"Does your client get to sit there like a potted palm and let you lead me down the primrose path?"
Sweet....The judge knows Shakespeare....big whoop....
What world are you in? Zimmerman has the right to remain silent. Even in court. He has no obligation to speak. That's what lawyers are for.
The judge can require him to be present via writ of attachment. Gz doesn’t have to say shit. Defense? He had no access to “gifts”. He was in jail. If they want to make a circus out of this, hold the wife in contempt. This whole thing is crazy talk..
If Zim don't talk, lower the hot lights until he's burning, and beat him with rubber hoses. If he still don't talk, threaten to put him in with the senseless murdering gang inmates...Keep spreading the rumor he's a snitch and hates blacks.
If the prosecutors are lucky, there will never be trial.
