These rallies and people in the public eye speaking out against the verdict are so wrong to incite animosity among everyone.

Jimmy Carter: George Zimmerman jury ‘right’

http://www.politico.com/story/2013/07/jimmy-carter-george-zimmerman-verdict-94320.html

Quote
“I think the jury made the right decision based on the evidence presented, because the prosecution inadvertently set the standard so high that the jury had to be convinced that it was a deliberate act by Zimmerman that he was not at all defending himself, and so forth,” Carter told Atlanta news channel WXIA. “It’s not a moral question, it’s a legal question and the American law requires that the jury listens to the evidence presented.”

The jury has rendered a verdict and if people do not like it they should lobby to change the laws.
This has been great a great distraction to the IRS, Benghazi and NSA scandals. It knocked them right off the front page and now America can focus on a 'royal' baby...

Ever since I can remember I was told a story. Here is the short version;

A leader born in a foriegn land was asked about what should be done about a suspected criminal. Fearing political reprecussuions he passed it down to an underling. The underling trying to appear fair while secretely already fixing the outcome played the act of letting the unruly mob decide.
Many of the people began to see that a great mistake was made and the world was forever changed.

7/17/13   Angela Corey's Checkered past

Shortly after Dershowitz’s criticisms, Harvard Law School’s dean’s office received a phone call. When the dean refused to pick up, Angela Corey spent a half hour demanding of an office-of-communications employee that Dershowitz be fired. According to Dershowitz, Corey threatened to sue Harvard, to try to get him disbarred, and also to sue him for slander and libel. Corey also told the communications employee that she had assigned a state investigator — an employee of the State of Florida, that is — to investigate Dershowitz. “That’s an abuse of office right there,” Dershowitz says.

Exclusive: Juror pushes for new laws following Zimmerman trial
By Josh Levs. Dana Ford, and Holly Yan, CNN
updated 12:25 PM EDT, Wed July 17, 2013

(CNN) -- The woman known as Juror B37 in the George Zimmerman trial released a statement exclusively to CNN Wednesday pushing for new laws.

"My prayers are with all those who have the influence and power to modify the laws that left me with no verdict option other than 'not guilty' in order to remain within the instructions. No other family should be forced to endure what the Martin family has endured," she wrote.

The juror, who was interviewed by CNN, said she will not grant other interviews and wants to get back to a normal life. "For reasons of my own, I needed to speak alone," she said.

She issued the statement after four other jurors said the opinions she expressed on "Anderson Cooper 360" were "her own, and not in any way representative" of all the jurors.

In her CNN interview, which aired in two parts Monday and Tuesday nights on AC360, the juror said she believes Zimmerman didn't do anything unlawful and was "justified" in shooting 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

NRA blasts Holder for attacking 'stand-your-ground' laws after Zimmerman verdict
July 17, 2013

The National Rifle Association blasted Eric Holder for using the George Zimmerman case to attack "stand-your-ground" laws, accusing the attorney general of exploiting Trayvon Martin's shooting death for political gain.
 
Holder weighed in on the controversial self-defense laws for the first time on Tuesday during a speech to the annual NAACP convention, calling for a national review of the statutes
 

Holder has already confirmed that his Justice Department continues to investigate Zimmerman, in the wake of his acquittal, for possible federal civil rights crimes. But Chris W. Cox, executive director NRA's Institute for Legislative Action, claimed Holder went too far in extending the debate to "stand-your-ground" laws.

"The attorney general fails to understand that self-defense is not a concept, it's a fundamental human right," he said in a statement. "To send a message that legitimate self-defense is to blame is unconscionable, and demonstrates once again that this administration will exploit tragedies to push their political agenda."

The laws are in place in more than two dozen states, including Florida. They allow people to use deadly force if they think their life is being threatened. The role that law played in the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin is a matter of dispute -- Zimmerman's defense team technically did not use the law as the basis for their arguments.

But Holder, in his speech to the NAACP, suggested that the laws encourage gun owners to seek confrontation rather than avoid it.
 

He called for a "hard look" at the laws. The crowd applauded as he said "we must stand our ground."

The "stand-your-ground" laws have been a popular target ever since the Martin shooting, and the pressure has intensified after Zimmerman was acquitted on Saturday.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott, though, told Fox News that officials should not politicize the case.

"We shouldn't turn this into politics. This was a tragedy," he told Fox News on Monday.

Scott noted that he already put together a bipartisan commission to examine Florida's "stand-your-ground" law.

"Their recommendation is we not make any changes, that it is working the way it was intended," Scott said.

     Has the judge been interviewed or has she spoken up about the case?  Most everyone has....
 
I am pleased that the four jurors have spoken and let the world know that one juror is not speaking for them.  I think it is dangerous for that one juror who is
telling the world her version and her thoughts.  She may ultimately be sorry that she did that.

I used to listen to the news in the background much of the day.  The TV is on mute with the exception of our local news.  I am now choosing the written word....
newspapers, blogs, magazine articles, Scared Monkeys....!  I think the standards are higher than what I am hearing on TV.

Thanks to everyone here for the wonderful coverage.

http://jacksonville.com/news/crime/2013-07-16/story/fired-it-director-who-testified-george-zimmerman-trial-will-sue-state

Fired IT director who testified in George Zimmerman trial will sue State Attorney's Office, lawyer says
Posted: July 16, 2013 - 9:48pm  |  Updated: July 17, 2013 - 7:36am

Ben Kruidbos testified last month that prosecutors did not turn over all information to George Zimmerman’s defense team in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Last week, State Attorney Angela Corey fired Kruidbos. Now, his attorney says he plans on filing a lawsuit within 30 days.

“He has certainly received a major body blow by the conduct of the State Attorney’s Office,” said his attorney, Wesley White. “He knows he did the right thing.”

The same day prosecutors finished their closing arguments, one of Corey’s investigators went to Ben Kruidbos’ home about 7:30 a.m. to hand-deliver a letter that said Kruidbos “can never again be trusted to step foot in this office.”

On Tuesday, White said he will file a whistleblower lawsuit on Kruidbos’ behalf in Florida’s Fourth Judicial District Circuit against the State Attorney’s Office.

Cheryl Peek, the managing director of the State Attorney’s Office, wrote the six-page termination letter, which also said, ““Your egregious lack of regard for the sensitive nature of the information handled by this office is completely abhorrent. You have proven to be completely untrustworthy.”

Peek noted he was questioned in March when the office was trying to determine who had leaked personnel information obtained through a computer breach.

She also wrote that Kruidbos did a poor job overseeing the information technology department, violated public records law for retaining documents and was insubordinate.

A document dated May 16, however, says he received a pay raise for “meritorious performance.”

I haven't seen any videos/articles of the judge giving interviews or making any comments, yet.  I think that it will be a while before she does.
