Zimmerman jury has question regarding manslaughter charge

Quote

SANFORD, Fla. After deliberating all day on Saturday jurors in the George Zimmerman murder trial asked for clarification on the instructions regarding manslaughter.

At about 6 p.m. ET lawyers for both sides appeared in court where Judge Debra Nelson said jurors had the manslaughter question. The lawyers approached the bench to talk to the judge.

It appears the verdict is coming soon and most likely will be guilty. It seems that way because the jury yesterday asked to see all the evidence and today they have asked about manslaughter specifically. That could mean they already decided not to aquit and are just deciding between manslaughter and second degree murder.

This thread was made to discuss the verdict. While it has not come in it will soon and the "Zimmerman trial" thread is already up to 50 pages and getting boggy.

What do you think the verdict will be? Once it is here what do you think about it?

If they're questioning exactly wh constitutes "manslaughter" that suggeststo me they're unsure whetheror not they've enough evidence to agree it was manslaughter.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

My guess is that they have ruled out murder 2 and now are deliberating manslaughter.  I cannot see them allowing him to walk.  George is headed to prison, the only question is for how long.  I hope that his conviction will satisfy the people who otherwise would riot over another verdict.  I wouldn't be much surprised if they didn't STILL trash Miami or Sanford even if they get a manslaughter conviction.  The way the law reads I don't think he's technically guilty of that either but I will admit that some penalty should be paid for his hubris and over zealousness.  TM already paid for his....  If GZ gets 30 years I hope they get it reversed on appeal.  The whole thing is going to set a precedent for racial and political prosecutions in this country and I really don't think we should go there.  There is enough tension as it is.

  We've cast the world, we've set the stage,
  for what could be, the darkest age...

Am I the only one alive who knows nothing about this Zimmerman trial?

If he walks it will give everyone who kills with no witnesses an out. Bad idea. Not sure why so many are on the side of a child killer. Sign of the times I guess.

I was a serving soldier at seventeen in Cyprus with the British Army.  If you had called me child, it wouldn't have ended well, to say the least.

I'm curious how many people who will riot if he walks were ecstatic when OJ got off.

Yes there will be riots if he does walk but I hope that the jury doesn't base their decision on that.

Sure, if you're willing to run face first into, and smack the back of your head against a brick wall. All the while making sure no one is peeking out their windows or doors.

It certainly is a sign of the times when children routinely rob, rough up, rape and kill innocent people.

nb. I already wrote that Zimmerman will be convicted of something, but at least it won't be child abuse since the judge decided that last minute grasping at straws was just too silly, even for her court.

George will wait a few years in prison then be acquitted at his appeal hearing. Providing he survives prison.

I wouldn't make much out of jury questions; usually it is just one juror and the others go along with it in the hope of getting somewhere.
