After listening to the prosecution's "evidence" I was convinced Zimmerman would be exonerated. The evidence was just not there, despite the MSM trying to manipulate the case. People don't understand that once Martin went for the gun that Zim had no choice but to pull it and shoot first. Anything less and he would have been shot. One of a cops biggest fears is loosing retention of his weapon in close contact with a perp. No different in this scuffle. Martin was pretty stupid attacking Zim in a right to carry State. His stupidity cost him his life. Read the Breitbart piece about consistent, unrelenting media manipulation of the case. They were egregious in their pursuit of hanging Zim. I give Zim a less than 50% chance of surviving unless he goes expat and gets the hell out of Dodge. Wouldn't want to be a juror, either, especially the black woman once the press starts leaking their names. I'll be surprised if that doesn't happen in the next week or two. I'm glad to see justice prevail, but it was certainly a cliff hanger, you just don't know how a jury will be swayed on emotions.
