What do you think? What is your reaction to the Zimmerman verdict?

By From page A13 | July 21, 2013

David Reifer

retired, Davis:

“There’s way too much hostility out there.”

Ashley Mac

counselor, Sacramento:

“I’m starting to lose trust in the judicial system, just because the kid was unarmed and (Zimmerman) made the choice to follow him. And there are a lot of kids of color who are getting gunned down in self-defense, even though they’re unarmed, and there’s no justice for it. And it’s just sad.”

Sonny Kniep

student, Davis:

“Someone threw rice at Kim Kardashian and got arrested on the spot. But killing someone is a crime, and they should not get off.”

Desmond Jolly

retired professor, Davis:

“I think it’s payback for the O.J. Simpson verdict. He was freed. Zimmerman is free.”

Edward Secades

technologist, Jersey City, N.J.:

“It was justice. It was due process.”

Diana Alvarez

unemployed, Davis:

“I’m not surprised at all. I think the judicial system is corrupt.”
