I would have a lot more problems if I told my garbageman to f*ck off than my local police officer. They will stop taking crap they are not supposed to. I take care of my sanitation guys so they take things I would normally have to drive to the dump myself.

99.9% of drug dealers have guns. Where was Trayvon's gun? He should have brought his with him right.

IIRC Trayvon referred a screwdriver, maybe he should have met Bernie Goetz.

George Zimmerman's Mother Marks the Day That 'Justice System Failed Us'

http://abcnews.go.com/US/george-zimm...ry?id=18932266

By LAUREN EFFRON (@LEffron831)
April 11, 2013
On the one-year anniversary of George Zimmerman's arrest in the Trayvon Martin killing, his mother posted a letter today to thank supporters and ask for their prayers for her son while bashing his critics and the media for perpetuating a "false narrative."

Her son, a neighborhood watch captain in Sanford, Fla., who said he shot the unarmed Florida teen, was charged with second-degree murder and taken into custody April 11, 2012. He has denied the charges, claiming self-defense.

Gladys Zimmerman's two-page letter was posted online and tweeted out by George Zimmerman's brother, Robert Zimmerman Jr., who has been a family spokesman.

"April 11 2012 will be forever remembered by the Zimmerman family as the day the justice system failed us as Americans, and as a consequence an innocent man was arrested for a crime he did not commit, solely to placate the masses," Zimmerman wrote in her letter.

Little evidence, Zimmerman says, has been available to the public since her son's arrest and she accused the Martin family's defense lawyer, Benjamin Crump, of "confusing the public and manipulating perception" in order to sway public opinion.

"From the beginning, this case has been heavily publicized and a false narrative was developed surrounding a very real tragedy when there was little evidence available to the public," it continued.

Crump was unavailable to comment.

Martin family attorneys have said there was no justification for the shooting, while Zimmerman has claimed self-defense under the state's so-called "stand your ground" law.

The continuous news coverage of George Zimmerman's arrest and incarceration, when the media reported on every detail of his life inside the Seminole County Jail, was "particularly disheartening," Gladys Zimmerman said.

George Zimmerman, 28, a white Hispanic neighborhood watch captain, shot and killed Martin, who was 17 and black, Feb. 26, 2012, after following the teenager for several minutes through a neighborhood. The case garnered wide national attention, sparking a media frenzy fueled by racial tensions.

Gladys Zimmerman ended her letter by thanking any supporters who "did not abandon" her son and promising that "the upcoming trial will not disappoint you."

George Zimmerman's murder trial begins June 10.
There are about 20 different Zimmerman Defense funds. Which one do I donate to.

Hey man, defense costs are NO JOKE. Plus, even if you win at trial it isn't like you get money back from the state.

They could literally accuse you of something you had NOTHING to do with. You go out and spend $50,000 on a lawyer through trial and win. Guess what, sucks to be you...and you're supposed to just be glad you aren't in jail.

America!

The correct strategy is not to fight the state if you have proof of your innocence.
Lose and go to jail. Then fight and win, and sue the DA's office. Get your money back, plus some, and get the crook DA fired.

This seems like a terrible strategy. The trial court is the trier of fact. Normally you have to present your evidence at trial or it is deemed waived. Appeals are based on issues of law, not fact. You don't get to pull out evidence at the appeal stage and go "sike! I had this all along, pay up, bitches!"

Can we expect a fair trial in central Florida?

Police Sergeant Fired Over Trayvon Martin Shooting Targets

By Alyssa Newcomb

Apr 13, 2013 7:08pm

A Florida police sergeant was fired for allegedly bringing Trayvon Martin shooting targets he purchased on the Internet to a firearms training session.

Sgt. Ron King, who had been with the Cape Canaveral Port Authority since January 2011, was fired Thursday, authorities said.

On April 4, when two fellow cops discovered King intended to use the Trayvon Martin shooting targets in their weapons exercise, they told him "they didn't think it was appropriate," said John Walsh, CEO of the Cape Canaveral Port Authority. The next day, he said the officers informed the Port Authority Police Chief, who called in internal affairs.

Authorities declined to say whether any of the targets were used.

"We want to apologize to the community and the family of Trayvon Martin and don't feel that this is tolerable or acceptable in any level. It's something that we'd never want the Port Authority to be involved in and we truly apologize to the families for the pain that they even had to hear about something like this and had to relive their son's death again," Walsh said.

ABC News' attempts to reach King for comment were unsuccessful.

The incident comes two months before the scheduled start of the second-degree murder trial of George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch captain who told police he followed Martin because the teen was acting suspiciously. Zimmerman later told police he shot Martin in self-defense after the 17-year-old punched him in the face, knocked him down and began slamming his head into the pavement. Martin was unarmed.

When it comes to trial court, I realized long ago it's the prosecutors who we are to be scared of.
