You are not being objective when the only evidence you acknowledge is the little in Zimmermans favor. Lucky him, the burden was on the state.
I am not surprised so many would rather empathize with George than Trayvon. I believe whatever you have to say about what happened that night, would need to rely on the honesty of George Zimmerman. A quick google search proves he doesn't have any problem coaching his wife to lie under oath about their financial status in order to to escape his court fees. So no, I don't believe he'd have a problem lying to escape jail.
But the truth is this is speculation on my end as well. But I would hope the undeniable fact here is that we don't know who started this altercation, and just because the jury ruled one way, doesn't mean we as a public need to. I've signed the petition. Hopefully justice prevails in the end.
