I tried to keep up with the trail and given the evidence that I heard I believe the jury reached the correct conclusion. This was a tragedy that probably ruined two lives.

Yeah...Zimmerman's life will never be the same either. There's another post with comments about this trial

I'm not surprised. I knew he wouldn't be convicted because the police refused to arrest him in the first place...They have a lot of nut jobs in Florida (no disrespect to some of the people who unfortunately live there). It's they same state that didn't convict Casey Anthony for killing her baby. Not to mention they can't even count ballots!

    Casey guilt wasn`t that she killed her daughter, it was involvement after her father let the child drown, anyone can see that, except the prosecution.

Really did not follow the case that closely.

Unfortunately, I knew he would not be convicted.  Just following the rule of law they could not prove anything without a reasonable doubt.    The entire thing is so sad.  It seems like he should get something against him for not following what the police told him.  One life ended and all his family and friends lives changed forever, the the killer will have to live with consequences from it forever.

It's not really surprising...from the beginning it seemed kinda clear he wouldn't (and shouldn't) be convicted. Yes, this is the same state that allowed CA to go free, but they're not comparable. Same with OJ case - yes, similar results, but different issues at play.

I say bravo to a jury who knew how to decipher the evidence (or lack thereof) and come out with a justified verdict.  I do feel the pain of Trayvon's parents and hope they will be able to be consoled through their faith in God.  The loss of a child, no matter what the circumstances, is never easy for any parent.

We were not there.  We do not know what happened.  We have his word against a dead man's.  Only they know what really happened.  There is evil all around us and it makes me mad when a huge deal is made out of one case like this when there are thousands of others just like it that never get mentioned.  And I am so sick of hearing the racial thing it makes me want to scream!

It is a tragedy, nonetheless.  Zimmerman's smile says it all:  he killed a young, unarmed Black man and got off.  Of course, the NAACP is being swamped with telephone calls because, in my opinion, justice has not been served.  I still say he is guilty as sin:  There was not one Black juror at his trial and even the judge was White.  I think it is a tragedy that ruined Zimmerman's life and the family of Trayvon Martin is crying out for justice.  I hear that Florida is a racist state.  My granddaughters live there now.  That goes to show you that the police in Florida didn't want to arrest Zimmerman because, in their opinion, his actions took a young Black man off the streets.  I know that justice will be served one day when Zimmerman has to go in front of the man upstairs. ??? :o ??? :wave:

Not surprised at all. I hope this becomes federal because Florida constantly fails children and families.  Another thing I've found interesting is the comparison of the case of Marissa Alexander and the use of the Stand Your Ground law. Makes you wonder who it's really for. In my opinion, people want the right to pretend nothing is ever about race, class, gender or any intersection of those identities. People want the "freedom" to practice their bigotry without the backlash. It makes me sick. I really cannot get out of this country fast enough. *bleep* poor education, no justice.

I wonder how many of you were influnced by the news media and their biased reporting. Aimmerman was tried and convected by them. Thank heavens the jury heard all the evidence in the court room and used their judgement on this case, The defense were never given all of the information about the young man whom was shot. As far as the naacp they re now stirring the pot for trouble. All of this would not have been reported if it had been a white child shot by a man of color. The news media like stirring up trouble al of the time.

It's the verdict that should be.  Justice has been served.  It's over and we can all move on now.

this is a really deep dicussion lol I've read a few of the responses on here and in my opinion the verdict was wrong some may say it wasn't enough evidence but it was so much pointing towards him saying that he did kill an innocent young man out of spite not for self defense but like someone else said Florida can't even count its ballots so what could we have expected from this trial.
