SANFORD A judge has denied George Zimmerman's request to delay his trial in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

O'Mara ... wanted Zimmerman's trial delayed. O'Mara had argued in a lengthy motion that there's much work left to be done, and many depositions to conduct. The defense, he said, has had to fight the state for key evidence, and can't possibly be ready by June.

No problem except that it is now clear that the judge is in on the kangaroo court.

The interesting fight will be over jury selection and each side’s for cause challenges.

Oh please, it’s been a long time since the shooting and the trial is not until June. I think the defense can take a couple of depositions by then. Hardly a kangaroo court because of this.

When is the last time you tried to get evidence from a prosecutor that was playing games?

or tried to get the prosecutor to show up for a deposition? (the prosecutor must be present for the deposition to have any value at court)

would you be as cavalier if it was your freedom on the line?

That there is even going to be a trial proves this is a kangaroo court.

This trial is starting to look like the famous Scopes Monkey Trial.

Hell, they might even dig up old Clarence Darrow and William Jennings Bryan to add an even more festive circus atmosphere to this debacle. I saw the innocent cuddly babes parents out on the street singing happy birthday out in front of the court house.

What a sham trial this is going to be!

The whole process has been a joke. Zimmerman would not even be on trial if the politicians were not afraid of having to react to rioting negros. The persecution has leaked witness names and photos of Saint Trayvons body, has been caught several times witholding crucial evidence and has even tried to intimidate Z into a plea deal by threatening to charge his wife with perjury. Now the persecution is stonewalling in an attempt to prevent Z from iluminating more of its misconduct. Any judge with a lick of professionalism or integrity would have the prosecution on a very short leash at this point.

Clarence Darrow successfully defended a famous “stand your ground” case in Detroit in the 1926.

The whole damned mess is an attempted political lynching. It should never have reached the court level at all.
