george zimmerman found not guilty trayvon martin trial

Shocking. Absolutely shocking.

The jury in the George Zimmerman case has rendered a NOT GUILTY verdict of second-degree murder in the sad fatal shooting of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin.

The 6-women jury deliberated for 16 hours and 20 minutes over a span of two days before they finally reached their verdict just a few moments ago.

They had been given the chance to convict Zimmerman of manslaughter, but decided not to despite their earlier request for a clarification of the charge earlier in the evening.

Zimmerman had pleaded not guilty, claiming he shot the unarmed teen in self defense.

Wow…

    In japan, people could walk anywhere they could feel safe you know why their government will protect. i feel it is stupid to use a gun for protection. the government should be protected you. It's like the Yoshihiro Hattori case. ( if you don't know this case look it up). America Sucks and every other country knows it. A white man killed a Japanese exchange student while the exchange student was trick or treating. in the end the white man got not guilty for killing him. The exchange student didn't try to fight him or do anything to the white man, he got shot for no apparent reason.that was Bullshit. and one Japanese commentator said "But now, which society is more mature? The idea that you protect people by shooting guns is barbaric. that's why i believe we don't need gun for protection. it should be banned.

    Re: Khorn – Actually this verdict has little to do with guilt or innocence. All this means is that the prosecution didn't prove their case. It does not mean that Zimmerman did not stalk and intentionally kill an unarmed black teen. Did OJ's acquittal in the eyes of the masses mean that he was "innocent"? Same thing applies here. Pudgy was in the right state at the right time.

    Re: KC – 911 is common sense and im not taking either side like i said it could have been handled way better on both parts…i was born and raised in FL and recently moved to NC but I still kept up with the trial and it just should have been handled better both way

    Re: Mary Johnson – You mean the way White America lost their minds when OJ was acquitted? When Black people can refuse to hire whites, refuse to admit them into schools or allow them to rent apartments that will be the day when Blacks exhibit "racism". Racism and dislike/distrust are not the same thing. Read a book.

    Your a unarmed person walking to a friend's house
    You see a strange person following you, you keep your head down keep it moving cause maybe it's coincidences
    The unknown that's following you call's 911 and tells them their following you and they tell you not to but you do it anyway
    Unknown approach's you for no reason and you defend yourself
    Unknown underestimates you because now your fighting for your life
    Unknown shots you for defending yourself against the unknown.
    Guess that's ok in today's America

    The one thing that got me during this whole debacle was how they played the racist card. 1) George Zimmerman is hispanic and 2) Racism isn't a big problem anymore because the racist that are out there are VERY few. It offends me when I here things like this. You people make it out to be like all white people are racist. I am as white as can be and I live in the south and some of the greatest people I know are black. They are closer to me than some white people I know. This case had nothing to do with race. What this case comes down to is if it was self defense and I believe it was. So for anyone out there who thinks that white people are racist, take a step back and really look. There are people out there feeding you crap, because the only racists I know are really old people who where raised in the early to mid 1900's.

    Of course he's guilty !!!! Is a 17 year old really stronger than a 29 year old? Was the argument really that bad that he had to shoot him ?? Wtf ?? Why not shoot him in the leg. And leave ….. Why shoot him in the heart and kill him ??? This is so sad. :(

    if that was the full story that would be unbelievable… but you left out she went to his home, then left, went to her car and got a gun, then went back and shot the gun in view of her kids…. plays out differently with more facts given doesn't it?

    Re: Taryn
    When's the last time you've been followed by someone, dear? I mean, really followed, and not just assuming you were. Don't give me any jibber jabber about common sense. Fight or flight responses usually takes over common sense a lot of times.

    Re: Kittens With Mittens – You make no sense. This has everything to do with race. WAKE UP If it was the other way around. Trayvon would have been in jail with no questions asked. ASKS YOURSELF WHY DID ZIMMERMAN GET OUT OF THE CAR? HE ALREADY CALLED THE COPS. AND THEY TOLD HIM TO STOP FOLLOWING HIM. AND IF YOU LISTENED TO THE POLICE TAPE. ZIMMERMAN CALLED TRAYVON A RACIAL SLUR. I CANT WAIT TO ZIMMERMAN PAY FOR WHAT HE DID. THAT NO GOOD MAN HAS GOTTEN AWAY WITH SO MUCH. BEATING HIS GIRL FRIEND,HITTING A COP, TOUCHING HIS LITTLE COUSIN, NOW KILLING THIS BOY. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME A BLACK MAN KILLED A WHITE MAN AND WALKED FREE??????????????? NEVER WAKE UP THIS HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH RACE.

    At the end of the day, as much you people deny it, race did play a part of it, however big or small. Apart from that, George Zimmerman should have received some jail time because he did MURDER an unarmed kid. He should have stayed in his car like the operator had instructed and this entire thing could have been avoided. No, his meddling ass had to get out of the vehicle and confront Trayvon Martin, which I'm pretty sure he did in an aggressive way. The police were on their fucking way. His actions were not called for. The injuries he had sustained were NOT life threatening. He could have gotten away. He claims Trayvon threatened him. He's lying. He also wasn't the one screaming on the recording. This trial was unfair and unbalanced. Open your eyes people. Minus race from the equation and do the fucking Math. He's guilty.

