Both during the trial and after the verdict was delivered, the reaction of those hoping for a guilty verdict was universal: The facts of the case were ignored.
The only relevant detail being considered seems to be that a grown man shot and killed an unarmed teenager. None of the witness testimony matters, which all supported Zimmerman’s version of events — even the prosecution’s witnesses. None of the physical evidence matters, which all supported Zimmerman’s version of events — even the prosecution’s evidence submissions.
If you were hoping for a guilty verdict, why is only relevant detail the fact that Martin was killed by Zimmerman?
