George Zimmerman was acquitted of second degree murder and manslaughter on Saturday afternoon, ending one of the most controversial trials in recent memory.
The jury deliberated for sixteen hours before reaching a verdict at 9:50 on Saturday evening.
The saga of race, guns, and media started sixteen months ago when Zimmerman shot seventeen-year-old Trayvon Martin. Thanks to the application of Florida’s Stand Your Ground law, Zimmerman was not arrested, prompting weeks of protests that eventually led to the state of Florida’s appointment of a special prosecutor, who ordered Zimmerman’s arrest.
