Sadly, no one wins in a case like this. Thanks for the article, Cal.

Such a travesty and perhaps the best way to show respect for Trayvon and his family were the peaceful protests across te country. The one exception didn't take away from the others.

How Zimmerman got out of it was by out-and-out lying. Again, I say Thank NRA for another death. Putting guns in the hands of irresponsible people like Zimmerman - while not mentally unstable, was still an accident waiting to happen.

First SCOTUS revives Jim Crow, and now Florida has excused lynching. Sorry! I thought this was the twenty-first century, not the nineteenth!

I applaud the jury for coming to a decision based upon the facts presented.
It's unfortunate a young man died. Mr. Zimmerman will be haunted by this experience for the rest of his life, which is punishment enough. I believe, based on the facts, that Mr. Martin contributed to his own demise.
We live in the United States where peaceful protesting is allowed. And, unfortunately, there will always be those idiot morons in society that will use what happened as an excuse to riot, loot and cause trouble. ...which comes back to the original reason as to why this all started, break-ins in a neighborhood and neighborhood watch looking to prevent it.

Cal - Thank you for the facts from a reputable source. I appreciate this.

I probably can't fault the jury, they were working with evidence presented and a very warped law, which desperately needs to be changed.

i would like to see Trayvon's family initiate a wrongful death suit against Mr. Zimmerman, as was done after the OJ Simpson acquittal. I would expect this to need to be done in Florida, and I'm sure there would be expenses for the family, but I suspect there are people of all colors all over the country who would be willing to chip in, probably small amounts, but which could add up.

I will be looking forward to the civil lawsuit against Zimmerman. He should not get off scot-free. He disobeyed "orders" and then stalked someone walking in a hoodie who had done nothing wrong, then murdered him.
