Zimmerman to be charged with 2nd degree murder

LINK /

I'm surprised by this... maybe they are aiming high with the hopes of a less offense of manslaughter, or negligent homicide.

they either have more evidence than originally thought... or are caving to political pressure.

I didn't see where they sent lesser charges to the jury...wouldn't they have gone the GJ route if this was their plan?

If it's like Louisiana, then a jury can convict of lesser and included charges even if not presented.

They must have more evidence, because what was released to the media was pretty lacking.

....or they are caving to political pressure.

I don't believe anyone, Zimmerman included, disputes that Zimmerman killed Martin.

I have always wondered if the evidence wouldn't show Zimmerman was a distance away from the victim.

Yes it would if they don't have more evidence than what's been reported.

It's going to be difficult finding a jury and no way he's convicted based on the story we have so far.
