    A man has to earn a living!

    While i think Zimmerman is a complete POS, I believe the prosecution should pay the legal fees of anyone who is aquitted. Its unfair to have to pay millions for denfending yourself against charges ajury found tyou arent guilty of. Prosecution is the states responsibility, if they do it incorrectly they should foot the bill!

    @gammler I am no lawyer, so i probably dont have the concept correct, but i thought that just protected the goverment itself from prosecution/lawsuits? It shouldnt pevent them from covering the legal charges of somebody who is wrongly prosecuted.

    @JimCO55 I think you have to be really poor for that, and zimmerman had an income and residence at the time.

    I spent the week-end in jail once as a young guy in my early 20's (Bar Fight), i wasnt making a damn thing for income being just off active duty. I had a job that paid a bit better than minimum, but not much. The Judge stated i made too much money to qualify for a public defender.

    While I agree we should move on, I think it is the left and the gun control agenda that has had its 15 minutes of fame.

    @AlexMIA Well said. ZImmerman is no rocket scientist, but he had the right to defend himself, and the media dirtbags used him as a playtoy to discredit gun owners.
    Screw you antis! The only reason you even have the right to talk your trash is because gun owners protect that right for you. Suck on that awhile while I keep watch over the Constitution for you.

    @NoBamamama Yep, if you're gonna pick a fight, make sure he's smaller than you, and also make sure you've got a gun just in case he's tougher than he looks. The Second Amendment says that.

    Every gun death is exploited to the max, but a person who saved his life with a gun gets the perpetual panties-in-a-wad crowd outraged every time he leaves his house.
    How would you suggest he pay off the millions he owes his lawyer?

    @BobSmith ...Martin should have bashed his skull in, he had every right to. Problem is, if he did, he would be in prison for life.

    What else would be expected? George was charging around being a wannabe police officer after his wife had left him. Hardly a table guy. Sure glad he didn't become a cop.

    I have no sympathy for Zimmerman, he put himself into this situation by ignoring the advice of the police dispatcher ... I'm sure that there isn't a night that goes by that he doesn't kick himself for being so bullheaded!

    As all of the "pro-Trayvon, poor Trayvon" crowd, I doubt you read the actual 911 transcripts (not a police dispatcher, but a 911 operator). They were asking him questions about giving a description and where the suspect was. He had gotten out of his vehicle and was already in the process of looking around for answers to the questions he was being asked when the 911 operator told him "we don't need you to do that". He said "okay" and was headed back to his vehicle when Trayvon the wannabe thug jumped him. Read the transcripts and educate yourself before speaking in such an uninformed manner.

    @Thinkpeople : Really, then why did the dispatcher answer with - Sanford Police Department, rather then- 911, how may I direct your call? And if Zimmerman was heading back to his vehicle ... then why did he mention that the individual was running away and that he was following him? How do you follow someone from your vehicle while at the same time, head back to your vehicle? Guess you are right ... one of us needs a lesson on reading comprehension?

    Dispatcher: Sanford Police Department..........

    Zimmerman: No, you go in, straight through the entrance, and then you make a left-- you go straight in, don't turn, and make a left. Shit, he's running.

    Dispatcher: He's running? Which way is he running?

    Zimmerman: Down towards the other entrance to the neighborhood.

    Dispatcher: Which entrance is that that he's heading towards?

    Zimmerman: The back entrance... fucking punks.

    Dispatcher: Are you following him?

    Zimmerman: Yeah.

    Dispatcher: Okay, we don't need you to do that.

    Zimmerman: Okay.

    Dispatcher: Alright, sir, what is your name?

    Zimmerman: George. He ran.

    @Thinkpeople : Let me add one more point, I have CAC permit and had Zimmerman followed me in his truck, then got out to pursue me on foot, I too would've turned to confront him and it wouldn't be just a bag of skittles in my hand!

    I feel sorry for him. It seems that he is unable to get a job and living on the street. The world has turned against him.
    He should qualify for medical care through Obamacare and deal with his PTSD. That might enable him to work.

