    My personal opinion is that GZ is guilty of 2nd degree murder, but my guess is that the jury will vote for manslaughter. I think any hope of claiming self-defense or trying to assert that he was in fear went out the window when he got out of his truck.

    Most likely either Hung Jury or Not Guilty.

    the poll clearly asked what you think the verdict will be, not what you hope it will be. hence the low count for murder 2, IMHO most are answering what they think the outcome will be, as asked.

    Hung Jury. Just as websleuths members are divided, so will the jury be divided.

    I respect the opinions of every poster here at WS, and the reasoned rationale behind every 'vote' on this poll.

    We are a working example of differing - hell, dissenting - views, all mangled up in one forum...where we politely discuss - heatedly, at times - our viewpoints with each other.

    Ohhhhh and back on topic: I would suggest that he will be found not guilty, in my opinion.

    I picked manslaughter but I believe it should be murder.

    I think it will be "NG"...not because GZ is innocent, because he certainly isn't, but because the burden of proof was on the State and they just didn't bring it. I pray that what I fear will happen with a NG verdict won't take even more lives. I hope that made sense.

    When this made the news I believed Zimmerman to be guilty and I signed the Trayvon Martin petition about charging Zimmerman. After watching the trial, however, I vote not guilty. Very sad for Martin's parents--but not guilty.

    I voted manslaughter, particularly after reading jury instructions.

    I really hope it won't be a hung jury. Those of you who are mentioning the depth of division among websleuths members (I've seen similar division of opinion on facebook) being reflected in the jury could be right. I was assuming not guilty, but sadly a hung jury is a distinct possibility.

    I'm not voting because I honest to goodness have no idea what decision the jury is going to come back with.

    manslaughter - both what I believe to be true and what I believe the jury will most likely return.

    I think it's hung.


    This post is my opinion only, and is subject to making me look totally confused
