Packers players tweet about Zimmerman verdict


The jury in the George Zimmerman case came back with a not guilty verdict in the February 2012 shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida.

He had been charged with second-degree murder or manslaughter.

With the verdict, the Twitterverse erupted with tweets on both sides of the issue – including several Green Bay Packers players who expressed their opinions. Two of those players, Johnny Jolly and Myles White were the most vocal and you will see a string of their tweets below. However, be aware that there are some tweets that may be offensive – just sayin’ …

By publishing these tweets, I am not saying what happened is right or wrong or that the opinions expressed by the Packers players are right or wrong. I am simply providing the information for those of you Packers fans who may be interested in reading about how the players feel.

I’ll let the tweets speak for themselves and will start with the strings of Jolly’s and White’s …
