<quoted text>Zimmermen did not make any attempt to withdraw before the fight started. Even Zimmermen's account of the fight is not realistic. He claims Martin is slamming his head into the ground (which would take two hands) while choking him (that would take two more hands), while reaching for his gun (another hand). All the time I suppose he is laying there helpless not trying to get any punches in on Martin the whole time. Zimmermen's story stinks.
It stinks for the prosecution because autopsy reports, Zimmerman's medical reports, and witnesses support Zimmerman. He will be acquitted.

Nice to know Democrats support Obama and his lies ..er... fantasies.
"What I find more interesting are the lies Obama tells not so much about himself, but about society. In “Dreams from My Father,” Obama tells readers that he struggled with racism and racial alienation all his life. He wasn’t a starter on his high school basketball team because he played “black” while his coach coached “white.” He confabulated a black friend in high school who, like himself, was shunned for racial reasons. He wrote of a “big fight” with a white ex-girlfriend who, after seeing a racially charged play,“started talking about why black people were so angry all the time.”
As Maraniss methodically shows, these and other tales of racial woe were false. His coach didn’t start him because he wasn’t good enough to start. His friend in high school was half-Japanese, not black, and neither of them were racially ostracized. The girlfriend, Genevieve Cook, never saw the play and never said anything of the sort. And so on."

Thanks for pointing out more lies from the scumbag in the White House. He and his hideous wife have chips on their shoulders about their race. They are racist pigs.

<quoted text>Well...you're right... he's not charged with rape...... yet. But hang in there... the DA has bigger fish to fry right now. And speaking of fish.... If GI Janie doesn't cop a plea to reduce jail time... he WILL be convicted and a get 25 to life. The fact that his attorneys waived the SYG hearing is a HUGE indicator that they know they don't have a snowball's chance in hell. Janie's story is TOO full of holes... and the DA is just gonna hammer away at different versions of his statement. If I was the DA.... I wouldn't offer a plea bargain..... but it's all about saving the taxpayer's money, isn't it?

In a less than perfect world,
1) GI Jane cops a plea and gets 15 years.
2) DA hits him with a rape charge.

THAT would be sweeeeet!
Sorry to bust your bubble but he will be acquitted and there will be no rape charge. Some neighborhoods that need burning will get burnt and life will return to normal.

He's not charged. Try informing yourself a little more.

<quoted text>The screaming voice on the 911 tape was absolutely proven NOT to be GI Jane's.

The Orlando Sentinel had two biometrics experts examine the Trayvon Martin 911 call where a shot and a screams were heard.

Tom Owen, of Owen Forensic Services LLC and chair emeritus for the American Board of Recorded Evidence conducted an independent investigation. Owen informed the Orlando Sentinel, the results from his test indicated the voice on the tape were not Zimmerman's. He used a base line audio recording obtained from Zimmerman to use in comparison. He could not conclude that the screaming on the tape was Trayvon because he did not have a base line audio recording of Trayvon's voice. He said he would stake his prestigious reputation on his conclusion.

Another biometric expert hired by the Orlando Sentinel was Ed Primeau, who is based in Michigan. Primeau conducted a separate investigation and concurred with the opinion of the first expert. Primeau went on to state that he felt the voice pleading for his life was indeed a young man.

Wrong again....
Witnesses heard a man screaming for help and saw Zimmerman on the bottom with Martin on top. Easily suggests that Zimmerman was screaming. The tests on the tapes will not help the prosecution because they have already been proven unreliable. Try to catch up on the case a little. You're way behind.

<quoted text>Perhaps you can explain it then, son?
The SYG hearing can be used after the state rest their case or after the trial is completed. The state has already violated discovery of evidence. The defense will know all evidence and have access to all witnesses after the state rest and that would be a good time for the SYG hearing. After the state rest the Judge may very well give a directed verdict if not the SYG hearing could go Zimmerman's way. Nonetheless he will be acquitted one way or the other.

I understand, FATTY: 70 yards is too far for you to walk & you'd call a cab.

PS: The boy had every right to be exactly where he was standing when he was confronted by your friend, the pedophile.
Only problem is there is no evidence Zimmerman confronted him. One of the many reasons he will be acquitted.

Yes they did son. Also the trajectory of the bullet that killed the thug will back that up. It's a little over your head son.
