    It seems to be a mixed bag of thought amongst those I know

    This trial has been a joke, though. Unfortunately, I think he's going to walk.
    Agreed on both points.
    70% of the U.S. population now lives in a state where same-sex marriage is legal. At 36 and counting!

    Yes and that can lead to a life in prison sentence in Fla. per the article I read since the manslaughter involved a gun.

    ? Judge In Zimmerman Case Pressured by Obama Administration? Alex Jones' Infowars: There's a war on for your mind!

    DH was speaking to me about this case this AM as he was reading the news. He believes (and I have to agree) that even if Zimmerman is convicted of something in this case, that it will be considered a mistrial in the appeal because of the way this case has been handled.

    Is there NOTHING that Barack Obama doesn't have a hand in??? Now he's POSSESSED A JUDGE!!!!

    The only part of the article that appears to have any connection to the Obama administration was:

    It also emerged this week that the federal government encouraged and funded last year’s protests demanding the arrest of Zimmerman via the Community Relations Service, a division of the Department of Justice. Documents obtained by Judicial Watch show that the CRS was “deployed to Sanford, FL, following the Trayvon Martin shooting to help organize and manage rallies and protests against George Zimmerman,” spending millions of dollars in the process.
    So I'll let Slate address that:

    Trayvon Martin and the Justice Department’s Community Relations Service: Conservatives think this DOJ unit organized the rallies against George Zimmerman. - Slate Magazine

    If that was tl;dr, basically, that department was set up specifically to mediate during situations involving racial tension, which is exactly what they did, resulting in peaceful protest rallies rather than riots. Shocking!

    It does seem that GZ is going to walk. Good to know you can shoot unarmed minors in FL with impunity.

    The people I know IRL that have spoken with me about this case do believe that GZ shot TM in self defense, but that he made a lot of mistakes leading up to the altercation.

    I think he will be acquitted, I dont think the prosecution was successful in proving it was not self defense

    I'm so pissed off right now....I can't believe he was found not guilty.

    Do I think he intended to kill Trayvon in the beginning - no. But had he listened to the 911 operator and kept his sorry *** in his truck, none of this would have happened.
