As usual, this is a tragic day for justice in America. Get ready for the gray bar hotel as your permanent residence, Zimmerman. A female judge and all female jury will fall prey to emotions, not the rule of law. "Justice" 2013.. NO MEN ALLOWED.. That would be MEAN!
I would love that if I were Zimmerman's lawyer. If the prosecution was dumb enough to put those baby pictures in, it would open the door to bring his teenage gangbanger pics in.
Not to mention that Zimmerman has baby pics too, and these could probably be introduced to show the absurdity of the prosecution's baby pic ploy.
Yeah, just like at the polls; should'a never given 'em the vote! < /sarc >
Bringing out pictures of George's attacker as a child would be a big mistake...it would open the door for the defense to go down the "Let's see how this baby grew up" road...something the judge so far has said she will NOT allow.
>rolling out his baby pictures
I believe that would open the door for pictures of the real thug to be displayed by the defense. Hopefully these jurors have seen the real travon.
Five of the six are married, which statistically means that they are more likely to be conservative. (Obama lost the married women's vote, but carried 2/3 of the single women's vote).
Also, at least two of the women are married to gun owners. One of them used to have a concealed carry permit but let it lapse. The prosecution tried to get the other stricken for cause but was unable to.
All in all a much better jury than I expected, since the jury pool was disproportionately black.
Just as 0 declared Treyvon could have been his son, the jurist could be like his typical white grandmother and have specific feelings when she encounters a black man;-)
What would stop the judge from allowing the baby Trayvon photos but disallowing the defense from digging into his criminality-prone past?
According to news reports, Nelson is married too, but she has a poster of John Lennon in her office (yikes)...
IMHO someone should research Nelson’s record on gender discrimination cases.
