Zimmerman will do time for something.
According to Dershowitz, what is on the affidavit doesn't rise to 2nd degree murder. He said it doesn't rise to manslaughter. He says a jury would HAVE to find Zimmerman not guilty based on the severe lack of evidence in the affidavit. And he says that any civil unrest because of that 'not guilty' verdict will be directly the fault of the prosecutor. And he thinks the prosecutor should be charged for not telling the truth in the affidavit.
This guy is probably the top prosecutor in the country.
He says Florida prosecution is doing a lousy job.
For the record .. during his interview at FOX .. Dershowitz showed no bias for either Zimmerman or Martin. He said that pretty much anything could have happened ... Zimmerman attacking Martin or Martin attacking Zimmerman or even two people doing stupid things attacking each other so both are to blame and neither is to blame etc etc ...
He was VERY critical of the Florida prosecution. THAT is what is interesting.

my 2 cents...if i were black in florida, i would be carrying a gun everywhere i go, and if any white person started coming toward me in an aggressive manner, i would just shoot them. that way you could claim self-defense and in fear of your life. i would use this case as an example of the fear that i have walking while black, sounds perfectly logical to me. also if a truck with white boys drives by and makes racist remarks, i would shoot them also, for fear that they will come back and kill me.edit on 26-4-2012 by jimmyx because: (no reason given)
