I could post this in any number of communities but they seem to be inhabited by liberals who, no matter how much you try to reason, only care about the correctness of their position and aren't able to understand they could be wrong.
I think the jury brought back the only verdict they could. Based on the evidence, much of which was presented by the prosecution itself, there was no other verdict possible. Martin was obviously beating the crap out of Zimmerman and I'm sure he was afraid for his life.
That said, I have no sympathy for George Zimmerman. I've been in a neighborhood watch meeting with police officers before. The one thing they stressed is if you see someone suspicious, call 911. DON'T confront the person yourself. Let the cops handle it. George Zimmerman appears to be one of those people we the cops call cowboys. These are guys who want to be cops but don't have the ability to pass the tests. Many of them like how powerful it makes them feel to carry a gun. Cops really don't like these guys because they get in the way of law enforcement rather than enhance it.
Zimmerman has nobody to blame but himself for what he went through. He should have done what the dispatcher told him to do and stayed in his vehicle.
