do you blame it on the piss poor job the prosecution has done?  Or do you expect the defense to mount a monumental defense that does leave serious doubt?

It was clearly self defense.

I would blame it on the lack of an eyewitness. Also on the poor luck of the draw on which ME caught the case.

i think it will be the prosecutions fault. they should have charged him with manslaughter.
ETA quit quoting me people. i know they can charge him with manslaughter now

no one can prove it was. but no one can prove it wasn't either. which is why he's getting off

It all boils down to the prosecution not presenting enough solid evidence to support their claim.  They never even put forth a timeline of events they believe happened.  If I'm a juror, I want to know why the prosecution thinks the defendent is guilty, starting with a basic timeline of events - not just a bunch of spotty witnesses I can't piece together.

We'll see what the defense has to show us next week.

Because of misinformation like this..This is spreading like wildfire on facebook..UGH



This says it all about, ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN! 

 Recognize this guy?   Even Fox News doesn't use this photo
 

Do you know who this is?

 
It is Little Trayvon Martin...!  At 17 yrs of age!

 

For those of us who thought we were well informed and weren't.....quite the realty check.
That old adage applies here: "there are two sides to every story."
 
We don't always get the truth from the media.
One of my favorite rants - the government controlled media, television news, newspapers, magazines, radio; all continue to show 12 year old Trayvon; NOT 17 year old Trayvon.

In reality "little Trayvon" at the time of his death stood almost 6'2" tall and weighed 175 muscular pounds.  He had numerous run-ins with authorities (both at school and local police), had been stopped and almost arrested two days before his death for smacking a bus driver in the face, because the driver refused to let him ride for free.
He was released because the driver was told not to press charges by the bus company and to continue on his route.

When "little Trayvon" was suspended at school it was not only because he tried to bring a little marijuana in with him, he was in possession of wedding rings and other jewelry, watches, etc. that he said he "found" along with a large screwdriver while on the way to school that day.  The jewelry was turned over to the police by the school.

I am not trying to say this was a good shooting.

I am not trying to say this kid deserved to die.
I am saying the media in the USA is controlled by liberals who twist and distort what you see and hear in order for you to see things their way.

Not a single paper has printed RECENT photos of this kid, because it would not keep your interest in this case.

Not a single paper will admit that this kid was a marijuana dealer.
His friends on Facebook all say he had the "best plants". Not a single paper will show you any of his recent photos where he shows off a mouthful of gold teeth and all of his tattoos. Not a single newspaper will tell the news like it really is ...and NOT how they want you to think it is...
President Obama looked at the FIVE year old photo the media chose to show the Nation and said, "If I had a son...he would look like Trayvon.."  So from that comment should I assume you did not bother to look for the facts in this shooting..or should I assume you want a son who is a 17 year old drug dealing, gold teethed, tattooed thug whose name on one of his facebook profiles was "Wild Nigga" who 'finds" jewelry and burglary tools on the way to school? A fair and impartial news media in the USA ?  One that does not follow a preconceived agenda?  One that is NOT looking to further divide this already fractured Nation?I didn't compose this.  I'm only passing it on.Never trust the news media forWHOLE TRUTH and NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH. 


Trayvon at 12 yrs of age.. how he was shown to us!
 
 Amazing, isn't it?

I still think GZ's own words and behaviors that created the event are going to be hard to overcome. Creating an unsafe event and then claiming self defense does not sit well with many.
