All comments ranting about Zimmerman will be met with "you mad".
It's not even an insult, you are inherently mad.

Let there be no mistake of what happened that night:
>8th Grader Trayvon Martin is walking home in his graduation cap and gown
>Aryan Nation member George Zimmerman driving around in his Confederate Flag draped pickup
>Zimmerman spots Trayvon through the night by the glow of his halo
>The Klansman takes chase
>The football star nearly outruns him, but he is trapped by a "do not enter" sign
>Faced with certain death or disobeying the law, he makes his stand
>Trayvon attempts to reason his attacker, but the illiterate racist will have none of it
>Zimmerman steps out of his vehicle and asks "Any last words?"
>Trayvon looks his executioner in the eye and replies "World Peace"
>"WHITE POWER!" exclaims Zimmerman as he unloads with his fully-automatic assault rifle
>If not for the Republican party he may have survived, but the skinhead's extended magazine, unfettered by their legislation unloads hundreds of rounds into the future Nobel Piece Prize recipient
>Zimmerman then bashes his own head into the curb repeatedly screaming "help me!"
>When he is finished, Hitler himself steps back into his gas-guzzling vehicle
>As Trayvon lay dying, the last thing he sees is the "Bush Cheney 2004" bumper sticker disapear into the night

This will be the only reply I post to ANY Zimmerman thing.

Regardless of what happened (NONE of us can say what happened, we weren't there. All we see if the media's portrayal that a large white man brutally murdered a sweet tempered black child in cold blood. We have NO idea what happened leading up to that, say whatever you want about racism and such) the jurors did what they were supposed to do: look at the evidence in front of them, and make a decision about whether or not there was enough evidence to convict Zimmerman. None of us can say what happened, we did not see all the evidence. Not to mention 98% of what you all "know" about the case is from Facebook Shares.

I am prepared for My **** Storm now.
User avatar #21 to #2 - sketchE (07/14/2013) [-]
as has been said while none of us were there we can peice together what happened based on what was given during the trial. most of zimmermans defense is backed up by recordings and eyewitness reports. martin on the other hand had his retarded girlfriend and a black family fueled by the racism theme
#58 to #2 - eyeballfrog (07/15/2013) [-]
I don't have anything to say. I'm just trying to get people to use a better quality version of that reaction image.
User avatar #3 to #2 - I Am Monkey (07/14/2013) [-]
None of us can no for sure what happened, but you can infer from the evidence. Trayvon liked to fight. He had been suspended for fighting. He had many text and twitter posts involving fighting. If the question is "Started the fight?" the answer is pretty obvious. The last person who talked to him said that a "creepy ass cracker" was following him. In Trayvon's world a reasonable response to being followed is to beat the hell out of that person. Did he just punch him in the face or subdue him? No, he got on top of him and started to beat the **** out of him, because that's how he rolls. According to one of his twitter friend's, he didn't make his last opponent "bleed enough". Unfortunately for him, this opponent was armed.

Then there's the unresolved issue of the scream. The audio track you'll hear on the news is a scream and a gunshot. Implying that Trayvon saw the gun and screamed before being shot. However, in the full audio tape there is nearly a minute of screaming "help me!". This unequivocally proves it to be Zimmerman's voice. He was the man being beaten. All of the injuries in the fight were sustained by Zimmerman other than the gunshot wound. Unless Trayvon was on top of him hysterically screaming "Help me!" while beating him, I don't see any other explanation.
#4 to #3 - mbasm (07/14/2013) [-]
By United States law, not all evidence is released to the media.

I don't really care either way, I didn't follow the case, to me it's just one more person killing another person, happens everyday.

I am just sick of people screaming about how the case is about racism, and how innocent the little boy was. Trayvon was, frankly, a thug. He is not innocent. Zimmerman was not a saint by ANY means, both of them had pasts that are quite dark.
User avatar #34 to #3 - ImsoObvious (07/14/2013) [-]
Please explain this story to every racially black person. Please.

Have not met/saw one person who is black who supports zimmerman or beleives he is not guilty.
#57 to #3 - anon (07/15/2013) [-]
you forgot to point out that the injuries that zimmerman acquired did not match the detail that he was having his head smashed into cement. Scrapes and a bloody nose doesn't come from having your head slammed into cement. As to infer that because Treyvon is a fighter he started the fight you can also infer that Zimmerman was an angry vigilante looking to put blame on someone, you can infer that by the tape of him saying "I'm going to get this asshole" under his breathe on recording the prosecution played. You can look at both sides of the story and INFER that something happened due to the other yet that doesn't make your answer in defending Zimmerman logical. Nor does saying Zimmerman did it logical. All you can say is that a wrong was committed and one person is now dead when all of this could have been avoided when the police told zimmerman to leave him until they got there. You can't be close minded in a case like this because all the evidence isn't there. Race is irrelevent
User avatar #24 to #3 - HarvietheDinkle (07/14/2013) [-]
I disagree with your first paragraph, because like you said, you cannot actually say what happened that night (yes, it's an inference, but still...)

