Whatever gave you that idea?
Oh I don't know, I suppose because I don't recall you being overly critical of O'Mara's lack of legal experience and foresight, considering originally he stepped into the case probono and turned "justice in the courtroom" into a fundraising affair, nor do I recall you remarking on the unprofessional manner in which he's represented GZ including arranging for his appearance on Hannity. IMO he's doing a better job at representing the interest of the media than serving his client.

The thought occurs to me case might best be considered "paid programming".

11:54 a.m. ET: Nelson said she is going to recess for lunch, and when court resumes they will take up the issue of third-degree murder charge. The live blog will pick back up when court resumes at 1:00 p.m. ET.

R. Hornsby says lesser charge of child abuse should be given, based upon Supreme Court ruling and quirk in Florida's child abuse laws.

You draw conclusions based upon "lack of" criticism?

Sounds a lot like chumming to me. Sorry, not taking the bait.

Something new in the US that State Attorney Offices absolve themselves from charging defendants with specific crimes, and instead hand over responsibility to a jury to decide what crime the prosecution proved was committed at the end of a trial? Sounds like a system right up the alley of those who support " professional jurors".

Recently in Palm Coast Florida a cab driver shoved a teenager around for hassling him. The cabbie was arrested and will plea or go to trial. That's how Florida law reads and that's what the Sanford PD missed in the whole "to book or not to book" episode.

If George had been booked on some charge, this case would never had gone freaky deaky.

Instead George was treated as a friend of LE and SPD never made a serious attempt to ID the dead guy.

Anyone who looked at the evidence knows that George Zimmerman acted in self defense when a violent punk thug attacked him for looking at him. We'll never know why Trayvon was so worried about there being someone who could identify him as the guy loitering at night and peering into houses, but he had a reason. Hope it was a good one. Whatever he was up to that night that caused him to be sooooooooooooo worried about being seen ended up causing his death. This travesty should be finished in a few days..........now we just have to hope that the ghetto apes can control themselves when they don't get their own way.
I know it, but you could tell that the State didnt like the Retired Officer stating that fact for being placed in the court records that George Zimmerman had no choice but to use deadly force.

It's not bait. I simply answered your question. Your turn --- in general, do you think O'Mara is competently representing his clent, George Zimmerman?

Hopefully these pitiful lesser charges, aren't seen as a way for the jury to justify the State's blunders in this case....

Maybe he's not as inexperienced as you think. After all, the appearance on Hannity enabled that entire scenario to be played before the jury, thereby taking any reason for George to testify himself away. That story is now carved in stone without the prosecution having the benefit of cross examining George themselves. Crazy like a fox, I'd say.

In the case you refer to, I'd expect a parent or guardian be held liable for CHILD NEGLECT ......lack of proper supervision. With legal issues accountability is always placed somewhere. Blame the parents! No one under the age of 18 can be allowed anywhere without constant adult supervision.

Is that what you'd like to see?

My opinion is based on facts, not Gorging Z's lies and has nothing to do with color.

Regardless of the outcome Gorging Z will never go blue, his lifelong dream. He'll always be a cop wannabe.

Is O'Mara exempt from " The Rule on Witnesses" ......which he obviously violated by his parading of Zimmerman on TV, telling his whole story.

Criminal Law Bulletin, Vol. 46, No. 25, p. 1357, 2010
University of Miami Legal Studies Research Paper No. 2012-10

Abstract:
If a witness hears the testimony of others before he himself takes the stand, he will find it much easier to deliberately tailor his own story to that of other witnesses. Witnesses may also be influenced subconsciously. In either event, the cross-examiner will find it more difficult to expose fabrication, collusion, inconsistencies, or inaccuracies with respect to witnesses who have heard others testify.
