Skip to comments.Case against George Zimmerman man be doomed
Posted on 04/24/2012 6:45:55 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
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 ...

Looks like the Star-Tribune used ebonics when writing headlines.
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.
Da Kase Aginst Trayvon May Bee Doo med
“While you’re out Killing Whitey, stop by a voting booth!”
Be prepared. The Vandals and Visigoths are at the gates and will be storming them, once Zimmerman is found Not Guilty.
Already tried by the media in the court of public opinion. Trial is over. Just going through the motions. Zimmerman is toast.
Write it on a rock.
Never thought I’d see the day where I could say Amen to Derchewitz. I hope they throw Corey in jail, the mini Hitler prosecutor, and sue Trayvoooon’s mama and baby daddy for blood libel. And since Mama Trayvon trademarked everything Travyon every penny she gets should go to Zimmerman for her ruining his life. Wow, if there is a God that women will receive NO mercy. She raised a gang banger drug dealing thug, and has created the most racially tense atmosphere in the US since the 1960s. She should be charged with inciting violence. I blame every black on white crime in the name of Trayvon on his welfare trash mother.
“When Sanford police initially investigated the case, they referred to it as a potential case of “manslaughter,” but then declined to prosecute, at which point Gov. Rick Scott appointed Corey to nvestigate.”
What was he thinkin.....
He also said Corey could legally be charged for criminal prosecution.
Now that’s a cheering thought!
Rick Scott is disgusting.
I don't disbelieve you for a second. However I am sure that the chickensh_t Repub governor could assign FL state troopers to protect Zimmerman, but then he appointed Corey in the first place, rather than using the FL AG. Another example of a whimpering, pc, coward GOPer.
He has no official protection?
What the fiends are doing to that man and his family is so horrible there are no words I can find to express myself.
Maybe Scott set Corey up the bomb.
State of Florida better have their liability insurance premium paid.
A woman called the Mike Berry show a few weeks back and said “Sheila Jackson-Lee has a bad case of ebonic plague.”
Riots were going to happen, Trayvon or no Trayvon. The Black racists are stoked up, attacking whites in race mobs in the cities since last summer. Obama and his radicals are playing the “Arab Spring” protest riot card.
He’ll do something to set them off if the Trayvon thing does not blow up. I read “Republicans” were trying to cut free food programs. That would give them the excuse to launch riots.
WE HAVENT HAD A GOOD AYBABTU THREAD IN TOO LONG!!!
You mean Scott might have had a motive that wasn’t bad? Sorry I’m thick..
I would not count on Zimmerman being found not guiltyt. He will be tried before a kangeroo court and bought jury. It is all political since the lynch mob was reved up.
Home made wine?
Just tryin to keep from cryin. D... I don’t want Romany, but CERTAINLY don’t want Obummer. Silliness helps.
When the Left flips out and reports some Whitey has Gone Goetz on a pack of feral yoots we know who dun it! LOL!
I’m fervently hoping for a revolution at the convention.
I really don’t think I can vote for Romney. I really, really hate vomiting bile.
And what judge is going to have the stones to dismiss the charge? What is Alan smoking?
The fix is in - - Zimmerman is toast.
Sheesh... I cannot believe some people want to pretend that the "justice system" suddenly isn't a pathetic joke anymore.
If Zimmerman goes to trial my bet the jury vote will be on racial lines. Any Blacks on the jury will vote to convict him no matter what the evidence or lack of evidence. Kind a reverse of the OJ Simpson trial where Black jurors all voted to acquit. In reaction to an acquittal there will be riots in major cities, similar to the riots with Rodney King whipped up by the Black Panthers and other radical groups with certainly the tacit support of the White House.
No case at all as far based on what we have seen in the public. Just as should have been done from the start of this case, we should still wait to see if the prosecutor has any evidence that we have not seen before completely making up our minds. Still when someone is being railroaded it is tough.
Perhaps this one...
“Rick Scott is disgusting.”
Based on what?
How do you feel about Scott Walker, another 1st term R Gov?
The entire exercise is to placate the mob.
Obama is actually a white black man.
