George Zimmerman's Case Heads To The Jury

If you haven't been following this case with the brilliant, thorough, detailed, and legally awesome reporting by Andrew Branca at Legal Insurrection you need to do so immediately. This is especially so if you think you know anything or have any opinion regarding the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman shooting Incident.

The case is a definite warning of how what now seems like a justified defensive shooting can turn into a media and legal circus when it becomes politically expedient for some to make it so.

My opinion, based on viewing the evidence put forth by the state and the defense in this case is that Zimmerman should be acquitted and his actions were justifiable under the circumstances, and the prosecution should be sanctioned for its discovery games and unprofessional tricks during the case.

Now we wait to see what verdict the jury arrives at in the case, and may justice be done.

My opinion mirrors yours, except that I think the judge needs a judicial sanction slap to the head for her conduct the last few days as well.

I'd agree, quite a number of her calls are way beyond arbitrary and capricious and heading into la la land.

On the upside, the defense has a ridiculous number of reasons an appeal (which hopefully won't be needed here) should be granted for her numerous errors.
