Last week, media outlets filed motions to unseal the records concerning the arrest of George Zimmerman in connection with the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Sooner than later, the public will see what evidence special prosecutor Angela Corey has that warranted the filing of second-degree murder charges.
Absent something new in Corey's file, one of America's best-known lawyers feels the case against Zimmerman is doomed. Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz believes that the murder charges will be thrown out.
In a recent interview with me, Dershowitz acknowledged the low evidentiary bar necessary at this juncture but still opined that Corey has not met it.
"Most affidavits of probable cause are very thin," Dershowitz said. "This is so thin that it won't make it past the judge on a second-degree murder charge. There is simply nothing in there that would justify second-degree murder. The elements of the crime aren't established ...

Brace for black mob riots “for trayvon”. Start carrying for protection. Also if you can be in a group it helps. They usually like to go after a solo victim.
He also said Corey could legally be charged for criminal prosecution.
A man was elected president solely because he was black. Why is it so hard to believe a white hispainic could be charged with murder solely because the deceased was black?
Tonight news...all the news that fits the time slot...
Sure, it would get thrown out in a country that believes in the rule of law but NOT in a country that has sold it’s soul to political correctness and is dominated by idiotic, guilt ridden liberals.
So anything goes and I’d sure hate to be Mr. Zimmerman right now.
Cowards always do.
Zimmerman man? sounds like a super hero or something.
reminds me of this in more ways than one.
New TVs and video game machines for all of "Holders people", and if they don't like the performance of the models they get, just wait until after the elections and they will be able to riot for new ones.
As far as criminality is concerned, the case makes no sense at all.
But more cynical, more political, and the reasons for the charges are ABUNDANTLY logical —it’s all about Obama 2012 cuz the Muslim Bisexual machine-gun smuggler can run on NOTHING from his record.
They WANT this to be thrown out of court so that they can later scream that the reasons are all racial.
The objective is to energize blacks and reGuiltify stupid non-blacks in an increasingly IFFY SWING STATE.
They remember the squeeker that Al fatso failed in in Florida and they’re aiming to prevent a recurrence.
man, be doomed!
The carnage is just acceptable collateral damage.
Whoot Zimmerman Man! Finally a real super hero :P
Also reported today on FNC is that George Zimmerman is out of state and that he is relying on donated private protection services. He has no official police protection.
