Skip to comments.Dershowitz: Zimmerman prosecutors should be investigated (References Mobile, AL racial beat-down)

Harvard Law School Professor Alan Dershowitz believes the prosecution team in the George Zimmerman case should be investigated to see if they committed a criminal act.
On the Glenn Beck radio program today, Professor Dershowitz said he does not believe the Florida prosecution team had sufficient evidence to charge George Zimmerman with second degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida. Unless there is additional evidence, Dershowitz believes the second degree murder charge is baseless. Dershowitz added that he does not see any justification for the prosecution to withhold evidence.
Furthermore, in an explosive charge, Dershowitz said he believes the Florida prosecution, may be guilty of committing an ethical violation, and potentially may have committed a criminal act by charging Zimmerman with second degree murder. If the prosecution had access to a photograph showing the bloodied head of Mr. Zimmerman, taken immediately after the incident on February 26, there was no basis for a second degree murder charge, according to Dershowitz. If it were proven that the prosecution had access to the photograph, and filed a second degree murder charge anyway, Dershowitz believes they may be guilty of Subornation of perjury which is a very serious charge.
...This is an explosive situation because there has already apparently been violence perpetrated by people who believed they were avenging the death of Trayvon Martin. In a tragic situation that occured in Mobile Alabama yesterday, a mob of African-American adults allegedly attacked a white man who had approached some African-American youth about playing basketball in the street. The mob used chairs, pipes, and paint cans to beat the man who is in critical condition. According to a witness at the scene, one of the attackers allegedly said, 'Now that's justice for Trayvon'....

Seems not...but have to say my opinion of Derschowitz has been elevated by the way he’s addressed this. Not so much a partisan hack as I’d thought.
This is not only what they expected. This is exactly what that had panned on.
Dershowitz would make a GREAT Justice of the SCOTUS. His objectivity is astounding in this era of bastardization of the law based on fear and political correctness. RIGHT ON, DERSH!
Where is the probable cause in that document?
Zimmerman prosecutor under fire (for a previous case)
I have always liked real liberals that are true to their values. The PC march in step with the Dim party every step to the hard left control of all aspects of society Dims are not my cup of tea by any means, but an honest liberal like Dershowitz or Hitchens is hard to dislike even you on many if not most issues strongly disagree with them.
Dershowitz occasionally surprises me. He’s a liberal, but not an ideologue. His position on Israel is strong. His book on counterterrorism was legit and thoughtful. His position on torture in terrorist interrogations is reasoned.
And, now this.
Are you kidding me?
This is exactly what they want. Keep the fire going so people will forget how bad ZERO is doing attempting to govern.
It won't work. . . . .
Honest liberal - one that isn’t just a commie using a different label.
No, this is not what they had planned.
What they had planned is "Most of us dead, the rest in chains".
And the fact that most of us aren’t dead and the rest in chains is a real sore point among 0bama supporters.
” They should “
Yeah - and unicorns *should* crap only green Skittles on St. Patrick’s Day...
(As long as we’re listing ‘ain’t gonna happens’... ;)
Zimmerman had to spend $15,000 on bond that he won`t get back if he had to use a bondsman. So, if this gets thrown out they at bare minimum owe him $15,000. The bondsman did it for 10%. Here in NC, the max is 15%. NON-REFUNDABLE with very few exceptions.
No that is a dishonest liberal. They pretend to be some what conservative to seek office or approval of some kind, but toe the PC line. That is Obama.
Hitchens and Dershowitz never that I have seen pretend to be anything other than who they are.
Angela Corey and her investigators MUST be investigated, before this case turns into a Duke Rape Case. Mike Nifong
was disbarred for bringing bogus charges.
Angela Corey must be disbarred.
"During the recorded call Zimmerman made reference to people he felt had committed and gotten away with break-ins in his neighborhood. Later while talking about Martin, Zimmerman stated "these a**holes, they always get away" and also said "these f**king punks"."
By the way, I don't think Zimm ever said "these f**king punks".. I think he said "it's f**king COLD" and even HE doesn't correctly recall what he said, but.. IT'S IN THIS VIDEO RIGHT HERE. Listen, starting about 2mins,05secs into this analysis!
The affidavit makes a claim that is simply UNTRUE.
