    I voted MANSLAUGHTER because that is what I THINK the verdict will be. However, it is not necessarily what I WANT the verdict to be.

    I feel he is not guilty of any crime, but jury will be hung.

    Not Guilty is my verdict. I believe GZ acted in self defense, and I believe his apparent injuries show proof of a physical altercation that preceded the shot from his firearm. I also believe that he was NOT attacked by a tree branch.

    While I believe that the verdict should be 'not guilty' I am concerned that the jury might come back with Manslaughter. JMO

    :twocents: I think the verdict will be either Manslaughter or Hung ...

    In My Opinion ... I think the jury should come back with a NOT GUILTY VERDICT ...

    But I don't think that is going to happen ...

    JMO ... but I just don't trust juries ...

    Not guilty. The prosecution didn't prove the case.

    I believe that the prosecutor did not prove the case against GZ so not guilty but I voted that I think it will be a hung jury. There are just too many (sadly) impacting variables (which do not belong but do nevertheless) that are going on that I fear the jury will not be able to agree.
    (IMO)

    Guilty Murder in the 2nd degree:
    Trayvon is dead.
    Caused by a criminal act. (Pointing and firing a firearm)
    The shooting was unlawful, was known to cause imminent Danger
    Demonstrated a depraved mind with disregard for human life.

    I voted manslaughter because that is what I think this case represents-I will not be surprised to see a NG verdict.

    I go back and forth between guilty of murder 2 and guilty of manslaughter. I think the jury will go with manslaughter. I do not think it should be legal to kill a man, or a boy, because he punched you in the nose. This is my opinion.

    Went with NG because I have faith the jury will remove emotion and look at the facts and evidence. I would not be surprised by a hung jury or manslaughter though. A 2nd degree murder conviction is akin to the NG verdict in the CA trial IMO.

    I voted not guilty. The state did not meet their burden. Though, I wouldn't be surprised if manslaughter is returned out of emotion. It's close to 50/50 in my mind what the jury will do.

    :twocents:

    Edited to add my prediction of verdict time. Saturday 3:17 pm.

    Manslaughter was my vote as I think it was proven. NG is what I am afraid will happen

    what is interesting is how evenly divided the votes are for manslaughter and ng.
