The deposition of witness # 9 was made public this a m. You should change stations. I'll be on here long after you are dead of old age, and rotting. The people in Florida are bible thumpers, and gun toters. They will make mince meat of # 9. Zimmerman walks because they have an incompetent prosecutor, and there is not enough evidence of 2nd deree murder. That local jury will love George. Geoge will be judged by a jury of his peers There won't be more then 2 blacks on the jury, and the best they can do is hang the jury. Florida doesn't have money to play with this mess after that.

I'm being very frank with you - there in fact is no basis for recusal, on the simple fact that the defendant lied to the judge,(or misled - however you wish to spin that one). A judge has every right to be annoyed when a crimminal defendant in fact lies to him, and hs wife willingly goes along. There's no grounds for appeal here, none at all.
If there were in fact grounds for appeal, the prosecutor would have also abided by the defendants request also.


There was no reason to release Witness #9's unsubstantiated molestation charges other than to prejudice the jury pool.

Her accusation was a bombshell but likely would have no impact at Zimmerman's second-degree murder trial because it's not relevant, lawyers said..........

While the molestation claim is incendiary, "A jury will likely never hear about that," said WFTV-Channel 9 legal analyst Bill Sheaffer.

That's because it has no relevance to the Feb. 26 shooting of Trayvon Martin, the alleged crime for which Zimmerman is charged. "It should not come into evidence before a jury at all."

Sheaffer said it's possible the state could use Witness 9's claims that Zimmerman is a racist, but that could be rebutted by a great many defense witnesses who are expected to testify to the contrary.

But since you play a psychologist and psychoanalyst, instead of trying to rationalize the behavior of the parent on something that has nothing to do with the act of his child being killed....why don't you rationalize the behavior, thoughts and actions of the child killer and Thug, captain Zimmerman?
I mean, after all, Thug Zimmerman is the one on trial. A "suspicious" kid who was doing nothing but minding his own business was killed (murdered according to me and the state of Florida) by his hand.
Let us know if you believe the perp was on drugs and/or drinking according to his behavior. Let us know if the perp was going to the store or actually on a booty call run (he has been unfaithful in the past).
Let us know what the perp meant by he "emerged from the darkness." (No UFO sightings were reported on that day). Let us know the perp chose to deceive an American court. Let us know why the perp chose not to identify himself to the child he killed.
Let us know if the perp is being blackmailed by Shellie and that is why he married her. Let us know why the perp told supporters one thing about needing money but did another with his slush fund.
Let us know why the perp chose not to receive medical attention for supposedly "life threatening" injuries and only went to the doctor the next day to get a note for his job.
There are many more questions that need to be answered, Mr. Psychoanalyst. But the last I have for you involves a bit of introspection on your part.
Why do you choose to defend the indefensible act of killing a child who was doing NOTHING wrong?
Soon-to-be prison inmate Zimmerman is freed but he definitely ain't free!
Wow, don't tell me you are one of those parents that get a guilt complex when they read that sign,
"It's 10PM do you know where your children are?"

If so, reread.

"Back at the Retreat at Twin Lakes, Tracy Martin and Brandy Green returned to her town house around 10:30 p.m. to find her son, but not his. Trayvon had gone to the store, Chad explained. The adults did not panic. Trayvon was 17, after all. Maybe he had gone to visit a cousin in nearby Oviedo, or maybe he had met a girl along the way, and was chatting her up. Mr. Martin called Trayvonís cellphone, but it went straight to voice mail. Then he called the cousin, who did not answer, but he expected the young man to call back. They went to sleep."

They went to sleep???

The son gets suspended for ten days from school, his third suspension, and the father takes him to Sanford so he can be under adult supervision. Instead, the father goes to the movies and leaves Trayvon at home with his girlfriend's son, Chad Green. Trayvon goes to the stores around 6 Pm as a favor for the younger boy, doesn't come home, doesn't call, and when this father returns home at 10:30 Pm Trayvon is no where to be found. He doesn't answer his cell phone. His father thinks he might be in Oveido ten miles away,gets no answer there either, and the father goes to sleep !! So all of a sudden this 17 year old 'child' is now a 17 year old 'adult' whose father doesn't seem overly concerned that his son may be gone all night. Logic says Trayvon should have been grounded because of his problems at school or al least had a curfew. He had neither. Most concerned parents would at least try to retrace his route to and from the 7-11 store, I know I certainly would. Who knows?
He could have been mugged or struck by a hit and run driver and was laying by the side of the road somewhere, hoping his dad would come looking for him. But no, the father goes to sleep. The police are 300 feet away from the townhouse from 7:20 Pm to after 1 AM and all the father had to do was retrace Trayvon's steps and he would have known in about one minute where his son was.
Anyone who believes that is normal behavior for a parent is kidding him or her self.

Part of the problem is the vile and nasty racists on here who take great joy in the killing/murder of a Black child.
Part of the problem is those same ones who wish others of the same to be killed and/or murdered.

So, you have no problem with those who do such a thing? Point me to any of your posts where you have spoken out against that.
The Great Hider Zimmerman is freed but he ain't free!
Then you have those that want to lynch George Zimmerman even though it appears to be a legal case of self dense.If people were really concerned about the deaths of young black males there would be rallies every week in black communities across the nation with celebrities , both black and white, screaming for ways to stop the self induced genocide. Part of the problem is those who stand or sit idly by and not say a word about it.

According to a study from the Tuskegee Institute, the Ku Klux Klan killed 3,446 Black people in America during an 86-year span compared with Black men who kill about this same number of Black people every six months.

In two U.S. wars, 6,754 American soldiers were killed (including 2,019 soldiers in Afghanistan since 2001 and 4,735 soldiers in Iraq since 2003). Statistics show that more than 7,000 Black people are murdered in this country every year! During the 9Ĺ years the U.S. has been at war overseas, about 67,000 Black people were murdered in the United States.

Most of these homicides were committed by black men, primarily men in the 17-44 year-old-age range, against other Black men in that same age group. Black men comprise about 6.5% of the U.S. population and nearly half of U.S. homicide victims. Part of the problem is those who stand or sit idly by and say very little about it and become offended when people say "you reap what you sow."

Florida has the money.

They have the money to purge eligible voters from the voting rolls, including citizens who have fought in wars for this country.

Florida has the money to keep innocent people in prisons and jails.

I'm pretty sure they got the money to get justice for Thug Zimmerman.

In the unlikely event Florida doesn't have the money, I will begin a fund to raise the money. I guarantee you that the money that will come in to it will dwarf the nickel and dimes that child killer Zimmerman is bringing in with his slush fund.

I'll even allow the perp to avail himself of some of the funds for his commissary items once justice catches up to him. However, it shall not exceed $3.00.

That's enough to get him some tea and a bag of skittles.

Deviant Zimmerman is freed but he ain't free.
