Yep...I think that was a brilliant move by the defense. Just the facts, ma’m.

I know there’s rioting somewhere. Is the DHS suppressing twitter feeds and cell texts? How can no one be reporting the riots?

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

So here comes another trial. Zimmerman should just go ahead and move to Peru. Hopefully that’s exactly what he’ll do.

I AM FURIOUS!

On nationwide TV, the media, including FOX News, the FLA state attorney and prosecutors are re-trying the case and insisting that Zimmerman was really guilty and the jury was wrong!!!!

That is an excellent point that you have addressed. It is criminal on the MSM’s part to ignore such things.

On a non-related note, I have read many “Trayvon” threads that many Freepers were sure an all woman jury couldn’t rule without emotion, couldn’t dissemble facts and would be afraid of repercussions.

Sure didn’t turn out to be the case. :)

The prosecution (state) just said that the screaming heard on the tape stopped the moment of the shot...

Ok, that would be the moment they believe that the screaming for help might just be Trayvon Martin...And that does make some sense...But even that would be considered speculation and easy to defend AND prosecute...So instead of getting bogged down in the semantics of that just to prove some arbitrary, manufactured hope of outside sources, both the defense AND the state agreed to NOT make an issue out of this recording...The argument could be made both ways...And it was not in the interest to seeking the truth at the end of the day...

The additional commentary just now being bantered around the news idiots is that this poor daring little angel “Treyvon Martin” was just minding his own business is absolute BS from here to Christmas...

He climbed a fence to gain access to a “gated community” where he had NO business!!!

Look at it this way...I believe Zimmerman acted beyond his capacity of a law abiding citizen who carried a gun for lawful self defensive purposes (from the moment this story hit the wires)...He IS NOT a COMMISSIONED LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER!!! Just because you decide to carry a gun for that lawful self defensive purpose, does not give you leave to enforce ANY law!!!

This is the worst case scenario for anyone in this country who decides to do so, and this should be a lesson one needs to apply to their methods in doing so...

Remember, every single bullet that leaves your gun has a lawyer attached to it!!!

You not only have to be responsible for that act of discharging your weapon, but you damned well better be prepared to be accountable for that act!!!

Both of whom attested that there was no real basis for this case.

Geraldo, yes. Greta, no. She’s one of the most objective liberals in the media......

IMHO, of course......

I never said that and I think they did a great job. I found it offensive when I heard certain liberals say that the all women jury was an advantage to the prosecution because the one prosecutor was considered to be handsome. The implication was the women would allow that to affect their verdict. Apparently not.

Yep and I said that from the beginning, dont assume anything about women juries. Im a chick and I would have acquitted Zimmerman in 2 seconds..it was an open and shut case..and should have never been filed to begin with..but I must admit when the jury wanted instructions on manslaughter I thought for sure that was NOT good news, I was wrong..God Bless that Jury!!

WHERE IS THE JUSTICE FOR HIM?

I agree. The prosecutors are acting like they got screwed and worrying about their careers. (Only the 2nd murder charge he ever lost). They want a riot! unreal.

Still no truth. Much relevant evidence hidden then excluded. And no sanctions for the State Attorney’s Office and no justice for the Whistleblower.

The system is still crap. The case just wasn’t close enough for the biased judge and crooked prosecutors to win even with cheating.

I am watching the commentary on ABC which was the first channel I turned to.

They are at times lying through their teeth then at other times misleading and at other times saying things which might be true but probably isn’t.

They are in fact liars.

Lee got a raw deal. He knew they didn’t have a case so he didn’t make an arrest. And that cost him his job.

I thought I heard one was being prepped for this case, but yes, it was pushed passed that procedure by the state for political purposes...Sorry for the ambiguity...That’s on me...

And for what its worth, I believe someone else here said that there needs to be some real political blowback from this for those responsible for pushing it to this extreme...

After the news media companies have put Zimmerman and his family in such danger, he and his family would probably appreciate support for security and transportation to get them safely and swiftly to a secured rural area in another part of the country.

I have to admit that this is the verdict the jury SHOULD have reached, but I wasn’t sure that they would be able to see through the media hype, manufactured “evidence” and BS.

Unfortunately, I don’t think this will end it for Zimmerman. On Monday, I fully expect Eric Holder’s Dept. of “justice” to file a civil rights violation or other trumped up charge against Zimmerman. If I were GZ, I would take the few hours of freedom I have at the moment and join Snowden, wherever he is before Holder can sink his fangs into him.

As much as it ought to be over, it ain’t over!!
