“Remember on Obama's first term he promised us change. Well he didn't say change for the worse. I think he surpassed Bush's disapproval record. In the private sector he would be fired but we're stuck with him for three more years.”

“I believe Zimmerman got away with murder. This 17 year old boy was just minding his own business walking home from a convinence store. Zimmerman was told to stand down and not follow Martin but he wanted to play policeman and he bit off more than he could chew when Martin stood up to him. I feel bad for the Martin family and I pray for peace in this Florida town.You don't have to be black to be disapointed by this verdict, I'm not.”

“I believe Zimmerman got away with murder.

You believe that because your are ignorant of the law and let the TV commentors brainwash you.”

TimeToWakeUp777 on Jul 14, 2013 at 09:55:49

“I have read through these posts and am amazed at the ignorance that permeates the majority of them. It seems like everything today is a contest with two separate factions pulling for sides. You can spin it any way you want, along with your bias conspiracy theories. Simple fact is that you are innocent until proven guilty. The state armed with a multitude of resources was not able, and did not prove him to be guilty. The level of understanding goes beyond the level of being able to spell correctly, which more than half of these posters have demonstrated they cannot do. Unfortunately, it is just another indicator of where the culture and values of this country has gone to. Hopefully, one day people will wake up and put a stop to the path that we are on. While the death of the young man is a tragedy, take a moment to reflect and look around to what we have become and put your energies and passion to work repairing that.”

jebby1 on Jul 14, 2013 at 09:35:04

“Did you see the evidence presented at the trial?

There was NO evidence to support what you said. Justice is about reason replacing racist attitudes. I likewise feel very sorry for the Martins. Why did Martin assume that Zimmerman had intended to harm him? GZ was simply trying to account for a suspicious stranger walking around his neighborhood. That's reasonable. Why did Martin attack Zimmerman. All the evidence supports that he did. There was 45+ seconds of screaming. Why do you think it's ok to attack someone you believe is following you?”

SUP WALLY on Jul 14, 2013 at 09:34:34

“You also don't have to be a cop to ask why someone is walking around your community.

And if you are an innocent "17 year old boy" who is "minding his own business," you also don't have to physically attack an adult, as Zimmerman's story goes.

Could Zimmerman have avoided the confrontation? Of course. Could Trayvon have avoided it, as well? Definitely.”

“If a person is following from a safe, non-threatening distance and posing no threat then what TM did was not "stand up to him"! TM, with drugs in his blood stream, decided to attack GZ and break his nose while bashing his head into the concrete. His actions caused his death.
If you want to pray... pray that God is merciful when judging TM.”

KC-CAJUN on Jul 14, 2013 at 09:15:02

“It is sad, very sad, that a 17-year-old teenager is dead. But you can't dismiss all the evidence and circumstances and state that someone got away with murder. It was more than just minding his own business walking home from a store. When you suspect someone is up to no good, you call the authorities and not take them on yourself if possible. Zimmerman should have waited in his car, and Martin should have called the police and reported Zimmerman for stalking, not started a fistfight. Senseless tragedy.”

“If there is a reasonable doubt then how can you can convict him of anything?”

sailor7379 on Jul 12, 2013 at 15:31:59

“To establish involuntary manslaughter, the prosecutor must show that the defendant acted with "culpable negligence." Florida statutes define culpable negligence as a disregard for human life while engaging in wanton or reckless behavior. The state may be able to prove involuntary manslaughter by showing the defendant's recklessness or lack of care when handling a dangerous instrument or weapon, or while engaging in a range of other activities that could lead to death if performed recklessly. Was following TM reckless?
Florida state laws also establish involuntary manslaughter if the prosecutor shows that the defendant used excessive force during self-defense or the defense of another person. Is shooting someone who much larger and stronger than you, who broke your nose with a sucker punch and is now banging your head on a sidewalk reckless? Answer those questions and you arrive at a verdict.
