    You dont understand a person who stands trial and is found not guilty is not "proven" innocent. Z's trial did not prove him innocnet, there simply was not enough evidence to find him guilty. This is a very simple concept. Do you believe Z was proven innocent?

    Still not grasping presumption of innocence I see. Like the famous movie line goes..."some people you just can't reach..."

    Do you think Zimmerman was proven innocent?

    No one who understands even slightly how the legal system in the US works would think that.

    At the same time, when you present the argument in that way, it halfway sounds like you're trying to say "he's guilty, but they could't prove it".

    Rather, you could say "Zimmerman is still considered innocent", or something...

    The only reason I belabored the point is the Zbots often say he was proven innocent. He wasn't.

    Just wondering, if you can locate one post where a "ZBot" says he was found innocent by a court?

    Which many of us know. Your word choices, however, are implying another statement.

    No, I presumed him innocent. He was proven not guilty, so my presumption stands.
