Fuggin Bizzy: What? He was clearly guilty, based on my own presupposition and the scattering of things I heard about the case on the Internet. This can't be right. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: trial-by-jury doesn't work.
d23: NuclearPenguins: TF voters, I am disappoint.Wasn't out fault. The modmins are trying to be judicious or are running scared.the one I voted for: "It is now open season on black children in Florida."

Incorrigible Astronaut: cman: NuclearPenguins: TF voters, I am disappoint.This wasn't usWe voted one up to 8 votesWe were ignoredThis. We had a pretty full thread going with the simple "not guilty" headline. I'm surprised they went with this one.
Norad: Drink every time you see the word 'riot' in this thread.
Raiden333: My personal opinion:Before the trial, I did no research, I only heard what the mainstream media reported, including the chopped up 911 call NBC played.When the trial started, I listened to it every day at work, starting out rooting for the prosecution.As the case went on, I started to realize that the case had been mischaracterized in the media and that there was in fact Reasonable Doubt. I saw that the prosecution was unable to establish a consistent narrative of what happened, and relied only on attacking Zimmerman's character and evoking emotion for Martin. I am sad that Martin is dead, it should not have happened. Both men made stupid mistakes that night. I don't know Zimmerman well enough to make a call on if he truly had ill-will in his heart. But I am happy a not guilty verdict was reached, because it means that evidence and the process of law have overridden appeals to emotion.
UNC_Samurai: This is about the prosecution being unable to put together a compelling case.You don't go to jail just for being proven a racist asshole.
