Another question I have is, will that witness be called in?
Or because of threats?
I predict a hung jury outcome more likely.
That’s right. If you’ve done anything that might be considered a criminal offense, you don’t talk to the cops. Period. You will never talk yourself out of a charge but you sure might talk yourself into one.
Zimmerman’s brother should represent him. He put up an incredible defense prosecutor Peirs Morgan last nights.
Listening to a local talkradio show host say that the kid stood his ground.
Meant to say his brother put up a great defense against Morgan who wad clearly playing the role of prosecutor.
It was stupid for him to say anything at all — let the trained professionals handle the mess.
Mr. Zimmwerman’s father is a retired judge. The family isn’t ignorant. I believe this was wise. He’ll be acquited. If our afro-Aneruican brothers and sisters have any brains, they won’t “riot”.
Not true..not even close.
Murder 1 charge requires a Grand Jury. So that was out the moment they announced it would not go to a GJ.
The jury is free in FL to go with a charge below Murder 2, I believe.
M2 automatically includes the possibility of the lesser charges, I think.
The Feds can charge him with hate crimes but I doubt it would even go past a preliminary hearing. There is no simply no evidence to support the charges.
That should be the first thing out of his attorney's mouth - any jury pool has been tainted.
Take the 5th and ask for your lawyer and you can't go wrong, at least not as wrong as talking to the cops. The cops won't help you, they are not there to help you and they are not trying to find the truth. They are trying to find the easiest person to convict and if you run your mouth it will most likely be you.
Oh, please! This is about our Norman lords being able to pull the wings off a peasant fly like George Zimmerman, while a royal like Jon Corzine walks around free.
The racebaiters in the White House & in the media WANT this country to be like Britain, where the yobs can terrorise anyone they like, and any peasant who resists gets the book thrown at them.
12-year-old Trayvon gets rid of neighborhood watches, self-defense and concealed carry all in one fell swoop.
Norman lords like Sir Michael Bloomberg still get their phalanx of automatic-weapon-toting men-at-arms, but the peasants are effectively disarmed.
Win-win for "Dick" Holder and his Kenyan boss.
I read somewhere that his father was a "Magistrate" in Virginia, now retired, and entitled to to be referred to as "Judge".
Magistrates (formerly referred to in many states as "Justices of the Peace") are generally lay people who have the authority to take care of small court cases.
In Virginia, magistrates are appointed by the Executive Secretary of the VA Supreme Court.
You do not have to be a lawyer to be appointed as a magistrate or justice of the peace. VA and most states require only a BA degree, fingererprints and, in many, if not most cases, a long history of fealty and service to a particular political party....in other words....a substantial amount of magisterial positions are judicial patronage appointments.
This does not obviate the fact that magistrates, by and large, are public servants who are conscientous, hard-working, educated and resistant to corruption.
"I am kind of shook up, I don't want to say anything or answer any questions until I talk to my attorney."
"I'm feel a little confused and shocked right now, can we talk later after I talk with my attorney, and calm down a bit?"
Either one of those responses are all you need to say, and there will be no questioning.
Volunteer NOTHING. Not even what time it is, if asked.
He was represented by counsel at the time. The prosecutor could not legally talk to him and anything he told her would be inautdmissible in court.
The prosecutor filed MURDER charges because she knew that anything less than murder would not have mollified the mob. She’s a political hack and her decision was based on politics and not on the facts. If she had not charged him with any crime then she would have been a target for death threats and her career would have been over and Sanford would be burning. That is why she charged him with murder.
Nothin' like gettin' right down to the nitty gritty.
