Skip to comments.Mark O'Mara Press Conference For Charges Against George Zimmerman
Posted on 04/12/2012 3:49:18 AM PDT by Third Person
George Zimmerman's new attorney, Mark O'Mara, held a news conference shortly after Florida state prosecutors announce second-degree murder charges against Zimmerman in the shooting death of teen Trayvon Martin. The lawyer said that Zimmerman is worried that he may not get a fair trial.
Thanks for the link!
There is NO WAY he will get a fair trial.
I know people in Sanford and the mood of the people is livid at the Shapton's , Jackson and Media.
Of course he won't. Mr. Zimmerman knows that if they don't hang him by the neck until dead; the ferals will burn everything in sight, and we simply can't have that.
I think Zimmerman's atty is talking about the trial being elsewhere...
This should not be happening in our country.....but after the Duke fiasco, why am I surprised.
can you hear teh whistle? can you see the headlight? the train is a commin, and zimmerman’s getting railroaded....
O’Mara sounds, looks and acts like a dork and a loser.
Z-man really screwed the pooch, sabotaging a good legal team.
1. Before the self defense or “stand your grown” law can be activated a person must be charged. After the charge, he then must go before a judge in a pretrial hearing and plead one or both of the two. At that time a judge listens to evidence to support the ruling and decides whether to proceed to trial or dismiss the case.
2. TM’s parents can't bring a civil suit against GZ unless he is charged. If their likely litigation null and void if the case is dismissed?
Completely disagree. The team you think so highly didn’t even attempt to do a face to face interview with Zimmerman. Some of their comments at the Tuesday new conference IMO were boarderline unethical.
That was my impression too.
I don't think it will matter who his attorney is, might just as well go for the cheapest.
Mr. Fast & Furious said he will look into federal civil rights violations.
If he gets off in Sanford he will get it from ZERO.
The race baiters won and now will not settle for anything less than about 25 years.
I’m 15 min away from Sanford. I’ve heard O’Mara is excellent from another defense atty’s wife. I’m hopeful that’s true.
The two that held the press conf made asses of themselves and, according to O’Mara in his PC, he said they lied.
We are coming into “hung jury” territory.
Same here. Winter Springs.
We might be in the same fox hole later.
I’d like to donate to Zimmerman’s legal defense fund. He’s being politically prosecuted for defending himself against a Protected Minority.
Those two were about as useless as you can get. They are the reason Attorneys get a bad name. OK One of the reasons.
I understand they were working pro bono (for free) They were just trying to get noticed. They got noticed and won't get any cases off this.
As the ghost of things to come, I would like to direct the prosecutor’s attention to the now bankrupt Mike Nifong.
I disagree. He comes across as being calm, level-headed, and organized. This is what Zimmerman needs right now.
O'Mara will be a stark contrast to the rabid state prosecution.
He’s a lawyer, what did you expect, George Clooney for cry in’ out loud?
I would go to court with O’Mara. Besides, he’s Irish. I’m Irish.
Hey neighbor! I’m in Winter Park :)
Fox hole indeed! Be prepared, it’s coming.
I have been buying precious metals ever since ZERO got in. No Not Gold & Silver. Copper, Brass & Lead.
When the new/old/same old black panthers made their statements I doubled up. . . .
If Corey charged, and she lacks a preponderance of the evidence that Zimmerman's use of force was unreasonable, the Corey has acted illegally. There is no remedy against her for her illegal action, but it is still illegal under FL law.
Zimmerman will present his argument for immunity before a judge. If the judge finds it more likely than not that Zimmerman reasonably acted in self defense, then immunity attaches - for both criminal charges and civil claims.
If Crump jumps the gun, and files a civil suit, and later Zimmerman is found immune, then Martin/Crump will have to pay for all of Zimmerman's costs and losses associated with defending the civil case.
I've posted numerous remarks at JOM, in Zimmerman Charged With Second Degree Murder. Feel free to cut and paste anything I've put there, over here. Note that some of my posts have my handle a clickable link. Those are to news reports, case law, and other substantiating information for my remarks.
Same for us. There’s actually a good gun shop in Sanford, according to hubby, called A&N(?—I think).
I got my license at Buffalo Bill’s on Mills in Orl. They are a good group of peeps.
They (the idiots) are waging war on those of us that aim to protect ourselves and by God, I will NOT succumb.
Thanks. Answers a lot of questions.
We need to make sure Zero is back in Chicago before that can happen.
I wish the guy had my cousin who is a prominant defense attorney in Tampa. He would get Zimmerman off at the pre-trial.
