You seem to be wrapped up in this case yourself. Next thing you know he will be a legendary actor.

This really pisses me off. Why are so many people up in arms over this case? Obviously Zimmerman had no clue that Martin was black when all this started, and I highly doubt it played any part at all. Yet Martin did in fact use a racial slur, which most people fail to mention, and that is somehow okay? That is just the race part, and that seems to be why so many people are mad. These people are ignorant of the facts in my opinion, and should be ashamed that they are using the death of this person to further their own sick, racist agenda. Racism works both ways by the way.
This man was found innocent by a jury of his peers. Therefore everyone should accept that verdict and let it go. If some other agency wishes to bring charges, then they will. But any US citizen who thinks that this was an unfair trial is simply ignorant. The fact remains that even IF Zimmerman was a racist and killed Martin for that reason, which is not where the evidence points, there simply is not enough evidence to convict him of a crime.
That is what people fail to realize. And why is it that when a black man kills a white teenager, no one seems to care? And they say the white people are the racist ones? A case like this JUST occurred, and yet the media is not mentioning it, and black people seem to think it is okay judging by the reactions I have seen. Therefore it is obvious to me that there are many people who are about vengeance, not about justice, and these are not the types of people who need to be sticking their noses into any form of politics or the justice system, because they are biased. I am so sick of this type of bias.
