I don't see how the state can prove murder. If Florida allows for a guilty verdict for manslaughter as a lesser included offense of the Murder 2 charge, I could see a guilty of manslaughter verdict.

Juries are unpredictable beasts. Having an all female jury is also unique, but I'm not sure how that will play into the final verdict.

Just googled, apparently they are against GZ. I am surprised. I doubt the Black Panthers would be against him if GZ was black and TM was a white hispanic.

I think it's interesting that we've gone five pages without the stand your ground law being mentioned.

ETA: 4-5 kids of African descent here in Columbia jumped a kid leaving a bar area last year. It turned out to be gang initiation, they had to beat up a white guy. Almost killed him. Carter Strange was the victim's name. Look it up, I'm sure you never heard about this one.

Just looked this up. The kid wasn't leaving a bar. He was jogging home from a friend's house. Not that it makes a difference...

Unfortunately, the actual law is not the major draw with the case.

Thought it went without saying, but there may not have been a crime committed at all in this incident. Good point.

Probably because Zimmerman waived his right to a stand your ground pretrial immunity hearing and is instead arguing self defense.

He will be found guilty and life will move on as usual.

Honest question, why do you not believe GZ story?


I don't necessarily not believe his story, I just don't believe his life was in danger.

He might have felt it was, but it wasn't.

Fair enough. But isn't that enough?

ETA: If TM actually bashed his head into the sidewalk, he could have easily killed him.

I believe it'll be a hung jury. I also believe he's innocent. No priors for GZ and he hunts this kid down and murders him in cold blood? he got jumped by a thug and he fought back.

You seem fixated on this and I'm not really sure why.

It's me calling out the OT, who anytime any man is ever even accused of hitting a woman, immediately label him a pussy arse thug POS.......... I guess the exception is if the man has also shot and killed an unarmed teenage kid.

Then, dude gets a pass.

1. Defense waived their right to a pre-trial immunity hearing under the stand your ground law and are proceeding with a standard self defense case.

2. Stand your ground is just a portion of self defense that states if a person is attacked, they are not required to retreat and can meet force with force. The attacked person, just like in any other self defense situation, may use deadly force if they reasonably believe it is necessary to prevent death or great bodily harm.

No it isn't. He has to prove that he felt it was and that it was reasonable for him to feel that way.

My same friend who is an adamant GZ hater, and a flaming liberal, was a staunch defender of Casey Anthony's innocence for some fricking reason.
