George was a ‘wannabe cop,’ who profiled Trayvon Martin, the prosecutor said in his closing argument on July 11. Do you think he’ll be found guilty and Trayvon’s parents will get the justice they’re seeking?

Trayvon Martin’s devastated parents say they want to see “justice” in the second-degree murder trial of George Zimmerman. Trayvon’s parents have not spoken publicly since the trial began, but on May 9, they said they believe their 17-year-old son was doing nothing wrong on Feb. 26, 2012, the night he was shot and killed by George, 29, who told police he acted in self-defense.

Trayvon Martin’s Parents Want Justice In George Zimmerman Trial

“Justice, to me, would be for the person who killed our son to be held accountable and for all the evidence to come out and for, you know, a jury to hear everything that happened that night of February 26,” Trayvon’s mother, Sybrina Fulton told NBC News on May 9.

George Zimmerman Trial: Prosecutor Gives Closing Argument

Prosecutor Bernie De la Rionda, who gave his closing argument on July 11, told the jury that it was Trayvon, not George, who had reason to be in fear on Feb. 26, 2012.

George is charged with second-degree murder in the teen’s shooting death. He claims he shot Trayvon in self-defense while on neighborhood watch duty. However, the prosecutor argues that George wrongly “profiled” Trayvon as a criminal, followed him with a gun and provoked him into a fight that resulted in the shooting death of the unarmed teenager.

“Who started this? Who followed who? Who was minding their own business? Of the two, who was the one that was armed?” he asked the jury.

“Why does this defendant, [George Zimmerman], get out of the car if he thinks Trayvon Martin is a threat to him? Because he’s got a gun! He’s got the equalizer! He’s going to take care of it! He’s a wannabe cop!” De la Rionda argued.

Murder Trial Goes To The Jury

Now that closing arguments have been presented, the murder trial goes to the jury on July 12. If convicted, George could be sentenced to life in prison for second-degree murder and up to 30 years for manslaughter.

What do YOU think of the prosecutor’s closing argument in this trial, HollywoodLifers? Do you think George is innocent or guilty? Vote below.

Man, this type stuffs been happening to us blacks for how long now? Like 200-300 years? As much as I would like it justice wont be surved to Zimmerman, he’s a free man because treyvon was a young black boy. I bet money if he was white Zimmerman would be on death row by now. Smh -.- Americas really messed up…

sorry to disagree with you racist who believe zimmerman was guilty. trayvon was not a innocent teen. The reason you you morons think that way is for the media keeps showing you photos of a 12 year old. I guess you haven’t seen the pics of him at 17.

Have any of you who are defending Trayvon looked at his photo after he was shot? There isn’t a mark on him except for the bullet. Yet the photos of Zimmerman show that his face was all bloody; his nose was broken and the back of his head was bleeding profusely where Trayvon had banged it into the cement. Get real. Zimmerman may have WANTED to be a cop, but it was Trayvon who was beating the crap out of him.

Well, the trial is about to come to an end and America will know if justice has been done. I will admit, Zimmerman stands a good chance of getting off. Will Zimmerman be the new O.J. Simpson?

To me this case is op en and shut. He killed this young man in cold blood and what is upsetting to me is that he and his lawyers are laughing about it. Shameful…

To all my black bruthas and sistas out there:

It all comes back to you, you’ll finally get what you deserve
Try and test that you’re bound to get served
Love’s what I got
Don’t start a RIOT
You’ll feel it when the dance gets hot

Lovin’, is what I got, I said remember that
Lovin’, is what I got, I said remember that
Lovin’, is what I got, I said remember that
Lovin’, is what I got

I have been shocked at how biased the media has been against Zimmerman. It’s also pretty bad when our own PRESIDENT chooses sides based strictly on skin color!! The media CHOSE to always show the angelic younger photo of Trayvon rather than the dope head, who was suspended 3 times, SEVENTEEN year old!!

Cathryn Delgado: That would not be MY son!! And if my son was on his 3rd suspension from school and got caught with drugs and jewelry from a break-in, he wouldn’t NEED to worry about Zimmerman, he would have to worry about his MOTHER!! Because he would be under MY house arrest! I would be home schooling him after the first suspension and he would be WISHING that he was dead because of my rules!! Part of the problem is that when kids start to get in trouble, there is no discipline whatsoever.

But to be posting a picture of a 12-yr. old is just WRONG! This is all about a carefully crafted public relations campaign.

Zimmerman is NOT guilty and it has nothing to do with race. He’s HISPANIC for God’s sake – so I guess that Blacks are the only minority that can use the race card? Zimmerman organized a Neighborhood Watch where there had been a string of robberies recently committed. Yet suddenly that is a “bad thing” and he is a Wannabe Cop??

Why in the world would Zimmerman have been on the phone and suddenly attacked Martin? It is far more likely that Martin got pissed and jumped him while Zimmerman was on the phone. Moreover, forensic pathologists testified that the shot had been made when Martin was on top of Zimmerman. Did you see Zimmerman’s bloody face and head lacerations from having it banged on the concrete? I haven’t seen any photos of Martin’s bloody face! Instead, we only see an angelic looking photo of Martin from several years ago!

I do not believe Zimmerman is guilty. The police didn’t even charge Zimmerman initially – and this was after 5 hrs of questioning. This case should be about the FACTS instead of about race. The fact is that Treyvon Martin attacked an armed man – and he picked the wrong guy to try and act tough with. All he had to do was identify himself. Instead Zimmerman had called 911 and stated that it was raining and this young man was looking in all the houses. Treyvon Martin was not a choir boy. He was on his third suspension from high school at the time. His third suspension involved women’s jewelry and a marijuana pipe and bag containing marijuana residue, which are indicative that he used dope and was in fact a thief. His backpack also contained a screwdriver such as the type used to pop open locked doors. I don’t know too many guys who aren’t drug users or thieves who are found with pipes and jewelry on their possession.

Why can’t you print a current picture of Trayvon Martin? He was not a 10 year old kid like you are trying to portray.
