Aaron Walker has one of the best post Zimmerman articles on his legal issues going forward...

A must read.  Especially the Florida statute which Zimmerman might use to defend and get fees from the Martin family (in the event they sue him).  776.032 Immunity from criminal prosecution and civil action for justifiable use of force.—

George Zimmerman Acquitted! Not Guilty on all charges!

Great News!  Not Guilty
The coverage by Andrew Branca at Legal Insurrection was wonderful.  Thank you so much Andrew for just spot on reporting.  I am glad the jury saw this correctly.  

I understand that many will disagree with this. Trayvon Martin is dead and they want someone to blame.  But 17 year olds do things they shouldn't and unfortunately this series of events led to his death.  I am sure if George Zimmerman could do it again, he would have walked the other way.  Probably Trayvon Martin if given a second chance would not have done what he did.  

But as far as the criminal proceeding goes, this was the correct result.  

TOM:  #Zimmerman Not Guilty!


Update:
Democrats intend to stir the pot and use this to fire up their base.  It is not over for George Zimmerman...
Crump fired up this case and has already gotten a big settlement out of Zimmerman's HOA. For him it is about money.

Instapundit and Roger Simon at Pajamas Media had this...
ROGER SIMON: Obama Big Loser In Zimmerman Trial. “By injecting himself in a minor Florida criminal case by implying Martin could be his son, the president of the United States — a former law professor, of all things — disgraced himself and his office, made a mockery of our legal system and exacerbated racial tensions in our country, making them worse than they have been in years. This is the work of a reactionary, someone who consciously/unconsciously wants to push our nation back to the 1950s.” Have you noticed that there seems to be a lot of fifties-nostalgia among today’s left? Forward — to the past!Plus: “Of course, they aren’t the only ones. Almost everyone is a victim in in this case that should never have been tried. George Zimmerman will never live a normal life. The American public has been polarized with emotions stirred up for absolutely no reason. Racism is essentially manufactured, as if it were a commodity.” For some political organizations, it’s a necessity.And: “Congratulations to the jury for not acceding to this tremendous pressure.” Yes, they stood up to the organized pressure better than Chief Justice Roberts.Related: It’s the 50′s again Black Man Acquitted of Murder Powerful & Influential outraged!Posted at 10:48 am by Glenn Reynolds

Legal Insurrection: 5 of the 6 jurors thought Zimmerman was screaming for help on the 911 call.  The 6th was not sure.  
Aaron Walker:  Some really interesting stuff he found, including the possibility that if the Martins sue Zimmerman, Zimmerman can recover attorney fees and costs from them...

Angela Corey fires her department's information technology director for whistleblowing on her discovery abuses in the Zimmerman case... Update: Zimmerman Not Guilty!

Angela Corey: If you cross me I will crush your head...
[Ben Kruidbos's ] attorney Wesley White — who resigned from the State Attorney’s Office in December and is a critic of Corey — said the firing was aimed at sending a message to office employees “that if they feel like there is wrongdoing,” they should not disclose it or seek legal guidance from a private attorney.“If they do speak to an attorney, then they are dead,” he said. “The State Attorney’s Office will do whatever is necessary to not only terminate them, but destroy their reputations in the process.”

Update:
Legal Insurrection: Andrew Branca on Jury Verdict Watch, commentary on firing...
In a breaking development, the Special Prosecutor’s Office of Angela Corey has fired the IT specialist who blew the whistle on the prosecution’s concealment of evidence:
State Attorney Angela Corey fired her office’s information technology director Friday after he testified last month about being concerned prosecutors did not turn over information to George Zimmerman’s defense team in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
On the same day attorneys finished their closing arguments in that nationally watched trial, a state attorney investigator went to Ben Kruidbos’ home about 7:30 a.m. to hand-deliver a letter stating Kruidbos “can never again be trusted to step foot in this office.”
(WAJ adds) This has been a dirty prosecution in so many ways, so no one should be surprised that as soon as the jury went into deliberations the retaliation began.

Mark Steyn: In the Zimmerman Case Legal Absurdities Abound...

JUSTICE: “In a breaking development, the Special Prosecutor’s Office of Angela Corey has fired the IT specialist who blew the whistle on the prosecution’s concealment of evidence.” They told me if I voted for Mitt Romney, there’d be a war on whistleblowers. And they were right!

