    If he was respected...he isn't now. What a pitiful thing to say about the best (not perfect) the BEST legal system on the planet. But if you are ashamed...then by all means...leave & don't let the door hit you on your way out.

    Best legal system ? Hate to see the worst.Just from these comments it's obvious how impossible it'd be to get even two intelligent members on the same jury. Your 'juries' acquit the guilty and convict the innocent on a regular basis. U.S. needs to get out of the dark ages and come up with an updated system that is Justice for All.

    Then take your ass to saudi Arabia- suspected of stealing they remove your hand. Take your dissapointed ass to Afganstan where the put women in a soccer stadium and stone them to death. The problem is you put your faith in what the media told you. ZIMMERMAN GUILTY! They served him up on a single platter. Had him in a box with a bow on it and then reality set in. 6 American women who somehow thru the corruption & brainwashing of this country they weighed the evidence and made the right decision. You are stupid if you think we are going to sell our souls so you can have undeserved moment of ecstasy. Racism- you don't wear it well.

    So you are saying your jury system is only not as barbaric as other injustices in the world. That does not make it fair or great. Just not as bad.BTW, my conclusions were based on the facts and the evidence of a Murder.Actually, my brother told me about this tragedy, not the media.He was totally unbiased but when it became clear that this armed 'Hoodie' watchman stalked confronted and killed this kid, it was obvious who should be charged. The facts and the blatant disregard for rights and a life made my stance on the Murder, not the Media. I merely stated what's already a sad history. Juries are not an honorable tradition or a great American institution.They are a crapshoot at best.I know what ''goes on in other countries & it doesn't make six or twelve Americans'Noble,Fair or even the least bit Intelligent'.I believe my point is made valid by the scary fact that someone like you can likely serve on a 'jury'. P.S. I'm not the racist here.Just a Realist.

    I am ashamed to have watched your show. First of all what people, like you, are missing is the fact that he was not found not guilty/innocent of killing someone but he was found not guilty of the charges (2nd degree murder)!!! Also, I guess it was okay for Martin to call him a "cracker"!!!! You liberals are such a joke it is pathetic!!!

    I don't think these poor Dolts would ever consider any kind of treatment.I m quite sure there is no cure for a case of'Clueless Foul Ignoramus' anyway. Look at Ann Coulter.She's made millions off of this 'Illness'. The good people are with you, David.
