I think that the state of FL when they embarked on their malicious prosecution
He killed someone. George claimed self-defense. Enough material facts existed to press charges against him. There was a genuine dispute over whether the killing was in self-defense. A trial ensued. He had his day in court and won. Not malicious prosecution
I understand that he's merely sticking up for his brother, but I hate it when folks improperly use legal terms.
I would remind the Department of Justice that a verdict has been reached in this case
I would like to remind Robert Zimmerman of the separate sovereigns doctrine. Remember Rodney King? The officers who beat him up were found innocent in state court but were retried and found guilty in federal court.
That said, I seriously doubt that the DOJ will bring an action against Zimmerman. All such talk seems to be a bunch of sabre-rattling and nothing more.
Here's an excerpt from Robert Zimmerman's interview with Piers Morgan:
- On Trayvon Martin being "armed" although he was only carrying Skittles and an iced tea:
"No, he was armed with the sidewalk. He was armed with his nose-breaking fists and he was armed with whatever aggression he brought to that moment. You know bag of Skittles or bag of M&M's or bag of whatever you want."
