Its crazy to think that Surbrina actually believes thats her sons voice screaming for help

I think she knows damn well that is not her son screaming for help,, but she will stand on that lie because its all shes got. What is she going to do Tell the truth and say it wasnt.

So is witness 8 lying about everything. From start to finish was it true that she heard a older man say hey what are you doing here. Its surprising that she doesnt recall what trayvon replied. It stinks

They're still in shock about the jury,...they thought they were gonna get 6 wannabe ghetto rap stars scratching their nuts with their pants down around their ankles,....truly a jury of Trayvon's peers,...but he ain't the one on trial.

They say there is a black janitor there that cleans the courthouse. Hes 73 old everyone is so proud of him. That's the closest this jury will be to any blacks. Fortunately.
Proud of him???...Why???...cause he scrubs toilets and mops the sh!thouse floor?...It's a dirty job but someone's got to do it.....nothing to be proud of,...unless you're a sewer worker...lol.

No way that the state can prove beyond a reasonable doubt that George confronted Trayvon.

What is the states strongest argument..

YEAH from Hawaii will say the dead body.. What a tool

Well, "proof beyond a reasonable doubt" is how they say it, and I'd agree....but in practice, you could probably change that to "convince the jury", because thats all they really have to do. I thought the jury choice was troubling. Both sides have all the evidence, right? Both sides know the law. So both sides probably have a pretty good idea of where this could likely (not for sure), but likely, end up. My guess is the Judge and the State know as well. And IF you think that Zimmerman walks, wouldn't you want at least a racially balanced jury with some blacks on it? I mean seriously, would you really want to walk unnecessarily into another OJ riot (all white jury frees Zimmerman) thing? But the same thing kind of works the other way too, IF you think Zimmerman gets convicted of something (all black jury convicts Zimmerman), wouldn't you want at least a balanced jury with some whites on it? And man, its like they over did it, even kicked in a hispanic for good measure. Just based on jury selection and a healthy dose of paranoia on my part, I'd say its not a good sign for the defense.

6 blacks = guilty

6 whites = not guilty

3 blacks and 3 whites = hung jury.

Like you said,...this ain't Los Angeles...You got nothing to worry about,....Zim walks!...Sanford burns,...So what?...better for one innocent man to be set free and a whole town burn than to see one innocent man go to prison.

I'd just add....jury selection is of course, not random. But even so, given the demographics, whats the probablility of no white men, and no blacks at all? Would the government, in a case with national, even presidential, visibility really seat a 100% non-black jury if they felt strongly that Zimmerman would get off with nothing at all? Yeah, I wish the answer was yes, that race played no part.....but is that likely in today's political environment?

No Jack George wants a FAIR and IMPARTIAL jury first of all and if that is possible without blacks so be it. I don't think anybody necessarily NEEDS a few blacks for ANYTHING.(Pleas note the caps too!) One racist black could taint the pool of jurors and persuade the jury that they must avenge the death of the thug. In this situation would you want a few blacks sprinkled in to satisfy the already racist mood of those highly controversial people or would you want your freedom that George really deserves. Im putting myself in his position and can easily say 5 white women and a Hispanic woman beats the hell out of a public relations stunt to appease the Afrikan "American" community! The hell with coddling those troublemakers a damn day longer. Let justice prevail!

George wants to be judged by his peers. That would hardly be possible if they were black! Theres not an IMPARTIAL black in the County that could be seated on that jury anyway. Not a single ONE!
Let the show begin. Innocent till PROVEN guilty. And what that means is George will almost have to admit he did not fear for his life.

Judge ruled today that the Prosecution can not use the race card in court. That's about all they had. They should just do the right thing now and dismiss all charges. The political witch hunt should end.

Well, let justice prevail is about the very best thing anyone could say. My problem, again with a dose of paranoia, is that this jury couldn't happen by accident.....its a million to one shot, like winning the lottery. IMO, this jury was constructed, and if so, why? At this point in our nation's history, please cut me some slack if I suggest I don't trust the government, especially if the feds are involved in any way. So, under what circumstances would the government (the current government) prefer a jury that has no blacks on it?

“always”
