Local reaction to Zimmerman verdict

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - All we had to do was walk right down the street to find tons of people with similar reactions to what happened in that Florida courtroom today.

Nine On Your Side broke the news to Tom McGoldrick, who said he was shocked.

"I'm kinda surprised to tell you the truth. Had mixed feelings about the whole thing," McGoldrick said.

Cynthia Stowe said she wishes the verdict would have gone another way.

"I was disappointed that he walked free. He should have at least gotten manslaughter, or something."

Alexander Meyers said he was also surprised, and says he can relate to the ordeal.

"When I was younger, when I was a kid, you know, that would have been me out there. But I guess, you gotta kinda sit back and think, you know, you gotta kinda watch yourself."

Although those people may have been upset about that "not guilty" verdict, viewers on our Facebook page had mixed emotions.
