This NTR must have really abused you. I merely meant to illustrate the duplicity of that post but have obviously accomplished the same thing.
I see you cannot dispute what I wrote and have to assume I am another. Oh well, I cannot help your insecurity issues.

You have good reason to feel optimistic today, especially where your work and health are concerned. Uranus might hear some great news, or simply realize that you're doing very well at the moment and therefore have good reason to feel proud of your achievements. This is one of those cheering days when it pays to adopt a positive attitude because things work out well as a result.
Hey, ChaunceyGardiner, didn't you once try to light a gaseous cloud that erupted from Uranus? The "great news"* was that instead of blowing you off the commode, it just blew out the match.(Bad news for the rest of us.) However, compared to the stuff you write, it was quite a feat. You certainly "therefore have good reason to feel proud of your achievements"*.

Note: While the facts above have not been verified, it is my opinion, considering CG's low level of posting ability, that it is at least possible this did indeed happen.

The prosecution has rested.

The defense is now in the process of arguing for an acquittal and a directed verdict by the jury.

This is protocol, meaning this is what happens routinely in these type of cases.

The judge can deny this request, and the trial will move forward.

It is not over.

Dr Boa is not doing the prosecution any favors. Didn't they interview this guy beforehand? He acts like he doesn't understand court procedure. Zim is getting a free break with the medical examiner changing his testimony about the affects of weed in Trayvon's system.

I'm starting to suspect there is racial prejudice going on here, but in the prosecution's side, not on the defense side. So far all they've done is present a stream of witnesses who mostly end up verifying Zim's story. Or at least being unable to contradict it. It seems like their heart is not in this, starting with the lead detective. Every once in awhile they show a bit of flare, but then it fizzles. What's up with that?(I'd even like to here CG's SuperBig Assclown opinion.)

Since CG posted the FL law (I assume that's what it is) it also doesn't look likely that the judge will approve any attempt to lessen the charge. I still smell "wannabe cop syndrome", but so far they haven't brought that point home too forcefully.

You can bet she will deny it, even if just to keep racial harmony in Sanford, FL. But the prosecution side was weak, wimpy and assclowny, to say the least. They went out with a whimper too with that last one. That means it can only get better for Zim from here.

Do you think this is a "show trial" meant just to keep the peace? In other words that they looked and decided a trial was cheaper than race riots, so they went ahead with it knowing Zim would probably not get convicted.

It's damn hard to prove "wannabe cop syndrome". You can't read a person's mind. Whereas anyone can see that being jumped in the dark & beaten might result in serious injury or death. They were not able to unravel that version. In fact, they supported in with several witnesses.... prosecution witnesses! You can't "unring" that bell.

Now, see if you can't get back to focusing on politics and policy rather than personalities. You are so far behind on the learning curve, there isn't a moment for you to waste incorrectly analyzing who is who and instead you should be concentrating on just playing catch-up.
Yes ma'am you are a failure. No it is not epic nor unexpected. Your focus is on what you can get as you need the gumbermint, mint get it from the government! You are a fool and the tool, no tangible resources. Did you retire early at what 62 because you had no decent standards of living without it? No real education ? What a tool you are, fool.

Whoa to those of you posting "Judge it" that say clueless or nuts. Disagree, fine, but tell me why. I'm open to all suggestions. I have been in Trayvon's camp so far, still smelling something that seems kind of vigilante-like. But where's the proof?

Am I the only one who thinks the prosecution did poorly? I'd rather see a vigilante set free than have him convicted on a hunch, flimsy evidence or for racial harmony. That's out of respect for future persons on trial, not for any regard for Zim or what he did. He should not have been carrying a gun. Damn jerk caused this by being an friggin' idiot. But if we sent all the idiots to jail there'd be more inside than out.(Not too sure I wouldn't do a few years myself!)

I think the prosecution did their job. They presented the FACTS of the case for the jury to evaluate objectively. They did it with trying to badger witnesses or elicit responses other than their truthful facts or opinions.

The defense routinely badgered, twisted and tried to get witnesses to say things did not say or mean.

I think the jury was able to see through the manipulations by the defense team. I know what people are saying and what they want to believe, but I think the prosecution did a far better job of presenting the facts of what happened, and that is what they are supposed to do. The defense looked much more desperate in their cross-examination tactics.

Ultimately, it doesn't matter what we think. It will be up to the six-woman jury and what they think and decide.

Howdy, yup its what we all call a real tragedy. Like the young cowpoke who rides thru a herd that's been rustled time and time again and gets spotted by some testy hard barked cowboys. Or the three gents at the Ox-Bow incident who couldn't prove their innocents in the face of overwhelming contrary evidence.
No one really wins, the only thing we can do is learn and hope that if a situation like this comes up in our lifetime. We can remember to be merciful patient human beings and do unto others as we would want them to do unto us.
