...period.  As for myself, based upon my understanding of the law and facts of the case, the judgement was a correct verdict. +11

Let just say it was you who were walking in the rain and a grown man is following you who is about a 100lbs bigger than you. Wouldn't you be scared or nervous as a 17 year old? If a strange man approach you asking question harassing you wouldn't be a little on edge , its dark and raining outside just you and a strange man following you that's a kids nightmare. Any race , creed or color can understand a kid being afraid and fighting a stranger stalking them. If anyone is a thug it would be Zimmerman who was attempting to be a police and not listening to the dispatcher to stay in his car. The police were on there way, standing your ground is not chasing and harassing a kid. +8

The people calling GZ a dead man are the dumbest ones here. Just because you don't like the verdict doesn't allow people to act like vigilantes. We all know he killed the kid. Hey was protecting himself. Now if one of you bright people have a video of the actual shooting that showes it was not self defense then maybe I will believe you. But the jury found him not guilty and we need to accept that. Maybe we should turn to Trayvon's parents? Maybe if they had more control over there soon this also wouldn't have happened.+4

Hindsight is always 20/20.
Did GZ know Travon was a teenager that night? Need you be reminded that 6 jurors decided the outcome not just a prejudice person against a teen of color. The defensive team just did a better job than the prosecution did. Their job was to place uncertainty in the jurors and they did just that.
Travis Bromell9 months ago
That some bullshit
Kimberly Hipps9 months ago
Zimmerman did not pursue Trayvon. Zimmerman was walking back to his Car, thats when Trayvon PROVOKED the fight, he punched him on the nose, then proceeded to beat his head into the concrete, the creepy ass white cracker probably did not care what color his hands were. One slam against the concrete, could cause a cerebral hemorrhage, blunt force trauma, death.
The Martin Family has received over a Million Dollars from the Homeowners Society, they waisted no time to profit from this tragedy. (I would have probably done the same)
Not allowed in court, George Zimmerman said He looks like he is on drugs, yes THC was found in his system. His text messages showed a propensity towards fighting and violence, also not allowed in court. The prosecution just did not have the evidence to show this was anything but self defence.
With all that commen sense, Trayvon was 6ft2 and weighed 180 pounds. A kid in a Man's body.
I do feel sympathy, for the Martin Family, they seemed like great Parents, the tragedy is Trayvon is dead, so sad, no one wins.+6

It's "this is the way I think it should be, so that's what side I'm on". Check some facts and open your mind. It's so easy to spot who I'm talking about, especially 'cuz it's about 80% of you.+4

Kimberly Hipps9 months ago
Again, Zimmerman went back to his car, there was a four minute gap, you would know that if you watched the trial, during those four minutes Trayvon followed Zimmerman to the car, Trayvon punched Zimmerman in the face, then proceeded with the concrete banging. Zimmerman did not run down a Child, with skittles and just shoot him. He obeyed orders, Trayvon should have walked home, I guarantee you he would have ran home, if he knew Zimmerman had a gun. That fact alone should tell you, Zimmerman did not approach him in a hostile manner, he was the neighborhood Security Watch. Strange guy, unknown to the neighborhood, he was doing his job. You people missed the crucial part, Zimmerman did retreat to his car, only to be met by a stoned Trayvon, with a known propensity of violence. Later shown on his texts messages, that were inadmissible in court.+4

Justice has been delivered ! Nw we should investigate and put on trial those in the justice Department that tried to influence this trial by setting up funding and providing security for anti Zimmerman protests before the trial. What I have learned from to trial is that the only time the black community cares about black men being shot is when non black men are defending themselves , doing the shooting. I have learned the seething hatered black folks have for white people. I always knew it, we will go forward as a country that is as divided as it can get . Yes it is sad that Trayvon is dead, he shouldn't have jumped Zimmerman and began bouncing his head off the pavement . It ignorant pablum about Trayvon being some nice young kids who isn't aggressive at all is laughable on its face. The liberal media , Barack Obama , Eric Holder and the black community that is steeped in racism against white people should be ashamed of themselves for the way they acted during this trial .+4

But in addition.. I feel bad. The boy didn't have to die. Even if he was putting a beat down on Zimmerman and he WAS afraid for his life, shoot in the air or at worst case his leg or something.

