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.
Casey Anthony - NOT GUILTY
George Zimmerman - NOT GUILTY
Troy Davis - EXECUTED
Clearly If You Wana Kill Somebody ? GO TO FLORIDA!

Arizona: "At least we're not Texas."
Texas: "At least we're not Florida."
Florida: "You can't prove we're Florida."

Still processing the fact that online gambling grandmas are more of an issue in Florida law than lethal vigilante turds

In Florida, a black woman gets twenty years for firing warning shots. Zimmerman walks free for shooting and killing a young black man.

Welcome to Florida. Feel free to shoot anything that isn't a Manatee.

Botched the 2000 presidential election, Casey Anthony and now this. Log off, Florida.

Apparently in Florida it is legal to pick a fight with a law-abiding stranger and shoot him if you're losing.

FLORIDA is a dangerous place for liberty it seems. Presidential votes and skittle purchases both suspiciously dealt with ??

Casey Anthony and George Zimmerman get away with murder in Florida, But I go down there and will probably get a year for 1 gram of pot.

With Colorado legalizing weed it was surely just a matter of time before Florida legalized murder. #SlipperySlope

I was once followed in a Florida shopping mall by an employee that thought I was going to steal. If only she knew she could have shot me.
