He is claiming a self defense immunity.
Which is different from "stand your ground".

His attorney was pretty clear about asserting a continued right to make that claim despite not going through the immunity hearing.
The hearing is ONLY for "stand your ground" claims, not for ordinary self-defense claims. Got it yet?

I believe you are wrong on that one.

A "Stand your ground" defense needs the hearing, ordinary self-defense does not. In other words, he KNOWS his claim doesn't involve the "stand your ground" law, so he's not going to waste the courts time determining what he already knows. What about that is so difficult for you to get?

It is not so much that it "needs" it.

The hearing is something to which the defendent has a right.

Only if he's claiming immunity from prosecution. He's not. Prosecute away.

And why would he do that if he had a strong self-defense case?

The Obama supporters will ultimately be disappointed, like the Obama phone woman from Cleveland below:

With these types of folks what can be done? Liberals need to come down from their utopian idealist Ivory tower and deal with the reality of the inner city Black Community.

who cares.

my post was reality, no spun fantasy like yours.

Reality is a hood queen like yourself is not smart enough to climb out of the depression you were born.

in fact you dug the depression to 25 feet deep assuring you live a life of victim, but reality is you are a victim of yourself and liberalism.

jump in....the water is ice.

a lot of young men feel their oats are unstoppable at anything, until reality bites them.

I am sorry reality ate this kid, but our entire society brought it on themselves.

That is REALITY.

at what point in time did criminals become victims pressing charges?

courts disallowing evidence that absolute points a path to destruction? Why?

got news for ya..........there are millions of armed people in America that shoot back if necessary.

so to solve the problem, don't provoke attacks.

You are lying again.

You can not judge 'agree' and 'disagree' on the same comment.

Maybe George Zimmerman is something of a slow learner, but he seems to be the one who is being bitten by reality.

There are not criminal/victims here pressing charges. The charges are brought by the state--as is their job.

Evidence may ruled inadmissable by a judge when it is irrelevant to the case at hand. Prior bad acts of the accused, for instance, are limited--unless some direct relevance can be shown (direct relevance being something more than "he did it before so we can assume he did it again"). Prior acts of the victim are even less likely to be relevant--particularly those totally unknown to the killer.

What has happened so far is a ruling that certain things cannot be brought up in court without a prior ruling by the judge--thus avoiding the issue of how to "unring the bell" should something inadmissable be introduced, objected to and then ruled on.

There are a few other issues beyond relevance with regard to the thing that O'Mara published last week. They also have to be authenticated--in other words, proven to be the actual words, pictures or whatever of Trayvon, and they have to be presented in such a way that they do not violate hearsay rules.

None of this is new stuff just made up for this case. All of it is based on existing laws and procedures.

Because they have even less respect for themselves than we do for them. They're children and full of hate.

They were brought because a Senator got involved and contacted the DOJ. Prior to that, it had been determined that there was not enough evidence to bring charges.