    If he had gainful employment he wouldn't be riding around as a freelance unpaid vigilante in the first place.
    Violence is largely the province of young males with excess time on their hands, whether they be black or white, American or Arabic, or anything else. It's primate hormones; somebody needs to defend the tribe's territory against interlopers, females are too valuable and don't need equal numbers of males for fertility, older males are both less valuable as fighters, and more valuable for their experience. So evolution gives us fights between George and Trayvon over turf.

    I own guns and knives for personal protection among other things and I hope to never have to use them against another person. Those going to get an autograph from someone who "had" to use one kind of makes those of us that advocate for ccw and argue we hope to never have to use one look bad. Anyone who goes to get that mans autograph when he has no accomplishments besides "defending" himself once are hero worshipping the guy for doing something they should hope to never have to do.

    Had and defending are in quotations just because I know it's still hotly debated even though the court ruled he acted correctly. It is my opinion he got himself into a situation he could have avoided very easily but he still acted legally.

    He is 2.5 million in debt. How was he going to pay for it? Or do you think somone else should pay his way.

    @LarryV what are they to blame for, that he is broke, homeless and not going to school ? Your reply makes no sense to poltal's comment. Or mine. Feel free to hate guns and gun owners but your rants should at least make sense.

    @abqrock..... my comment was a reply to post #53.

    . I don't hate guns, I have guns, I don't hate gun owners, I AM a gun owner. You should know what you are ranting about before you hit the post button.

    Didn't take long to see the old "child killer" comment...like Martin was a little 12 year old.

    The kid was 17...less than a year where he is considered an adult, as is the size of an adult.

    That being said, I wish the lib media would just let this guy slip back into the woodwork. His 15 minutes of fame are long over.

    George Zimmerman was duly acquitted in a court of law. He has the right to go where he wants to go, and do whatever he wants to do, as long as it's legal.

    The zimmerman trial proves that there can be severe repercussions to firing a weapon, even in self defense.

    Only COPS get away with that and not sweat about it.

    2.5 million dollars is an extremely low price to charge for getting away with murder especially that of an innocent 17 year old kid. You gotta pay the cost to be the boss and he just grossly miscalculated the depth of his pockets. What I find distasteful is this notion that he was defending himself. What was he defending himself from? A teenager who was walking down the street with a pack of Skittles and some iced tea minding his own business? You can't run up on somebody, with a gun on your waist, and ask him where he's from and where he's going and act like he's the one who's a threat. That's called gangbanging. All Zimmerman had to do was take his racist ass home like the cops told him to and he could've spared himself 2.5 mil

    Why would I want Zimmermans autograph? I don't collect homeless people's autographs. He needs to file for bankruptcy if he owes his lawyers 2. 2 million. Wonder how his law study is going.

    I think he's one of his daddy's old-fashioned southern kind of democrat, which means he's really a republican. but then again, I really don't think he has a clue. Besides, I thought CPAC was for cons, not exclusively republican.

    No, I seriously think that Zimmerman, at this time in his life, would be anything anyone wanted him to be if it was advantageous to him, personally or financially.

    I expect him to become the leader for the Republican presidential candidate nomination at some point. Every other Republican seems to have a turn.

    The police take 2long to respond to many calls when seconds count .. when they do show up in most cases its 2late.. like when some punks tried to car jack my wife.. she was able to scare them off by honking the horn.. when the police showed up they said there is nothing they can do other than take a report. What happened to their wonderful probable cause they love to use on the rest of us..

    Ugh. Capitalizing on the death of another human being is pretty despicable thing to do, whether you were acquitted or not.

    There is no objectivity at all in any manner, shape, or form. David Mark, EIC, is refusing to believe that his opinion is just that, his opinion, he refuses to believe that there is any chance that the jury could be correct. He refuses to believe in the judicial system. He demonstrates in this piece that Zimmerman should be punished despite the verdict.

    How about an article aboutt the items that the defense was not allowed to present in this stacked case.
