And then he is invited to the White House to discuss the fiscal cliff . Why isn't he charged with a hate crime, a race crime? What about George's civil rights?

He threatened the town if no arrest was made then "civil disobedience" boycotts and economic sanctions. He said George is just one man why ruin the town for one man.

A restaurant down town that I patron lost $10,000 because of Sharpton's intimidation.

Boneparte will be hiring a new Chief the first of the year it will be interesting to see who is hired and their qualifications...first and foremost must be able to kiss arses with a big smile on your face.

The same thing is happening in Detroit and the suburbs.

The thing is housing lost value due to the housing bubble.

People said oh housing will come back to what they were worth before.

I say no they won't.

Because the Detroit transplants moved in and hosuing just dropped another $20,000.00.

DADE CITY, Fla.(AP)— Authorities say
No one expects you to keep your word, Welsher.

Welsh:
"A related colloquialism is the verb to welsh/welch ('to renege') as in 'to welsh/welch on a deal or bet', which is derived from an age-old 'English' stereotype of the Welsh/Celtic peoples as unreliable or oath-breakers"

The biggest obstacle Mr. Zimmerman will face is impeachment. The State will absolutely attempt to use his perjury about his initial bail against him.
The pedophile thug will not take the stand.

His attorney will not allow him to take a single step in that direction.

He has already be PROVED to be a liar and PROVED to have problems with his temper and PROVED to have a drug problem.

The pedophile will not take the stand.

I have no connection with this case -- I would have loved to be on either side -- but most legal scholars agree the State has a naught but a very slim chance of prevailing.

Most of the legal scholars- those working for the state of Florida- are already trying to come up with a plea bargain the pedophile thug to sign. It isn't a matter of if he is guilty, it is a matter of how much is he willing to sign away without going to trial.

With the best prosecutor in the state of Florida working on the case, people who know what they are talking about wouldn't say otherwise.

Especially since the state of Florida is STILL holding on to the perjury charge and jail time awaits for the lies his wife told.

it is always the client's choice whether he will testify on his behalf. One's attorney can only advise the client on the risks and benefits of testifying, but ultimately, it is the client's Constitutional right to testify.

I'm unsure how you are arriving at your opinion, but I respectfully disagree with your assessment of the Zimmerman case, and you have made some obvious misstatements of the law. I am, of course, willing to evaluate any evidence you have to proffer in support of your statements.

I forget now. Did OJ testify in his double murder trial? I don't think he did. Seems like common practice in high-level cases.

it is a waste of time to attempt civil discourse with BareBrain. He is a perverted, twisted specimen, obsessed with oral sexual acts, incapable of recognizing truth, reality, or anything that doesn't fit with his preconceived notion that any black teenager who gets himself killed is the victim of racism. I suspect that he himself is a ghetto thug who fears that someday a George Zimmerman will stand up and end his life of crime.

Additionally, I don't know how much experience you have with Florida's judicial system, but it is extremely rare that defendants are charged with perjury. It is possible the State will pursue Mr. Zimmerman for perjury after this case is over, but highly unlikely it will do so. Perjury is a charge most often levied against witnesses, as Mrs. Zimmerman discovered. Since Mr. Zimmerman had his initial community Release revoked, the court is likely to see that as his punishment.

Aside from being an attorney, I have 10 years law enforcement experience, and I have seen far better cases than this one lost.

if Mr. Zimmerman was my client, them I would encourage him to testify. His narrative has been fairly consistent, but the State, of course, will attempt to make any discrepancies seem like mendacity. Of course, some of the State's witnesses have much more difficult problems. This issue of the raised police report will not play well for the State with a jury.

It will be a most interesting case. You can find my "tweets" about it @DillinghamLaw. As the trial approaches, I will be doing more legal analysis.

I believe Shellie was charged just as a tool to intimidate George into a plea. They keep continuing her hearings and I think they will be dropped.

Now if George wins full immunity can they turn around and charge him with perjury? I hate to think they are that vindictive. He actually wasn't even questioned by the prosecution after he was on the stand and sworn in...their big mistake. George has the right to sit like a potted palm (according to Judge Lester's analogy)) and say nothing...plea his 5th.

I belive Mark O'Mara has every intention in George testifying on his own behalf. In an immunity hearing he will have to. George comes off as a soft spoken puffalump. He just has to be careful not to say stupid things like "It was Gods Plan." that was poor judgement; I knew exactly what he meant but the Trayvon Tweeters had a ball with that. lol

Talked to one of my friends from highschool, whose mother had passed, and she had lived in the old neighborhood....he said the family would be lucky to get $25,000 for her house, and it was a nice one....Yeah, i think your right, this poor social engineering was more harmful than the housing bubble....

I believe you are asking if Mr. Zimmerman is acquitted on the primary, can the State charge him with perjury arising out of that controversy?

My answer, if that is your question, is a qualified "Yes, it is possible." Will the State do it? I doubt it. Perjury is the court's bailiwick, and while the State can seek prosecution for it, the charge is usually brought by the court ab initio (on its own accord). That said, this is a high profile case, and the State may feel very politically vindictive when this case is finished if it loses.

Ummm...

You mean like perjury that Zimmerman's wife was charged with, and with her trial now set for mid January?

That rare case?

It is highly improbable that the judge will dismiss this case in the so-called "Stand Your Ground" hearing. I expect the judge to rule there is sufficient evidence to take the case before a jury. This is a highly qualified and respected judge who has an excellent reputation for being cautious.