State v. George Zimmerman Day 7: Judge Nelson favors the prosecution over doing justice. Update: But another state witness supports Zimmerman!

Judge Nelson: She seems more concerned with her political future than ruling fairly on the law...
Andrew Branca at Legal Insurrection:
BDLR argued that when O’Mara asked Serino if he believed Zimmerman to be telling the truth, Serino responded that he did, that such a testament of a law enforcement officer of a defendant was inappropriate and must be struck. He “ambushed” the defense with a detailed motion the State’s office had presumably spent much of the night preparing, and Judge Nelson required the defense to evaluate and respond to the motion while standing in court. O’Mara did the best he could under the circumstances, but Nelson elected to side with the State. When the jury was brought into the courtroom she played the audio of that part of O’Mara’s cross, and instructed the jury that the evidence was struck and not to be considered by them.
As Andrew Branca notes, all this accomplished is having the Jury hear the statement again.  The other testimony was still the type that should lead to reasonable doubt, but there is the danger of the jury being swayed by the bias of Judge Nelson.  And there is also the danger of other pressures on the jury to throw George Zimmerman under the bus.  There are obviously people out there who would be willing to improperly contact jurors. That is a real danger.

Update:
Legal Insurrection/Branca's analysis of Day 7:  Judge still carrying water for the prosecution. Seems like George/defense did okay today, with a few points for the prosecution.
Legal Insurrection Day 8: Not surprisingly Judge Nelson gives the State what it wants...then the witness they call gives testimony favorable to Zimmerman.  Opps.  State damages its terrible case even more.  With the judge, prosecution and media against George Zimmerman, it is almost like this guy might be innocent...  Let's just pray the jury goes the right way.  
Testimony is George Zimmerman wanted to be a prosecutor...hmmm does that show a depraved heart?  Perhaps it does!
Legal Insurrection/Andrew Branca: State wins evidence battle, but loses testimony war...
Talk Left is reporting the State may rest today and it does not see a case (remember this is a left leaning blog).
Chris Matthews' Pauline Kael Moment...
Legal Insurrection: Day 8, Judge Nelson still favoring the prosecution...
Legal Insurrection Day 9:  State rests, biased Judge Nelson denies request for directed verdict and then makes the Defense start its case on a Friday at 5 p.m.!  O'Mara puts on Zimmerman's mom and uncle and leaves the jury with some compelling testimony to counteract Martin's mom.

CNN gives out George Zimmerman's driver's license and social security numbers...

The Lame Stream Media (this time CNN) puts Zimmerman's driver's license number and social security number on the air:
George Zimmerman is going to need Lifelock...
Right Scoop: Are you kidding me? 
Legal Insurrection: Day Six of the Zimmerman Trial (all you can say is wow given the police testimony).  If the Judge was doing her job she would dismiss this case when the State closes (based on what they have presented so far).

Update:
Legal Insurrection: Day Seven of the Zimmerman Trial

Separated at Birth: George Zimmerman and...?


George Zimmerman
after defending himself





Hey you have to break a few brown  white hispanic
eggs to make a Democrat Obama omlette

JUNE 27, 2013

“TRAIN WRECK” WITNESS: Rachel Jeantel made it sound like Travon Martin profiled George Zimmerman… or… what is a “creepy ass cracker”? Somebody ask Paula Deen.
But here’s the key: Obama and the Democrats would actually prefer an acquittal here. That’s because the whole point of the ginned-up Zimmerman affair was to inflame racial sentiment to boost black turnout in 2012. With any luck, they can turn an acquittal into another racial rallying cry, which will help in 2014. It’s not about Zimmerman; he’s just one of those eggs you have to break to make an Obama omelet.
UPDATE: Reader Bill Lux writes: “If their goal is prepping the battlefield then they might get their wish. The mainstream coverage of the trial is so abysmal that I don’t think casual observers realize what a farce this is and how weak the State’s case is (Andrew Branca’s tweeting has been indispensable). If there’s an acquittal, many people will be outraged because they’re so ill-informed.” That’s not by accident.

And remember George Zimmerman was a Latino Democrat and Obama supporter before all of this went down.  But when the opportunity presented itself, Team Obama and the Democrats had no problem throwing him under the bus.  It is what they do.

And for the best day to day coverage of this trial, you should be checking Legal Insurrection and guest commentator Andrew Branco.

Tommy Christopher is retarded.
