    So what is this – more racist riot-mongering? I’m guessing that Alcatraz is enraged that Mr Zimmerman isn’t going to be executed for defending himself from that scumbag Trayvon. Cheer up, Alcatraz – your racist buddies are already rioting and threatening to murder Mr Zimmerman, the jurors, the defense lawyers, and everyone else they can think of.

    Logically, (not morally), if the law did not punish Zimmerman for taking the law in his own hands, why should others be punished for giving him a taste of his own medicine?

    Just to show that stand your ground laws are the road to anarchy.

    The court has spoken, and whether right or wrong the decision should now be respected. I personally do not agree that Zimmerman should not be punished for what he did, but if that is the decision, so be it.
    One of the problems with prosecuting a case is the jury is only allowed to debate and take into consideration what has been presented, as it is presented in the courtroom. Zimmerman and Martin’s previous lives or actions are to have no bearing on the decision, unless it can be proven Zimmerman is a sociopath likely to repeat his actions. They are also not allowed to consider the consequences of the precedent set by their decision. If a higher court determines that letting Zimmerman go free sets a precedent that makes it to difficult to prosecute vigilante slayings, it can be changed there, but Zimmerman himself cannot be charged again for the same crime (double jeopardy).
    I hope no one tries to test the boundaries of this decision by committing a similar killing, believing they will be acquitted if the scene throws reasonable doubt as to the gunman’s intentions. But name one law or loophole in this country that has never been exploited for someone’s personal gain.

    The only scumbag in this sad affair is Zimmerman. He was armed, he followed and stalked an unarmed subject against the advice of police, got into an unprovoked confrontation and shot the guy. I hope he does not have a peaceful day for the rest of his life.

    On reflection, arrested a girl who’d recently reached age of “maturity” for shooting her boyfriend to death, five rounds in the back of the head. Prosecuting authorities let her go on simple manslaughter as they labeled it “self defense”. Turns out two things found out later, “Daddy” was a very rich lawyer, and the girl had killed TWO boyfriends as a juvenile, and she never served time!


    Juries, not just defense or prosecutors, are often the threat to “justice”, but it’s the risk we DO take in a democracy where “jury of your peers”, isn’t always so, or jury of the sane.


    BTW, if Rodney King had been shot while he was violently choking out a deputy, instead of being beaten and arrested, the case never would have been a media sensation, and seventy-odd people wouldn’t have died in rioting. “Crazy stupid” works many ways.

    I don’t recall a lot of tears, vigils, rallies, and protests among blacks when O.J. was found not guilty after slaughtering two innocent white people. Alcaraz and his buddies out rioting in the streets must have felt that the justice system was working back then.

    Then it’s a good thing that the defense didn’t use a stand your ground for his defense.

    @Fourcrows

    Prove your claims about Mr.Zimmerman.

    I’m betting if ethnicities were reversed with same shooting, death, arrest, trial and verdict, you wold be saying the Verdict was correct as a Black Man was defending himself against a Hispanic youth who wanted to harm him. You would agree with Florida’s Stand Your Ground Law in the case of a Black Man defending himself against the attack of a Hispanic Man

    @Ruff

    I’m betting if Zimmerman was Black and Martin was Hispanic, you would be stating The Not Guilty Verdict was correct as it was Mr. Martin a Hispanic attacking a Black Man, Mr.Zimmerman.

    @Cynthia

    Reverse the ethnicities of Mr. Martin and Mr. Zimmerman with same tragic result, same arrest, same trial and same Not Guilty Verdict, you would agree the Not Guilty Verdict was correct and you would applaud Florida’s Stand Your Ground Law as it allowed a Black Man to defend himself against the attack of a Hispanic man.

    @Ruff

    If we had same exact shooting, death, arrest, trail and verdict and the only difference was that Mr.Zimmerman was Black and Mr, Martin was Hispanic, you would be saying the Not Guilty Verdict was the correct verdict.

    Justice was served. Why does Acaraz hate Hispanics?
