I do not know anybody that was involved in the trial and I usually don't follow trials at all, but I found this one interesting because I am a mother with four children, one of them being a boy. I have six nephews and many friends with children as well.

Will you volunteer your time to raise awareness over what you feel is an injustice in relation to the outcome of this trial? 

At the end of the day, I feel like George Zimmerman profiled Trayvon Martin (I don't think he racially profiled him because it was dark, how could he know he was black until he actually got up on him?), decided to confront him because he was tired of the recent break-ins in the neighborhood, and simply but of more than he could chew and got his ass kicked by a 17 year old kid. Do I think he had intentions on killing Trayvon? No, I don't. I think he was just fed up and tired of nothing being done about the recent crime in the area and things just got out of hand and someone died because Zimmerman took the law into his own hands. He will forever have to live with the fact that he killed a child that was armed with Shuttles and tea. And he will also live in fear; constantly looking over his shoulder hoping no-one decides to take his life because they felt that justice was not served. I pray for both families and everyone involved.

  Have you followed the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman Case? If so, are you surprised by the verdict? 

I'm not terribly surprised because honestly the prosecution tried for the murder charge they couldn't get and did a terrible job of proving it.

  Did you know Trayvon Martin or do you know George Zimmerman personally? Do you have any ties to the case? If not, do you follow other trials for example: the James Holmes or Jodi Arias trials? Why was this particular trail something you found interesting?

They should have just tried for manslaughter, and gotten it. I did not know either personally. I followed this trial more because it was more available. I'd be interested to read about the James Holmes trial as well, but I haven't seen much in the MSM.

Will you volunteer your time to raise awareness over what you feel is an injustice in relation to the outcome of this trial?

I will be writing articles on Yahoo! Voices about injustices in the system, but probably not doing more than that.