    Re: Mary Armstrong – SHUT UP YOU WHITE DUMB ASS.YOU SOUND LIKE A DUMB BITCH. HE CALLED THE COPS AND THEY TOLD HIM NOT TO FOLLOW HIM. BUT HE DID AND HE GOT OUT HIS CAR. HE EVEN SAID A RACIAL SLUR ABOUT THE BOY WHILE HE WAS ON THE PHONE WITH THE COPS. THIS WOULD HAVE NEVER HAPPENED IF THAT FAT PIG WOULD HAVE KEPT HIS ASS IN THE CAR. I WISH TRAYVON HAD A GUN ON HIM THAT DAY

    Good to know that this is what constitutes justice in America. If this piece of shit racist would've done as he was told and sat his fat ass in his vehicle until the police came, none of this would've happened. But obviously he had the right to shoot an unarmed boy walking down the street because of all the crime happening in his neighborhood…. Wait a second… I must've picked up some ridiculous opinion from the many idiots posting here. He'll get what he deserves and I hope his life is a living hell until he dies.

    I watched the trial, worked on my impartiality, because the media had me convinced Zimmerman was guilty. The not guilty verdict was the correct verdict. 6 jurors gave up 3 wks of their lives, sequestered, and followed the letter of law. They do not deserve this! Everyone keeps screaming that Trayvon was unarmed! As George was being beaten by Trayvon, did HE know he was unarmed? Perez, you and media need to stop inciting the public! Justice was served. Maybe if Trayvon had dialed 911 instead of that girl, if he was worried. George Zimmerman did not attack him!

    not shocking at all. justice prevailed. if you paid attention to the case you moron, you would have come to the conclusion (that is if you had half a brain) that this case should have never come to trial. what a joke.

    Re: rachy

    Actually for someone claiming people don't know their facts - it was GZ who had MMA training, he had been going for 3x a week for 8 months - they even called his MMA trainer to the stand. Methinks you didn't watch the trial as you claim. Martin had no professional fighting training, he was a very skinny guy (6 feet and 158 lbs) and outweighed by GZ and the only evidence the defense could find as to Martin's supposedly superior physical prowess was that he played football in middle school. You are a joke - stop being so angry about people not knowing their facts and get the facts yourself.

    Re: angiethia

    I have always thought this. Zimmerman admitted he never identified himself - here he is following Martin on a dark night, he could have yelled out "What are you doing here I am neighborhood watch!" He had plenty of time while following him - but no instead he got into Martin's personal space - close enough for Martin to punch him if you believe GZ's final version of the story for trial. I have been followed in the dark late at night by a strange man in his car who pursued me on foot, luckily I got to my house first, but if he had gotten close enough you bet your ass I would have punched him and defended myself with everything physically I had in me. How many people would assume in GZ following them at night that GZ was just a good samaritan - NO ONE - if you are followed by a stranger at night in an empty space that WON'T identify themselves that is threatening. Would I have responded like Martin - yes - would I have ignored a 911 operator and approached someone I thought was dangerous - NO - and if in some crazy world if I did get out of my car I would definitely identify myself from a distance because I would know how my actions of following/stalking that if they were even done with good intentions could be perceived as threatening and I would try to assess the situation from a distance - like a true law enforcement officer does.

    Re: richsp

    No one protests black on black crimes because 1) they get arrested immediately (if you are a black mother in Chicago and everyone knows who shot your son that person is arrested immediately - not in 40 days) and 2) the conviction rate for blacks is astronomically high (there are many reasons as to why this is - but you don't find too many black men who killed an unarmed child walking free) - even in FL where stats have been released that if you are a black person claiming self defense against a white person you most certainly are going to jail (especially if you are a black woman), however if you are a white man who kills a black man you get off around 60% of the time.

    Re: Bubblez – Well first of all, he's not a 30-something year old man. That shows how much you have actually paid attention to this. Have you seen the picture of Trayvon at a convenience store before all of that went down? Trayvon wasn't a small guy. The picture that the media fed off of made TM look like a small, young boy who wouldn't have been able to harm a fly. GZ was pinned by TM to the ground getting his ass whooped. Zimmerman's last line of defense was his gun. Someone else said that GZ should have shot him somewhere where it wouldn't have killed Trayvon…yeah..thats another stupid, ridiculous comment. I'm sure GZ had plenty of time to properly step back away from TM, aim to a non lethal section, and tell Trayvon to stand still so he could fire a non lethal shot. Dumbasses. This was during a fight…and i'll bet that if Trayvon Martin would have had time, or the chance, he most likely would have taken the gun from GZ and used it. We'll never know of GZ actually shot to kill, but my opinion is that it was probably just a shot fired to end the madness, and it ended up killing Trayvon. Where GZ went wrong was ignoring the 911 Operator's order and not staying in his vehicle. But ignoring a 911 operator doesn't constitute jail time, nor does is it even a crime. The jury rendered the correct verdict in this case. I think if the prosecution would have come out with the manslaughter case right away, Zimmerman would have gone to prison though.

    First off, true Perezhilton fans wouldn't pull the race card period. Race should never be involved. Writing things like "cracker" or "coon" isn't necessary. It's obvious who the bullies are on this site. Second, I have to say this news isn't shocking it's mainly devasting for me. My heart is heavy for Trayvon's parents. Hopefully they find comfort in the fact that the entire country understands their pain. This case has touched many hearts, and their son will never be forgotten.
