Despite an outcry from civil rights groups, a call for close examination by President Barack Obama and even a 1960s-style sit-in at the Florida governor's office, the jury's verdict that George Zimmerman was justified in shooting unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin is unlikely to spur change to any of the nation's stand-your-ground self-defense laws.
A lawfully impaneled jury found George Zimmerman not guilty of second-degree murder and manslaughter in the death of Trayvon Martin. The State of Florida failed to prove Zimmerman committed any crime. The government used the full force of its powers to investigate and prosecute Zimmerman and didn’t prove its case to the jury.

This is primarily thanks to the smart screenplay by writer/director Nicholas Jarecki and a charismatic leading performance from Richard Gere.
