George Zimmerman Found Not Guilty and Goes Free


"Trayvon Martin was profiled. There is no doubt that he was profiled as a criminal," Corey said.

She also defended the state's gun laws but said there was a need for responsible use of those weapons.

"We believe this case was all about boundaries and George Zimmerman exceeded those boundaries." Corey said.

She said the prosecutors respect the jury's verdict, but also said, "We are used to the imperfections of witnesses and evidence."

The case of Trayvon Martin's death may not be over. The NAACP said it was "outraged" by the verdict and called on the U.S. Department of Justice to prosecute Zimmerman for violating Martin's civil rights. The DOJ has conducted its own investigation into the shooting.

A department spokeswoman said tonight, "The department continues to evaluate the evidence generated during the federal investigation, as well as the evidence and testimony from the state trial."
