Can someone tell me why some trials move this quickly, while other trials take years?
(1) The prosecution has very little evidence to offer, period.
(2) The defense was not allowed to offer much evidence because of judicial interference.
(3) If you are guilty, you file motion after motion to delay a verdict. If you are not guilty, you do not engage in stalling tactics.
This one was rushed because the “judge” didn’t want Zimmerman to have time to prepare for a proper trial. It’s worked so far, as evidenced by the fact the Jury will never hear about St. Skittles’ proud reputation as a MMA-style street fighter. The Jury may surprise us all and acquit him.
Perhaps this one had to be over before the NAACP Convention started. It’s July 13-17 in Orlando.
Because in this one, the prosecution had nothing but ‘hot air’ to present.
