You are spouting that Zim is guilty but you can't post one shred of evidence that shows that
Morons claim a arrest proves guilt but that just proves they are morons
Evidence is for the court room Sherlock.

SANFORD --
Shellie Zimmerman, the wife of George Zimmerman, will remain on trial for perjury in a case that's tied to her husband.
George Zimmerman is facing second-degree murder charges in the death of Trayvon Martin last February. Zimmerman says he shot Martin in self-defense.
Shellie Zimmerman is accused of lying on the stand during a bond hearing for George Zimmerman about her and her husband's finances.
Shellie Zimmerman's attorney argued that the special prosecutor in her husband's case, state attorney Angela Corey, did not have jurisdiction to prosecute Shellie's case because the prosecutor was elected in Jacksonville.
“What we’re worried about is that the people of Seminole County, and their elected officials, aren’t able to decide what’s happening in this case, or in any case," said Kelly Sims, Shellie's attorney. "The governor took an extraordinary remedy, which was requested, for any matters related to the death of Mr. Martin, by the then state attorney.”
But the judge didn’t buy that argument, and denied Shellie Zimmerman’s motion to dismiss her perjury charge.
Meanwhile, George Zimmerman's attorneys will be back in court on Friday, to set a date for the stand your ground hearing.
And they are still collecting money via, "The real George Zimmerman.com . But I am sure they still expect taxpayers to pay for Zims' defense, claiming Indigence. Hope Judge is watching the accounts this time, before Shellie hides the money, again.

Really
Then why do so many claim Zim is guilty with ZERO evidence he broke any law???
Besides the fact that most of you are racist??
I don't consider myself a racist. I am a white woman, fairly well educated, and I certainly understand the law.
People have the perception that Zim is guilty, because of what they know, and what they do know tells them he is guilty of more than a Self Defense shooting.
Ordinary Americans can believe whatever they like. Presumption of Innocent Until Proven Guilty is a Term of Justice for the Courts to believe. The courts must Presume that all who come before it for justice are equal in the eyes of the law. However one cannot come before the court and expect Justice if he/she has "Unclean Hands."
Example: A Prostitute cannot expect relief if a Customer refuses to pay her for an act that is Illegal.
A Defendant who lies to the Court may have a Jury Instruction that says "If you believe someone in this case LIED to you about one thing, you may DISREGARD any or ALL of that Witness' Testimony.
In, Conclusion, Zimmie is in deep shit.

No wonder you're so confused about the Zimmerman murder case, look at what you think 'proof' is.

That's what is pissing them off. They think anyone should be allowed to murder any black person with impunity.
Isn't it interesting that all of the criminal acts Zimmerthugman committed should be overlooked and the non criminal should be vilified and condemned because he was a black child.
Any judgments made based on skin color are idiotic judgments.
Wrong again.........

Dr Steve Perry is a friend of mine and he is as black as they come..........Never think about harming him.....

White hello, brown and black thugs that think I should live in fear of them have another thing coming..........

Disagreeing doesn't mean one is black. I'm not black nor are a majority of the ones you argue with in your mental midget way.
Anyone that would say Zim is guilty and going to prison but cant show any evidence that he broke any law might as well be black........

lol! You keep repeating that I claim Zimmerman is guilty and yet, you NEVER prove that claim. But you keep right on making it son.

Only because you believe your lies helps your claim.
