Zimmerman is so screwed.
I think a jury will clear him! The prosecutor is doing it for Trayvon! Not for justice!
Corey just gushed over the parents of Trayvon. Those sweet parents. Yeah, the sweet ones who trademarked their sons name and who hired personal injury attorneys to prepare for civil suits. VOMIT.
People are routinely arrested before all the facts are known, based on probable cause. Then you have an arraignment, bail hearing, omnibus motions, discovery...
He’ll probably plead not guilty and raise the defense of self-defense at the arraignment, get no bail because he’s a flight risk, and move to have the venue changed due to excessive publicity and passions, as well as move to dismiss the complaint after discovery is completed. In discovery, both sides exchange evidence that they intend to use so nobody’s taken by surprise.
Of course, that’s what a lawyer would do for him prior to trial. Are his “lawyers” representing him again? Does he have new ones?
Prosecuting attorney started off by referring Martin’s parents as “these sweet parents”.
Disgusting...”Public pressure had nothing to do with this”
UNBELIEVABLE called him “our” victim.
ABSOLUTE LYNCH MOB.
There is a video from a Tampa TV station speaking with an eyewitness! Saying Trayvon was on top of Zimmerman. Gotta find it!
Can Zimmerman get a fair trial? I wouldn't bet my life on it. FL found Casey Anthony not guilty but Zimmerman will probably be sent down. He has two strikes against him: male and white latino.
“Dear Sweat Travon parents, justice for Travon...”
We are officially a banana Republic.
She gleefully called Trayvon’s family. I say again, this is sick.
Disgusting, surreal, and this woman is insane!!
After the shout out to the sweet parents, she could barely wipe that smirk off her face.
What a vile pandering bitch. Not shocked. Anyone still wanna talk about how she’ll do what the evidence says with all this romantic talk of “our victim”.
Is she for real?
The taxpeasants should understand that they are all George Zimmerman.
‘Zimmerman has reportedly hired Mark OMara, a well-known Orlando attorney for his defense, according to multiple media reports.’
She can’t keep a straight face to save her life. Seriously, she is one step from laughing out loud.
If Zimmerman was acting in any kind of official capacity for the HOA when he was patrolling the neighborhood, there's a good chance that the HOA bylaws (or Florida law) indemnify him in the event of legal trouble. So if/when he's acquitted of the charge(s), he may be able to sue the HOA to recover the cost of his legal defense.
How ironic is it that Trayvon Martin's father -- who lived in that neighborhood -- may ultimately end up helping pay Zimmerman's legal bills?
She’s walking proof that the emotions women bring to their jobs AND WEAR ON THEIR SLEEVES is totally INAPPROPRIATE, let alone DISGUSTING.
You are right on the mark!
Yes. He has a new atty.
That doesn’t answer the question.
S##T, I was really hoping Zimmerman was off in Brazil by now, especially since there is no extradition treaty between the US and Brazil. He could’ve been flipping the bird to Obama, Holder, and Holder’s people.
I’m waiting for the hispanic community to start defending their man. I haven’t heard a peep.
What’s scary is this could happen to anyone who carries a gun for self-defense. Shoot a black man and go to jail, no matter the situation.
Welcome to Obama’s America. RIP.
I thought for a while she was accepting an academy award.
America is a caste society upside down. The lowest caste rules by intimidating all others with threats of bloody riots.
I can’t watch it now, what evidence does she give for a 3nd degree charge?
Indeed. Isn't it time to name an aircraft carrier after them? The USS Sweet Trayvon's Parents: Hunting the white hispanic devil accros the seven seas.
Well, gee whiz.
What political office do you suppose this “lady” is pursuing?
I can’t watch it now, what evidence does she give for a 2nd degree charge?
This man should be happy.
Good. Hal and pals wasn’t doing that great.
I hope Zimmerman will get a lot of money out of this and hires his own personal security team. He’s going to need one until Obama is out of office.
Fatty McButterpants needs to hightail it back to the kitchen and make her husband a sandwich.
Yes, it is political. But if the powers-that-be think that kicking-the-can down the road will allow tensions to ease, they are sorely mistaken. The longer this goes on the more organized the Civil Rights crazies are going to get. Cities will burn. And that's just for starters.
Where do we donate?
Good. People who rush at the nearest TV camera usually make bad lawyers.
Did this woman use the phrase: “Justice for Trayvon”? I just tuned in this this presser and it sounded as if she used that phrase that all the protesters have been using.
My God in heaven, listening to this woman speaking (Levin’s show carrying it) is more torture than listening to Comrade Zero himself.
I didn’t hear or see the presser but I think some Freepers say she did ...yes.
Supposedly she was smiling all over herself, basking in all her glory.
This kind of scenario happens occasionally in New York City when police officers kill someone in a case that gets a lot of bad publicity.
1. The prosecutor files a murder charge against the police officer.
2. The police officer opts for a trial before a judge instead of a jury.
3. The judge -- who decides the case based only on the facts and on a strict application of the law -- hands down an acquittal.
In most cases, the same @ssholes who clamored for a murder charge at the beginning of the case often criticize the prosecutor for filing such a serious charge in the first place. This "change of heart" usually happens about two-thirds of the way through the trial, when it becomes obvious to anyone who knows anything about the case that there's no way in hell a murder charge is going to stand up under any legal scrutiny.
I don’t know. It didn’t sound favorable to Zimmerman. Hannity say he expects to be called to testify.
I’m astounded. I don’t think I’ve been right about one thing in three years.
She most certainly did use that stupid phrase ‘justice for trayvon’
She hasn’t put forth any evidence, she said she would keep it for the trial.
The inmates are running the asylum.
Actually, that is not completely true in a criminal case. In a civil case, discovery applies to both sides - in a criminal case, the defense is not required to reveal anything to the prosecution, but the prosecution must reveal everything to the defense. There may be some exceptions to the rule, such as in the case of scientific test results (to allow opposing experts to examine them), but that kind of depends upon the state.
This might be closer:
I feel sick....
You said it sister. I am praying that Zimmerman gets the defense he deserves and the first thing that needs to be requested is A CHANGE OF VENUE.
The country is gone. The demise has been accelerated by these monsters in the D.O.J.
It could be anyone of us bext. Then what?
We talk about how Corey is a wuss for caving to the race baiters. Then we say our law enforcement is more military than the police of old and seem more and more to be going rogue. We talk about how rhinos are cowards and scared of democrats and on and on.
But ladies and gentlemen,WE are the cowards.
