I knew it was bad news when it was announced that there would be no grand jury. The grand jury would have issued a “no bill” and there would have been riots. Our justice system is being held hostage by Jesse & Co.
Absolute HORSE CRAP!!
Political prosecution, pure and simple.
I think you mean persecution.
Sean Hannity said he knows there is video or audio evidence.
Not knowing all the facts, I can’t say that he should walk.
But not knowing all the facts the law shouldn’t lock him up.
Welcome to Obama’s America
Advice (from a black criminal) To George Zimmerman From a Former Fugitive From Justice
paging Saul Alinsky, paging Mr. Saul Alinsky.
EFFF U Holder and FUBO and your media lackeys too....
Oh....just... Spork Me Berry Mulch!
Can’t you just see it? He goes to trial, he gets acquitted because that is what the evidence will show...
then the riots start.
George Zimmerman shot a 12 year old..WHO KNEW..I thought the dude was 17..Yahoo(Run by far left clowns) but Sean Hannity has been running that picture for weeks too
Both political prosecution and persecution.
Politicians know who will riot, burn and destroy and who won’t.
Politicians also know they will be held responsible for mayhem and even inconvenience.
It is a very easy call for a politician.
They are throwing the book at him. This is the most that can be done without a Grand Jury.
If the information about witness statements and physical evidence, as reported, is accurate, this case sucks BIG time.
It’s the same reason artists mock Christian symbols, and not Muslim ones.
This is NOT the correct title and it is NOT linked to an article.
I’m guessing that Obama will make sure the trial doesn’t begin until after the election.
Anyway, I wonder if Zimmerman will vote for Obama again this time around.
This is absolute bullsh*t. This man was defending himself.
Its Political. Cost less to pay out for Malicious Prosecution then to pay for Holder’s people using it as an excuse to loot the cities.
No way can they prove all of the elements of 2nd Degree Murder Beyond a Reasonable Doubt now and the Prosecutor knows it.
That’s why she declined having a grand jury. She knew the grand jury would throw out this case, she knew that if she didn’t throw the book at him the hoodlums would riot..scare tactics, courtesy of Obama’s America
In favor of the prosecution or the defense?
Zimmerman is likely innocent, but will be put through meat grinder for sure. Even if found not guilty of these state counts, the federals will then bring “civil rights” charges. Like what happened to the Rodney King cops who ended up in jail for many years, even though found not guilty on the underlying charges.
So the constitutional ban on double jeopardy ends up being no obstacle to politically driven persecutions like these. If they decide to get him, they will get him.
(2) The unlawful killing of a human being, when perpetrated by any act imminently dangerous to another and evincing a depraved mind regardless of human life, although without any premeditated design to effect the death of any particular individual, is murder in the second degree and constitutes a felony of the first degree, punishable by imprisonment for a term of years not exceeding life or as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084.
I fail to see how either “following” (as some on FR claim) Martin, or even getting out of his vehicle to get a street address (as others have said) for the responding officers qualifies as “imminently dangerous” or “evincing a depraved mind” in this case.
Martin outran Zimmerman, lost him. So how did Martin come to be back in Zimmerman’s presence unless he himself came back to challenge Zimmerman?
Zimmerman cannot get a fair trial, what is the purpose of this action other than to sacrifice him in order to appease the race hustlers?
Ulsterman and the WSI/WHI are correct.
Race. Everything up, down, in, around, over, in back of, ahead of, circling, squatting, lying down. RACE.
The point is to have 13% of the population of the US, the Blacks, RULE. Everything.
Not just Whites. Asians. Hispanics. Indians. Mixed races. EVERYTHING.
And 0bama’s inner circle of Black-only security is living proof, press photo ops be damned.
Michelle, the grandmother, and all the hangars on are PLEASED.
“This is the most that can be done without a Grand Jury.”
Exactly! They GJ wasn’t buying it and that says alot about their case as a GJ would prosecute anything. This is political and will kill their case and their careers.
This is actually good news. The prosecutor knows that she will not get a conviction for 2nd degree murder, but she can say that she tried.
According to Wiki Answers, 2nd Degree Murder has an average sentence of 22 years and a max of 30 years in Florida. He will likely live until his trial by being in solitary. Once convicted how long will he live. He may be due jail time for being stupid resulting in a death. However, this case is now entirely political.
The Hispanic community should be in an uproar about this rush to judgement.
Where will this ‘’trial’’ be held, in Salem?
So, think they’ll throw Zimmerman in the general population while waiting/going through the trial?
I’m honestly not that surprised by this, nor am I particularly torn up about it. Zimmerman’s a Hispanic Democrat, and if his own kind won’t defend him I’m certainly not going to volunteer for it. The civil lawsuit will affect mostly the local HOA (of which I disapprove on general principles) and the City of Sanford (who’s taxes I don’t pay). There’s no way 2nd Degree Murder charges are going to fly, so there’s going to be riots eventually. But this buys me and mine more time to stockpile ammo and other supplies.
Courage from the officials involved would have been nice, but “... see which hand fills up first.”
Obama has drug this guy into Obama’s own personal world of sh*t.
It is possible that Zimmerman could be a tribal sacrifice to the Obama God.
Every time Obama speaks without Soros and Co. directly feeding him lines “uh uh hold on now, I can't hear myself” he just screws up everything.
Obama is doing this crap on his own, and he will eventually turn on Soros. That is his pattern. I don't think you will find very many Soros posters on the walls of the Panters HQ or Holder's office.
Does anyone else notice that Holder is assuming more and more of a Presidential role, as Obama implodes. And, they are not letting crazy old Biden out of his locked room very often.
Something is up. I can just tell.
No. She did not seek indictment by Grand Jury because she was not seeking First Degree Murder charges hence no need to involve a Grand Jury.
EXECUTE ZIMMERMAN TO AVOID BLACK RIOTING !!!!!! /sarc
cheese husk rice, so the race baiters win.
This could actually be the best way for the whole case to unfold from Zimmerman's perspective. The prosecutor shuts up "the community" by filing a murder charge, yet knows full well that it's nearly impossible to get a conviction and Zimmerman will ultimately walk.
If I were Zimmerman, I would have been far more fearful of a manslaughter or criminally negligent homicide charge ... because it would have been much easier to get a conviction on one of those.
Martin got on the phone and was talking to girlfriend after he ran for a few minutes.
And anyone who believes this will turn into a conviction, well...I would be prepared to be very dissapointed...
But if the jury is stacked “selected” in a very questionable voi dire process, you can bet the trial will be over before it really begins...
But even then, if he is aquitted...This will make the Rodney King circus look like a picnic...It’ll be a nation-wide riot...
I guess I will not be surprised either way...
The press conference is going on and this woman is sooo proud of her self. She is reveling in the event. Very sick!
Next step is to have Holder move the trial to DC.
She’s on live now, saying wonderful glowing things about Treyvon’s parents and how loving and great they are. Thanking a dozen more people.
Did not come to decision lightly.
Made decision not on public pressure...(yeah right)
She sounds giddy. Disgusting
Hey Angela, KEEP YOUR EMOTIONS OUT OF IT, B*TCH. What kind of introduction was THAT?
Postponing the riots, in other words. Intimidating the jurors as well.
