Call for arrest of watch captain who shot kid

Mar 19, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: New York Daily News

ORLANDO, Fla. -- College students around Florida rallied Monday to demand the arrest of a white neighborhood watch captain who shot an unarmed black teen last month, though authorities may be hamstrung by a state law that allows people to defend themselves with deadly force.

Sanford, Fla., explains why George Zimmerman was not arrested

“Zimmerman provided a statement claiming he acted in self defense, which at the time was supported by physical evidence and testimony,” the letter, signed by Sanford City Manager Norton Bonaparte Jr., says.“By Florida Statute, law enforcement was PROHIBITED from making an arrest based on the facts and circumstances they had at the time.”(Caps are theirs.)

The letter also addresses the 911 calls released this past weekend, in which Zimmerman tells the dispatcher he is going to follow Martin and the dispatcher responds:“You don’t need to do that.” Many people have asked whether that exchange can be used in the investigation.

According to the letter,
the dispatcher’s suggestion

is not a lawful order that Zimmerman would have been required to follow.

Do you really think O'Mara will put Zimmerman on the stand?
I don't think he will for several reasons. Z has already told so many lies O'Mara is afraid his testimony will contradict his other statements. He can't suborn perjury, another problem.
He also doesn't want him cross examined. Remember, at one of his earlier hearings O'Mara wanted Zimmerman to be allowed to testify without being crossed. A laughable request that was turned down.
I think this is also the reason he won't go through with a SYG hearing.
In a self defense case with a jury the defendant is expected to take the stand. In this case there are no reliable witnesses that we know of...no one to tell George's story for him and the forensics imo don't favor either side.

Do you ever read any of the docs when they come out? Seriously, you don't know anything about this case. I'm callin you the liar. Serino was not overruled he was pressured into that affidavit of probable cause by the black officers. Why do you think he hired Baez, he signed his name to that sworn affidavit.
This is an article from the Miami Herald....maybe you can find someone to help you read it. Or go find the 300 pages of Docs. that were released.
Detective in Zimmerman case said he was pressured to file charges
The lead Sanford Police investigator who sought manslaughter charges against George Zimmerman told the FBI that a sergeant and two other officers tried to pressure him into making an arrest in the controversial case — even though he didn’t think there was enough evidence.
Sanford Police Officer Chris Serino first made headlines when evidence released in the case showed he sought manslaughter charges against Zimmerman even while his chief publicly said there was no probable cause to arrest him. But a document released late Thursday casts doubt on Serino’s prior sworn affidavit seeking criminal charges, and raises questions about the credibility of the star law-enforcement witness in the murder case against Zimmerman for the shooting death of a black teenager, Miami Gardens high school junior Trayvon Martin..
Telling the FBI that he was concerned that people inside the police department were leaking information, Serino cited Sgt. Arthur Barnes, officers Rebecca Villalona and Trekelle Perkins “as all pressuring him to file charges against Zimmerman after the incident,” an FBI report said.“Serino did not believe he had enough evidence at the time to file charges.”
In his FBI interview, Serino accused Sgt. Barnes of being “friendly” with Tracy Martin, Trayvon’s father. He said Tracy Martin at first understood why no charges were filed, but later changed coursse and accused Zimmerman of racial profiling
Records released Thursday show that Sgt. Barnes, a 25-year veteran of the department, told the FBI that he believed the black community would be “in an uproar” if Zimmerman was not charged.
Serino’s statement was among nearly 300 pages of documents released Thursday by the Duval County state attorney, including reports from FBI agents who launched a civil rights investigation to determine whether racial bias was involved in Trayvon’s Feb. 26 killing.
The summary of Serino’s statement does not mention the race of the officers who allegedly pressured him, but sources told The Miami Herald that Barnes and Perkins are black, and Villalona is married to an African-American man. All three, the source said, had been called in by their supervisor and questioned about leaking information in the case.

Just a quick refresher Sally. Serino was in the process of charging and booking George on day #1, officer Ayala was filling out the charging document when someone caused a change in direction. That unfinished charging document was made public, certainly you've seen it.

