seems strange his bullet was found in the body yet no conviction at all....the plea of murder beyond reasonable doubt was impossible to prove..but the bullet was there.. My father served seven years for murder after a bar room fight with a bully...who fell down and cracked his head and died after my father punched him to protect a refugee from being beaten up...funny old world hey...x

..as well as being a rallying point for racist/Teabagers/etc. as they showed their support for the coward Zimmermann who stalked/followed and then forced Trayvon into a confrontation with him in order to ...use the 'stand your ground law' ..and then to shoot and kill Trayvon. The way Zimmermann went about the stalking, the phone call, the disobeying police orders to not approach Trayvon ,....all looks to me now that is was more like a plan than anything ...in my opinion.

The racist/Teabagers/etc and those like Zimmermann will continue their racist driven assults on Americans as long as such laws provide freedom for cold blooded murderers as it did in this case unfortunately............

What part of 'neighborhood WATCH' was it that the coward 'Zimmermann' didn't understand in the first place?Neighorhood WATCH ...but is that what Zimmermann went with ? Obviously not. Their group needs to outline some new rules for anyone to be a part of their program..no guns when on 'watch' allowed for starters ..if that's not one of them already.

Anyway..That would make it premeditated...1st degree murder..that is why it was 'a joke' if there is one in this tragidy .....the charges were not what they should have been from the get go. The only thing I see that might have been a joke..was the attorney for the prosecution ..but Trayvons family didn't have the more than generous amount of funding that the coward Zimmermann did for his defence team.

I hope that now the family will at least file a Wrongful Death Lawsuit against the coward Zimmermann.

Injustice has so many ugly names, i.e. joke, funny, strange, disgrace,..., etc.
Thanks Shira.

If by the use of the word in title ..."disgrace" was referencing the verdict, then I agree.

You are right Jae, the charges against Mr. Zimmerman were not what they should have been. He should never have been charged with anything other than manslaughter. That might have made it possible for the jurors to come to a guilty verdict. There was no premeditation involved, so first-degree murder charges would have been an even bigger joke than the second degree charges brought against him.
