Enjoy the riots after he is found not guilty.

according to a law enforcement official close to the investigation.

Well OK then.

Hope he’s in Peru somewhere. This is a travesty. No way will he get a fair trial.

Well surprise surprise, succumbing to the pressure from the race baiters, if this were any ordinary case Zimmerman wouldn’t be charged with anything, heck, he’d be given a medal for protecting the community

It doesn’t matter what charge! Now Martin’s devoted parents can sue big time! It’s all about the money.

saying he has taken actions without consulting them.

Yea, the idiot talked to the prosecutors. Without having his lawyers present. The fool talked himself into jail.

"It was not immediately clear what charge Zimmerman will face."

How about defacing property by bleeding on the sidewalk after allowing his head to be slammed against it.

Well, looks like I'll be contributing to his defense fund. I hope he is outside the country in a non-extradtitable country. Sorry George Zimmerman, your country USED to have blind justice.

“Enjoy the riots after he is found not guilty”

Unfortunately, this thing will be dragged out for years before the riots. Better just to not charge him and get the riots over with. After hearing about Casey Anthony for years, I’m not ready for another 3 year circus.

I hope Zimmerman got a new lawyer who is working in silence and secret.

I also hope the SP takes him into custody first, before announcing the charges.

But mostly I hope this “leak” is a ruse to fake out and reduce the crowd size for when she announces “no charges”.

Zimmerman is guilty of being white, and having killed a black who attacked him. Collectivists are determined to not allow this to be a “good shoot” because they dread Americans being willing to defend their lives.

This Prosecutrix is a de facto collectivist.

Rediculous! How can she charge him knowing it will be hard to convict him with a jury! It was self defense. This is going to be a bigger mess then it already has been. Good grief!

There goes the neighborhood... watch! Forget about being involved in protecting your neighborhood, ain't worth it... every man for himself...

They will charge him with something like willful negligent homicide, simply by being a neighborhood watch-men with a gun... they will argue that if he had no gun, he would not have been embolden to "actively persue" Trayvon, even though Trayvon took the offensive and assaulted Zimmerman. They will likely get a conviction too... ain't no jury going to acquit, not against the threat of riots in the streets.

Now the Martins can sue the HOA and the city of Sanford based on Florida law. It’s about the money! Believe me! Doesn’t require a conviction, merely an arrest.

Good; only; inasmuch as the speed our wheels of 'Justice' move (Col. Hassan has gone to trial, right?) and at which time; case could be dropped etc. . .

This will/should, perhaps, keep, Zimmerman off the front page until well after Election. Could help put that 'race war' on hold. (OTOH)

Do think his lawyers and family must know he is safe; otherwise; they would be fearing - per his 'disappearance'- for his life.

It is my understanding that without a grand jury there can be no capital murder charge.

What do you think would happen if he was “taken in” by the SP? Do you really think he would survive in jail??? I hope he’s left the country.

“In what I believe is a race war, the other side won this battle.”

A race war no doubt.

Here we have Obama and Holder dictating a Florida prosecutor to indict Capt. Zimmerman based entirely on racist hatred.

If he goes to trial, Capt. Zimmerman will be found not guilty as juries tend not to convict law enforcement heroes for actions taken while on duty.

From what I’ve read, he can’t be charged with First Degree Murder or face the death penalty without a Grand Jury. So, this will not satisfy Trayvon’s supporters.

We don’t need jury nullification in this case, just a fair and impartial jury that listens to the facts and properly applies the law.
