I watched the entire case and almost every news segment reporting the case. I only have one thing to say to everyone who thinks Zimmerman was innocent and those who were involved in defending him. What goes around comes around. Remember what you say and what you do on earth because when you die God will judge you accordingly. It does not matter what color you are. How can a man who is’nt a cop chase someone with a gun and not get punished? How can a man who takes the life of an unarmed person not be guilty? Obviously Zimmerman just wanted to kill someone and that is exactly what he did. Zimmerman did the chasing. 911 told Zimmerman to stand down and he did not listen. The injustices of our judicial system are horrid. God will punish Zimmerman , who defended him , and those who agree with the verdict. Why should it matter how tall Trayvon was or whether he smoked weed? Trayvon was unarmed. Trayvon was the one getting chased.Also if someone was chasing me with a gun I would try and fight for my life too. What would you do if someone chased you with a gun ,who was’nt a police officer? Would you be scared? Would you not try to fight for your life? The very fact that 911 told Zimmerman to stand down and he still followed in pursuit should have proved his guilt. He should have at least been charged for chasing someone that was unarmed with a gun because there was proof of him doing that. It is so sad to see that nothing has changed after everything we have been through as a society. Things only continue to get worse.

The NOT GUILTY verdict for Mr. George Zimmerman’s murder
trial is a naked travesty and miscarriage of justice.

WORLD ANTI-DEFAMATION LEAGUE OF AFRICA, ADLA (with the
support of WORLD CONGRESS OF NATIONS, WORCON and 500 other International
African and non-African organizations and human, civil rights groups)
vehemently denounces, condemn and reject it.

After examining the facts of the case, we strongly maintain
and declare that Mr. George Zimmerman is guilty of murdering Mr. Trayvon Martin
and must be found guilty and punished for it.

The blood of Africans and all people of African ancestry
GLOBALLY is no long as cheap as it used to be, and cannot be shed at random
with impunity anymore.

On the other hand, we’ll not support any kind of rioting or
protest by Africans and African Americans anywhere in the world due to the rage
for this injustice.

WORLD ANTI-DEFAMATION LEAGUE OF AFRICA (ADLA) IS DEDICATED
TO GUIDING, PROTECTING, FIGHTING AND
ADVOCATING FOR THE BEST INTERESTS OF AFRICANS, AFRICAN AMERICANS GLOBALLY AND TO STOP ALL INJUSTICE, CIVIL, HUMAN AND SOCIAL ABUSES, EXPLOITATIONS AND OPPRESSIONS OF AFRICANS AND AFRICAN AMERICANS GLOBALLY.

by breaking the law and showing disrespect to law and order.

You are not advocating for blacks, you are promoting racism. You want blacks to continue to hate obviously all races. Zimmerman is hispanic!!!!!!! You are promoting hate and should be ashamed of yourself! I am black, by the way, and I’m trying to teach my children to follow the law and to not hate people of other races! You should be ashamed! This was not a child, he was a 6’2 17 year old who attacked another human being! Thank God for Zimmerman being found not guilty!

You should try to teach your children that it’s not ok to follow a person who hasn’t done anything wrong , initiate conflict and shoot them. That’s called murder, and I hope that it never happens to anyone you love.

Nick – If more people were like you, we would not have the racial tensions that exist. I will admit that 40 years ago, racism was rampant. And even to this date, there are problems that minorities face. But many of these problems are brought about because of their own misdirection. You see blacks and Hispanics dropping out of school and running with gangs and breaking the law. I DO feel that it takes a lot for many of them to rise above their situation in life, but many of them get so lost almost from the beginning. I honestly felt that Trayvon was more of a racist than Zimmerman in this case. Trayvon should have identified himself and then gone home. Even his GF advised him to run home. Instead, he decided to engage in a fight and unfortunately for both – it was the wrong thing to do.

I rarely posts anything that’s not science or anti-religious related,because it’s my personal opinion that those are bigger issues in 2013. But I thought it was time I talked about the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin Case after reading all the hateful comments by Facebook colleagues (think I’ll have to delete some of you) and around the internet.
I don’t know what transpired that night only George Zimmerman knows. What transpired is by a millimeter Circumstantial at best. For all I know Zimmerman took his Gun out, told the kid to freeze and a struggle took place where Trayvon thought his life was in danger and apparently it was because he’s dead now. The only facts i do know is that a kid minding his own business was profiled and followed because of the way he dressed (on a rainy night) and the color of his skin. For those of you who say it’s legal to profile , it’s legal to follow someone , really needs to do some some self-reflection. It’s not o.k, to profile someone or discriminate against someone because of the way they look or because they don’t fit into your definition of what “normal” should look like. We say we live in a free society , free from discrimination where you can dress how ever you want, do what ever you want once it doesn’t infringe on someone else’s freedoms but I guess to George Zimmerman that doesn’t include being black and wearing a hoodie in the rain.
This isn’t a black and white conversation. It is a conversation about the perception of how black males are viewed as being a threat. I’m a good looking 6 ft 2 inches , 250 lb dark skinned beast of a man. I can understand how i can seem threatening but those who know me , know I’m a gentle giant. And this is my point, as the old saying goes “you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover”. I would like to change that to you shouldn’t profile a book by it’s color.
This brings me to my last point . People of all colors, gender, sexual orientation, creed are discriminated against everyday. I’ve seen whites being discriminated against, Asians being discriminated against, Muslims being discriminated against. In 2013 it’s time to stop profiling anyone of any color, gender, sexual orientation etc. No need for Xenophobia, Homophobia, etc. The only phobias we should have is our Government and Religion. The survival of the Human Race depends on it my fellow Homo sapiens .

