    Of course Zimmerman is an idiot, wanna be cop who killed a young man who never should have be stopped much less killed. But anyone who knows anything about the law knew that the prosecutor didn't prove the allegations.

    •  I disagree.I watched whole trial.GZ was not believ (10+ / 0-)

      able to me. His video and audio reports of the his version of the story did not make sense to me. Trayvon, after just buying skiddles and iced tea and who has been on the phone with Rachelle continuously asking about the Allstar game says "You are going to die tonight?!" Simply not believable. That GZ forgot one of three streets in his neighborhood. Not believable. That Travon circles his car and reached into his hoodie (?gun? and GZ STILL gets out of his car? Unbelievable. I do not know what I think of this jury but the OJ jury with their bags packed before the verdict was delivered, will go down in history as the dumbest jury every. The problem here was that the Prosecution was out lawyered. That was evident practically every day. Poor Trayvon. 16 years 21 days and dead.  

      •  But even if he's lying (0+ / 0-)

        the affirmative evidence is weak.  I think the case was irreversibly botched by failing to interview the girlfriend before she saw the case on television.

        I want to see Snowden get a fair trial, an impartial jury, and the same sentence James Clapper gets for lying to Congress.

        No jury will acquit a Black person who uses SYG or self-defense when killing a White person. No way!
        However, the jury will believe any White person who uses SYG, even if she/he is lying, when killing a Black kid.

        And this is 2013! Not 1873! I start to believe that slavery ended because Europe started boycotting American products. The Union/North had to do something.

        Why wasn't any Black jurors? They can't be fair? Have we ever had an "All Black" jurors in America...ever? They don't know how serve justice? Just because there was no Men on the jury, it doesn't mean that Blacks should be eliminated.

          Sure, they will. The black guy in that video killed a white man in a police station parking lot in front of kids. A jury in the state of Arkansas found him not guilty of second degree murder.

          •  "One" acquittal, out of many "Guilty" cases? (0+ / 0-)

            How many Blacks are behind bar, if you use a ratio to compare? I am sure you don't want to know.

            Where is the outrage? Where are the same-sex activists who compared their struggle to Black activism?  

            You would expect them on the streets by now, right? Where they fighting for equal rights under the law?
