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.

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.

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.
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.

Were you confused when you asserted that the pedophile zimmerman only followed Martin for ten seconds?

Wow...Tough room full of name calling and bickering from all sides. Since the witnesses seem to be backing what Zimmerman said and you have to admit it took 5 minutes for every civil rights "opportunist" to come down here to Florida, whip up both sides and post pictures of Trayvon when he was 2 for sympathy...I'm not buying either side right now. Maybe we might want to actually see the facts before we start calling people racist or condemning either side? I worry when I see things like this because it just proves all the race baiting of the past several years is working and I thought this group was beyond all of that...sigh

Look everybody! It's my little puppy dog BareFool. BareFool is a full bred Troll Terrier. He follows me around wherever I go. He can't seem to help himself. I ignore him as much as possible, but that doesn't seem to work. He still follows my every post.

Bad doggie! Go away boy. Go back under your bridge where you belong and leave people alone.

That's funny: the only witness that "backs" what the pedophile said happen is the pedophile himself who has already been caught lying to court that is going to try him.

Up next: the pedophile's ugly fat lying wife.

The evidence appears to be in Mr. Zimmerman's favor. Subtract the political angles and emotional conjecture from this case and it appears to be a clear case of self-defense, albeit a tragic one.

Despite media assertions to the contrary, the Florida Legislature clearly enacted Fla.Stat. 776.012, 776.013, 776.032 and 776.041 for very good reasons. This case appears to fall squarely into those statutory protections. I'm handling a similar case right now, and the Legislators' intent was to avoid such drawn-out torture for people who righteously defend themselves.

I agree completely....many keep speaking to Stand Your Ground, but i find this case, almost the definition of Self Defense......I'm also surprised this charade of the judicial system, has gone on this far.....political and social implications, notwitstanding.....

Then what is your point? That you think Zimmerman was not a contributor to the outcome of the event and free from fault?

The case is going to a jury where it begs to be decided. Had George been arrested that evening, he would have lawyered up and we wouldn't be here opinionating about matters of race, the second amendment or the cost of peanut butter in Cleveland Ohio.

You were a cop and now you're a criminal lawyer...good for you. You then know that a certain federal agent interfered with the 'initial' investigation correct? You know that he was friends with the chief of police, acquainted with SA-18 and also a good friend to the defendant. Best friend supposedly and the one who taught George how to handle a shoot a weapon. And you know that no one in LE had a clue as to the identity or age of the deceased until hours after George was sent along no harm no foul.

Does any of that seem proper to you? It didn't seem proper to Pam Bondi did it?

You are doing nothing more than speculating. First, Zimmerman was arrested. I won't cite case law, but any significant deprivation of liberty--here, handcuffed and taken to the SPD--is an arrest, and the detective completed an arrest affidavit. Second, there is no evidence anyone interfered with the investigation. The detective called the SAO, was told he could not arrest Zimmerman due to the applicable FL statutes, and instead, filed an affidavit.

Having conducted homicide investigations, I see nothing wrong with the way this one was handled. Nothing at all. The SPD doesn't have a crystal ball, and Martin didn't have any ID. No one in the neighborhood recognized him, and there was no means of identifying him. Frankly, I'm unsure what you are insinuating beyond a general conspiracy theory, and I don't buy into those fantasies. It's like connecting me to Kevin Bacon: It can be done, but only through great leaps of "logic" and very tenuous associations.

I've seen many self defense cases, and this is one of the strongest. Zimmerman, in my opinion, is nothing more than a political cats-paw. There is very credible physical and medical evidence supporting his narrative, and none to support the State's case. It's naught but political football that should not be in our courts beyond a Stand Your Ground hearing, which a judge, not a jury, decides.

Then why don't they want a SYG hearing?

Why does O'Mara think it will be a tough case to win?

The medical evidence disputes his claim, it doesn't support it.

Are they paying you to defend Zimmerman on public blogs?
