Poll: What is your prediction to what the verdict will be? [View all]

Zimmerman's Defense will begin delivering their closing argument Friday morning.

After the judge reads the instructions to the jury they will go into deliberations.
When the jury reaches a verdict the judge will allow it to be announced on the same day even if it is on the weekend.

I believe he is guilty, but they need 6 non-Fox, non-racist, and non-Limbaugh jurors... Demo_Chris Jul 2013 #12
It should be 1st Degree. It was clearly pre-meditated. He just wanted to kill a "negro". sbh Jul 2013 #14
