What’s happening in Florida now?

“...he should never have been charged in the first place.”

Yes, God is Good! And for this young man, he is now free, he cannot be charged and tried again on any related criminal charges.

Pray now that Holder, the evil legal arm of Obama, the evil usurper in the White Hut, cannot succeed with any Civil suits. May they both rot in Hell.

Just a small note. In this case, shouldn’t it be ‘persecuters’ instead of prosecutors, though the latter be their title?

yup. I was pretty confident that he would be acquitted but the manslaughter business changed the game. Looks like the jury saw through it though. I hope there’s a book that comes out of this. Two actually- one from GZ and one from a juror.

So much for those mysogynists on this forum who insisted that women would not be able to see through all the falsehoods from the prosecution! In the end, they weighed all the facts and delivered a correct verdict.

Now we must pray for their safety in light of the hate- mongering true racists who were falsely accusing Zimmerman of profiling Martin

"Director of NAACP just said he is outraged and will pursue Civil Rights charges against George Zimmerman with Obama’s Justice Department!"

That won't happen, because Zimmerman wasn't working for the government. And he's been found not guilty. The case against Zimmerman was a joke on those who hate him and all who are perceived to be like him in any way.

So the Director was being ignorant or worse. All who harbor anti-Hispanic, racist hatred against Zimmerman are weak and helpless. They'll just have to internalize their hatred and take it out on themselves. There's nothing that they can do except maybe go on hunger strikes or immolate themselves. They'll just have to keep their madness behind their closed doors and be sad in isolation.

You can thank Scott for letting this farce go on. The prick was afraid of riots so he allowed this farce, and the result was that the us gov sent money and people to riot. Holder is getting the new black pussies their riot checks right now, and Boehner will never defund even one of these programs. As a matter of fact, he will allow almost all of this bs spending.

It is truly humbling and heartening to know that there are still some Americans out there across this once great country, who understand and appreciate the vital importance and priceless value of this Grand Experiment, which is predicated on Divine Providence and based on the Rule of Law.

Praise God!

Yes, let the TrayBama riots begin!

Apparently low-class Sharpton wants them to riot:

http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/sharpton-slap-face-those-who-believe-justice-country_739351.html#

Wow, I was hoping dishonest Al Sharpton would rise above race baiting, but I suppose race-baiting has been his life’s livelihood.

How he can totally ignore the bloodied nose and head pictures of Zimmerman when Trayvon had no such signs of abuse other than the final bullet wound??

What Koolaid is Sharpton drinking that he can’t understand the concept of “beyond a reasonable doubt?”

Good summary of how the Media and Obama’s ilk framed Zimmerman before he even had a chance:

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2013/07/13/Media-Zimmerman-Coverage-Rap-Sheet

Zimmerman should SUE OBAMA AND SHARPTON for all they’re worth!!
