It is hard to take sides for me in this case, I wasn't there, but I can see why a not guilty verdict may/could be reached. If the roles were reversed and Martin the shooter was found not guilty would white Americans hit the streets burning down the town? Probably not, I'm just saying.
there is nothing to convict on but 2nd degree murder. That's all he was charged with. they cant convict on lesser charges unless he was charged with them. After he is found not guilty the state can rearrest him on manslaughter but I don't see that happening
