A Florida jury has found George Zimmerman not guilty of murdering 17-year-old Trayvon Martin — controversially concluding the most high-profile race trial since OJ Simpson.
Twitter immediately exploded with the news, and the trending hashtags say it all:
#nojustice … #NotGuilty … #RipTrayvonMartin … and the ominous #IfIEverSeeZimmerman
Here are some of the most poignant, scary and notable tweets coming out in the wake of the historic verdict.
#IfIEverSeeZimmerman I'd have somebody stall him, have Trayvon's parents come, tell them bring a gun, and tell them to put a bullet in him

So you're all against Zimmerman being found not guilty for "murder", yet you're tweeting about murdering him? You. Are. Ignorant.

OJ WAS BLACK, KILLED A WHITE WOMAN, & WAS FOUND NOT GUILTY. YALL WILL NEVER PROSPER IF YOU KEEP THROWING RACE AROUND.

George Zimmerman was found not guilty by what has to be the dumbest jury in history.

How can we be shocked that white mothers found Zimmerman not guilty? White mothers used to bring their children to lynchings.

There's a difference between being found not guilty and being innocent. Zimmerman was acquitted of murder but he'll always be a killer.
