Twitter Reacts to George Zimmerman Verdict by Crapping All Over Florida

George Zimmerman -- a guy who deliberately disobeyed the cops when they told him not to follow Trayvon Martin by doing the exact opposite of that, chased Trayvon, confronted Trayvon, and then shot and killed Trayvon, even though Trayvon was unarmed -- was found not guilty.

Naturally, emotions and opinions on both sides of the issue are high, particularly on Twitter.

But there seems to be a special kind of anger growing towards this wonderful state of ours, where the sun shine shines, the winters are warm, and where it's totally okay to shoot and kill a kid carrying a bag of Skittles and then go home.
