The Sanford Police Department was unable to obtain any evidence that would allow them to press even involuntary manslaughter charges against Zimmerman. And no new evidence changed that, even as days and weeks passed.

My family has personal experience on why you should never help police with ANYTHING.

That is kind of taking it too far. I think a better way to put it is (and you may have meant this anyway), don't help the police if you or anyone you care about is in any way under suspicion of committing a crime. Even if you or the person(s) you care about are completely innocent, it is always better to have a lawyer present. Outside of that, I feel we should help law enforcement wherever reasonably possible.

“Talking to the police only digs your hole deeper.”

Because some lawyer, defense or government, is going to try to screw you to the wall............even if you are only a witness.

The kid didn’t know you can’t make a move in Obama’s America without a lawyer next to you. I sure hope his innocence didn’t screw him.

He is not going to be acquited. He will be given a “show trial” and convicted. This charge is politically motivated by cowards who are afraid to do their duty.

Because he is a decent and most importantly, innocent man.

When this goes to trial, the defense is going to ask all the officers who had contact with George Zimmerman this question.

“Officer, during your contact, interview, interrogation or other communication medium, did you at any time detect deliberate deception or evasion?

“In your investigation did you at any time find that George Zimmerman failed to disclose fully his actions on the night in question?”

Folks, the Sanford Police Department is a state accredited agency. They would be MANDATED to film any interview or interrogation of George Zimmerman for his involvement in a capital or life crime. That interrogation tape will reveal his emotional state, and attempts to derail, mislead or stall the process. Couple that with his VOLUNTARY decision to reenact the incident for the police, (which is a great rarity and will be gold for the defense) and you have an acquittal.

Murderers reenact what they did AFTER they make a deal, not before.

I can’t be to specific but lets just say I come from a small town and someone in my family was nearly killed with a shotgun blast to the chest.

We allowed the police to talk to him to get a description while he was heavily medicated and on a ventilator, nearly unconscious, because we thought he was about to die (and he was.) Well, he could barely form a single word let alone sentences and they came out with pages of notes.

Well it turns out one of the people that were on the “bad” side was a police officer’s delinquent son and things went south for our “good” kids.

They denied they were shot with a shotgun even though the doctor pulled pellets out of them and they are still pulling pellets out to this day. They charged the person basically with assaulting himself because he should have anticipated he would have been shot.

Obviously there are more details and even though we live in a good town our kids shouldn’t have been hanging out that late on a weekend. The kids in the neighboring small town however are heavily into gangs.

We no longer trust police with anything. The end of the trail of our group ended with a mistrial and the DA came back with so many charges everyone had to plea because no matter what you do, you can always be guilty of something.

“Then the next day, still without any attorney present or legal advice, Zimmerman took the police back to the scene of the shooting at the Retreat at Twin Lakes, and reenacted what happened on the evening of February 26th with them, step-by-step on video.”

In all the postings of news reports previously made here of FR, this is the first I recall that tells of a “re-enactment” for police that was videotaped. Why have we not heard of this before?

If this is true, it’s VIS (very important stuff)....

Re: If This True

The New York Times is the source.

I picked up the story from

Wagist has the embedded link, I read the NYT article, and that's exactly what it says.

I was shocked, too.

That’s messed up. Sorry to hear it.
I personally have never had a bad encounter with any cop whether I was pulled over, or had to speak to them about something I witnessed, or the 2 odd times I have ever had to call them to my house (jerk neighbors).
Lot’s of messed up stories out there, I just haven’t had it happen to me, maybe I’m lucky or just really boring.