The situation you continue to reference-misrepresent occurred over a month later. The jury is going to wonder who interfered with George's arrest on the 26th or 27th of February and why they interfered. I've already posted that I think that George's release with no background check or request for a blood sample came by way of a favor to a mutual friend.

We'll learn in time.

Oh and one more time Sally, the Miami Herald is not a source although it's sources are. Funny how you beat on Robles when she posts an article that favors Martin and then link her pieces that favor George.

She's not a witness.

Speaking of witnesses, which one do you suppose had the felony charge that was plead down?

It will be interesting to see what happens. I just can't imagine Zimmerthugman on the stand. Which one of his stories will he tell? Will he be able to hold his story together under cross examination?
So, if you are right then they will probably go ahead with the SYG hearing. If he's going to testify, they have nothing to lose by having it. IMO.
Someone has to tell George's story, the jury will expect that.

Perhaps the whole thing was just a horrible mistake...but it was George's mistake not Trayvon's. Trayvon was just doing whatever, mosying along and by George's own words he passed on two opportunities to speak to the teen, one at the clubhouse and another when Trayvon passed by his truck the second time.

Based on what I've learned to date there was no legit reason for
George's call to Sanford PD dispatch, it was only 7 PM and just moments past dark.

Attorney Mark O’Mara said Zimmerman wanted to make a brief statement, and after he was sworn in, Zimmerman was led to the witness box in shackles.
I'll wait.
Yes, he made a statement to Trayvon's parents, even though they had refused to speak to him. In his statement he contradicted what he had said on tape. He was not under oath.

You just can't keep up can you? Zimmerthugman is not charged with perjury, his wife is. You're slow so I'll be patient with you.

George was never sworn in, O'Mara pulled a quickie with the my client would like to make a statement BS. BDLR was livid but had to sit there and steam. Shellie was sworn and while it was in a remote place there was an officer of the court present...you could hear Shellie being sworn. George and Shellie conspired via the numerous calls from the jail and Shellie then denied those conversations from the remote location, both were recorded via audio equipment owned and operated by LE. For his part George sat there and allowed his wife to lie to the court about well over $100,000 of bank transfers.

Kenny Lester was pizzed beyond anything and could have been much more harsh in his describing of the Zimmerman's disrespect for the courts. Recall that GZ remains on $1,000,000 bond which is unheard of for a M 2 charge.

What's with your need to lie Sally?

When did it all begin? Was it the Casey acquittal or something earlier on that drove you to the edge? Oh my, what are you going to do when George is acquitted, why not start acclimating yourself to the idea now. The reality is going to blow you away when it happens. Are you going to be on here for 5 years like you are on the Casey threads? Is that how you cope, just posting away year... after year....
after year....

and no one caring. I need a moment...shiff, sniff.

Disagreeing with you does not mean one is on welfare, does not mean one lives in a ghetto. You are evil incarnate.

I get you and silly Sally mixed up, you are both looney. But I hope you are not really a medical professional. Well if you are in the medical field, you are not professional.

Perhaps he did but there was no opportunity for a cross examination of George by the state at the April 20 bond hearing as you suggested. De La Rionda did cross examine Shellie regarding the family finances and as we learned later she was lying her az off which is why she was charged with perjury and arrested. De La Rionda also dared O'Mara to request a SYG hearing so that he could cross examine George under oath.

The video you link doesn't load but I'll assume that for once you're being truthful.

George remains on $1,000,000 bond with tight travel restrictions, the court doesn't trust him.

No way in hell.

The pedophile has already established himself as a liar- to the court, during his bail hearing, putting aside his four versions he has given so far of this killing.

And the pedophile has a temper- as we have all seen.

The pedophile zimmerman on the stand: Christmas present.

Serino is pretty wishy-washy, huh?
He was smart to get a lawyer.

Who, really, in the SPD should feel like they are gettin' "f-ed up the azz"? I don't remember who said it nor who it was said to. But, why would anyone within the SPD feel that way?

Someone should figure that sh*t out.

Too much work? IDK
