Most reasonable persons know that evidence is presented at trial, not here in a forum where people like you have absolutely no evidence but you have already made up your mind.
Might want to post that to zazz as she is the one leading the charge against Zimmerman with, as you point out, no evidence other than emotions.

There is ample "reasonable" doubt. The prosecutor over reached with the murder charge. Manslaughter would have been a more appropriate charge if any at all. No doubt political considerations played into what hewas ultimately charged with.
If you believe "stand your ground" is the law of the land as it is then no charges should have been filed.
But as we all know if no charges were filed the black community would have gone on a rampage burning down their own cities as they have done in the past.
Africans just don't seem to reason things out before they act. Like traygone attacking an armed man. I mean where did he think that was going?

No, not much has changed.
Thug Zimmerman STILL charged with Murder
Thug Zimmerman STILL lying.
Thug Zimmerman STILL hiding.
Thug Zimmerman STILL feeding off his slush fund.
Thug Zimmerman STILL wearing ankle bracelet.
Thug Zimmerman STILL cannot possess a gun.
Thug Zimmerman STILL has a criminal record.
Thug Zimmerman's father STILL coddling him.
Thug Zimmerman's lawyer is STILL not "pro bono".
Thug Zimmerman STILL killed Trayvon.
My My My
The seasons change but the Truth remains. Thanks for reminding us.
Any reasonable person can see Thug Zimmerman for what he is!
Criminal Zimmerman is freed but ain't free!
You are right not much has changed. Instead of the black community comming together and explaining why their children should not act like Traygone they are still trying to convince everyone trayvon was some kind of little kid that was murdered for no reason.
Why not explain what is acceptable behavior in society and what is not so fewer of their children will be buried?
The seasons indeed change but the truth remains:
Trayvon Martin, a un-ruly thug was buried by his own parents when the children are supposed to bury the parents.
The sadest thing I see here is posters like you trying to stir the pot of hatred when one life has already been lost.

Martin messed with the wrong person that night.

He should have been more careful and less suspicious while doing drug deals in and around a gated community..

His buddies at the 7-11 were gonna meet him but George cramp his style.

Oh well. Sometimes you gotta die before you ever get it right.

Self Defense.

Acquittal.

If there was ever a case that presented so much reasonable doubt it's this one for sure.

The states case is more than just weak.

It's a joke.

2 or 3 racists might hang the jury but George will still walk.

I don't believe the state is gonna want to prosecute him again.

The People of the State of Florida have had enough!

Just because more Blacks are in the criminal justice system DOESN'T mean Blacks commit more crime.
Many studies have documented this and many conservatives AGREE with this and have tried to address racial disparities in the criminal justice system.
So, that point you make is pointless. And when you look at percentages, you need to look far beyond the numbers. That's what we call critical thinking.
You can't buy it, nor cannot it be given to you.
You must Earrrrrrrrrrrrrrrn it...the old fashioned way!
Those republicans in Congress still sticking together to stick it to the American people? Oh YES they are. You people stick together no matter what! My my my!
Creepy Zimmerman is freed but he ain't free!
Oh yes it does, its a proven fact that blacks do commit much more crime than their percentage of the population. But you ghetto people are oblivious to that, and most always stick together no matter what. Your idea of 'critical thinking' is to ignore reality.

Every person on here who worships Zimmerman for murdering an unarmed child is a moronic idiot and a hater racist.
If you were not a racist you would not lie about Trayvon. You would not call him a criminal. You would not call him a racist. You lie, you lie, you lie.
You are a racist who doesn't have the spine to admit to it so you lie about it. Liar, liar, liar.
There you go again Zazzie, Trayvon was not a boy, but a juvenile delinquent.

None of us warship Zimmerman, he shouldn't have been out trying to play neighborhood do gooder. That is about the most stupid comment you have made.

