Zimmerman should not have approached him flat out, how the fk you follow somebody and approach them, he clearly said "these assholes always think they can get away but not this time" he had every intention of stopping Trayvon the fact that he had a gun in my opinion is intent to kill somebody if you intentionally approach someone with a gun you meaning to do damage. yall missing the main point as to why alot of people are mad about this trial.. if he had just shot and killed the boy it would have been another tragedy but because of what zimmerman said is what made this case what it was, he racially profiled Trayvon. yall keep talking about zimmerman had the right to defend himself yet he went after trayvon, trayvon had skittles and a fkin arizona, he wouldnt looking for zimmerman, zimmerman went looking for him, after him, and profiled him as a suspicious character off of what he as wearing and what he looked like. thats what made this crime so bad, so yeah he shoulda got life and that bitch ass jury was a fkin set up cause its suppose to be a jury of yo peers yet there was not one african american up there just a bunch of white women who could honestly careless because it isnt their children and they probably dont even live around that area. He shot and killed a young boy because he suspected him of something not because trayvon attacked him. yall keep talking not enough thinking is going on here. but hey civil rights and federal court is a hard one to bite so i wanna see him smile after this.

Trayvons friends testimony was basically ignored the moment they caught her in her lies multiple times and under oath.

That site has alot more information that i do but basically she made a disaster of herself and of the prosecutors.


As I said " Her testimony counts as part of the picture as much as anything the guy trying to get off the hook has to say,"
She had someone write it for her. How does that make her a liar if she was dictating to them what to write? Anyone who dictates to a secretary what to write in a letter can claim to have written that letter even though it wasn't their hands physically doing the work. She was at least as credible as Zimmerman the guy who lied about not having money that he had and deliberately spoke in code to his wife about it while in jail thinking that noone would figure out what they were talking about. The guy who changed his own account of events several times, and even denied being the one screaming for help when first asked about it (saying it doesn't even sound like you when asked if it is you without immediately adding some sort of statement affirming that it was you despite that fact is denying that it's you) and then claimed it was him when later realizing that it would make him appear to be the victim if it was him. If she couldn't be found credible than Zimmerman's whole account shouldn't have been considered to have any weight.



Do you have proof he changed his story written or video evidence as i have provided because right now you are spouting facts with no references to prove it. I was watching the whole trial unfold and not once did she have a consistent story it changed at least 4 times when asked the same question. While his stayed valid almost the entire time.

What I don't really understand is how this incident became such a media circus to begin with. People are shot every day: people of every age and race, and under various circumstances. How did this case become so special? Maybe I'm just cynical after years in law enforcement, but seems like just another shooting to me.


The way I understand it, after gathering all the evidence, the police decided that Zimmerman shot Martin in self-defense and decided not to arrest him. Then a bunch of racemongers accused the police of just letting Zimmerman get away with it because Zimmerman was white and Martin was black (despite Zimmerman not being white). So Zimmerman then became a symbol of a perceived institutional racism in the justice system against black people, and this is why so many people irrationally hold such bitter, vicious hate for the man. And to other people, the case then became an example of innocent people being thrown under the bus for the sake of political correctness.

tl;dr: this case is all about the race card.

I am a Black American female and a mother of a 3 year old son and i don't want my son growing up scared to walk on these streets. I'm mad and seeing other people angry makes me even more angry. Knowing that this might be a racial thing makes me feel the anger of my people. Regardless of what it is, Zimmerman is forever guilty. Let me just say that that bulletproof vest is not going to save Zimmerman from whats coming his way now. I I I I I want to not kill him but to hit him with an aluminum baseball bat and play baseball with his face. I cant speak for everyone else cause some people want to kill him and Zimmerman might just.....

Is this really America? The land where you can get away with murder????? Apparently, you can murder black children and get away with it.....

Honestly I feel the verdict was unjust and a direct challenge to the black community in Florida. By letting that man go free they are basically saying, "STAY IN YOUR OWN LANE DARKIES".

Did you miss the other non-anime related threads? You are in the general section and there are tons of threads that spark debate. I would advise sticking to the manga and anime forums if you're bothered. I personally do not seek out upsetting threads to post in if I'm trying to escape.

This trial just shows how pathetically stupid people are. You all need to stop watching the NWO run media and live your damn lives.... I know im talking to government koolaid drinking sheep but you need to wake up and look around you. Everyday your constitution is being trampled on by OBUNGO and the NWO globalist, but nooo you got no time to think about that right? I GOTTA GO FIGHT ON THE INTERNET ABOUT SOME RACIST CIRCUS TRIAL.

IMO this is bullshit. Murder is murder, and no one deserves death before their time. But he'll get his, whether the judge gives it to him or not. I believe truth always prevails.

It's not murder when done in self defense. The court ruling was appropriate given the evidence. If Martin was on Zimmerman bashing him and pounding him into concrete then the killing was justified under self defense.

It's funny hearing about people crying about black children being killed by another race when the majority of blacks are being killed BY other blacks...

....yet many don't even blink an eye at that little tidbit.

Yes, because being beat up is the same as shooting someone. I don't really care what the court considers good reasoning - I'm saying it makes no sense.

Having your head bashed against concrete (which was Zimmerman's take on things) can kill you, using lethal force is appropriate to defend yourself in such situation. GZ was probably wrong to get out of his car and confront TM in the first place, but his shooting was done in self defense according to accounts and for that no penalty should be given. Trayvon was in the wrong to attack him like that.

To think that all of this could have been avoided had George listened to the 911 dispatcher or maybe if Martin realized George wasn't a danger to him initially(assuming George's story is true).

Both people in this situation had bad judgment that caused them to make bad decisions, George saw a potential criminal and Trayvon I'm assuming saw a mugger.

I didn't watch the trial so I don't know how exactly they came to that conclusion but from what I know it seems the jury made the best decision they could. Unfortunately Trayvon can't tell his side of the story so all we have to go on is George's claim of self defense.

Lastly although George won't be going to prison his life will never be the same, everyone in America knows who he is and alot of people are angry at him. Also if he has a conscience I'm sure that he feels some level of guilt for shooting Trayvon even if it was to save his own life.

According to the Florida statute, he was not guilty...
If he pulled a stunt like that in Washington or Oregon he'd be spending 10 or 15 years in jail, if not more.
