With the trial over, the fate of George Zimmerman is in the hands of the jury. Knowing what you know of the trial and being as unbiased as possible, what would you convict Zimmerman of, if anything? Please explain your reasoning.

Self defense negates any level of homocide guilty verdict.

If you watched the trial and follow the instructions of the judge and Florida law, there is just no way you can find him guilty of anything:

"If GZ was not engaged in unlawful activity and was attacked in any place where he had a right to be, he had no duty to retreat and had the right to stand his ground and meet force with force, including deadly force, if he resonably believed that it was nessisary to do so to prevent death or great bodily harm to himself or another, or to prevent the commission of a forcable felony. In considering the issue of self defense, you can take into account the reletive physical abilities and capabilities of both GZ and TM. In your consideration of the issue of self defense, you have a reasonable doubt on the question of whether GZ was justified in the use of deadly force, you must find GZ not guilty..."​