The difference between you and me, is that I wish all good people well, and all bad people (like Trayvon) ill. It Trayvon had been some skin head or piece of white trash, my opinion would be the same, good riddance. But since Trayvon was one of your people, you and so many other blacks want to get Zimmerman out of revenge.

It ain't no lie, Trayvon was a doped up hooded street thug.

Of course, you talk the same old racist, racist, crap, like a lot of you people.

Martin asked for fight and he got one.

He certainly had a lot of balls!

That's what it takes to viciously attack somebody.

I think the boy had more balls than brains.

Martin was clean. He had nothing to be arrested for.

He sucker punched the wrong hombre.

Then he done gone and made an ash out of himself.

Poor basturd.

Too bad the governor and the state attorney got no balls.

If one of em would have had any balls the gangsters would have had they chimp and then had been arrested.

George gonna walk regardless.

But think he gonna have to pop another jitterbug before this thing is over.

HA!

Yours is a laughable post.

When you gonna have a sit-down meeting with the mass-murderers and arsonists and serial killers and cannibals and child molesters?

Why not explain what is acceptable behavior in society? Why do we keep seeing the same thing over and over from those people? That's so sad.

Answer me that, O "Sad" One.

Those who "stir the pot of hatred" are all about you and it definitely isn't me.

Are you blind or just ignorant? Either of those ought to make you "sad." Honesty and Integrity eludes you for writing such a hilarious post.

It ought to make you "sad" when there are those on here who call for a race of people to be killed. It ought to make you "sad" when there are those who make threats. It ought to make you "sad" when the resident pervert spews his venom night and day incessantly.

It ought to make you "sad" when you choose NOT to lament on those things. Oh, I almost forgot...it is because those are the same ones who support your position.

Take your holier than thou, "sad" feelings back to the rat-infested sewer from whence you came.

Bye Bye Sucker!

You got that right, the Florida governor and state attorney are a couple of big pansy asses. They caved in to the blacks who were out to lynch Zimmerman, and threatening to riot. They appeased these people by throwing them a bone, and that was Zimmerman on a trumped up murder charge..

Prove that claim you make.

The proof will NOT be found in the number of arrests or convictions. There is plenty of empirical evidence that Blacks are arrested at rates higher than others who commit the same or similar crimes.

Blacks are also sentenced at higher rates for the crimes they are convicted of. And, gee whiz, guess what?

Those who are found to be innocent of crimes in which they've been wrongly imprisoned for are overwhelmingly Black.

Now, Mr. No Reality...you just go ahead and prove me wrong. I'll surely be waiting. You're much too easy for me. Go get some help, Chump. Maybe Fixed-News can help you.

Your fellow Chump Zimmerman is freed but he surely ain't free!

The very first word in your quote is the key. IF. All Trayvon was doing was defending himself from an armed loon who had been following him and chased him down. It didn't help, Zimmerman was too much of a coward to duke it out like a man, he had to shoot, murder according to the state of Florida, Trayvon.
The problem you have is there is only one version of the 'if' with any supporting evidence and that version is George's. Your 'ifs' are mere speculation and not based on any evidence released so far. I have statements from eight legal experts that claim the murder charge against George Zimmerman is totally unjustified and will never be proven.

YES, there are many who do, indeed, worship Zimmerman.

Keep up. Don't let the facts stray away from you. Oops, to late. No worries.

Facts don't need you. LIES need you. LIES have you by the neck.

Trayvon was a child. According to the norms of society and the laws of the state of Florida and his patents, Trayvon was a child.

The first sentence of the third paragraph of your post is a joke.

Your 4th paragraph doesn't line up with the Truth.

Your....well, come to think of it, your entire post is BS.

Re-write but do NOT resubmit.

Let's not put the cart before the horse. Did you ever consider the fact that the reason they are arrested at a higher rate is because they commit crimes at a higher rate and you reap what you sow??

According to the Bureau of Justice statistics, in 2008,16.4% of rapes/sexual assaults against white women, the perp was black.
