Charles Barkley... the Voice of Reason on the Zimmerman Case?!?

Barkley: I agree with Martin verdict



Charles Barkley finally spoke publicly on the Trayvon Martin verdict, and his comments may shock many of his fans.

The George Zimmerman verdict ignited a firestorm around the country, including the sports world. Here are the most provocative athlete responses.

"I agreed with the verdict," Barkley said Thursday on CNBC's "Closing Bell with Maria Bartiromo".

"I feel sorry that young kid got killed. But they didn't have enough evidence to charge him (George Zimmerman)."

Added Barkley: "Something clearly went wrong that night. Clearly, something went wrong and I feel bad for anybody that loses a kid. But if you look at the case, and you don't make it ... there was some racial profiling, no question about it. Something happened to change the dynamic of that night. And that's probably not a popular opinion among most people but just looking at the evidence, I agreed with the verdict."

Barkley said what upset him was not the verdict, but the racist attitudes expressed by many people who commented on the case.

"It gives every white person and black person, who's racist, a platform to vent their ignorance," Barkley said. "That's the thing that bothered me the most. I watched this trial closely and I watched all these people on television, talking about it. A lot of these people have a hidden agenda ... The bias comes out."

According to the law Zimmerman should've been found not guilty, but that doesn't mean it's right and does not mean innocent.
