What jury? You do realize that the judge first will have to approve the case to go to trial (watch my cousin vinny to refresh your memory.) If there insufficient evidence on the prosecution's side, there IS NO TRIAL, THERE IS NO JURY.
You're just disconnected. If you don't get it by now, that's on you. I've put it in the simplest terms possible for you.

(CBS) ORLANDO, Fla. - A year before George Zimmerman shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin to death, he stood before a City Hall community forum and told the then-mayor elect that Sanford cops are lazy. He came to this conclusion from ride-alongs with the Sanford police, reports The Miami Herald.


"And what I saw was disgusting," Zimmerman said, according to a recording of the January 2011 meeting. "The officer showed me his favorite hiding spots for taking naps, explained to me that he doesn't carry a long gun in his vehicle because, in his words, 'anything that requires a long gun requires a lot of paperwork and you're going to find me as far away from it,'" the Herald reported Zimmerman as saying.


The recording raises new questions in the Trayvon Martin killing about whether Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, may have received preferential treatment during the night of the Feb. 26 shooting because of his familiarity with the police department. Sanford police took a national beating over how they handled Zimmerman's arrest, being widely condemned for letting him go home after initial questioning.

Although Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee denied knowing Zimmerman at the time and said Zimmerman had no relationship with the department, city records show emails exchanged between the two when the neighborhood watch volunteer wrote to praise the department's volunteer program coordinator, the Herald reported.

The State Attorney prosecuting the case released a video last week of Zimmerman freely walking about the police station the night of the shooting, unescorted.

"What are the relationships?," said attorney for the Martin family Natalie Jackson to The Miami Herald. "We have always had a concern about the relationships."

Zimmerman sent in his application for the ride-alongs in March 2010, according to city records. Zimmerman said he wanted to go on the ride-alongs to "solidify my interest in a career in law enforcement." Sanford Police said they have no records showing who Zimmerman rode with.

Interim Police Chief Richard Myers said in a statement Wednesday it would be "inappropriate" to speculate or come to conclusions about Zimmerman's comments at the forum.

"Neither the city manager nor the interim police chief were with the City of Sanford at the time the recording was made, and neither were here during the tenure of the former chief,'' Myers said, according to the newspaper. "As a police chief I embrace the notion that transparency helps build public trust, but in this case, the need to preserve the sanctity of a criminal prosecution, for both the prosecutor and the defense, requires us to eschew making any comments that could taint the process."

Zimmerman, who claims he shot Martin in self-defense, pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder and is in hiding.

I think the article is simply implying that the department responsible for handling the matter may have showed poor judgement, bias and/or preferential treatment to Zimmerman because of their past relationship(s). As a result, it raises suspicious as to what may have been left out or not discovered. It doesn't help Zimmerman's public image but it certainly cannot be used against him in court. What implications it has on the department itself is another question.

Zimmerman basically trashed the cops, and these people think they have a "relationship?"

That's what I've said all along.

I enjoyed watching the video of Zimemrman wandering around the police building alone. He had the run of the place. Sounds like a real adversarial relationship he has with the PD.

I don't see why a person who hasn't committed a crime should be held under lock and key

Zimmerman accuses police of being lazy = liberals claiming he was an insane vigilante

The only thing more pathetic is this "trayvon martin day".... put an end to bullying and racism by promoting a bully who was made national news only when the media racially sensationalized his story... what a joke.

I truly find it unbelievable that some in this thread can still defend this POS. The kid was a crummy human being who mocked women, threw around racial slangs, dealt drugs, likely broke into homes (given his burglary tool kit)... Zimmerman, on the other hand, bashed cops for being lazy and went after them when they were clearly guilty of abusing their powers... And yet, Zimmerman is the villain and Martin the hero... simply because of the color of this crummy human being's skin..

Just AMAZZZZZES me (and honestly pisses me off) that logic and evidence is cast aside in favor of racial bullsh*t...


And for the record, THIS VERY BEHAVIOR (trayvon day) and the media are EXACTLY the cause of racial tension in this country. You think a kid growing up recognizes differences in skin color and treats one kid differently than another as a result? Absolutely not. Racism is engrained in the skulls of children through cr@p like this and piss poor parents.

It really doesn't matter if he was drinking buddies with the police and his dad was the chief.

There is NO evidence that supports anything against his self defense claim.
Go read the SYG law. Then go learn about how the judicial system works.
Keep your opinions and emotion out of it.

Because racist f*cktards want "justice".... or, if we're being honest, they want revenge because a POS black kid was shot in self defense after he jumped a stand-up guy.

Remember... logic < racism for these idiots.

Just look at Phrozen's stance on this one.. it's mind boggling that he can still stand by Trayvon... and he will continue to even if a video came out showing that Martin jumped him from behind yelling "take this n*gg@"

You're not really one to be lecturing us about racial tension unless you're citing yourself as an example. And excellent job pointing this back to the liberals and the media. Like we don't already hear that in every other thread you post.
