I too have legal experience, and whether you like it or not, GZ has a Jury. Unless that Jury is tainted, he will get a fair trial. They cannot convict the SOB if there is reasonable doubt. The way this is leading anyway, someone or something will cause a mistrial.

This whole trial is a complete media creation. He wouldn't have been prosecuted at all had not the media force fed the whole country their race-baiting spin that GZ was some kind of vigilante bigot, stalking black youths on the was to target.

<quoted text>If you know about the law, you know that Mr. Zimmerman did not break any laws. I think there's little doubt that if this incident had not occurred, Trayvon Martin would have either died in some other violent incident or been incarcerated for much of his life. In fact, if his school had pressed charges as they should have, he would have been in juvie at the time of his death. As for Mr. Zimmerman, from all appearances, he had curbed his youthful impulsive behaviors (and was on medication for his ADHD), had a decent job, a decent marriage, and was community minded. I tend to think that he had put his youthful indiscretions behind him and that this incident was just an unfortunate set of circumstances. I don't know either of them. I'm basing my "not guilty" vote on the evidence and the law, not on emotion. I'll admit to getting really ticked at the sperm donor and incubator of Trayvon Martin who didn't care to raise him properly or supervise him, but are now using his corpse as an ATM. THEY make me sick.
Obviously, whether or not he broke the law is subject to interpretation.

Actually, it isn't. He either did or he didn't. What law are you claiming he broke? It is not against the law to get out of your vehicle. It is not against the law to observe a suspicious stranger. It is not against the law to defend your life against attack. What law did he break???

Was he possibly hunting out of season or hunting at night? Did he tag or record the kill in his game journal before the animal was moved? Firing a handgun in city limits? Disturbing the peace? That's all I can think of. The problem with the case is the prosecution looked over the obvious violations and charged Z with an offense that's impossible to prove. So stupid!

No, Zimmerman won' be a target. He has already used deadly force to try to clean up the neighborhood. He won't hesitate again. Plus all the money he will get from suing Trayvon's miserable parents, and NBC will allow him to live where the bad guys are restricted from going without being watched, like Trayvon.

I said accordingly, whether you like it or not it looks like he was in fact telling the truth over that one. Remember, he was on the phone with the cop up until he was almost at that intersection. GZ already reported to cop TM ran.
I see from your moniker you have a problem with right wingers? Does that mean you're Jewish? Are you here starting shit in this forum for the sake of getting your jollies? To incite war?
Ah...a racist AND an anti-Semite, huh? Wouldn't surprise me, such frenzied hatred tends to have more than one object.

Typical racist claptrap. He hunted down an innocent young man who confronted him, then murdered his victim. He'll be going to jail, where he won't have a gun to defend his ass from angry black inmates who won't think too kindly of him.

Trayvon was obviously never a "bad guy," only racist thug liars like yourself spread that shit across Topix. You have a lot of hateful friends here, it seems.

Hey, maybe you can write Zimmerman love-letters in jail! He might last out that first year, after all....;)

Watched some highlights of the trial last evening. Prosecution is the doing an excellent job FOR the Defense. Defense won't have to call any witnesses or any closing arguments. Prosecution is leaving so much doubt on Zimmerman guilt.
I would be shocked if a guilty verdict was handed down. Either a mistrial or not-guilty should be expected. Unless some miracle testimony or evidence, which has yet to be presented changes everything, Zimmerman will walk.
Like most Righties, you'll be shocked when things don't go your way and your bullet-headed killer Zimmerman gets jailed for manslaughter.

Dream on, puke! LOL

That innocent man was as high as a kite when he met up with Zimmerman, and now that we have learned of Zimmerman's school work maybe we should look at the Juvenile delinquent's H S records. Well, they started it, because they have nothing else. Zimmerman was an A student. What was the delinquent's record? Oh, that's right he was flunking out. He was a lot like his girl friend, one of those people society has left behind.

Anybody see Packing Heat? It is okay to carry but he was locked and loaded before he left his truck. He needed an easy target. He had tm on the ground and was straddling him. He then shot him at point blank range. The next day he probably planted evidence. He thinks he is slick. So did that Dooley guy. He got convicted. A 10 year old girl doesnt have a dad.

When darkies are hidden in the bushes locked and loaded is the only way. You silly bunch of bastards try to twist everything to the advantage of the poor little black child, I call bullshit! He was a damn juvenile delinquent that needed exterminating. I commend Zimmerman for a job well done too!

We will see who planted evidence. Trayvon was the aggressor in this instance, and Zimmerman had to do what he could to save his life. You can go on line, and watch the trial live. Watch the Jury. These women are serious. They will follow the law. It would be interesting to know how many have teen children.

I was flipping today and caught one of the liberal news stations commenting on the Trial in Sanford. They showed that cute picture of Trayvon when he was young, 14 or so, and cute. I know his parents must have a later picture, I've seen it, but he looks like a thug in hat one, and we can't have that, now can we!! Americans aren't stupid. The ladies on the jury know what is going on. The riots will be good, summer fun, and the Chicago Police can practice on how to handle the summer fests in the hot city. The hotter it gets the more dead they find on the streets in Chicago.

Well, if they didn't think he broke a law, they couldn't hold him in jail. They have him on murder charges. You're right, it's not against the law. What they have to decide is who was the aggressor. But for the fact that GZ left his car and followed this 17 year old boy who was just walking, this wouldn't have happened. He was told "We don't need you to do that". He was responsible for everything that happened after that.
