A recent court ruling officially setting Trayvon Martin’s killer free has many in America enraged.
The jury, comprised of six women, deliberated for more than 16 hours before finding George Zimmerman not guilty Saturday night.
Ace Hood, a native of Florida, voiced his dissatisfaction with the outcome in a series of tweets:
“I’m speaking bout it cuz I’m from Florida ! Shits crazy!!
“Not about RACE..simply about justice my G!
“I just feel he should’ve gotten some type of time !! Cuz if it was trayvon he Would’ve !! Str8 up!!
“Aint no justice in this white mans world
“Hate this shit !
“Let me go out and kill somebody and say it was self defense ..the jury wouldn’t have took that long to give me life immediately !
“Wat do y’all think about the verdict??” he wrote.
Martin left his father’s fiancé’s home on a rainy Feb. 26 night to pick up snacks. Zimmerman, who was acting as neighborhood watch, pursued Martin after deeming the Miami-Dade teen suspicious.
Zimmerman shot 17-year-old Martin following a confrontation. Zimmerman alleged he was acting in self-defense.
If convicted of second-degree murder, Zimmerman could have been sentenced to a minimum of 25 years without parole and a maximum of life in prison.
A lesser charge of manslaughter could have given Zimmerman up to a 30-year prison sentence.
