    If this happened in Pennsylvania, George Zimmerman would have probably gotten the death penalty. He stalked Martin (after the dispatcher told him to stand down), initiated the confrontation, and when Martin tried to stand his own ground, Zimmerman pulled a gun. Zimmerman didn’t allow Martin a chance to stand down when the gun was pulled, and shot a minor child in cold blood.
    The murder of a minor automatically makes it a first-degree case with the death penalty being sought.

    Too bad @Stadium did not get one fact right. I enjoyed this series. After I finish this comment it comes off of my list. Thousands of young black men are murdered every year by other young black men. Why is the black community not addressing that outrage? Nope, they would rather make up a story filled with lies instead of taking the time to even listen to the original 9-1-1 tape. So long “Herb and Jamaal.” I hate racists and bigots.

    Why hasn’t anyone blamed prosecutor? There should have been other choices of charges the jury could have used to convict Zimmerman. It was Zimmermans fault that he followed Trevon but by law whether stand your ground or not it was not pure out murder. I’m white & believe he should be in jail awhile. Where was & is the outrage for murder of toddler in stroller when black kids robbed his mother & shot him just for the thrill of it????? There are double standards everywhere & not all are about race!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Never forget what? That the media played up TM as a young victim of as power mad racist? Or that GZ has spent years helping blacks by tutoring young black men; championing a black homeless man who had been beat up for no reason by a white perp.; has black family members who lived with him in his home during some tough times or that GZ’s prom date was black while TM was a trouble making kid who had been suspended from school, who was over 6 feet tall and @ 180 lbs. who also had some mixed martial arts training and who, rather than continue on to his home and safety, chose to confront and attack the “crazy ass cracker” who was following him??

    I will never forget an innocent man, MR Zimmerman, being crucified by racist in the media and government.

    I feel terrible for Trayvon Martin’s parents. This should never have happened. Actions on BOTH sides could have prevented this. However I’ve had enough of the sick portrayal of George Zimmerman as an evil racist. His life is destroyed no matter the outcome of the trial. And his family is probably suffering right along with him. Like the first commenter I’m removing this comic from my list. There is no justice to be found in the ‘Injustice Department’s’ investigation. And I’m afraid there never will be. George Zimmerman has to live with having taken a life, even if justified. Martin’s parents have to live with the hole in their lives. And I’m just cynical enough to believe that they’ll sue someone over this. And probably win a large settlement too.

    There should no longer be jury trials, judges should hand down convictions. I for 1 DO NOT want to be put in jury pool for any reason. Black Panthers putting a bounty out on Zimmerman. God forbid that if a white person had said things like that, they would be sitting in jail or worse. This DID NOT start out about race this became a political bombshell. Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson would actually have to work if race card wasn’t used all the time. Our great country has gone to Hell. I don’t care what color a persons skin. I also have been followed in stores by security or workers (am white) so please don’t make race an issue. Most people though love to stir in trouble. My heart goes out to Trevon’s mother

    Both parties were at fault. Neither one was a saint. However, the jury had reasonable doubt. Having been on a jury, I know how hard it is to be 100% certain. If there is reasonable doubt, the jury must decide in favor of the defense.

    @herdleader1953

    Puuhleeze. An armed man got out of his car, hunted another, confronted him, was losing the confrontation and shot him. Zimmerman’s story has a lot of holes in it. We only have his side of the story. While the law left the jury with little option other than not guilty, George is far from innocent.

    @Ole Sarge

    Yeah, if it wasn’t for a national uproar the case would have been ignored totally by the police and courts.

    Sorry, but you and @Ashburn Stadium do not have facts only assumptions and myths perpetrated by the media for sensation. Yes, this was a tragic circumstance that could have been prevented (hindsight is wonderful, isn’t it?) but hyperbole and lies will not end this.
