But she's wrong.
Whoa, there's a real problem here.
This judge is a “friend” of the prosecution.
I can’t see who the defense can put on the stand that would o more to prove Zimmerman’s innocence than the prosecution’s witnesses.
Does that surprise you?
"He also said he changed his opinion about the effect of THC from marijuana in Martin's body. "
Well, there's an avenue for investigation before the Jury.
Evidence? What does any of that have to do with a sacrifice to the gods of political correctness?
No way THIS weak kneed judge was going to buck the p.c. tidal wave that Zimmerman is being drowned by.
Gee, shouldn’t a judge keep themselves out of the trial? Some Freepers now like interfering judges?
That's despite the fact that the prosecution's case is incredibly weak.

Let me say something here. If one of my children was outside screaming, it wouldn’t have taken me ten seconds to be out there intervening.
Trayvon’s mom says she heard her boy out there.
Did she go out there? Did she see Zimmerman on him? If so, say so.
Fact is, she didn’t go out there, because she didn’t hear her son screaming.
That’s the defense tactic right there.
Defense: “Okay Mom Trayvon, you are sure you heard your son screaming.”
Mom Trayvon: “Ah yes, I did hear my son. It pained me and still down pain me as I look back now. Oh how it hurts! I love my son!”
Defense: “Okay Mom Trayvon, could you tell me what you did in order to come to your son’s aid?”
Mom Trayvon: “Ah, er, eh, ah,... Could you please ax that question again Mr. Defense Man?”
Defense: “Sure Mom Trayvon, could you please tell me what you did in order to come to your son’s aid? You tell us you heard Trayvon in extreme stress, screaming for help. What did you do to help him?”
Mom Trayvon: “You know, I don’t think I like where this is going! Are you saying I don’t live my son? If you’re saying I don’t love my son, I’m gonna come down of this Witless stand and trash you Sucka!”
Defense: “Mom Trayvon, I am asking you what you did to come to Trayvon’s aid, because most folks here can understand that if it was their kid out there, they would have been all over this like melted marshmallows on Rice Crispies. You see Mom Trayvon, I’m not sure you did hear Trayvon. What’s more, I think you know you didn’t hear him. If you had, they couldn’t have kept you inside that night. Isn’t that right?”
Mom Trayvone: “Juuudge, do you hear that man? Do you see how disrespectful he is? Are you going to allow him to ax me such unfair questions?”
Judge: “Mom Trayvon, you can step down now...”
Mom Trayvon: “Thank you your Honoress! Peace and Sohama Sohama Lakem... Take that Mr. Defense man!”
Defense: “Didn’t hear Trayvon did ya...”
His uncle made a great witness on the stand. Very credible.
George Zimmerman’s Uncle Testimony: That is George Screaming for Help
That decision could have been mailed it.
That puts to rest all the criticism that his defense team took about not filing for a pretrial immunity hearing.
It is exceedingly rare for judges to grant these motions. But if ever there was a case that warranted it, it was this one. The prosecution failed to make ~any~ sort of case that could lead any reasonable person to believe Zimmerman was guilty of Murder 2. For this to go to the jury to decide the facts of the case... what facts might those be? What facts are lying on the table at all? None that have any bearing on guilt. There’s nothing for the jury to decide, unless they come up with a whole new fact set that is neither alleged or in evidence.
The defense attorney was correct to bring the motion, but the judge was correct to dismiss it. Prosecution has presented enough evidence that the trial should be decided by the jury.
I believe that Zimmerman's only hope for not being killed in prison by black inmates during his first month there is total isolation from the rest of the inmates for the entire long prison term that the obviously biased judge will no doubt lay on him when he's convicted. IMHO this trial has been preordained from day one to punish Zimmerman and whites in general whether he's guilty of a crime or not.
If anyone thought that prior to the time when Civil Rights laws were enacted white "justice" was actually white IN-justice in many if not all criminal cases involving blacks, (and as a native-born small town southernor who was born and raised during that time I admit that it often was) then they must now admit that the worm has turned, the shoe is on the other foot, and any other "old saying" that I can remember now applies in reverse to the current situation.
