Man ... this sour puss is bending over backwards for the state ....



She is trying everything she can to get a conviction on anything but she is really just setting up a clear path for GZ to appeal if he is convicted of anything at all.

The defense should just assume they are going to make that unlawful argument, and specifically explain in the closing why it is unlawful. Hopefully the jury is smart enough to see through it.Another ground for appeal if he is convicted, which is why defense keeps disagreeing, to have it on record.

Im actually agreeing with you on something Hell must be about to freeze over

Hey, it happens to everyone at some point!





Talk about back tracking and trying to cover there rear ends
Guess they are desperate to make there sacrifice on the alter of social appeasement


If you think about it, what is the difference between changing the charge mid-trial and double jeopardy? The prosecution knew they failed to prove their case so they basically changed the charge in an attempt to meet a lesser burden of proof. That’s BS!!

they told him not to follow him and he said ok. or does george have amnesia about that too? does he also have amnesia that a neighborhood watch person is not supposed to follow or carry a firearm? isn't that the excuse he has for being such a busy body, that he was neighborhood watch?

They also asked for updates on what he is doing, where is he. It's a moot point anyways, a dispatcher is not giving lawful orders, just suggestions.

Wrong. Dispatch said 'we don't need you to do that' .... but they also said to tell them what else the suspicious person did. To do that, he'd have to keep the person in sight. And there is NOTHING ILLEGAL about following someone. Not a darn thing.

So let me get this straight....

Trayvon Martin was walking through a gated community...George Zimmerman decides to follow him while carrying a gun with him...the 911 dispatcher advises Zimmerman not to follow but he follows trayvon anyway...the two get into a fight...a fight that could have been prevented if Zimmerman had controlled himself and not followed martin. and now Trayvon martin is dead.

How George Zimmerman can claim he killed martin in self defense is beyond me really. It was him that instigated the fight and he ended the fight by killing Martin.

I hope they lock up this POS for a long time.

I must have amnesia because I never heard anyone in court say George had amnesia unless you are just full of hyperbole.

HA! The judge said West is behaving in a manner of 'misconduct'. The sour puss judge doesn't like the fact that he keeps showing how the prosecution is wrong .. and so is she!! She's dead wrong in many areas and keeps opening this up for reversal. She's a lousy judge.

This is why I have always maintained that jurys should consist of peopel who know the law. This should be a professional organization.

Your average person may not understand whats legal and what's not (as we clearly see here), but a jury of legal eagles can at least debate the case sensibly.

Hell, half of the population can't name 3 Rights of the Bill of Rights...

This is just nuts!
If the Z is found guilty the case will easily be re-tried (appealed etc..)

is going to take a whole day just to instruct the jury


The judge "will" be on "Squidbillies", I'm sure of it.

This trial is a joke.

Yes, the stupid prosecution have given more than one credible scenario themself! They took the circumstancial evidence off the table themselves.

Not they didn't. The operator admitted they do not tell people what to due because the city could be liable.

It is a suggestion and following someone isn't against the law anyway.

Again ... Zimmerman did not break the law. Lead Detective Serino .. a witness for the prosecution .. said that Zimmerman did nothing wrong and broke no laws. What part of that don't you get??
