They will hand pick a judge and ultimately a jury... he will be convicted! Because Holder's people demand it. I've seen this before. Backnin the 90s, right after the Rodney King affair, two white cops, plain clothes detectives, were arrested for the murder of Rodney King. The had busted him for cocain possession, he risted and wouldn't open his hand, which had coke in it, so the hit him with a flashlight. He ended up dieing, had large amounts of coke in his system, yet these two cops got 20 to life to preserve the racial peace. Justice, no! Cowardice, yes!

zimmerman is going to prison.....

I agree about the judge, but if it goes to trial they will have a hard time "hand-picking" a jury. The defence always has the advantage during jury selection. It will be interesting to see how long and difficult the jury selection process is. A venue change is also very likely. The defense has the advantage there, too.

Of course even if Zimmerman walks the DoJ will be waiting in the wings with federal civil rights charges. They are not going to let him get away.

...two white cops, plain clothes detectives, were arrested for the murder of Rodney King.

On March 3, 2011, King was stopped by Los Angeles police for driving erratically.
He was issued a citation for driving with an expired license.

On July 12, 2011, King was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Ol' Rodney must be a zombie.

I understand your sentiments, however the cops were not charged with murdering Rodney King simply for the fact he was and is still above ground.
