I don't think any one of us can say with any degree of certainty whether the verdict was right or not, as none of us were there to view the evidence and testimony. I think, however, given the limited amount of evidence I have seen that neither one of these individuals were in line for sainthood. I think the kid was a wannabe gang banger and Zimmerman was a guy who was looking for any reason to shoot someone. It's a culmination of many factors that led to this sad and senseless event.

Yes, HILERY42, Tray was far from being a sweet innocent young 17 yr. old. But, it was GZ(adult),the 'wanna be' cop who pursued Martin, who would be alive today if GZ had done what he was suppose to do. TM did not threaten GZ, GZ threatened TM by following him.GZ initiated it.TM did not have a weapon and George was not a 'pudgy'little guy at the time of the altercation. One "picture" of a gun on TM phone...NOT in his hand.GZ knew nothing of this kid. GZ played God. GZ would not have had to'defend'himself that night had he gone home or stayed in his vehicle.He had a gun & he wanted to use it,plain and simple.They both had the potential for being violent.At any rate,unless he has to face some type of consequence for his actions, he will do it again.GZ was 'asking' for what he got, which were only superficial cuts. GZ took the law of God& Man into his own his own hands.Zimmerman did exactly what he set out to do,he wanted an excuse to use his gun.He 'created' the situati

And loneridder, you know I have supported this president, but his comment about this incident was uncalled for. As president of the most powerful country in the world, he has bigger issues to comment on than this media circus type incident. I was very dissapointed at that.

If you keep all of the emotions and policitcs out of this, and you should, the jury got this right based on law. I am not a Zimmerman supporter, but this was the right decision. For those that don't agree, work to change the laws.

Must be I hurt the feelings of nine insane Floridians.

Needless to say, this was a two-sided media cluster****. Justice has been served. Done. Fin.

I guess it all just depends on whom you believe.

This case should never have been brought in the first place. I thought it was worth noting, but never was, that skittles and watermelon iced tea are combined with cough syrup to create a PCP like drink (called "drank") and was supposedly Trayvons drink of choice. He also had been suspended from school for drugs and had pics on his phone of the loot of jewelry he'd stolen and illegal guns he was selling. He was not an innocent little kid. He had no problem breaking the law. Clearly, he was angry Zimmerman followed him. He sized Zimmerman up, saw he was a short pudgy guy and decided to beat the*****out of him. Had Trayvon truly been scared, he'd have walked inside his house or called 911 on his cell. Instead he willingly picked a fight with a guy he thought he could manhandle, not knowing he had a gun. Had Zimmerman not had a gun he would eventually have sustained very serious injuries. I hope Zimmerman is able to get his life back.

Where was Al Sharpton when OJ was acquitted? Everyone knows he killed 2 people and it was NOT self defense!

Talking heads of the media: there is now plenty of time to address the rampant homicides of young black men in Chicago, Detroit, NOLA, Cleveland, Buffalo, Los Angeles, Dallas-Fort Worth etc. etc.

Another travesty from the f'ing south. My second grade teacher was right when she said you are lucky to live in Jamestown and not someplace bad like the south!

Good verdict. Trayvon Martin was not an innocent cherubic little boy skipping through the woods with bunny rabbits and gum drops like the lamestream media tried to portray him.

He was an 18 year old pot-smoking anti-white racist punk thug-wanna-be who got what he had coming to him. He brought it on himself.

Go pound sand Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson!

Patrick Buchanan pretty well summed it up in Saturday's P-J.

The president had no business sticking his nose into this case! He needs to go back and continue to call all gay athletes.

To bad Paula Deen didn't use a gun, she would have gotten off much easier.
