George Zimmerman is not guilty of the murder of Trayvon Martin, a Florida jury decided late Saturday.
The fact that Zimmerman fired the bullet that killed Martin was never in question, but the verdict means the six-person jury had reasonable doubt that the shooting amounted to a criminal act.
The verdict caps a case that has inflamed passions for well over a year, much of it focused on race and gun rights.
The six-person jury -- all women -- basically had three choices: to find Zimmerman guilty of second-degree murder; to find him guilty of the lesser charge of manslaughter; or to find him not guilty.
The jurors deliberated for 16½ hours total, including 13 on Saturday alone, before delivering its verdict.

I hope GZ & his family get some protection.
Pray for their safety.
This has been answered about 1000 times on FR since this trial started. Zimmerman cannot be charged with civil rights violation, the only people that can violate a person's civil rights are members of the government. Zimmerman doesn't qualify. Also, Florida law forbids the filing of civil suits(such as wrongful death)when the defendant is found NOT GUILTY. The only think Zimmerman has to worry about now is being taken out by one or more of the Amish.
It’s time for Corey, Bernie “The Roach”, Pam Blondi and Gov Scott to
pay a political, civil and criminal price for this farce. There are a lot of
white Hispanics who live in Florida who are not happy with this farce.
I hope blowback on these hacks are intense!
I’m surprised it took them so much time to come to that verdict. I have to wonder what was going on behind those closed doors.
It’s open season on “crackers”.
Lock and load.
There never was a grand jury. Angela Corey single-handedly invoked the 2nd degree murder charge without benefit of an indictment.
Mine will be if the people responsible for this travesty are removed form any official position when they have power over another's life.
Have the riots started yet?
Has Obama announced a civil rights prosecution yet?
After all, Zimmerman did shoot his son.
Thank God. That poor guy can finally move on.
Yep...I think that was a brilliant move by the defense. Just the facts, ma’m.
If the media had been this obsessed with the 4 brave americans killed in Benghazi we might actually have found out what happened
What amazing courage those ladies showed in this decision.
Pray for America to Wake Up
I know there’s rioting somewhere. Is the DHS suppressing twitter feeds and cell texts? How can no one be reporting the riots?
Obammy doesn’t watch TV!/s
“How long until Eric Holder files charges for civil rights violations?”
It is long past time for Eric Holder to go to HELL!
Mine will be restored when Barry and his thugs are tried, convicted, and sentenced for treason.
NAACP wants to file federal charges against Zimmerman with the help of the DOJ..surprise surprise LOL..yeah NAACP, good luck with that..EPIC FAIL
