He walked.

A 10 p.m. verdict for George Zimmerman: Not Guilty.

Hard to believe but true.

Wow.

What is wrong with people?

Going to bed. Can’t compute this verdict. Need to be unconscious for a while.

Shaking-my-head,

Bex

    They didn’t have to prove whether a boy died, that was pretty obvious. What they had to prove was intent, and they couldn’t. Florida’s homicide laws has what’s called “excusable homicide” which is basically that things got out of control and someone died, no anger and no intent was there.

    Prosecutor was not prepared well enough. I hope Trayvon’s family files a civil suit but they probably don’t have the money to do so.

    From some of the social media comments Zimmerman better not rest to easy out on the streets.

    Ah, the land of the free. Gun nuts are free to shoot people to act our their insane fantasies. Freedom to walk around minding your own business, not so much.

    I also thought the 5 white jurors would make a big difference. It is the accused who has a right to a “jury of his peers” – and although George appears to me to be more Hispanic than anything, a jury of blacks, I feel, would be more the victim’s peers, and that’s not how our system is worded. Yes, I believe a jury of all blacks (look at O.J.) would have made a big difference. I feel for Trayvon’s family so much this morning.

    Now to listen to the analysis of the verdict… a lot of “I-told-you-so’s”.

    I guess the jury said there was reasonable doubt. And so he is not guilty. Hard to accept but we have no choice, and Zimmerman walks free while Trayvon is dead. Partly I blame the forensics people for not collecting evidence properly. I understand that 5 of the 6 jurors were white. I wonder if that made any difference.
