killing Trayvon - Page 242

post #3616 of 6250
Dershowitz is supposedly one of the foremost appelate lawyers in the US.

If Z is found guilty of manslaughter, Dershowitz ought to step up to the plate and try to undo the wrongdoing ( as he has stated himself ), by getting involved in the appeal.

Let's see if it happens. The Dersh "helped" OJ and Claus Von Bulow. So why not Z?

Oh man, I'm reading threads over on democraticunderground. I was never much one to buy into the "country's going to hell in a handbaskt" but after reading a couple threads there I'm ready to jump on that bandwagon. Those people are truly fucking moronic.

This was really egregious. This took place before the defense was finished calling its remaining witnesses. The Judge had no business inquiring if Z would testify until the defense indicated it was going to rest its case.

Sign up and tell them that if he's found guilty at least the store owners in Sanford who sell electronics and sneakers won't have to make any insurance claims. They should enjoy that.

Re: the manslaughter charge...dare I say that I could envision a jury full of women thinking that their job is to compromise rather than acquit someone who has not been proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

Not a lawyer, but just from a common sense sort of thing, why would the judge push so hard to get an answer from Zimmerman prior to the defense being ready to give that answer?

Is there any chance the prosecution was smart enough to plan this when they selected this jury?

That is beyond egregious... its effing ridiculousticastically egregious. She would not even allow counsel to get his objection in on the record. He obvi knows he is going to be told to STFU, but has to preserve the record.

The prosecution had this planned no matter the jury....no doubt about it.

I wouldn't go that far. I dnk the socioeconomics of the jury, nor their political persuasion, but I will tell you that I have had women surprise me on juries previously.... more often than men.

Funny I went and looked at both of those sites as I didn't know if they were still around or not.

Stupid ass co-worker just yelled down the hall

"WE SHOULD HAVE A VERDICT IN THE TRAYVON TRIAL THIS WEEK" and then snickered.

I yelled back "TRAYVON WAS ALREADY SENTENCED TO DEATH. NOT SURE WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT. GET TO WORK" and a couple of nervous laughs floated down the hall.

silence, you could almost hear the gears grinding in his head. Then:

"YOU KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT"

I yelled back "WHAT YOU JUST SAID REVEALS A LOT ABOUT YOU. NOW LET'S GET TO WORK BEFORE WE ALL GET FIRED"

silence.

This dude is going to be ecstatic if Zimmerman walks. It'll be like he got a free ice cream cone or something. Jackass.

I lol'd because I can imagine the co-worker is laughing on another message board about baiting his humorless liberal co-worker into saying something lame like that.

I also got a flash back to working in a cubicle and shuddered.

What do you mean by "impeach" in this situation?

They're going to hold a joint session of congress and remove Zimmerman from political office.

Be serious, Harvey.

It's not a joint session. The house impeaches, then the senate would try him.

I wish I could look back on working in a cube.
