People with bad tempers get into bar fights.

They also get restraining orders placed on them.

Getting fired from a job for having a bad temper is also a sign of having a bad temper.

Unfortunately, not all are prohibited from carrying firearms or the teenage boy that this pedophile shot would be alive.

Bullship with a ridiculous story like that. You still aren't there. Why don't you watch the show COPS sometime and tell me what episode was similar to yours? The law is you lay one finger on a police officer for whatever reason, you will be charged with a felony. You can't touch a police officer in any way.

You mean the COPS show where there is frequent pushing and shoving and frequent "you are lucky, I could charge you" lectures given but persons not charged?

I don't spend a lot of time- I find the show to be largely self-serving and I don't see enough episodes where people get away.

It's like watching the lottery commercials where there is always at least one winner.

on 16 January 2013.

The Zimmerman defense received the school records of Trayvon Martin, as ordered by Judge Nelson. When we asked the Court to issue Subpoenas Duces Tecum for the school records, the State objected, and Mr. Crump, on behalf of the Martin family, registered a public objection. They argued, in part, that George Zimmerman did not know Trayvon Martin before the night of February 26, 2012, and so the nature of Trayvon’s character as revealed in the school records is irrelevant to the case at hand.

The Judge ruled that the defense should have the records. This ruling was based, in large part, on a case called State v. Munoz, 45 So 3d 954 (3 DCA 2010). That case holds that, under the right circumstances, a person's reputation for violence may be admissible in a case, even if the person accused of the crime was unaware of the reputation. The case focuses on the issue of the whether the person with the reputation may have acted aggressively in this case.

We are entitled to receive the school records because some information in Trayvon Martin’s file could be relevant in the defense of George Zimmerman. Moreover, information provided in the file could lead to other discoverable information that may be relevant in the defense. It is our right and our obligation to explore these issues in the zealous advocacy of our client. While some people have argued that this is improper, they can only do so if they are ignorant of the law. As attorneys and advocates, we are charged with the responsibility to investigate and discover any information which may assist our client's interests of presenting all relevant evidence regarding this event. No one would want, or accept, less if they were the client -- nor should they expect less.

Trayvon Martin’s school records are protected, and they should not become part of the public record. We will not post them on our website. If any detail of the school records should be considered relevant in the course of a Self-Defense Immunity Hearing, only the parts deemed relevant to the case will be entered into evidence.

A number of parties have expressed concern that we will use information found in the school records to “demonize” Trayvon Martin. The Zimmerman defense has no intention to demonize Trayvon Martin. While we believe that George Zimmerman has been unjustly demonized as a racist and a murderer by those who saw benefit in doing so, nothing would justify a reciprocal attack on the character and memory of Trayvon Martin.

We also recognize that the memory of Trayvon Martin has become important to the conversation about the state of race relations in America. While the accusations of racially-motivated violence in the Zimmerman case are absolutely false, we know that racially-motivated mistreatment in the criminal justice system is still a serious problem. Further, even though the memory of Trayvon Martin has been misapplied to represent such racially-motivated mistreatment, we welcome the opportunity it has provided to have a candid conversation about race relations in America -- as long as that conversation does not interfere with the proper application of justice for George.

As we approach a Self-Defense Immunity Hearing and/or a jury trial, there will be necessary scrutiny of Trayvon Martin. As it is true for any person who undergoes such scrutiny, facts may come out that could be seen to show him in a less than favorable light. We do, for instance, have an interest in presenting Trayvon Martin accurately as he appeared on the night of February 26, 2012, and that will include challenging the several-years-old photo of Trayvon Martin as a boy wearing a red shirt -- the photo that has become the popular representation of him in the minds of the public at large. If the memory of Trayvon Martin is going to be a catalyst for a conversation about race relations in America, then we should have an honest conversation.

I disgree, O'Mara you're not playing with honest people in this case. Sometimes you have to lower your standards and play by their rules.

They are dirty and play dirty pool...releasing witness#9.....Georges school records...anything they could get their talons into in order to taint a jury and discredit George they've done.....Smack Down!

OMG, I can't believe you were online posting your filthy fantasies about people you don't know.
You sure sound like a racist and an azzhole calling Trayvon a dealer.

LMAO, the memory of Trayvon Martin has already been demonized in print media, on national TV and on scores of anonymous forums. George has also been demonized but of course George remains alive and physically no worse for the wear. Financially is a different story though it appears..

The recent shooting of Jordan Davis by Michael Dunn is a far better example of what ails the nation but in that case the police acted pronto and properly. As a result, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Spike Lee and the three New Black Panthers didn't take much interest and the national press barely even noticed the event. But in Sanford it was a different story, the police were lost for some reason and that indecision spilled over to the SAO.

What the ef were the SPD and SA18 hoping for by stonewalling, not responding to witnesses or the local media? Why did it take so long to make a decision on how to charge, or not charge George Zimmerman with "something?"

Didn't Morgenstern get fired , the spokesperson for the SPD, for not responding to the media.....and where was Bonaparte... he was shoving Chief Lee out in the front while standing behind the scene and not saying a word.

Chief Lee explained why there was no arrest and that an ongoing investigation takes time....George has civil rights. I believe this shows a reasonable doubt...if the lead investigator can't figure it out and there's a descripency among them after meeting over and over on a daily basis with all of the officers that looks like clear doubt. Lee was not going to charge George when it looks to be self defense , so over it goes to AG and to Wolfinger. Then we know what happened after that.

Maybe you're personally involved in this case and in that case you shouldn't be posting here.

But, since you are posting, this case got kinky in hour number one and then things went downhill. It's two stories Sally and Trayvon's story is real short.

George's on the other hand goes on and on and on. Where do wish to start? One million dollar bond? How about that press conference where George's lawyers dumped him and Hal Urich went for a half hour about George's distance from reality not to mention Seminole County. Then there was George's dad calling myfoxorlando and requesting Valerie Boie to spill his guts to. Then he went off on Obama. Add Joe Oliver, Robert Jr. Frankie T and finally secret agent man Markie Mark and you've a world class clustrfc going on that makes anything Crump said actually look sensible.

Trayvon had only just turned 17, maybe he was a wild child, a really skinny babyfaced one without any criminal record (yet).

The sighting-confrontation occurred just moments past 7PM on a Sunday evening and not even close to the witching hour. A little kid was out out walking his dog, Cutcher and her room mate were just beginning to get dinner ready.

It was much too early for a shooting don't you think?

The second Sharpton rallied into town Trayvon's story got longer and longer. I disagree with most of what you say. I didn't realize there was a specific time for shootings...when you are attacked that is the time to defend yourself.

We haven't heard from the defense but the time is coming.

FYI George never hired those 2 attorneys, that has been a rumor from day one. His father wanted them but George never did and he was naive in trying to call SAO to tell them they were never retained.
Nothing anyone that has been a supporter of George could ever compare to the Crumpany and their PR, all of their lies and the things they have twisted, stories they have made up.

Kudos for Rbt. Sr. to have the balls to go off on your pres. he should have kept his trap shut on a case that was a state and county concern, do you really want to go there?

We can start with Lester getting his ass kicked off...made for a good show or how about Gilbreath making a fool out of the state.

Sally, come to your senses OK? The case had become controversial way before Sharpton came to town. The local legal community was already paying attention and even commenting on the SPD digging themselves into another deep dark hole.

Gilbreath didn't make a fool out of himself, he stated right up front that he had no notes or reference materials and that he was simply one of three separate SAO 4 investigators. He should have sensed that O'Mara was trying to put the hat on him and declined to testify. He had no obligation to testify at a bond hearing.

You'll lose this argument O'Malley.
