    Omeara says this isn't about race or civil rights....Well I wonder if the boy was white and hawked down by a black man...what would they think. It's institutional racism.....the prosecutors witnesses were not prepped, prosecutors didn't put on a case until the end, all white juror, can blacks have faith in a system like that

    The state didn't put on a case until the end, it was an all white juror, white prosecutors, white defendants........and blacks didn't get justice!

    If it was Travon in Zimmermans place and did what Zimmerman did. I would say Travon was guilty. It's not about race, but right and wrong.

    Wouldn't no reasonable person have gotten out the truck after Zimmerman supposedly seen Travon circling his truck with his hand in his waist like he has a gun. I would not have got out my car no matter what because I would have been afraid what I would have done to him because of what I thought he had....and what he would do to me. Nothing good could come out of getting out of the car. You know the police is comming and you cannot arrest him because you have no cuffs or the authority. Im a grown man and I would be afraid if someone just starts following me.....especially when I try to loose them and they are still coming. They are still comming, then it would be time to fight because who knows what they want? to rob, rape, kill....

    Zimmerman will be Guilty! The jury has asked for evidence and the evidence proves he has been lying all through the story. Why would an innocent, justified person have to make up lies? Cause he knows he was wrong. I believe Zimmerman was hoping Travon had a weapon and the way he approached Travon and what he did to him would jeopardize him becoming a cop, so he killed him to silence the evidence.

    Mark O Meara did a lousy finish today! He was just rambling in a monotone voice going over everything we already knew. He started the trial putting down the Jury telling them they know nothing and he ended it telling them the same thing. He gave no evidence to the lies Zimmerman told, just left it up to the jury to figure out why a child died, while Zimmerman is sitting right their and could come out with the truth. John Guy did awesome.....Appealed right to the heart which is the crux of this case which leads to all the evidence and what was in Zimmermans heart when he took Travons life...ill will and a depraved mind. Pray for the Jurors to render Justice..

    Nancy Grace is awesome! She's Tuff as nails, smart, and out duels most males. Whoever think women can't hold their own need to look at her. She is doing Travon justice.....

    Prosecution did a pretty good job today. He pretty much shredded Zimmermans lies piece by piece. This should have been done all through out the case though. They could have beat to death that Travon had no blood on his hands, was impossible for him to reach the gun, hardly no bruises on travons hands which you would have if your pummeling someone, Zimmerman had small bruises..... This could have been continuously corroborated with the corner, and other physicians. But they did a great job today. Hopefully justice prevails!

    The state in the Zimmerman case just don't seem to be digging deep enough.....they touch on points but just as it gets hot they move on. Why did they let the gym trainer get away with just saying Zimmerman went their for one year and couldn't throw a punch? How is that possible. Is that a precedence at other gyms? what skills did he practice to loose all that weight,90 lbs. They didn't find other members from gym who could probably say Zimmerman sparred and had great skills. They could have beat it to death that Zimmerman flat out lied on Hannity and what was the reason he would lie? Where was the interview of the head of Neighborhood watch.....who could have given the correct protocol in what's allowable or aggregious to their rules. What happened to an expert in concealed weapons who teaches those classes who would have explained proper use of your weapon. Zimmerman was building up ill will when he spoke to that neighbor who had her home broken into over 20 times.....that seems obsessive.How can Travon cover his mouth, reach for gun, be pounding his head all at the same time?..if that was the case Zimmerman supposedly calls for help would have been muffled. What happened during those TWO minutes when Zimmerman got out the car while Travon was still on the phone...NOBODY SAYS.... He had to be stalking Travon all that time. The state just seems to say as long as we can say we covered certain things...then it clears them. But they had enough information to go even deeper.
    Is this case a classic case of institutional racism? The state doesn't try real hard to convict.....It's an all white jury....exc., Where the system is set up for you to fail....

    Zimmerman is trained in grappling, wrestling, exactly what he had Travon in. His trainer is lying, how do you go to a gym, three days a week and learn nothing. Zimmerman learned a lot of those moves and was roping doping Travon, to only get hurt enough to build a self defense case which he told Hannity he knew nothing about. Why would he tell Hannity he knew nothing about self defense cases, because he knew that's how he formed what he was going to do. It's all simple.....he had self defense classes, grappling classes, ill, will intent, continuously following a person, disobeying neighborhood watch rules, disobeying law authority And he was skinny and in shape when he did the murder, ITS GUILTY!

    I 100% believe Zimmerman set this situation up. Look at all the evidence, it points to a set up. First of all, who takes MMA classes for a whole year and learns nothing......He had to get a lot out of those classes, especially to loose 90 pounds, you have to be doing sum intense skill training. My step son was tons better in just two weeks. Zimmerman knows how to wrestle, how to put people in stronghold positions, box, he knows how to shoot a it wasn't a mistake where he shot him. Zimmerman didn't have no problem fighting the cop which he clearly has a record of. This is really sum evil have all this evidence of a set up just staring you in the face and he isn't under the jail.

    It sounds like Travon screaming for help but at the end it seems like Zimmerman tries to out do Travon by screaming two loud screeches before shooting him. Zimmerman knew that people could hear Travon and the only way to get out of this assault was to give those two loud screams and silence him. The first yells sound more deeper and then the last two are high pitches right before he shoots.. If it was Zimmerman why wasn't he still screaming and shook up after the shooting. The first person said he was calm.
