His lawyers looked mortified at the thought. I wonder what they're afraid of? Don't they believe in "Georgie"?
Because they know him, that his story doesn't work and that the prosecutors will beat him down with his lies. I don't think he's going to.

Gaaaaa-- the old PC my son gave me after mine crashed 2 weeks ago gave up the ghost on Saturday. Had to buy a new PC. I am absolutely up to my eyeballs in work. It's either feast or famine in this business.
This thread just caught my eye so I thought I'd just pop in for a moment. Probably won't be on very often.
The workload probably won't lighten until the end of August. He'p me!

Here is a spoiler alert:

Z piss may be a lot of stupid things, racist included, but he will fake wanting to testify but his handlers, err, attorneys will make a public statement indicating that their cliar, err, client wanted to but they advised him not to.

<quoted text>I respect your opinion. However, whether Trayvon was a thug or not, it does not give Z piss or the likes of him to stalk him, pursue him, and kill him in cold blood. If I were a neighborhood watch guy and I see someone sporting a hoodie with a picture of of an ugly klan thug on it or a Confederate f;ag, I have no right to stalk him and use deadly force. I just hope the racist Z piss is saving his money because regardless of the outcome, he will have to deal with a civil suit against his poor behind. If there was ever a time Z piss need his followers to send money, it will be then.
Flag, not f;ag.

If I were a juror, I'd wonder why he's sitting there like a lump while people who weren't there describe what happened on his behalf. I realize his interview with Hannity allows him to keep quiet, but as a juror I'd like him cross examined..at least!

Same here, but as a juror you can't hold it against him.

He told the judge that he isn't going to. Darn.

The defense has rested, George will not testify, the state has two, possibly three rebuttal witnesses and word on street has it that one is "very interesting."

O'Mara is asking for a dismissal of all charges...the judge say's fk you...the jury will decide this case.

I am not surprised about that but then again it was as obvious as the Alaskan airhead Palin using the same old tired line about running for office only to let her worshippers down by not running.

This is a different thread, why bring up old past things from another one? Who cares about Jodi? That is just another failed thread, there are thousands of them. Moving along....

"Depends on how long the recesses are."

He's certainly appearing as a person not firmly hitched to reality.

What a coward! I think common sense tells the jurors if this was a righteous killing, he'd be desperate to tell his story and clarify all those ridiculous statements he made on Hannity. God's will? How so?
It started as a SYG case in which he said he had a right to kill..he had the right to a hearing and if he was truly justified, would have gone for it and walked free. This just reinforces my thinking that GZ provoked the incident so as he might get to use his shiny new gun. If he gets off, I hope 'God's will' will be to kick his fat rearend up into Frank Taffe's! LOL

IMO it brings to question the innocence of a defendant who willingly participates in media interviews but refuses to testify on a witness stand.

I love it here, but beach side is getting very touristy. I used to live in FL Shores but moved further north, but right off of Mission Rd.

Who would think to hire an attorney within hours of finding out their kid had been shot? Trademarking his name and so fourth .
I doubt the Martins' care the kid is dead. All they can see is dollars.
They couldn't even give the kid a decent burial
I agree completely, except that I didn't see anything about the funeral. I would think that with the publicity that they went after and the donations he would have had a huge funeral. I just tried to find a link regarding any funeral services, and couldn't find one.

So eager to attack in groups, savagely and to victim's they don't even know....I was frankly shocked that Judge Nelson would'nt allow admitting Trayvon's facebook account and texts, whereby he descibes how much he really loves FIGHTING.....seem's it would have been relevant.....
