I fear there will be riots after the trial.

It only takes one of twelve jurors to prevent a conviction. If there was a strong case to begin with, Zimmerman would have been charged the evening of the killing. He wasn't, so I am inclined to believe that there will not be any conviction. Look at the OJ Simpson/ Nicole Brown Simpson case, they had victim DNA at OJ's house and in his car, a shovel and a roll of plastic in his car, his blood at the crime scene...... no conviction.

But, stranger things have happened.


Yeah you should look at the OJ case, just because 'police had those things' didn't mean they didn't put them
there. I never thought I would defend OJ Simpson, but there is compelling evidence that he helped cover up the murder but did not commit the murders. He was protecting his son.

A lot of people have screamed 'innocent until proven guilty'...well OJ and Casey were ruled not guilty and they still are perceived as guilty by most everyone.

I know its off topic, but it was brought up to prove evidence in a case, and then someone getting off the charges. The OJ case is a prime example of just how the police will do anything to 'save face' and get a conviction.

OJ Simpson - The Untold Story - part 1
Thank you for backing me up.
As you state, the defense was able to create reasonable doubt in what was viewed by many as a slam dunk for the prosecution in the Simpson case.

What is the evidence that the prosecution has to present in the Zimmerman case?


They may have a lot evidence. The autopsy, the forensics reports, the 911 calls, the eye witness, they do have more than has been made public.

If this gets to trial I think it will end up hung. It only takes one to hang a jury, and I think his lawyers will be able to create reasonable doubt for 1 or 2 jurors, and it will probably be a heated jury room. I could be wrong, time will tell.

I would gladly change my opinion on this case if the forensics, etc came out and backed up his claims, I just haven't seen it yet.

Let's hope he is charged and sentenced to the maximum.
God rest that poor child's soul.



LMAO

i swear you people are disgusting the way you let the media decide for you. innocent until proven guilty? hardly when we have people like you drinking the kool-aid and not waiting for ALL the evidence and facts.

how is this guy getting a fair trial? there doesn't seem to be a soul on earth who hasn't condemned this man. so far i find it ridiculous that the PC white knights of life have over turned the initial decision because a few people got angry enough.

on that note, i will wait to see what comes to light as i am sure we have only been spoon fed media spin. here's hoping america's justice system will come through and make the right decission. i have faith there are still people out there who can be a calm and cool head while deciding a mans fate.

don't bother. i've tried to use that same LOGIC but it goes un-noticed. people seem to NEED this stupid case to some how justify to the world how good and "un-racist" (as one ats member put it) they are when race isn't even an issue.

star for you good sir (or miss?)

It has been reported Zimmerman is in custody in Florida. Looks like charges are coming.

I have a feeling they did this because you know if they didn't charge him the urban cities would have mass riots. I'm not being racist or saying he shouldn't be charged but look at what happened in LA during the Rodney King riots.

2nd Degree Murder

Now if the prosecutor can get an all-black jury, she'll have a home run and a bright political future.

Second degree murder, seriously? I guess getting physically attacked is no longer a good enough reason to defend yourself. I may not know all the 'facts', but I do know this - the "special prosecutor" filed charges, NOT the police. So the police don't think there is enough evidence but this SP does? I smell political posturing. If this special prosecutor woman doesn't run for office after this, I will eat a baby seal in front of PETA's headquarters.

/sarc off.


Completely right. How are they going to find a jury for this?

I feel sorry for the guy. He defended him self and he was protected by the law but because people scream and shout racist he is now being charged even though he had a legal right to do what he did.

America is one #ed up country.

Leaving the local issues aside I have lost all faith in Attorney General Holder. He announced that if there is evidence of race being a motive he would direct the FBI to investigate.

So he refuses to investigate and charge black panthers but has no issues on this incident?

is it me or does his actions scream of political posturing to use during the election?

Guess you didn't follow the case at all. The lead investigator recommended homicide or manslaughter charges that very night. So you are wrong the police did want to charge him......they were shot down by State Attorney Wolfsinger.
And the SP has already run for office. Her position is elected. She is well respected in FL. I guess you better get ready to eat baby seal in front of PETA.

2nd Degree Murder would be the biggest charge she could charge him with without having to go through a grand jury. From what I've seen posted about the prosecutor she likes to charge without going through the review of a grand jury whenever she can. I don't see how the guy can get a fair trial at this point, but that's a whole other issue. I'd like to think that those who have screamed so loudly about this case and need for charges will allow the process to work out. And even more so, I hope that those who have so expertly stirred emotions in this situation will just as vigorously work to cool things down now.

Watching the press conference now.

before the rumors of him being charged people were saying the justice system is working. now that he is charged people are saying he wont get a fair trial as if the justice system isnt working.

if he is found guilty the justice system is totally broke, if he walks the justice system is actually working.

sorry but please people. log off and go get some sun and fresh air.
let the justice system do its job.
