Lol if I were zimmerman I'd rather be in custody considering how the media has portrayed this case, so many people want his head right now and know where he is, it'd just be safer to have police around him.

Surprised it wasn't posted on here but I found what NBC did a few weeks ago pretty damn funny, they essentially edited the phone call zimmerman had with the 911 operator to push the racist envelope

Went from
Quote:
Zimmerman said, "This guy looks like he's up to no good. Or he's on drugs or something. It's raining and he's just walking around, looking about."
The 911 officer responded saying, "OK, and this guy is he black, white or Hispanic?"
"He looks black," Zimmerman said.
To
Quote:
This guy looks like he's up to no good he looks black."
In no way am I backing this guy up for what he did, just a reminder that we need to be careful about how the media interprets things.

Zimmerman is not guilty, simple as that. He's still innocent.
And from the looks of it all, it looks like it was self defense.

he probably will be found innocent, but only because of the way the stand your ground law works. The way i understand it, you can basically just pick a fight, shoot the guy, and then say you were scared he was going to hurt you.

Its not the cops faults either, theyre just enforcing the law as written. But if/when this guy is found innocent, theres gonna be a fuckin riot.

WOW, I wonder when the riots will start...

George Zimmerman found not guilty - World - CBC News
Quote:
George Zimmerman was acquitted of all charges on Saturday for the fatal shooting of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin in this central Florida town in February of last year.

If he had been convicted, the 29-year-old former neighborhood watch volunteer, who claimed he acted in self-defense, could have been sentenced to life in prison for second-degree murder or up to 30 years for manslaughter.

A panel of six women jurors rendered its verdict in the case, which sparked a national debate on issues including race and profiling, after a trial that began in Seminole County court on June 10.

LOL if any of you actually listened to the trial you would know he is not guilty, and it was self defense.

This didn't even need to go to trial in the first place, only reason was because of race.

not guilty of 2nd degree murder certainly there isn't enough evidence there to convict him of that, manslaughter on the other hand was always a possibility




god i hate the DA wasn't involved in the case at all and here she is acting like she's the shit in the press conference

It was a weak case to begin with, not surprised he got off. Even if he got convicted they would have appealed it and probably got the charges thrown out.

And the judge in this case did all she could to try to give the state bit of an edge by not allowing evidence that would have ended this case in the first day for the defense but even that couldn't help the state.

In a country where they couldn't even convict Casey Anthony, this doesn't surprise me...

USA=stiff penalty but hard to convict
Canada=light penalty easy to convict

What did you guys think of the 911 audio where someone was screaming "Help!!". I'm leaning towards the fact that Zimmerman was the victim yelling "Help!!".

This was a media case, pure and simple.

The Martin family had a few of the regular players get involved(*cough* Jesse Jackson) early and started pumping it to media.

Remember there were pictures where Trayvon had his skin lightened to look more white, and NBC is editing phone calls to make it sound like Zimmerman said he was up to no good...and black.

This shit isn't real. This is media looking for ratings, and people looking for revenge based on shit law.

Put the law on trial! If your state has a law that says you are cool to chase a guy through a complex and then claim that you were standing your ground when you shot him...change that law! Change any blanket laws that involve shooting people. You want self-defence to be a thing? then describe self-defence. You want people to know this shit when they buy a gun so they don't cap black kids with skittles then get your shit together and change gun laws. There is a difference between gun laws that outlaw guns and gun laws that teach people, "here are the 50 things that you need to know to keep your white/black/purple ass out of jail when you fire a weapon. Let's start with #1 guys, we have a lot of this shit to go through"

Maybe we shouldn't be selling hand guns at fucking Kmart. Maybe that's an issue.

Out of the many issues in this case, the one that concerns me the least...THE FUCKING LEAST is that the kid was black and shot by a hispanic guy. Shitty? Fuck yes. But we can't change it any time soon. Would he have shot the kid if he was white? Maybe not. Who knows. But let's be real. This guy was NOT alone in his thought patterns.

No, the part that concerns me is bad law based on some senator wanting to get re-elected and whipping up a shit bill that opens up the question of grey areas on shooting.

Let's have Fox&Friends actually give a fuck on that issue.
