What lessons did Zimmerman learn from this case? Zimmerman said in his 911 call, "They always get away, these guys always get away". Well, Zimmerman you got away this time! #ZimmermanGotAway
Six women jurors in Florida found 29 year old George Zimmerman not guilty of murder neither nor man slaughter in the killing of 17 year old Trayvon Martin.
Yesterday, I was just about to head for dinner then I see Zimmerman NOT GUILTY on CNN! This ruined my lovely night. It bothers me that Zimmerman followed Trayvon, carried a gun and takes no responsibility for killing Trayvon. I respect the verdict but I disagree with it.
I am not trying to pull the "race card" but this case has racial undertones. We must be honest that race was a factor in this trial. A black boy cannot get a snack and come home safe?
I am heartbroken but I look forward to discussing this case further with my youth group as they were passionate and following this trial as well. We are all from diverse ethnic backgrounds and disagree with the verdict.
Zimmerman was not a victim in my opinion. This is not a self-defense case. I believe that Trayvon was defending himself and had no choice but to fight for his life...a stranger followed and attacked him.
I do not support the Stand Your Ground Law. It does not protect innocent victims. It seems bias and mostly benefits a certain group of people.
I feel that Zimmerman made false assumptions of Trayvon based on his race and decided to follow him because he felt Trayvon was suspect. Racial profiling and the wrong assumptions caused Zimmerman to murder Trayvon. I also believe this case was based on money. Zimmerman was able to afford a great defense team. It hurts me that the criminal justice system treats black males differently. This is proven in history and is a fact. We must improve the system.
Trayvon is no longer here to share his side of the story. We lost a son and a brother. My heart goes out to the Martin family. Thanks to everyone who continued to support Trayvon and his family. #JusticeforTrayvon
