Zimmerman Found Not Guilty


George Zimmerman - Far Right

February 2012, Trayvon Martin a 17yr old black kid was shot dead in a central Florida neighborhood, a jury found the man who killed him -- George Zimmerman, who argued that he fired in self defense -- not guilty.

The fact that Zimmerman fired the bullet that killed Martin was never in question, but the verdict means the six-person jury had reasonable doubt that the shooting amounted to a criminal act. Trayvon was later found to being unarmed with nothing but a back-park of candy.

So many questions and opinion has been thrown to the table with the tagline "Racism" as people believe the verdict would have been entirely opposite if the tables were turned.

The jurors -- all of them women -- deliberated for 16½ hours total, including 13 on Saturday alone, before delivering their verdict. Five of the women are white, one is a minority.

None of them wanted to speak to the media after the verdict, court spokeswoman Michelle Kennedy tweeted.

When he learned his fate, a quiet Zimmerman had little visible reaction. He turned and shook the hand of one of his attorneys before sitting back down, only openly smiling after court was adjourned. His parents, Robert and Gladys Zimmerman, were seated nearby, but Martin's parents were not in the courtroom.

Robert Zimmerman Jr. said there's still plenty of fear, and his brother George "is going to be looking around his shoulder for the rest of his life." But there's great relief as well.