However, I still agree with you that the trial ended in a just manner - but for a different reason: there is much doubt about what actually happened that night, and jurors should not convict if there's reasonable doubt.

Now, most of the evidence does point in Zimmerman's favor. I'm just taking issue with people making extreme stances one way or the other because there's so much doubt.
User avatar #5 to #3 - lolollo (07/14/2013) [-]
Then this is an example of a typical punk finally messing with the wrong guy. We see this every day. This one just so happened to involve a long, drawn out controversy where people had to make a point of putting race in the forefront.

Either way, the jury has found their ruling. This is as official to "the truth" as we can possibly get as a society, so all of this **** about "the court system being flawed" is just retarded.

(Keep in mind that I'm haing this same discussion in other parts of the internet.)
User avatar #6 to #5 - I Am Monkey (07/14/2013) [-]
Funnyjunk seems much more informed than most sites I've been on. You go on facebook or reddit and you've got people that still think Zimmerman just walked up and shot him because racism.
User avatar #7 to #6 - lolollo (07/14/2013) [-]
I checked facebook the second I heard, concretely, that he was found not guilty.

Lucky for me, it hasn't exploded in a rage of hate and violence. In fact, the only thing I did see was somebody agreeing with the philosophy of "tried by twelve > buried by 6" that was essentially used in Zimmerman's favor, but I guaruntee it'll go full retarded by morning...

Zimmerman was carrying a gun and admitted to following Martin. i don't care what Martin was upto, if you're armed and you decide to follow someone around, who you suspect of criminal activity, you're A : a ******* moron, and B: sholdn't be in the possession of a firearm.

Whatever Martin was upto, Zimmerman was in the wrong.

That said, there are still the Man2 and Murder3 charges against him, and various other charges, so he's not actually free.
#175 to #3 - iamflowseidon (07/15/2013) [-]
You insinuate that Trayvon started the fight, but if Zimmerman was following around a kid who was minding his own business, and he got out of the car to confront Trayvon instead of being dragged out of his car and beaten, then I agree that it is "pretty obvious", but Zimmerman started it.

I'm not much of a fighter, I probably would have booked **** in his shoes, but Trayvon was a fighter, and an old man was following him around in a truck and then got out to confront him. So he fought the ************ . And even if he did throw the first blow, Zimmerman instigated the whole thing, so the whole self defense thing is ******** . I'm not saying that he is 100% guilty, and by the laws of this country he should not go to jail, but to defend him is ridiculous

I thought the experts said it was Martin's scream
#54 to #46 - pxthreezerothree (07/14/2013) [-]
An expert said it wasn't Zimmerman. The judge, who wasn't exactly friendly to the defense, threw out his testimony. Another expert in Britain said that guy's findings were indefensible. Friends and family from both sides say it was their loved one screaming on the tape. So inconclusive at best.
User avatar #43 - backupclover (07/14/2013) [-]
My problem is, Zimmerman had no reason to follow Martin at all, the cops told him not to too.

No it doesn't, not when it's illegal, it's completely irrelevant to the case, especially because trayvon clearly threw the first punch

"Clearly" were you there?
#266 to #265 - trolljunkusa ONLINE (07/18/2013) [-]
Well based on this evidence

And the fact that the only wounds traybon had was knuckle wounds and a gunshot
#178 to #43 - anon (07/15/2013) [-]
George Zimmerman was on neighborhood watch. A job for which he volunteered. He was simply doing a task that was part of that job. Furthermore after calling the police he took their advice and stopped pursuing Trayvon in his truck. He parked his vehicle and got out to leave the area. Trayvon, who was aware that he was earlier being followed, chose to hide in some bushes and jump Zimmerman, who had given up the pursuit. So at the point of the attack Zimmerman was NOT following Martin any longer and DID what the cops told him to do.

User avatar #134 to #43 - klaes (07/15/2013) [-]
From the transcript:

"Dispatcher: Are you following him
Zimmerman: Yeah
Dispatcher: We don't need you to do that."

If you see a man hanging off the edge of a cliff and tell the cops, they'll tell you they are sending cops and that you don't need to help the man. The reason for this is that they don't want to be liable. It's NOT an order, but a suggestion. Just clearing that up.
#146 to #134 - anon (07/15/2013) [-]
Oh, I'm sorry, I forgot Treyvon was walking around smoking his crack cocaine while flashing a gun-

Oh wait, that's right, HE WASN'T. It breaks down because HE [Zimmerman] DIDN'T NEED TO [follow treyvon]. He reported a suspicious person AND SHOULD HAVE LEFT IT AT THAT. Anything after that (for good or ill) was on Zimmerman's shoulders.
User avatar #151 to #146 - klaes (07/15/2013) [-]
...I never said he should have been following him....

