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.

And idiots like you link that nonsense around the internet for reasons that only idiots like you understand.
If the SPD had arrested George that night or the following day on any charge, even discharging a firearm within the city limits this thread wouldn't exist and today's hearing wouldn't have happened.
George would have been given a PD or his family would have found him an attorney and either way George would have shut up and perhaps his friends and family members would have followed suit.
That's not what happened is it?
It's like Casey Anthony part two. It's really even much worse than that because racism has raised it's ugly head in this case.
So keep up the good work Omally knowing that your posts are being read by the state and the defense. And keep defending those freak sites and private blogs you frequent.
This is so true. Too bad some people are so bigoted and full of hate they can't see it.

Immunity is not dead, O'Mara could raise the issue of immunity after closing arguments in his trial, and ask Nelson to rule on whether George should be granted immunity from prosecution before the case is given to the jury for deliberations.
They were talking about pretrial immunity today...wake up! That's what he waived! PRETRIAL!!!!! Comprehend ?????
O'Mara said he will ask the JURY, not the judge to grant criminal immunity. He waived his right to a SYG hearing.

I understand, in addition to being a hating bigot you are a little slow. Or a lot.

George Zimmerman attorneys: State voice experts may be using phony science

George Zimmerman 911 call reporting Trayvon Martin

By Rene Stutzman, Orlando Sentinel
10:50 a.m. EDT, May 6, 2013

Attorneys for murder suspect George Zimmerman are challenging the scientific validity of state voice recognition experts.

In a new motion, defense attorney Mark O'Mara wrote that those unnamed experts may be using phony science, so the judge should hold a hearing, listen to evidence about how they did their work then decide whether to allow them to testify at Zimmerman's trial.

The motion, filed Friday but made public today, is almost certainly related to a much-played 911 recording made Feb. 26, 2012, the night Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black 17 year old in Sanford.

A neighbor had called police to report a fight outside. During her call, a voice in the background can be heard crying for help then 40 seconds later, there's a loud bang the gunshot - and the crying stops.

That piece of evidence will be one of the most important at Zimmerman's second-degree murder trial, slated to begin in Sanford June 10.

Zimmerman told police he was the one screaming for help, that Trayvon had punched him, breaking his nose and knocking him to the ground, then climbed on top and began hammering his head on a sidewalk.
Trayvon's parents say the screams were from their son, although, his father initially told Sanford police they were not.

Family attorney Benjamin Crump told reporters that Trayvon's father, Tracy Martin, changed his opinion after listening to a cleaned up version of the recording, but prosecutors last week told Circuit Judge Debra S. Nelson that they knew of no cleaned up version.

Crump last week said that when Tracy Martin listened to the recording a second time, at Sanford's City Hall, he was listening on a computer and could hear the audio more clearly.

FBI audio experts tried to analyze the recording but gave up, saying the quality of the recording was too poor.

O'Mara's motion does not identify which experts he's challenging, but two audio experts analyzed the voice on the tape last year for the Orlando Sentinel, and both concluded it was not Zimmerman. Prosecutors put them both, Tom Owen, chairman emeritus of the American Board of Recorded Evidence, and Ed Primeau, an audio engineer from Rochester Hills, Mich., on their witness list.

Owen is a courtroom veteran, but in his analysis of the voice on that 911 recording used a new software program he had developed. He removed all other sound from the recording, except for the cries for help, and using biometrics, compared it to a recording of Zimmerman's voice and concluded it was not him. Owen came to no conclusion about who it was.

Primeau used a different technique, based on audio enhancement and human analysis, and concluded the voice belonged to Trayvon because it was "a young man screaming"

George Zimmerman wants jurors sequestered

SANFORD, Fla.

The man charged with fatally shooting 17-year-old Trayvon Martin wants the jury at his murder trial to be sequestered and for jurors to be able to inspect the crime scene.

George Zimmerman's attorney filed a motion Thursday asking that jurors be kept in isolation during the trial and that their names and other personal information remain confidential because of the attention the case has received.

Defense attorney Mark O'Mara also filed a motion asking that jurors be allowed to inspect the gated community in Sanford, Fla., where Zimmerman fatally shot Martin during a confrontation last year.

O'Mara says the field trip will allow jurors to determine the reliability of witnesses.

Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder. He has pleaded not guilty, claiming self-defense. His trial starts next month.

Now that's funny. This is the first execution case I've ever heard of where the executor was beaten up so badly first.

Glad to see that Zim's attorneys are on the ball. They don't want the other violent animals threatening jurors or their families.

Sequestering a jury of six plus alternates in a 2M trial is a joke. O'Mara is simply playing all the angles and I don't blame him because he's got a client who can't be trusted to testify openly and and honestly. For God's sake they had to take the guy out of courtroom and prep him on to answer a few simple questions about waiving SYG.

I hope they do take the jury to The Retreat and walk them through the entire event beginning at Frank T's condo all the way to the spot where the scuffle broke out just prior to the gunshot. In that way the jury too will be left wondering why on earth the Neighborhood Watch coordinator missed multiple opportunities to speak to the teen from the safety of his Honda Ridgeline truck rather that hide behind the factory privacy windows like some secret agent man.

And the state wants to depose Shellie about her role in the matter.

Amazing, this guy was dying to find someone he could claim was a danger to his community. So he found a young black child, and made him out to be "suspicious acting"...so he shot the child.
The guy needs to face the full extent of the law.
And please, before those of you who want to take a political or racist stance on this issue, save it.
We all know that if this was your child, you...like myself, would be pressed to sit back and allow the cops to run this guy through the court system.
You and I both would be chomping at the bit to take justice into our own hands if this was our young child.
You need to face the death penalty and become electrocuted for your crimes against humanity

Zimmerman was mentally unstable, had a gun, and was a recipe for tragedy. That poor kid didn't stand a chance. I'm so sick of some people who defend Zimmerman, saying he felt threatened. How the heck does one feel threatened in one's vehicle with a loaded gun? Trayvon didn't even know George was watching him until he got out of his car to follow the kid. He probably scare the heck out of the poor guy, and then to shoot him twice. That's just beyond understanding.

Not sick, but confused. They create their own version of what happened ignoring the obvious evidence. They can't look at this with an open mind and question themselves about their theories. Instead, make the story up in your mind and don't allow others to debate you. Then when Zim is set free, they will be aghast at the outcome.
