Here is something interesting that was discussed on CNN’s Headline News the night of Saturday, July 13, 2013 (Still trying to locate video scrubbed by Google and CNN):
There really WAS a guilty verdict… Trayvon Martin is GUILTY of Aggravated Assault… As self-defense IS justifiable homicide. I wonder IF Trayvon Martin would have been brought to JUSTICE for his actions that night.
So, let’s break this down:
There were actually two verdicts in the courtroom – 1 direct, and 1 implicitly implied.
#1 – George Zimmerman not guilty.#2 – Trayvon Martin guilty of aggravated assault & battery with intent to kill or maim.
When the jury found George Zimmerman not guilty of second degree murder and manslaughter, they simultaneously found Trayvon Martin guilty of aggravated assault.
