Zimmerman V. Florida


Recommended Posts

i have to say this trial is going back and forth right now.

i thought for sure he was getting the chair. I think it might be a mistrial right now.

The state doesn't have a case at all he will be acquitted. There whole argument for the states current line of questioning seems to be an effort to make the case that if GZ's injuries were not life threatening he could not have been in fear for his life. Sooo.... because he knows the law, he's guilty of something he otherwise wouldn't be guilty of if he wasn't aware of the specifics of the law? The State is arguing that understanding your right to self defense and an interest in law enforcement is evidence of murder.

That is a real strong case :blink:

When he is acquitted he needs to strike first in the civil case and take the state and TM's family to court for defamation of character, pain and suffering and of course a 9mm bullet.

Usually not a big court TV fan but this shit is funny. My fav is reading comments on CNN/Fox/MSNBC. Everyone is screaming they should just charge him with manslaughter and let it go. Manslaughter would probably carry a longer or same jail sentence then murder 2 in FL. I think its funny how even the state basically agrees that it was Trayvon on top and he probably started it. Their new theory is that he could not finish it. Good for morning LULZ.

Mistrial on what basis? You think the Prosecution is deliberately screwing this up? Because they're definitely playing the "let's throw everything and then some at the wall and see if anything sticks" strategy and it's going over like a wet fart in a crowded elevator.

Jury split IMO

That would be extremely sad if true...

The best hope is this is deliberated for about 4-5min and he is found not guilty..

In BLDR's closing yesterday, in which he was attempting to convince the jury that the state had proven guilt beyond reasonable doubt, he said this.

“We don’t know what happened” “No one can be sure”.

Just in case the lack of evidence wasn't enough for the jurors, this should do it.

It's amazing to me how often the State prosecutors in highly public cases like this are so completely incompetent. I know some brilliant state and district attorneys - but this guy in Florida, de la Rionda - stupidity does not begin to define him. Either he's deliberately undermining the case or he's a prime example of the Peter principle.

"This afternoon I heard what was perhaps the most disjointed, fact-free, histrionic, and ineffective closing argument that Ive heard delivered by a State prosecutor in a murder case in more than two decades of practicing law."

The State's got nothing...

Of course a New Yorker would say that this case is all about profiling and that there's no question profiling is wrong on so many levels.

Hmmmm, I wonder what Jesse Jackson would think of that sentiment?

‘There is nothing more painful to me at this stage of my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery, then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.”