This should of went to a grand jury. Not a bunch of Paula Deens(very smart decision by defense).

A lot of hearsay in this posting even in the trial only two people knew what happened that night from the moment Zimmerman hung up his phone til he killed trayvon one was dead the other didn't testify huge admission of guilt but the prosecution didn't bring it up once.

The moment this trial started it was fairly obvious that the prosecution was a dumptruck.

this civil case will destroy George Zimmerman financially for the rest of his life.+1

...one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for some.  This is the outcome that I have come to accept being a black american it is always guilty until proven innocent for us.  We were never looked at as 100% humans let alone 100% citizens we were imported to this country as cattle to perform and be treated as such.  Once one of the cattle displayed a free spirit or ran away they stalked and killed or brought back to the slave owner.  Sound familiar to what happened to Trayvan?  Zimmerman is fulfilling an American legacy and re-educating the people on the true status of a black american.  I haven't played a day of football in my life, but whenever I meet someone new I'm always asked if I used to play due to my physical build we (Black Americans) tend grow larger and more muscular than any all other races aside from Africans.  This is one of the reasons that the European American and Native American (Civilized Tribes) chose to enslave the Africans.  Sure Trayvan was adult height which is the exact reason why Zimmerman (which is a German name) shouldn't have approached him.  I'm not saying that the verdict that was reached was wrong, I'm saying that from the day that Trayvan was born he never stood a chance at justice and that is every arena not just the legal system.  Just as I have to work harder than my co-workers to receive an equal grade this injustice is at the root of our country it is what is was established on.  Have you ever seen an oak tree seedling take root and then produce wall nuts?  This is the fruit that America was meant to produce since it took root.  It's not a white and black thing it is a black thing and it is the recessive fear of the dominant.  When in all scientific reality the dominant only wants to share it's traits via osmosis.  For once in my life I would like to be understood before feared, but since I know this will never happen I present my body language in a manner that can't be misconstrued as threatening.  I'm teaching my children the same so that they can get a closer chance at a fair shake than I can, so while we can't change the roots of this country we can adapt to survive.+3

Zimmerman may not have Criminal Intent for Contemplated Murder... but ALL his actions led up to an unarmed human death that night.+3

+sean hartnett Good point about a jury made up of mostly "Paula Deens". They weren't very smart, and neither was the prosecution.

I am appalled at the number of people (on both sides) who know very little about this case, other than the names of the defendant and the person who was killed. Shocked that you can honestly form a guilty or innocent "verdict" on a case you obviously know nothing about. I pray the majority of you do not ever get put on a jury.

Unarmed.... I know people who got worse for a fist fight.... not guilty. nothing. No reprimand at all for killing an unarmed minor.  Good verdict. Excellent precedent.

Well things like this happen all the time every where the jury was all mothers and the facts are George didn't just shoot him In his mind on his back with a 17 year old on him beating him no-one their to help him get trayvon off he pulled the trigger he didn't just get out of his car and shoot him travon confronted him he wouldnt of got shot if he would if made the decision to keep walking home so it's on both of them for bad decisions made
And at 17 years old he's not just a teenager and why does it always have to be about color of skin everytime someone dies that's black no matter who kills them the race card always get thrown out there right now on the news black power signs come on who's racist +2

We always talk about Kids & how they can't make Adult Choices yet. Martin was 17 A Kid..Sewer Scum Z was 28... He did make a bad choice, He knew to Stalk a kid was wrong  from the start...We do have stalking laws...When a 28 yr old kills a 17 yr old they should not get off without some penalty.
I can't blame the news out lets I blame the society ... We all knew from the start this was because Martin was Black.. When this happens we try to find any other excuse, but that truth. I always said this was a Show Trail & that creature would walk...

+Rob Marks it doesn't matter if we have a black president! Don't you get it? Racism is still alive and flourishing. This whole trial is bringing out the worst in people because of these photos being circulated of Trayvon with his gold teeth, with his weed, throwing up the middle finger. The media is fear-mongering, and everyone is falling for it. It's bringing up the fear of "other" and making us want to stay within our "group." Just because we have a black president doesn't mean all of that just disappears.
