Sports World Reacts to Zimmerman Verdict

As soon as the 'not guilty' verdict was read in the George Zimmerman case, Twitter exploded with comments from across the board, including the sports world.

Most of the reaction has been pro-Trayvon Martin and anti-George Zimmerman. Comments from current NFL MVP Adrian Peterson to NBA champion Dewayne Wade have been splashed across Twitter.

@DwyaneWade Wow!!! Stunned!!! Saddened as a father!!! Some1 make sense of this verdict for me right now please!!! Don't worry I'll wait...

F*cking Zimmerman got away with murder today wow what kind of world do we live in

Adrian Peterson @AdrianPeterson 
You don't go out looking for trouble!!! Neighborhood watch means WATCH & report!

Even Michael Vick's brother Marcus took to Twitter as well saying: "My people's did 2 years over some bullsh*t when this dude took a human life. Y'all MF's sick"

As you can tell, emotions as well as disappointment was high in the sports world Saturday night.
