I for one think that this shows a very loose usage of the law. It also shows racism. If that jury hadn't been all white I don't think Zimmerman would win the case. This shows racism in that: If a white teenager had been killed, that court would find Zimmerman guilty.

It's not OK to rob a Seven Eleven, but it's OK to shoot an African American teenager who was minding his own business? What has this country done?

It's better to not convict the guilty than to convict the innocent.
Legally that had to prove three things: motivation, malice, and I can't remember the third one.
Either way, they couldn't prove all three.

I for one think he was innocent. The bad thing is, the public has made it to where any support for Zimmerman is an act of racisim, while supporting Martin is cool. This is sheer idiocy. Anyone can understand that with all opinions aside, and strictly to the law in judgement, that Zimmerman did nothing wrong and when being attacked in that manner, had no way of properly shooting in a non-fatal fashion.

He didn't commit a crime, so he wasn't convicted. Your personal feelings don't matter when it comes to the law, especially your interpretation of how 'loose' the law was 'used'. 

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser gate. All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain...

The authorities told him not to follow Trayvon Martin, he did. Then he got out of his car to follow him. At that point Martin turned around to see who was following him, then he was shot.

You know, no matter how much anyone argues about this, it's not going to change that NONE OF US WERE THERE, so NONE OF US ACTUALLY KNOW THE TRUTH.

He stopped following treyvon, as proven by the phonecall, also by how far he was from the house. But, with Zimmerman being the neighborhood watch cordinator, Treyvon being a suspicous character who even simulated a gun drawing motion while approaching Zimmerman who was still seated in his vehicle, and started the scuffle between the two, would make Zimmerman justified in using self defence with a weapon that he was licensed with.

I think Zimmerman should have been found guilty but I see why He wasn't. The case was about "self defense" cause that is what Zimmerman claimed. It was never tried as a "hate crime" which everyone really focused on. And actually he wasn't even found "not guilty" the jury acquitted him cause the final vote was 3 not guilty and 3 guilty. But I wish he was found guilty cause he did admit that he killed Travon, which is very upsetting

And by "the authorities" you mean the guy he was talking to that he didn't have to listen to, legally speaking, right? Nice try. 

Your re-telling of the story is also grossly inaccurate. I suggest you look up what actually took place. Try Wikipedia, it has all of the events  in chronological order and background on all the people involved.

Uh...? Of course he's going to admit to killing him, because he acted within the law since Trayvon assaulted him and he (Zimmerman) defended himself. Why would he not admit it? There's no reason why he should be found guilty for anything and go to jail when he didn't even commit a crime when he gets assaulted, lol...
