I swear he is getting more and more conservative as he ages...and the more I age, the more I seem to appreciate his comments!
You don’t even have to be a lawyer to see there is nothing to this. The defence attorney could have written it.
Dershowitz is a well-known Democrat with a column on the Huffington Post, but seemed stunned by how poorly written the affidavit was...
Of course it was poorly written. It had to be dumbed down so the ignorant cracker hating race baiters could understand it.
I think he may be having a hard time admitting that a liberal utopia conflicts with liberty, justice, freedom, and reality.
What worries me is that Zimmerman’s new lawyer strikes me as being pretty much on the prosecutor’s team. I think he’s a plant.
I think the fix is in.
This is going to be a slow-motion lynching which (since it’s 2nd degree murder) won’t end in an actual body hanging from a tree limb but “only” life in prison (where he will most likely become a body dangling from the end of a metal cot).
Zimmerman, I fear, is a lost cause. And though my heart goes out to him, I don’t believe there’s much any of us can do.
I can only hope this wakes up the Hispanic community to the reality of their “ally” in the White House.
This whole thing is orchestrated from the White House, of course.
Rush was talking about this. The theory is, that Angela Corey knew that Zimmerman can’t be convicted and never should have been charged, but for the good of her career (and perhaps, safety) she brought charges with a royally screwed up affidavit that would then force the judge to dismiss the case on a technicality. Thereby getting her neck out of the noose.
Just so, lawyers who realy love and respect the law should speak most loudly against the abuse of the law for PC propaganda. It hurts the entire profession when a bunch of con artists take over the dominant narrative.
I think Dershowitz really respects the Law and I think he sees where the Law has become simply a political tool used by criminals in high places.
Dershowitz is a liberal, but he seems to be a lawyer first and foremost, and he isn’t merciful to what he sees as sloppy lawyering. This is starting to sound like Corey aiming as high as she can and hoping to either get a jury to convict on a lesser charge, or get Zimmerman to plead to a lesser charge. With a good dose of Nifong-style pandering to the Democratic base thrown in for seasoning.
I thought the same thing, even though I am not a lawyer.......but I play one on FR................
Slow to anger and quick to mercy...
The last people in the world you want to anger is the Jews.
Slow to anger does not mean ‘never’.
Obama and Co. has done it.
The word ‘wrath’ comes to mind.
Zimmerman must and will be convicted, thrown to the wolves,so to speak. Facts and law mean nothing to his case. Blacks must be placated!
And I hope Angela Corey loses her job.
did zimmerman’s lawyer work for AMTRAK? cos the poor guy’s getting one hell fo a railroad job!
if this ain’t mob justice, I ain’t ever seen mob justice. the law? they don’t need no steenking law!
Here’s what is really going on: The establishment knows Zimmerman acted in self defense; that’s why the initial prosecutor refused to charge him with anything. To respond to the public outcry, they charged Zimmerman with second degree murder - a charge that requires intent and one they will never prove nor get a jury to convict on. If they had charged manslaughter, it is possible a jury would have convicted - but they will never convict for second degree because it requires intent. Before everyone falls in love with Dershowitz, realize that his criticism of the affidavit comes from this perspective - he knows the state has “overcharged” and therefore he knows already that Zimmerman will walk...so Dershowitz is lamenting that the fix is already in to clear Zimmerman.
“Dershowitz...going so far as to call...Coreys actions politically motivated.”
If by political he means career, then I agree.
It better damn not be thrown out or acquittal or the ghetto is gonig ta burn baby burn.
A Democrat accusing another Democrat of prosecutorial misconduct??
Say no more.
Dershowitz stopped following the liberal playbook on Sept. 12, 2001, when he penned an op-ed in the New York Times stating that it was perfectly acceptable and lawful to torture Al Qaeda suspects in order to obtain intel to thwart future attacks.
The media has largely ignored him since that day as well.
He was involved in that group, FIRE, that started a few years ago to protect students’ First Amendment rights on campus against administrators and others. The group has been very effective in protecting students against this overreach. I have liked him ever since.
