The judge’s cajoling of Zimmerman ought to be grounds for a mistrial.

More like badgering than cajoling? It's sad when the judge doesn't know that she should address the defendant through his counsel......

And, quite frankly, it is none of her damned business whether the defendant testifies in his own defense.

I very much agree that the judge gave cause for a mistrial if not removal from the bench of justice. I have seen my fill of low level wannabe rulers going the lawyer-judge political route. Law schools make a good pot of money catering to such whims.

Is this even legal? Don’t they have to decide the crime ahead of the trial? They charged him with second degree murder and it’s up to the jury to decide if he’s guilty as charged.

Now the “judge” wants change the charges to manslaughter since the State failed to make their case against second degree murder.

Maybe I died and woke up in the Soviet Union.

How do you like yesterday, when she kept asking GZ if he wanted to testify, and his lawyer kept saying “I object” and she kept saying “Overruled! Overruled!” I never seen anything like that in my life. WTF? She was basically removing his lawyer in an attempt to get him to screw himself. This case is unreal.

"cajoling" - the perfect description.

I was amazed.

"Pleeeze? Pretty PLEEZE? C'mon... Really??? Awwww... Are you sure? ABSOLUTELY sure??? Awwww. No? Are you telling the truth? Think about it again. Let me ask you another way... Please. Really?"
