    So far Zimmerman's attorney is taking the prosecution team to school. He is making their case look mighty weak. Back to the hearing,,,,,,

    $150k bail with GPS and electronic monitoring.

    Also if what I heard is what the prosecution is going with, doubtful the defense will even need to present a case.

    Very reasonable, and the judge looks to be fair and deciding on law instead of emotion.
    Exactly. It will all boil down to who the jurors are and how afraid the court is of the rioting, looting and burning if he goes free.
     
  5. And no firearms too (which isn't surprising).

    Exactly, the jurors are key. It was refreshing to see a judge that could see through the media's smoke screen. However, lets never forget the OJ trial.

    The lead investigator blew the case today. The basis of the 2nd degree murder charge was that Zimmerman started the fight. Under oath today, the investigator said he had no evidence that Zimmerman started the fight...or that Zimmerman didn't turn and go back to his car.

    There is no probable cause to go to trial with. This should be thrown out of court at the preliminary exam stage.

    There has never been anything presented by the State that would justify a second degree murder charge. Case should have been thrown out. I assume possibly they could have made a manslaughter charge with sufficient probable cause to proceed, but that isn't what they charged.
     
  11. My amazement at the inadequacy of the PC affidavit has shifted to disbelief following today's testimony of the lead investigator at the bond hearing. My initial impression that the PC was a collaboration between Walt Disney and Gumby appears to have been confirmed.

    It's funny to me how much browner the guy looked in the court room than in the media photos. This should never have been about race.

    A supplementary view on your statement: There is no probable cause to go to trial with THE MURDER TWO CHARGE. A manslaughter verdict may be possible if the prosecution can get its act in shape.

    I believe the Murder Two charge was thrown into the mix in the prosecution hope to get a Voluntary Manslaughter verdict as a compromise verdict from a segmented jury.

    The MSM's template in this affair is ALL about race and cultivating white guilt. Obama's upcoming election must be a referendum on racism in America, in some way or another. Clearly, Obama can't run on his record, and his pals in the MSM are working hard to shift the focus to something more favorable for him. If white people hadn't passed pro-gun and SYG laws, then wilding Hispanics like Zim wouldn't have been able to stalk and murder innocent black children with evil guns. :upeyes:

    Then that's unethical at the very least, and criminal at the worst. The prosecution is supposed to charge what they can prove, not overcharge and bully the defendant into a plea or manipulate the jury into a lesser conviction.

    That the prosecutor didn't go with Manslaughter tells me they couldn't even prove that, and between their performance today and the surfacing of Zimmerman's photo, there's a lot to support the opinion that this is all politically motivated.

    Isn't that a fundamental aspect of reality?; the 93% of prosecuting attorneys that react to political overtones of their cases will give them ALL a bad reputation!

    I am exaggerating, of course ... or am I?

    If he can get the judge's approval to at least leave the county (and maybe even the state), he should be okay; sympathetic people with money will probably be interested in his case, now that it is so prominent. It will be interesting to see if those who want to harm him can find a path to hacking into his GPS monitering setup.

    Unethical, criminal and stupid. The prosecutorial trifecta, all likely driven by trying to placate the mob.
