Skip to comments.ABC's Dan Abrams On Zimmerman: 'I Don't See How A Jury Convicts'
Posted on 07/06/2013 5:16:59 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest
No wonder Dan Abrams left MSNBC . . . The former legal analyst at the "Lean Forward" network, now at ABC, expressed an opinion this morning that would surely be unwelcome at his former shop.
Guest-hosting on Good Morning America, Abrams opined that as a legal matter "I don't see how a jury convicts" George Zimmerman of murder or manslaughter. Abrams sees too much reasonable doubt in the prosecution's case to warrant a guilty verdict.

No wonder Dan Abrams left MSNBC! Ping to Today show list.
He is about see how a kangaroo court operates.
Abram needs to understand this has nothing to do with guilt or innocence. It is the annual Sacrificial Lamb to the God of Black Racism.
And that was done with the prosecution's own witnesses.
I cant remember the make up of the whole jury but there is at least one that should be smart enough to wonder why the Prosecution and the Judge would not allow the toxicology report AND why the Judge had to keep reminding the Lawyers of that as Defense asked if a toxicology report was drawn.
It actually does more harm because the jury is free to wonder if he was on crack, crank, purple juice, meth or what
Might want to ping a few here
I sure hope you're right.
Was the subject of the toxicology report mentioned when the jury was present?
Yeh — I heard him this morning. For 16 months he has led the charge for a guilty verdict and now he reads the tea leaves in his hot chocolate. He is pathetic —
After watching another day of this kangeroo court I’ve come to the conclusion anyone who believes Zimmerman will be found not guilty is using facts to cloud their opinion. This trial with a hell bent for guilty judge has one, and only one, mission....find Zimmerman guilty. Even if it is manslaughter, which carries a 15 year sentense enhanced because of the age of St. Trademark, plus time for using a firearm. The earliest an appeal will be rendered is just under two years during which time Zimmerman will be gone from the planet if he begins serving any prison time. The railroading express driven by Judge Nelson will see to that.
Although I'm not 100% certain I'm pretty sure that it wasn't.Having watched a good portion of the proceedings since late last week (6/27) it's crystal clear to me that this judge is in the hip pocket of the prosecution.I wouldn't even be surprised if Attorney Corporal Holder (from whom the state is taking its marching orders) has something on her...if ya catch my drift.She doesn't even try to *hide* her contempt for the defense.
From what has been presented in court just thus far a juror would have to have carried into the jury her previous prejudices and biases to vote for anything except acquittal thus violating her oath as a juror and making her subject to dismissal.
His previous decision was based on news releases. The latter on the evidence presented at trial. Liberals know how to create news. Conservatives lawyer up and shut up. Look at the critism Z got for being on Hannity
Even folks on fr find pertinent material and bury it in a thread , neglecting to pass it on or create a new thread to bring it to media attention.
We don’t act and then expect actions by others
Yes the liberals seem to be in control but basically theyre lazy or rushed to meet a deadline. They use the news releases they are fed
I don't see how any reasonably intelligent Jury gets to a finding of guilty, but this is FloriDUH we're talking about. Stupid bastards couldn't vote properly in 2000 then insisted on counting, re-counting, and re-counting again the ballots until they could find a way for AlGore to win the election. Thankfully that failed.
For sake of argument, let's assume this jury is reasonably intelligent, or has at least ONE reasonably intelligent person willing to stand their ground and find Zimmerman rightfully not-guilty.
After witnessing this judge's statements, the number of sustained objections ruled in favor of the Prosecution and against the Defense which flew in the face of the facts and testimony being presented, I personally wouldn't put it past this "judge" to set the Jury's verdict aside and issue a bench finding of Guilty against George Zimmerman.
Wouldn't put it past that corrupt dingbat b*tch of a judge to do it. I think the fix is already in, which explains her rulings in favor of the Prosecution time and time again.
There's simply no way this corrupt dingbat b*tch of a Judge in the Zimmerman trial is going to dismiss any juror who carries their own prejudices against Zimmerman. She's as biased against him and the defense as she could possibly be.
If we ever needed an example of a biased, corrupt to the core judge, Judge Debra Nelson is it. Her reputation is one of being harder on the defense than on the prosecution - indicating to me the Fed's (who are ultimately behind this case being tried) went "Judge shopping" until they got her. To me, that means the fix is in.
i agree with you... it’s like during the election and following the polls... the writing is on the wall for our guys, and we don’t want to believe it, so we contort reasons for the dismal showing, insisting we are going to win... then we lose...
People are hung up on the word “reasonable”. There’s nothing reasonable about any of this. I hope I’m wrong but I believe he will be found guilty. It will be a “Roberts” type decision.
It is as you say, I would not put it pass the judge. This POS was told during MOM’s motion hearing on dismissal she not only had all the info the jury had but also had info which the jury did not hear (some of which we heard during court arguments with the Jury out) which rendered a murder II at the least not sustained. She listened to his arguments feining interest and as soon as the state responded, issued her ruling in favor of the prosecution, no dismissal. I hope she chokes on her food this weekend so we can get a new judge. She, the prosecutor, and the DA are all guilty of conspiracy to murder Zimmerman if he goes to jail and is killed there IMO.
Exactly how does Dan Abram's have any credibility here? IMO, he's done nothing more than demonstrate a willingness to cater to his audience, whether on MSNBC or on ABC now.
The fact that Abram's may have finally spoken some truth on ABC doesn't make him a journalist by any stretch of the imagination. He's still a media whore shilling for whichever network he works for (just like all the rest of 'em. Lying, corrupt bastards all, and they should be the first casualties in the revolution, IMO.)
