  1. It’s absolutely criminal how florida handled this murder, but they have made it very clear to the world what they do and we are now ALL involved and we will make sure there are some serious changes made so that this NEVER happens again. We owe Trayvon this much! RIP sweet child of God!

  2. No, they did not do their jobs. They set this up so Zimmerman would walk. What prosecution would stand for an almost all white jury of only women? Not any prosecution that I know of. I will never set foot in Florida. NEVER! I hope Zimmerman gets what is coming to him. Those photos are heartbreaking.

  3. I knew when I saw the injuries on GZ’s head they were self inflected. And yes way are they bleeding towards his face and not towards the back of his head. Trayvon Martin was never sitting on him holding him down and slamming his head on the sidewalk. Because if he had slammed his head that many times he would of ended up in a coma or unconscious and would of ended up in the hospital. Trayvon was the one screaming for help because I believe GZ attacked him and when GZ shot Trayvon straight into his chest he fell forwards, that’s why Trayvon was on his face on the ground. Sorry to say that jury had no common sense when it came to looking at all the evidence and didn’t ask the correct questions when the questioned the judge. The facts along with the evidence proved that GZ out right murdered Trayvon Benjamin Martin.

    • The one screaming for help was Trayvon Martin, that is why the cries stopped the second that gun was shot. This trial was a joke, the prosecutor didn’t present any other scenario but that given by GZ. That is why they advised TM’s parents not to be present when the verdict was read, they (the prosecutors) knew GZ was going to win.

      • The prosecutors didnt advise his parents not to be in the court room when the verdict was read………Trayvons parents lawyers told them not to be in the court room and one other thing, the blood was running downward after he stood up……and the cries stopped after GZ shot him was because Trayvon was dead and couldnt hurt GZ any more……U people need to go by the evidence and it shows Martin on top and Zimmerman on the bottom

      • Perhaps the blood ran downwards after he stood up, but there is no reason to see only the blood running towards his face. There were witnesses saying they saw GZ on top and others that it was TM, but of course, the witnesses that said contrary to GZ story were brushed away. According to GZ himself, he wasn’t sure if he had hit TM when he shot that gun (but, just like you, I don’t believe him either.) Regardless if he knew or not that he had hit him, one will not stop crying for help, if only so someone could come to your aid, after all… weren’t you beat to a pulp which was what made you so afraid for your life? Then, instead of going to a hospital, Mr. Macho that was so scared to lose a fistfight that had to murder an unarm child, thought his “wounds” were not big deal and he didn’t need medical attention. You, my dear, need to learn to read between the lines, THERE WAS NO EVIDENCE, everything was hearsay and it happens to be that all those testifying and their testimony accepted were neighbors of GZ… Those that dared to say the contrary, were dismissed. Don’t you find that a tiny bit suspicious?

    • There was no blood or sign of injury on the back of Z’s head when he is getting out of the police car nor is blood apparent on his face although his face isn’t real clear in most of the video.

  4. hummm the back of his jacket looks very dry and very clean and unwrinkled to have been on the bottom wet grass or cement all that time…REALLY POLICE, ZIMMERMAN???
    SUCH LIARS & COMPLETE BS! great piece thanks

  5. so was he not told to stay in his car ? If he was attacked outside of his car , I ask , who approached who ?

    • Actually he was told not to follow and he ignored it. Some people are saying that George Zimmerman was defending himself but what many people ignore is that Trayvon Martin was too defending himself. In any case, George Zimmerman provoked the whole thing, not Trayvon Martin. Trayvon has been victimized twice.

    • Not happy about any of this, and yes, your question is a plausible one… But all that does is indeed establish reasonable doubt, correct? Regretably, Trayvon Martin is not here to defend himself, but there is also eyewitness testimony… How big is the conspiracy, if there exists one? Even if the jury more matched society racially, there would still be only the doubt…. My heart breaks for the Martins, as would be my worst nightmare to lose a child…

      • There were witnesses claiming that TM was on top and other witnesses claiming GZ was on top. George Zimmerman shouldn’t have been found not guilty at minimum he should have been convicted of manslaughter.

  6. And my question is…..did the prosecution blow the case …..or did they throw the case…

  7. I suspect if you look closely, you’ll find many more ‘George Zimmerman’s in Florida – and the SPD knows it and protects them. Something is rotten in Sanford…

  8. A Sphere, or near Sphere…beaten against a flat, hard Surface…will exhibit damage, if any, at the half-way mark of the Sphere…limiting any damage to a spot or a ring at the curve of the Sphere. I see no damage at such a location….in fact I see no damage at all. So, the Head-banging is all made-up.

    • Read the forensic report, no marks on Trayvon Martin’s hands. To understand basic physics, such as gravity and the direction blood or any liquid falls, you don’t need to be a forensic expert and I never claimed to be one. Does that answer your question?

