    With the "edited 911 tape" being previously released, and all the controversy it caused, I say the whole case will be dropped.

    :cool:

    I didn't link to many sources that still ran with the "innocent skittles lad" angle. Yellow journalism, it's what's for supper.

    Thanks, good info. Perusing the DU this morning, it looks like they have just the opposite opinion...... a guaranteed conviction! :supergrin:

    Sadly, they may be right and I may have jumped to a conlcusion that would be true in KY, but not Florida.

    It looks like, in a Florida state prosecution, you only have an absolute right to a grand jury for a capital crime, so something like a manslaughter charge would not require it.

    They MUST bring Zimmerman to trial. If not, there will be riots.

    They MUST start the trial quickly or there will be riots.

    If it goes to a trial, there MUST be a conviction or there will be riots.

    If there is a conviction, there MUST be a long prison sentence or there will be riots.

    And with all the crap by the MSM it will be difficult to find a jury that will be fair.

    Apr 29...the 20 yr anniversary of the '92 Rodney King riots in L.A. A riot brought about by blacks who didn't like the findings of the jury.

    I think they are going to charge him directly. The grand jury would be used as a fig leaf for not charging him.

    My prediction is a second degree murder charge and then the jury will convict him of manslaughter.

    What this whole thing is about, is to send America a message: "Don't fight back against rioters or 'the legal system' will hamstring you".

    Like all 'products' of the left, it was badly done and coming a cropper .....

    I agree. I don't think the prosecutor in Fla needs a grand jury to indict unless it will be a capital case, but I could be wrong.

    Let me start off by saying that no one wants a riot or riots. On the other hand we will not be intimidated by the threats of a riot (or should not be). From what I am hearing, the elected officials are actually thinking about attempting to convict an innocent person because they are AFRAID not to. A lot of politicians are AFRAID of the consequences. Since when did we Americans give in to fear?

    The only thing politicians are afraid of is not getting reelected. They couldn't care less about this case.

    Probably around the time we started frisking our grandmothers and teenage daughters in airports.

    You say "we Americans" as if this phrase has any meaning in 2012, as if we are more than a tax farm managed by sociopaths.

    The notion is quaint, and certainly appealing, but does not match up with even a casual observation of our actual surroundings.
