    Fair enough. Let’s say Martin managed to turn the gun around before the trigger was pulled and Zimmerman had been killed with his own gun, with only Martin’s testimony about what happened. Who comes out the bad guy then? Who would the press favor, or the court system? Would Zimmerman be a concerned citizen who got killed defending his neighborhood, or would you accept Trayvon’s testimony about him following him around with a gun?
    These are genuine questions, not partisan accusations. With no third party witnesses, we only have the testimony of the survivor as to what really happened. Would Trayvon have had the same supporters Zimmerman had, or would the public still be divided along the same lines?

    Somehow I don’t think that’s the look young Trayvon had on his face that night.

    I doubt the public would ever have known about that scenario.

    The problem with strips like this and those with the same viewpoint of Mr. Anderson is that they refuse to believe, for one second, that they may be wrong or that anyone other than them knows the truth and can pass judgement.

    The reality is, with the law as written, this was the only possible outcome. There was no way they could get beyond a reasonable doubt against the parameters of “Stand Your Ground”. If the jury had come back guilty, the judge would have set aside the verdict.

    The problem isn’t the verdict, it’s the law itself. There is no logical reason someone who stalked and attacked another person should be able to claim self defense, but the law allows it. The law needs to be struck down, plain and simple.

    Justice should be ashamed after the tactics that the justice department and the prosecution used. the prosecution attempted to hide and destroy evidence. The justice department used our taxpayer dollars to help organize trayvon rallies before the trial even began.

    You certainly are entitled to your own opinion but not your own facts. Did you see the police taken photos of the assaulted Zimmerman. The jury did, dozens of times. Just how do you think he got beaten up? And there was a witness who saw Martin beating Zimmerman up.
    Martin having just smoked pot may have exhibited bad judgement. His extensive criminal record doesn’t suggest a boy scout. And why was he carrying burglar tools?

    @Ruff

    And Martin beating him up, see photos, has no meaning. In your society one may ruthlessly beat another up with no consequences.

    If you actually followed the case instead of just giving your opinion you would know at no time was the “stand your ground” law even mentioned. What was described many times is the law of self defense which you probably know is the law in all 50 states. Didn’t matter where the trial was held the defense would have been the same. Self-defense. Did you see the police taken photos? How do you propose that happened.

    Actually race did have something to do with it.
    .
    What Zimmerman did (until the shooting) was a festival of stupidity and unfortunately being stupid is not illegal.

    Zimmerman is probably not done with the law — he also has had other incidents including a domestic violence charge and one for shoving an officer. This time it was just a second class citizen he killed, he will eventually aim his gun at somebody that America cares about.

    Give me a break, you act like Martin was little mister innocent. He was a drug dealing drug using criminal. He was kicked out of school for drugs, he tried to beat a man to death. Zimmerman should have done things differently but never the less Martin was no saint. I’m sick of the media using a little boy school photo instead of the current one that showed the real Martin. He wasn’t a nice person.
