the Zimmerman verdict was completely right 100 percent

The Zimmerman verdict was a disgrace. He started a fight with a 17 year old kid for obviously racist reasons, the kid tried to defend himself and Zimmerman shot him. He shouldn't have walked free. You know that if a black man had shot the kid he would have been on death row. this is a perfect example of how broken the American justice system is, you shoot a innocent kid and you walk free.

Well I guess I've won this round. Also the fact that did this suggests that you don't have any good arguments. Save me the trouble and forfeit the whole thing.

The "stand your ground" law was not brought up in the Zimmerman case, AngelManuel.

I would accept this debate if it had taken place in a state outside of Florida. Florida's law unfortunately allow individuals to use deadly force when threatened, this is known as "Stand Your Ground." States like the one I live in (New York), the person has a "Duty to Retreat." Still I wish good luck to whoever accepts this debate, for killing an unarmed child should never go unpunished.

agree with Mr parkers you really can only make assumptions.

I don't see how either side could win this. The only two people that really know what happened was Zimmerman and Martin, and Martin is dead. Unless Pro or Con happens to be Zimmerman, I don't think this resolution could have a fair result.

Hm, this is an interesting topic. What makes a verdict "100% right"? Unfortunately, I think that Pro isn't going to put up a good fight.
