**President Obama on Friday broached the shooting of 17-year-old African-American Trayvon Martin and the subsequent trial of his shooter, providing his explanation of why the case created so much anxiety within the African-American community.
*Most of that is because Obama and many others do not take into account the evidence of any first "unlawful" act, and the evidence of the shirt and Trayvon's body gap of 4 inches.
*Plus they ignore the reality that SIX people, NOT White or Latino America, or any history of slaves or other court cases, is WHO sat in the deliberating room for over 13 hours going over the facts that "THEY" were given. Not what was in the minds of TV viewers hearing all kinds of speculation and assumptions. The jurors were not influenced by anything other than what they heard and saw in court.
*Obama just looks silly in that way of ignoring the actual court case evidence. So do the many blaming white and Latino America.
*They should ALL just try looking at JUST the evidence the SIX jurors had to lawfully come to a verdict. They were instructed as to what to consider and to apply the law to the evidence. "They" did. Not anyone esle.
When you talk about a "body gap," you're ignoring the fact that Martin was 5' 11 and 158 pounds. That's on the slight side. Zimmerman was 5'7" and 185 pounds. Just going by these statistics, it sounds like Zimmerman could have easily held his own in a fight.
As for the jury not being influenced by anything outside of the court, they weren't sequestered and were allowed unsupervised visits with friends and family.
