It’s outrageous. It’s weird because the jury interpreted the law correctly. It’s unfortunate.
I don’t think it was right for Zimmerman to get away clean. If it had been a white man killed, they would have given him time.
Have I slipped through a wormhole into 1952? What’s going on? Since when can a man who is not a police officer have the right to detain anyone, let alone shoot and kill a child?
It’s another example of how society deals with black youths’ lives. Black lives can’t be devalued. We have to have a consistent response to all the killings of our youths.
I was really disappointed. I was expecting that justice would be served. It wasn’t.

I think the jury had issues with race. They didn’t serve justice. [Trayvon] was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
