I pray for a fair and just verdict. My support and thoughts go out to the Zimmerman family and the defense team as we wait.

WHY get upset over what bloviators on Fox say? They don’t know anything more than we do. They’re paid to fill time with words, so they spew whatever comes to mind. Relax...
It will either end the way we want it to, or it won’t. Fortunately none of us will be directly affected. This time.
Someone should have pointed a red laser into their hotel rooms last night beaming ‘manslaughter is 30 years’
The cops did rule this justifiable a long time ago. Problem is Bambi took it up to take guns away and spark race war.
Entirely way too much speculation here and on TV. Why? The worthless media. unknowledgable talking head legal experts and anchors on TV. They are so wrong.
We do not have text of jury “question”. It is almost never disclosed except to the attorneys and THEN the Judge asks for ideas how to respond, what to say, or whether to respond at all. That is what is going on now. How do we respond or do we? The Judge is looking for consensus from counsel on this. It is highly unlikely she would repeat any of her charge.
Another thing is that jurors never hear the penalties. They can only go on what they know, i.e Murder = bad, manslaughter = well I know a guy who got convicted of that and he got 5 years. But Fla apparently does 30 w/o parole.
Any more Q’s, ping me.
It will be 6 months before I am ready to serve in another such trial (just tuckered out)...what about you?;-)
I saw most of that cluster $#@! of Lawyers on Hannity last night giving their 2 cents, just reaffirms to me that this country is finished.
Not sayin’ we don’t have our share of nutjobs, but the sweatlodge dude was in Arizona.
Hopefully, BO isn’t on the golf course and delayed her research.
Unreal ..such ineptitude. Doesn’t someone like a law clerk go over these instructions letter by letter?
?? Where did you hear that?
What? Were you a child bride?;-)
What don’t these jurors get about reasonable doubt. If they doubt 2nd degree they also have to doubt manslaughter.
A good scenario:
5 of the jury members understand the main elements to convict for manslaughter, which the state has not even come close to meeting unless the facts are being twisted in the jury room. The one hold out for manslaughter needs to be convinced that the other 5 jury members are correct, but wants to hear from authority outside the jury room for clarification.
George Zimmerman cannot be guilty of manslaughter by committing a merely negligent act or if the killing was either justifiable or excusable homicide:
That’s from the actual instructions, page 10.
Hi RC...I wish I could catch you up, but I’m shaking like a leaf...if you go back about 50 posts or so you’ll get the gist.
shes such a piece of crap.
according to sherry dewitt, DN left out that if you find GZ negligent, YOU CANNOT CONVICT.
Thanks SpaceJunkie. I thought that I heard something like that. Nelson may have done that INTENTIONALLY.
