I'd hate to do it only to have someone else make a better one than my under-developed image manipulation skills can produce.

Apparently he attacked the wrong man, and got instant justice.

I half expect the judge to do the state's closing argument herself.
 
2013-07-11 08:30:02 AM
Until he's dead? Maybe he will get shot dead while trying to walk home with some Skittles.
 
2013-07-11 08:30:34 AM
He's going to walk. Much as I don't want to see it, he's going to walk.

In all seriousness, the state of Florida may need to take this guy into protective custody when he walks. And sneak him off to some undisclosed location. Maybe fat camp.

I do. According to the laws of the state, he will be a free man when this is over, that is, he won't be in jail. Whether he'll be free in his mind is another matter.

I think if I were him, I'd get the HELL away from Florida as soon as possible.  Maybe even out of the country.

If Trayvon didn't kill anyone, then why did he go into hiding?

Defense doesn't do their closing arguments until tomorrow morning.  Bad subby.

I'm betting on the defense trying to draw things out as much as possible today so they don't have to present their closing argument until Friday morning.

If the jury gets this after lunch Friday, I am rescinding my bet.  I bet the over on a 2 hour deliberation, but if they get it Friday afternoon I don't want any part of that action.

That brings up an excellent point - get your predictions about the length of jury deliberations in now, people.

/an hour or less

I think that depends largely on the instructions.  If the state gets their way and lesser included charges go in (and I don't think they should, but Judge Peabrain will probably allow it), they'll have more to consider.  But if it's all-or-nothing on murder, I don't think the door on the jury deliberation room will even close before the come back out.

The judge told them yesterday that the prosecution will go this afternoon and the defense will go Friday morning.

So, good job, I guess?

I don't know about manslaughter.  But there is no way "aggravated assault" should be included as a lesser charge.  Because if the jury thinks he committed aggravated assault then he's guilty of at least manslaughter as well.  The only reason to have that included is to hope the jury decides that he's guilty of something and compromise on the lowest charge because they don't realize that would put him away for 25+ years.

Here's my problem: didn't Trayvon have a right to defend himself against a man who was following him with a gun?

A guy who was following him for no other reason than a false assumption that Trayvon was a criminal?

Zimmerman escalated the situation. He left his car to pursue on foot.

All Trayvon was trying to do was get some snacks and go to his Dads place.

kimwim: He's going to walk. Much as I don't want to see it, he's going to walk.


/Meh, depends on if the jury thinks the populace will riot if he is set free.  They don't really care if a black guy was innocent or not, or deserving of what he got, they just want to see zimmerman fry.  fark the facts or if he deserved it or not. Look at OJ, guilty as hell, and they still celebrated when they let him go.  They even admitted  they found him innocent but didn't want to cause riots.  Hell, most black people i know knew he was guilty as sin, but were happy to see a black guy get away with a crime.  fark the facts.

/My take? They don't have enough evidence to prove that it was murder, let alone manslaughter.  He's gonna walk. Riots, clubbins, korean shop owners shooting at looters. you know the drill.  Any excuse to rob burn and pillage.

No she didn't. Prosecution this morning, followed by the defense this afternoon. The prosecution then gets an hour rebuttal Friday morning.

Why don't you want to see it? Tgat is how the American justice system works. You have to find not guilty when the prosecutions whole case is repeating "these assholes" as many times as they can.

I couldn't believe it when they first said they were going for murder 2.  Manslaughter they might have been able to prove.

Mike_LowELL: If Trayvon didn't kill anyone, then why did he go into hiding?


Trayvon did go into hiding. He's 6 feet under the ground. I think that's a pretty good hiding spot, don't you?


Also, to  Dumbmitter:  "you're last"≠  "your last" (this will probably be fixed by the admins though.)

They just want to give the jury something to stick him with to save face and avoid riots.  If Zimmerman acted in self defense, that excludes murder, manslaughter and aggravated assault (talk about grasping at straws).  I guess their whole case was built upon throwing shiat against the wall and seeing if anything sticks, so they may as well ask the jury to do the same.

Woohoo!  It'a about time someone asked these questions.

The State should address this in rebuttal.
