    Can we maybe get a GZ thread on a different board by any chance?

    I agree, but many won't.

    They equate not guilty = innocent.

    Which is not the way the law works.

    The standard is did the prosecution prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt.

    The jury may well feel that GZ was guilty but the state did not prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt so according to the law they were bound to find him not guilty.

    Or they may well feel that GZ was totally innocent. Unless they speak, we'll never know just exactly what they meant by "not guilty."
    Be kind, for everyone is fighting a great battle.

    I am not a GZ supporter. I am supporter of the law for all people. A fair trial and constitutional rights for anyone charged with a crime.
    That is the law you are supporting- you want to apply it selectively now?

    I am very happy my state has saner statues.

    He'll have it even worse than Casey Anthony, especially when race is being brought into this equation.

    No damn sad is that? TM had no right to attack GZ. GZ shot in self defense....he was found NOT GUILTY...nuff said.
