He followed a kid when he was told not to and the kid of dead. That's on Zimmerman...
    establishing why it went wrong is a bit easier than determining intent. did Zimmerman intend to shoot the kid? did Martin intend to kill Zimmerman while he had the upper hand? hard to prove either of those things. which is why it would be hard to prove Zimmerman was guilty at all. color does not matter in this case.

    As far as the outcome of the trial whoever turned it into a physical confrontation was wrong. I don't know who that was. The guilt for what happens after the verdict belongs to the media for making it something it wasn't. I wish people would make their judgments on these things before they hear the color of the skin of the people involved.

    Yes. O'mara waived his 'stand your ground' hearing. If convicted they will have one after the trail. This is self defense, separate from stand your ground.

    Not guilty.
    but when the trumpets blew again and the knights charged, the name they cried was "Stannis! Stannis! STANNIS!"

    Geraldo Rivera: George Zimmerman Jury Would Have Killed Trayvon Martin Too

    The State should have been more prepared to argue the manslaughter charge at closing. Argue that Zimmerman intended to follow and confront Trayvon, which the police would have to testify is the last thing you want a neighborhood watch person to do, so that Zimmerman acted recklessly in following Trayvon. The State could then focus on the act being neither justified nor excusable. The State had a shot and blew it.

    Yep. Still can't believe the state initially went for a murder 2nd. The judge gives them a huge break by allowing the jury to consider manslaughter and the state doesn't take advantage of it. Personally, unless the decision came from on high, I think the state should of tried for manslaughter from the get go and try to establish that Zimmerman acted recklessly in following and approaching Martin. I still think it would of been a tough sell but it was the only chance they had.

    Everyone needs to zimmer down here.

    I'm thankful that I live in a country where we have to prove beyond reasonable doubt that one is guilty rather than just convicting people with our emotions.
