Thank you Jesus this murderer is finally sitting behind bars for killing Trayvon Martin.

CNN) -- George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who says he was acting in self-defense when he fatally shot an unarmed teenager in Sanford, Florida, has been charged with second-degree murder, special prosecutor Angela Corey announced Wednesday.

Zimmerman was arrested on a warrant and was in the custody of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, his new attorney, Mark O'Mara, told CNN legal analyst Mark NeJame.

What happens next

The charges were announced in Jacksonville by Corey, who has said her job was "to find out the full truth" about the February 26 incident in Sanford.

What do you think about the decision to charge Zimmerman?

For weeks, Trayvon Martin's parents have demanded an arrest in their 17-year-old son's shooting death. His mother, Sybrina Fulton, said earlier Wednesday, "I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that justice will be served."

Zimmerman's claim of self-defense failed to quell an uproar about the decision by Sanford police not to initially charge him and about Florida's "stand your ground" law, which allows the use of deadly force by anyone who feels a reasonable threat of death or serious injury.

    It's way past time this murderer was charged. My thoughts and prayers are with Trayvon's family.

    It's good to know that our voices still count. If it weren't for the pressure that was put on them, that SOB would have gone free!

    I was part of the crowd conversing among the black community who were incensed that nothing was happening to bring justice to this boy or his family. When ABC News finally broke the story I was so happy to see people of conscience rise up to seek justice also. We've got a lot to be thankful for thus far. It's wonderful to know that OUR voices can still be heard.

    So when are you going to protest for Daniel Adkins?

    A mentally disabled unarmed "White Hispanic" shot by a Black man who claimed self defense and was not arrested.

    Why no media uproar for this case? The only network I've even seen report it was Fox News.

    It's about damn time! This should have happened sooner but I hope Trayvon's family will get the justice and closure they deserve.
  • Ryan Ferηαηd... 2012/04/12 03:19:51
    When should it have happened?

    They just finished the main investigation.

    The Prosecutors waited until they had enough evidence to believe they could win to charge him.

    Is that a bad thing?
  • #Justic... Ryan 2012/04/12 14:55:16
    #Justice4Trayvon 629 BLOCKT CONS
    The main investigation? The Florida "State's Attorney" decided not to charge Zimmerman after one of the detectives on the case recommended he be charged.

    It took people power & the power of the press (after they decided to make it national news) that got a Special Prosecutor assigned to the case. Zimmerman was basically given carte blance to kill again after his initial release.
  • Ryan #Justic... 2012/04/12 16:42:21
    He never decide not to charge Zimmerman.

    He said there wasn't enough evidence yet. He told the police to work the investigation and then bring him the results of all the evidence.

    This is hardly surprising, it's the exact same thing the Special Prosecutor did when she took over the case.

    Maybe you missed the part in the press conference where the Prosecutor praised the police and original prosecutor for the I believe her words were enormous amount of work they did before she got involved.

    I'm glad that he will finally get a fair trial in the courts and not the press.

    I've been listening to your IGNORANT statements since I first brought this case to light on SH. NOT ONCE have you said anything decent about Trayvon but have bent over backwards to make Zimmerman look like he's some wonderful guy when the world knows he is NOT.
