What's even worse is that I personally feel like this wasn't necessary. This shouldn't have been this huge in the media. Extremely rarely is a murder of any kind as huge as this one in the media. People kill other people every day for stupid reasons. It's a shame every time, don't get me wrong, and it really would be nice if the killing would stop, but I really do feel like this was blown WAAAAAYYY out of proportion.

A little media coverage would be okay, but nothing this massive should've happened.

This should never even have gone to trial. The police figured out right away that it was self-defense, plain and simple, but the angry mob just had to go and pitch a hissy-fit over it. And the authorities caved to said hissy-fit. And now more than a year later, everybody finally gets to hear what the people who had all the facts from the very beginning knew all along. The police of Sanford deserve a big apology right now.

Does it make me an awful person that I'm more interested in hearing the outcome from the people that wanted Zimmerman guilty.

I hate how this trial has been presented based on race by the media. I'm going to stay away from the new's for quite some time. Nothing about this will bring any solace to either side in the long run.

Blacks now actually think their own racist is more racist then other Americans.

The issue with this is that it's done by a conservative polls group. On the other hand the are not extremist and are more believable then other conservative groups and some liberal groups too.

Wow really? I can't and won't speak for other African Americans but as one I am definitely offended by this. How exactly does having Obama in office for a second term cancel it out?

both of them are idiots. zimmerman shouldn't have left his car and trayvon shouldn't have done what he did to cause zimmerman to shoot him. just unfortunate how it turned out.

well that will probably escalate quickly sadly enough. in these situations no matter which way the verdict goes people are always normally outraged to the point of doing something foolish

Exactly. Someone made a stupid mistake and the stupidity just snowballed into national scale.

Nobody is saying he didn't have a right to protect himself but he shouldn't even followed Trayvon in the first place. He was told by the police to wait until they came but he took matters into his own hands. And Trayvon's ended up dead because of it. was it Trayvon fault that he died?

" innocent" is not a word i would use,its a fact that Zimmerman killed Travyon. if someone was following me for no apparent reason ( at night mind you ) I would attack the crap out of that person following me.


Maybe innocent was the wrong word to use, what I should've said was he was justified in defending himself. It's terrible that someone had to die, but such is the way of life, always has been. Personally, if someone was following me at night, there's no way I'd ever attack first, simply because it's not self defense. I would've kept on my way to my dad's house or my friends, wherever he was going, there seems to be a tons of different stories. Only way I'd ever fight back is if I was in fear of losing my life, which is exactly what Zimmerman did.
