*****Jurors: Zimmerman not guilty of 2nd-degree murder
****So ends the railroad job they tried to pull on him..let's just see if the riots happen.
***I don't think that citizens like George Zimmerman or anyone else should be able to confront people with lethal force and play cop. There is no justification that I can think of that allows private citizens to confront people if they aren't in imminent danger. What's to stop anyone from confronting anyone else and using lethal force if this is allowed? Tonight's ruling simply allows vigilantes to act more easily. It's not the mark of civilized society to let people take the law into their own hands. Florida has a problem with its juries, its laws or both. I don't see how this can't be a bizarre and dumb decision. I don't know how often this happened in the past but some places in our country still have very strange customs and laws.
**'Confront' is the key word...The jurors have said they're not convinced it was Zimmerman who was the one confronting.. It's 'Ifs' versus the actual laws ... Some want to stop with "If Zimmerman hadn't done this, etc."... It doesn't appear that he broke any laws by keeping an eye on Martin, whether one considers it a good or bad idea... We wind up back at the question of whether Zimmerman believed his life was in danger at the time he fired the gun... Even if one disagrees with how Zimmerman chose to handle the situation prior to that...
*you got it

Good. That's fine because according to the FACTS of the case Zimmerman did NOT confront Martin. Martin attacked Zimmerman.
It's just too easy to read all sorts of issues into this that were never part of the case. Thank God the jurors faced the facts and came to the only just conclusion there could've been,
