From the evidence produced so far, there is not going to be a jury—because there won’t be a need for a trial.

First the media said Zimmerman was white, and it turns out he’s actually Hispanic.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wrong. Zimmerman is to Hispanics as Obama is to whites.

Just because there was some heritage does not mean Zimmerman thought of himself - or even acted - as Hispanic.

LaRaza and other hispanic groups threw Z under the bus last month.

Eric Holder is primed to jump if Florida doesn't burn Zimmerman at the stake. Zimmerman really needs to keep running, he doesn't have a chance at justice.

He may be guilty of bad judgement but no more than that.

They only need to arrest him, then have him killed in jail. Or better yet: he will ‘commit suicide’.

If he is charged, there will be a prelimenary hearing. The judge could end it here by not going to trial.

The facts have never gotten in the way of a pre-planned riot.

The msg so far is bring him to trial or you’ll have riots across the country. If they bring charges it will shift to if he’s not found guilty you’ll have riots. If he’s not found guilty the Feds will also try him after the riots to keep from having more riots. The idea that riots will occur (MSM will show what happened after Simi Valley verdict and do so repeatedly) will be in the jury’s mind. It’s very tough to vote not guilty when the result is going to be riots like the ones in LA.

In the last LA riots, some of our extended family sat at the home of our uncle, because he owned a gun.

They all sat in one of distant bedrooms and uncle sat in front of the door, holding loaded revolver.

Today these same relatives still unprepared, voting for BO, cursing Right Wingers.

The uncle died awhile ago. He owned a gun because he remembered SS breaking down doors in Poland back in 40’s.

It may take few “victims” to wise up, then again, they’ll all will gather at station to board the train meekly.

Very loosely white and Hispanic due mainly to language. He's half Peruvian who are mostly descendants of the ancient Incas or a mix of white and Inca.

Give you book that if a state jury acquits Zimmerman, or if the state prosecutor declines to prosecute, the Feds will step in and try him on a violation of the kid’s civil rights. you know. One of Holder’s people. What Obozo’s son would have looked like.

I disagree, this reminds me the most of the trials of the police officers in the Rodney King case. While they were initially acquitted by a jury, the Feds swooped in and tried them again to make sure that the angry minorities in Los Angeles got the conviction they wanted. It was truly disgusting, and destroyed my faith in justice.

Since the old msm ruined any chances for a fair trail, I doubt there will be even charges at all will be brought up.

OJ had a jury trial and there couldn’t have been 12 other more moronic individuals gathered in one place... my bad, there’s Congress.

From the law as written, the prosecution would have the burden of proof to show beyond a reasonable doubt that Zimmerman did NOT act in self-defense.

I doubt they can do that.

Federal prosecution would be another story.

Remember the LA Riots? They started when the cops in the Rodney King incident were found not guilty. The cops were then indicted under federal law, and the "double jeopardy" aspects were ignored.

The variable that worries me the most is the New Black Panthers. Their bounty on Zimmerman’s head is troubling, to say the least. Some knucklehead MUST be thinking about that $10,000 prize!

What happens if somebody finds Zimmerman beforehand, for example by tracing his phone calls? Would he face a summary execution (lynching) or just a beating? The “wanted poster” says “dead or alive” and I’ll bet somebody is thinking about the “dead” part first.

Would they try to take Zimmerman out with a sniper, at the courthouse? Zimmerman will need to appear in court, so there is no chance he can stay hidden for long. Does Zimmerman have the sense to ask for a ride to court in an armored SWAT vehicle? Will they go out of state to pick him up?

And what will the JustUs Department do if Zimmerman gets killed before the trial? I expect an apology would be out of the question ...