You know at first I also thought that Zimmerman shot Trayvon in cold blood, because the media twisted the facts…….I am not sure why but the media has a deliberate agenda to destroy race relations……they knew that Zimmerman was Hispanic yet they continued to say he was white and this was a hate crime. Zimmerman was not following Trayvon – during the 911 call he needed to tell the 911 operator what address he had last seen a person walking in the middle of the night in a gated community that has been burglarized over and over and over….from petty theft to breaking and entering. Trayvon hid in bushes and confronted Zimmerman before the police arrived and proceeded to bash Zimmermans nose in knocking him to the ground and hitting his head on concrete over and over and over again. The pictures the media continues to show including this site shows an angelic 12 year old boy when in fact Trayvon was 6’2 and obviously not afraid of Zimmerman or for that matter anyone else. Trayvon was a troubled youth like so many of our youth today. In Chicago we have a HUGE problem in the African American community – they are literally killing each other for no apparent reason than sport…..on July 4 there were 70 young black Americans shot in Chicago by African Americans – I am not sure how many have died – but the shootings were random, heartless, shameless, horrible, crimes with no motive other than it was July 4 and lets get crazy. Wasn’t it Bill Cosby who said that parents need to look at themselves in the mirror and hold themselves accountable for what seems to be turning into a lost generation – for that matter several generations lost since the 1960′s to I am not sure what or why. I live in suburban Chicago and attend a church that is probably at least if not more 50% African American – wonderful people no different than their white counterparts – the difference between these people from those that choose to live life low is they hold themselves accountable….they hold their children accountable. Had George Zimmerman died we would not have heard about this crime. Trayvon would have run away and I doubt would ever have been caught. Again the media sweeps crimes of certain races under the rug and fails to report them – even when Black youth are killing themselves by the thousands. I know African Americans who are afraid to go into black neighborhoods in Chicago – Are they racist? Or have they wisely learned that sometimes you dare not go where evil lurks no matter what color the person wears on the outside. We need to realize that something is terribly broken in our society in our World. Our youth give testament that we have failed miserably.

Furthermore….We as a society as a people need to hold ourselves accountable. I truly believe that all of this is caused by those that control us – the so called ELITE. They have set us up so that we will destroy ourselves. And you know what remember this everyone the Media is controlled by this ELITE HUMANS that feed off the rest of us. The media is doing their job to create a society that is in utter chaos, broken one that will eventually implode on itself.

I am a black male and I see how the youth in our society are behaving. Parents are teaching their children to hate whites and giving them permission to be above the law because they can just cry racism. Teach your children better!! By the way Zimmerman is Hispanic! Are you not being the racist? If Zimmerman was black, this conversation would not be happening along with the media circus!

Finally!! someone in here did watch the whole trial. Someone who knows something about the trial and who are the people that are involved,, unlike these stupid celebrities who think that they know anything, when the truth is, they don’t really know anything, they just based their judgements from the media who’s feeding the public a really twisted information about the event.
The media been showing pictures of Martin like he’s a nice fine young lad, they forget to show the pictures of Martin where he’s holding a gun and weed. If you want it to be fair, show the people the good side and the bad side of all the people that are involved,
Idiots are those people who think that the jurors based their decision because of race, when it’s not.

The defense team really did a great job in court, while the prosecution team was really awful. As far as I know, justice is already served.. The prosecution had their chance to convict GZ. What’s the use of due process if we don’t use it accordingly?, the jury’s decision was based on the evidences that’s been laid by the defense team. As what they say innocent until proven guilty, and surely the prosecution team didn’t do their best to prove that Zimmerman is guilty. This is true justice.

Hey Wez, what planet are you from? Justice was not served. Zimerman commited a serious crime and was never punished because of a jury made up of dumb stupid people with no brain cells in their heads. Maybe someday, when someone you love dearly gets shot down by a gunman and is let go scotch free, then maybe you’ll come to your senses. and to the person who said “if blacks have souls”, I’m black, and yes I have a soul. I’m not a thug, I’m a sivilized person.
