Okay wait. I'm seeing tweets that George Zimmerman got charged with 2nd Degree murder, and then I'm seeing tweets that say ignore them.

Ignoring them would be wise. Zimmerman was indeed charged with second-degree murder, but he has not been convicted. He will not even be going to trial until June 2013.

Posts of false verdict. George Zimmerman was charged with 2nd degree murder, but he hasn't been found guilty. Trail starts June 10, 2013.
