Caution: This is the same (plus “a little work” around, at least, the eyes) Wendy “I’ve never heard a false rape claim” Murphy who embarrassed herself and the legal profession on a weekly basis during the Duke Rape Hoax.
Perhaps she learned a BIG lesson from that episode. It would appear so, from this column, which probably couldn’t be more pro-Zimmerman if it was written by his mother.
The internet never forgets.
There is nothing new here, but, it does place everything on the table at one time. All the cards are here. It looks like the prosecutor should be in more trouble than Zimmerman.
Zimmerman has to walk, it’s the law.
The Internet really makes it harder to railroad someone than before.
THe concept of “stand your ground” is probably irrelevant here since there was “no ground” to “stand” re Zimmerman or Martin.
Zimmerman wasn’t protecting his “ground” (i.e. home, yard, car) and neither was Martin. He was patrolling it as the eyes and ears of his neighborhood. When he called the police, he was doing what he was supposed to do.
Martin was moving, so where is “the ground” he was protecting? None, and if he moved on Zimmerman, there was still no ground involved. If Martin had been at his mother’s house, then you would have had a different scenario.
This is a real red herring for lawyers to spout off on, like a bull with diarrhea, but in the end, it means nothing (except for the poor bull).
