None of those complaining about the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial heard one shred of the evidence.

Everyone accused of a crime is presumed to be innocent until proven guilty by the evidence presented at the trial. A verdict must be supported by the evidence and nothing else.

The jurors heard all of the evidence and were unanimous in agreeing the prosecution did not prove he was guilty of the crimes with which he was charged. The tactics attempted by the prosecutors after the evidence was all introduced indicate even they knew they had not carried the burden of proof required for a guilty verdict.

The jurors had their sworn duty to bring in a verdict based on the evidence. They did so.

The malcontents deserve to live where people are pronounced guilty by a dictator's whim.

They are even complaining that we are entitled to defend ourselves from burglars. They seem to want to give criminals free reign. The complainers are the evil ones.
