See the Zimmerman case was all about Politics not about guilt or innocent

see according to Bill Lee the former police chief the case only got brought to trial to placate politicians rather than having enough evidence to actually charge Zimmerman, I wonder when he's found innocent if he'll be able to sue the city for violating his rights and bringing the case to trial for political reasons and not for reasons of guilt or innocence?

Also read the comments section for a good idea of how out of touch some people are with the reality of the case.

Yeah, any time an unarmed kid gets shot by a stalker, the shoulder shrug is the best legal response.

Lets not pretend Martin was some 11 year old kid, he was 17 years old. secondly, no evidence existed to go against Zimmerman which explains why he wasn't charged.

Which is why this case has blown up in the prosecutions face thus far during trial. The only way the prosecution can save face is if the Jury doesn't want to be seen as racist and vote guilty. Other wise this was a complete and utter waste of everyone's time.

Also you need to have some evidence to support the charges, which this case totally and utterly lacks, at most they should have charged him with Manslaughter, even that would have been a major stretch in this case.

Dead body with a bullet wound.

Guy with a gun.

No evidence. Nothing the police should be interested in. No reason courts should be involved. No evidence. (insert joke about a chameleon)

Bill Lee, who testified Monday in Zimmerman's second-degree murder trial, told CNN's George Howell in an exclusive interview that he felt pressure from city officials to arrest Zimmerman to placate the public rather than as a matter of justice.

"It was (relayed) to me that they just wanted an arrest. They didn't care if it got dismissed later," he said. "You don't do that."


figures. remember when this board was up in arms mad that zimmerman wasnt arrested or charged right away? they were part of this public lynch mob tyranny,

I still can't believe Zimmerman wasn't even detained until the cops could figure out what happened. It's a complete outrage, if I was a black man in America I would be mad as ****.

Do you really want this to happen? Simply let the cops just arrest people until they figure out what happened?

I honestly don't think it was due to Trayvon's race, not entirely anyway; the Florida statutes are worded in such a way that they're kind of supposed to do the opposite of what you said here
