George Zimmerman, the Florida neighbourhood watchman who shot dead an unarmed black 17-year-old male last year, has been found not guilty.

Lawyers for Mr Zimmerman, 29, argued he acted in self-defence and with justifiable use of deadly force in the death of Trayvon Martin.

The jury retired on Friday to consider its verdict on charges of either second-degree murder or manslaughter.

Rest In Peace Trayvon Martin.

    When i saw the news this morning i was angry until i remembered that this is Florida, so i should really have not expected anything else. I really feel for all of Trayvon Martins family and friends.
    For a country that appoints itself as the leaders of the free world and also a country that pokes their nose in other countries business they sure do have a lot of states that are full of contradictory rules, human rights problems & corruption.

    I purposely didn’t follow the trial, ’cause I knew what the verdict would be. But for a split second, I thought maybe just maybe…**sighs**

    White people don’t value Black life, hell Black don’t even value Black life too.

    My thoughts go to the Trayvon’s family, not only they lost a son but this one will never have justice.

    only in america you go to prison for dog fighting but not for killing human life. a woman shot a gun in the air to warn her abusive husband to leave and she is serving 20yrs. America is confused and one day it just may implode. I pray for them

    But when black kills black, justice will be served.

    94% of murders involving black folks in the States involve other blacks. We are our own worst enemy now in 2013, no longer white people anymore and it has been that way for a long time now. Black people need to start cleaning up their own house first before they start complaning about outsiders.