If you read my comment, I was just clarifying that when cops say that it's not an order. But I guess you were too busy throwing out a strawman argument to read what I said.
#66 to #43 - tinypoodle (07/15/2013) [-]
Maybe because he was a wannabe cop and saw his chance? Wasn't a good reason, but a reason.
User avatar #68 to #66 - backupclover (07/15/2013) [-]

Kinda, what did Trayvon do? Why did he need to follow him?
#141 to #43 - dabobyjoeson (07/15/2013) [-]
The thing is, the guy on the line is required to say "we don't need you to do that", even if you were to say "my friend is choking, should I try the heimlick?", or they would be liable for any harm. Also this was advised by the dispatcher and not ordered, he broke no laws by following him anyway.

The important thing that people need to understand about this is:
>Travon was proven to be the first to break the law by fighting

>Zimmerman was getting his ass kicked, and if you had a gun, im shure you wouldnt sit there and "Take it like a man"

>The public has no say in Justice SO THERE IS NO NEED TO RIOT AND PROTEST

#80 to #71 - anon (07/15/2013) [-]
Zimmerman was in his car. Saw young black male named Trayvon. He killed Trayvon. Everything else only Zimmerman knows what happened as the other one who knows is dead. What likely happened is Zimmerman followed Trayvon, incited him to attack, and then killed him. It is also possible that Trayvon did attack for no reason, but I don't really think he did. Jury disagreed though. Or rather they thought that there was enough "reasonable doubt" not to put the man in jail.
User avatar #93 to #71 - derpyhoovezz (07/15/2013) [-]
Zimmerman saw Trayvon being a ****** and what not, called the cops
Cops told him he should stay back and let them take care of it, there sending a officer
He didnt want to let another one get away "They always get away" he stated...
He confronted Trayvon, trayvon goes ******* and beats up Zimmerman (There are pictures of him after, all ****** up) beating his head against the concrete and all
So zimmerman does what any other weak man getting his ass whoped would do if give then chance, he pulls out his gun and shoots him
User avatar #136 to #93 - trolljunkusa ONLINE (07/15/2013) [-]
He wasn't weak.

Take for granted, the Crofton bike murder

>Kids are bullying this one kid on a bike
>Kids push him off bike
>Kid on bike hits his head
>Kid on bike dies instantly

If zimmerman had been hit hard enough in the right spot, he wouldn't be alive, trayvon would of. I would of shot that ************ too. It's not illegal to confront someone/question someone
User avatar #157 to #136 - derpyhoovezz (07/15/2013) [-]

infact that was one of my points

It's a little bias towards the opposite end, but it has a lot of great info:

"The Truth About George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin "
www.youtube.com/watch?v=bF-Ax5E8EJc

Honestly, looking at it in purely legal terms Not Guilty was the right call.

Why Zimmerman is not guilty

>There was a video of a trayvon beating up zimmerman
>Voices that were not trayvons screaming "Help, Help, Help!"
>The only wounds trayvon had was a gun shot wound, and bruises on his fist
>Zimmerman had bruises all over his face

If you actually thing zimmerman is guilty, kill your ******* self

lol, i think the problem stems in the fact that can we take what he is saying as fact? the problem is we don't know what happened for sure, none of us realy ever will. both sides claimed that the voice was zimmermans and martins respectively. nevertheless i think it probably was better he was acquitted, there simply was not enough evidence against him, and many people were influenced by the media. we cant just convict someone based on the fact that oh he might have been racist, and might have discriminated, yes thats wrong, but its not how the legal system works

A guy named George Zimmerman shot a black kid for evidently no reason and killed him about a year ago.
User avatar #51 to #40 - cantbackdown (07/14/2013) [-]
Zimmerman was being prosecuted because he shot a black kid in self-defense. Zimmerman was part of a neighborhood watch and when he saw Martin he thought he looked suspicious. Zimmerman called the cops and was watching the kid when the kid attacked him. Basically there was a trial because a white guy killed a black kid. Everyone thought it was a race thing

User avatar #52 to #40 - unikornking ONLINE (07/14/2013) [-]
I'll explain what I know, but I don't know much since I haven't watched any news or **** to get this info.Zimmerman was in a neighborhood (this story is what he says happened) where a few breakins had happened recenty and he saw a suspicious black kid walking around the streets super late and called 911 informing them,he said he was going to follow him and the person he was talking to said don't, go home police will handle this. 10 mins later police show up and kid dead zimmerman injured he said kid tryed to kill him or something so he pulled his gun and killed him in self defense. Police closed case as self defense then this reached the public and then people demanded a trial and trying to make it a race thing when zimmerman isn't even caucasian. Also, kind of ridiculous trial happened like over a year after the events
#109 to #52 - thepink ONLINE (07/15/2013) [-]
trials take a while to actually reach court. It's not like I can perform a felony today and be tried tomorrow. There's a lot of investigations taking place, papers need to be served, juries have to be picked, lawyers have to get their **** together.

As for the race thing he profiled Martin as a suspicious black kid in a neighborhood with a lot of break ins, to the point where he felt the need to report him and chase him down. It doesn't have to be white guy vs black guy to get racial - though it goes both ways. In all major news stories after the incident a young school picture of Trayvon was used as opposed to what he most recently looked like, which was a stereotypical black teen. The more recent and realistic image isn't as sympathetic to audiences. The news wanted this to be a big racial issue because it's just more interesting that way.
