Zimmerman Verdict Reached: NOT GUILTY
Now The End Begins
Jammie Wearing Fools
Was justice served?
My thoughts? This was a self-defense case for Mr. Zimmerman who was attacked by this young black man (who was bigger than the defendant) who didn't go home when he had the chance but returned to confront Zimmerman, attack him, beat him, slam his head on the pavement, and tell him, "you are going to die tonight [expletive]." Zimmerman didn't have any choice but to shoot this person in order to get him off of him and save himself from further beatings; especially when the attacker said that he wanted to kill him.
BTW, have you ever heard about the following case?

So...what do we say to those who wanted Zimmerman convicted? Well, at this point I think that a little humor might be needed:

Oh wait...I take the "humor" part back!
New Black Panther Party: 'Anything Less Than Death for Zimmerman is Not Justice'
Then again, there are those who just won't accept the verdict and won't let it go. Zimmerman will most likely remain in fear (with good reason!) for his life because...
Of course, we have the typical "Zimmerman must be a 'crazy-ass cracker' attitude and reaction" from the likes of Al Sharpton:
The Blaze.com: Al Sharpton: ‘This Is An Atrocity…a Slap in the Face to Those That Believe in Justice’
Folks...this isn't over (unfortunately). Sharpton went on to say:Rev. Al Sharpton reacted to the George Zimmerman not guilty verdict by calling it an “atrocity” and “a slap in the face to those that believe in justice in this country.”“I think that this is an atrocity, I think that it is, it is probably one of the worst situations that I have seen,” Sharpton said. “What this jury has done is establish a precedent that when you are young and fit a certain profile, you could be committing no crime, just bringing some Skittles and iced tea home to your brother and be killed and someone can claim self-defense, having been exposed with all kinds of lies, all kinds of inconsistencies.”“We had to march to even get a trial and even at trial, when he’s exposed over and over again as a liar, he is acquitted. This is a sad day in the country. I think that we clearly must move on to the next step in terms of the federal government and in terms of the civil courts. Clearly we want people to be disciplined and strategic, but this is a slap in the face to those that believe in justice in this country,” he said.
Sharpton also posted this statement:So...Mr Sharpton. Where's the justice in THIS case???
“The acquittal of George Zimmerman is a slap in the face to the American people but it is only the first round in the pursuit of justice. We intend to ask the Department of Justice to move forward as they did in the Rodney King case and we will closely monitor the civil case against Mr. Zimmerman. I will convene an emergency call with preachers tonight to discuss next steps and I intend to head to Florida in the next few days.”
