Judge Hatchett: Prosecution did not meet the burden of proof for second-degree murder

Both the prosecution and the defense left it all in the court room today as they urged the jury to vote in their favor.

Mark O'Mara, attorney for George Zimmerman: "It's a tragedy truly, but you can't allow sympathy to feed into it."

Prosecutor John Guy: "Did he really need to shoot, did he have to shoot Trayvon Martin. No he didn't."

But who has the momentum as the jury deliberates the fate of George Zimmerman?

Outfront tonight: Cheney Mason is the former defense attorney for Casey Anthony and he joins me with Judge Glenda Hatchett.

    Media should be held accountable, if any damages come from their incitement of people because of your 24 hours a day coverage of our Justice system at work. The state didn't win and the state is trying to get someone else to do what they couldn't do, Win their case. Don't blame the jury because you didn't prosecute your case right. Oh, why are people not worried about all the people being killed in Chicago, oh I guess it's the same old thing every day. Where is Al S. on this problem?
