Subject: RE: The Real George Zimmerman Story--Interesting
It appears highly unlikely that Zimmermann gets convicted of second degree murder. That charge is an overreach, cooked up for political purposes to quell the public furor, created by an irresponsible media that literally sold this as an unprovoked, race-based hate crime. Every shred of evidence coming out has been supporting Zimmermann's contention that he shot in self-defense - the partial eye witness account, Zimmermann's injuries, etc.
Now it seems that the special prosecutor on the case failed to reveal the photograph of Zimmermann's bloodied head in her affidavit supporting the charges. This was a shirking of her responsibility as prosecutor and an illegal act. Her apparently politically tainted approach to this case is troubling.
Unless the prosecution has some bombshell up their sleeve, they do not have the makings of a murder conviction. To whip the public into a frenzy and expectation is setting the stage for problems down the road.
That does not diminish the tragedy of a kid losing his life. It is an awful, tragic event that never should have happened. Legally speaking, however, the evidence coming out suggests that Zimmermann should not, and will not, be convicted of murder. We'll see what comes out at the trial, but I predict an acquittal.
