"Based on the facts and circumstances outlined in this narrative, I believe there exists probable cause for issuance of a capias [e.g., arrest warrant] charging George Michael Zimmerman with Manslaughter . . . This case is being forwarded to the Office of the State's Attorney as a request for capias."

The above statement was made on March 13, which was after the case went national. Is that of any significance?

Re: “The above statement was made on March 13, which was after the case went national. Is that of any significance?”

I think that contributed to my obvious error here.

Serino’s probable cause statement was leaked after the Sanford Police completely shut down press access to their evidence.

Then, Serino made the statement to the Orlando Sentinel, which I quoted in my earlier comment.

A lot of us, including me, thought Serino was specifically contradicting the reports in the MSM.

I plead guilty to arriving at the wrong conclusion.

Is there any record of Serino recommending manslaughter charges prior to his March 13 statement? If there is not, then I would be suspicious because it was after Crump et al got involved.

The just released March 13 recommendation is the only one I know about.

At one point in that same time period Serino either stated or wrote that the whole incident could have been avoided if Zimmerman had stayed in his truck.

That caused an explosion of outrage here at Free Republic.

A lot of us thought Serino was “walking back” that statement with his quote in the Sentinel.

But.....

The MSM had it right.

And I had it wrong.

Absolutely. Please take a look at page 43 of this document. It is the last page of Serino's report, which began on page 35, and the relevant passage is the last paragraph.

I see Conscience already replied. Sorry for the redundant follow-up.

I'm the one who needs to apologize.

Big time error on my part.

I'm the first guy to grab the MSM’s throat when they screw up.

My turn to eat crow.

the question was (rephrased): does a racist have the right to defend himself against someone of a different color?

Dershowitz did not say he is innocent. He is saying the evidence presented by the prosecutor is not consistent with murder. He further says the evidence appears to fit the self defense story that Zimmerman has presented.

Like I said, Dershowitz said the man is not guilty....spin all you want, the liberal heads are exploding....
