A Florida jury has found George Zimmerman not guilty of second-degree murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman plead not-guilty, and said he had acted in self-defense when he shot Martin on Feb. 26. 2012.

“I think that this is an atrocity,” Rev. Al Sharpton said on MSNBC shortly after the verdict was announced.  ”I think that it is probably one of the worst situations that I’ve seen. What this jury has done is establish a precedent, that if you are young and fit a certain profile, you can be committing no crime, just bringing some Skittles and iced tea home to your brother, and be killed, and someone can claim self-defense having been exposed with all kinds of lies, all kinds of inconsistencies.”

“This is a slap in the face to those that believe in justice in this country,” Sharpton added later.

Editor’s note: George Zimmerman has sued NBC Universal for defamation. The company strongly denies the allegation. [Full Quote]
