I found a great analysis of the case and where it stands as of right now on ABCnews.com – it explains all the necessary details and the need for the prosecutor and their team to prove guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, which, in my book, they have not done, but that is up to the jurors to decide). The excellent Zimmerman analysis can be found here:
Read the analysis and other news out there (the Drudge Report – Drudgereport.com or CNN are excellent places to start and see the latest news on these and other current events) and let us know what you think. Do you think that Trayvon Martin was the victim of Zimmerman and that he shot him for no reason? Do you believe that Zimmerman is totally justified under the controversial, but valid Stand Your Ground law in Florida?
Was Trayvon Martin up to no good when he was meandering through the neighborhood prior to his death? Or was he just innocently taking a walk in the rain munching on Skittles? Whom is more believable in their testimony of whom the screamer’s voice pleading for help belongs to? Trayvon’s mother or Zimmerman’s? What do you think the outcome will be?
On the other hand, if the case were switched up and Martin had shot Zimmerman what would be different? Would they prosecute it stronger, quicker, lighter or slower? IS that fair? Would Al Sharpton and other black leaders have gotten involved for the Zimmerman family? What do you think?
If Zimmerman gets acquitted should their be legal ramifications to the prosecution team for bringing such a questionable and poor case and wasting millions of dollars in tax payer dollars? Should someone be disbarred or put in jail like happened to Mike NiFong in North Carolina. Or should it just be written off as a cost of our justice system and our Bill of Rights?
Here are some more great resources with respect to the Zimmerman trial:
As we all know by now, Zimmerman was acquitted of all charges in the state of Florida. Al Sharpton and the NAACP are calling it a tragedy and are calling for a boycott on the state of FLorida. Clearly the case did not have enough evidence to support a conviction of any kind. This is not to say that Zimmerman wasn’t guilty. There just wasn’t enough evidence. It is sad whenever someone dies and no parent should ever have to lose their child nor have to live their life in the media while waiting to see the outcome.
What do you think? Do you agree or disagree with the verdict? Do you think the justice department needs to open a civil rights violation case or not? What are your thoughts on the Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman case? Feel free to post your comments.