  9. WHY does Florida allow only a SIX-MEMBER jury to decide a verdict in a trial like this? That’s the BIGGEST question I’ve had since the trial started. I’ve sat on 12-member juries deciding on a TRAFFIC STOP and a legal malpractice case. It makes zero sense to me how 6 people make a better jury than 12 in this case.

    • Exactly! And that 5 out of those 6 jurors were white and the 6th hispanic. Where were the peers of the victim? This trial was a joke since the get go, it was forced by the public demand for justice not because the State Attorney or the Sanford judicial department thought it was necessary.

  10. What is so surprising about the American Justice system? Why do we act so shocked and surprised? America has the largest prison revenue generating system on earth, minorities are targeted and make up the largest percentage. This case is being used to keep you occupied and distracted while more of our constitutional rights are re written and taken away from all of us. Te goal of the elite us to divide and conquer the masses. Keeping us at each others throats only benefits the Elite power structure. Peace and love to all my fellow humans!

    • While I tend to agree with you in that there are many issues such as our constitutional rights being taken away from all of us that doesn’t mean that we remain calm and content when injustices such as the case of Trayvon Martin take place. There is no need to look the other way and accept these injustices as a fact of life. We have the capacity and the obligation of exposing these injustices and fight to protect our rights, we can all chew gum and walk at the same time.

      The division this case is creating, if any, is between those that are racist and those that are not. To be honest, I want nothing to do with the racists as it turns out they are – unknowingly – the ones electing the officials that are working so hard at taking our rights away and whom, in order to satisfy the greed of the very wealthy and large corporations, are driving this country to the ground while turning the citizens of this country into beggars who will be willing to work for scraps.

  11. This entire case was a joke to juries. I mean how many ways can u present the evidence that trayvon was the victim…if u ask me those juries might have been paid off, because there is NO way a sane person or persons not see that this young man was a target for no reason…one thing I know MY GOD don’t like ugly and justice will be served…it sucks the type of message that is been sent regarding young black men. I mean when did it become a crime for a young black man to walk the street, its not like was walking around trying to pick people doors or breaking window…what give this that no good piece of crap the right to play cop, what happen to

  13. I wish you would have been on the jury. What an injustice. How could they have been so blind? All the lies and consisiencies… bless his family, and rest his soul.

  14. Because they are self-inflicted wounds or someone else did it AFTER he shot him. I’ve said that from day 1. Even Tyson couldn’t throw punches in a struggle that would land so perfectly in the middle of his nose and mouth. The whole case is a disgrace.. May Zimmerman rot in hell

  15. His injuries were greatly exaggerated to justify the shooting… Zimmerman’s head wasn’t repeatedly bashed into the concrete or he’d have serious multiple skull fractures! It looks more like a couple of scrapes, any time you see blood it looks worse than it really is. All Z needed was a band-aid! He was obviously conscious, was able to walk & talk, he didn’t have a concussion, didn’t need to go to the hospital. And since Z carried his gun on the inside waistband in the back, if he was on his back with Martin on top of him, he was laying on his gun & couldn’t reach it if he was blocking blows to his head! Also Martin would have never known he had a gun & didn’t see it, because his jacket coverd it & it was to his back. So when he said Martin went for his gun, that was a lie! So that means once Martin felt he won the fight he stopped & got off of Z, that’s most likely when he got shot, with Martin off of him, that’s when Z was able to reach his gun, after the fight was over.

  16. Prosecutors did a poor job on pointing out the injuries that were not that serious, not consistent to the beating he said he took, no where near life threatening. Also they should have taken more to dispute the position of his body & gun. His injuries were greatly exaggerated to justify the shooting. Zimmerman’s head wasn’t repeatedly bashed into the concrete or he’d have serious multiple skull fractures! It looks more like a couple of scrapes, any time you see blood it looks worse than it really is. All Z needed was a band-aid! He was obviously conscious, was able to walk & talk, he didn’t have a concussion, didn’t need to go to the hospital. And since Z carried his gun on the inside waistband in the back, if he was on his back with Martin on top of him, he was laying on his gun & couldn’t reach it if he was blocking blows to his head! Also Martin would have never known he had a gun & didn’t see it, because his jacket covered it & it was to his back. So when he said Martin went for his gun, that was a lie! So that means once Martin felt he won the fight he stopped & got off of Z, that’s most likely when he got shot, with Martin off of him, that’s when Z was able to reach his gun, after the fight was over.

  17. The prosecution absolutely failed. They supported the defense and let this case slip through their fingers. Too much heresay and circumstantial evidence was left and the jury selection was a joke. There is no way an aggressor should be found “not guilty”. What I find particularly painful and ugly is the defense’s reaction and almost complete disregard for Martin’s Family and loved ones. They treated Ms. Jeantel like an all out idiot and disrespected her and her testimony. Everything they said with regards to any remorse sounded and played out as dishonest, condescending and phony; completely disingenuous! Everything about this whole thing from beginning to end is disgusting.
