cheese husk rice, so the race baiters win.
This could actually be the best way for the whole case to unfold from Zimmerman's perspective. The prosecutor shuts up "the community" by filing a murder charge, yet knows full well that it's nearly impossible to get a conviction and Zimmerman will ultimately walk.
If I were Zimmerman, I would have been far more fearful of a manslaughter or criminally negligent homicide charge ... because it would have been much easier to get a conviction on one of those.
Martin got on the phone and was talking to girlfriend after he ran for a few minutes.
And anyone who believes this will turn into a conviction, well...I would be prepared to be very dissapointed...
But if the jury is stacked “selected” in a very questionable voi dire process, you can bet the trial will be over before it really begins...
But even then, if he is aquitted...This will make the Rodney King circus look like a picnic...It’ll be a nation-wide riot...
I guess I will not be surprised either way...
The press conference is going on and this woman is sooo proud of her self. She is reveling in the event. Very sick!
Next step is to have Holder move the trial to DC.
She’s on live now, saying wonderful glowing things about Treyvon’s parents and how loving and great they are. Thanking a dozen more people.
Did not come to decision lightly.
Made decision not on public pressure...(yeah right)
She sounds giddy. Disgusting
Hey Angela, KEEP YOUR EMOTIONS OUT OF IT, B*TCH. What kind of introduction was THAT?
Postponing the riots, in other words. Intimidating the jurors as well.
Zimmerman is so screwed.
I think a jury will clear him! The prosecutor is doing it for Trayvon! Not for justice!
Corey just gushed over the parents of Trayvon. Those sweet parents. Yeah, the sweet ones who trademarked their sons name and who hired personal injury attorneys to prepare for civil suits. VOMIT.
People are routinely arrested before all the facts are known, based on probable cause. Then you have an arraignment, bail hearing, omnibus motions, discovery...
He’ll probably plead not guilty and raise the defense of self-defense at the arraignment, get no bail because he’s a flight risk, and move to have the venue changed due to excessive publicity and passions, as well as move to dismiss the complaint after discovery is completed. In discovery, both sides exchange evidence that they intend to use so nobody’s taken by surprise.
Of course, that’s what a lawyer would do for him prior to trial. Are his “lawyers” representing him again? Does he have new ones?
Prosecuting attorney started off by referring Martin’s parents as “these sweet parents”.
Disgusting...”Public pressure had nothing to do with this”
UNBELIEVABLE called him “our” victim.
ABSOLUTE LYNCH MOB.
There is a video from a Tampa TV station speaking with an eyewitness! Saying Trayvon was on top of Zimmerman. Gotta find it!
Can Zimmerman get a fair trial? I wouldn't bet my life on it. FL found Casey Anthony not guilty but Zimmerman will probably be sent down. He has two strikes against him: male and white latino.
“Dear Sweat Travon parents, justice for Travon...”
