    This news account stated there won't an announcment on what charges until around 6:00 PM eastern time.

    You know he will be found guilty even if no evidence was ever brought before the jury.

    If they offer him a plea bargin to save the expense of a trial, it could be an even lesser charge.

    Rush Limbaugh said today, he has no doubt this has been pushed by the White House to further Obama's agenda. Wonder how well that statement will go over in the days to come????

    A side note,

    What happen to that stupid "Spike Lee" (or something like that name) who post incorrect address of George Zimmerman over internet?

    I really like to see him be accountable for his stupid, irresponsible act.

    Second degree murder might work out better for Zimmerman. If Florida requires a unanimous juey for conviction all he needs is one juror unwilling to vote guilty. One out of twelve for non-guilty is plausible.

    was there a doubt that charges would be filed? All the black racist people and their leaders would have caused a riot and besides our idiot President is going to use this to his advantage. The loser is Zimmerman and for what? A HOODIE GANGSTER WHO LOOKS LIKE OBAMA?

    If there was one juror who voted not guilty they would call it a mistrial. This whole case is nothing but a political diamond mine for Obama and the black racist movement!!

    There are some politics behind the scenes going on...

    It comes as no surprise to me that Zimmerman was charged. Martin's family is on record stating that it is not their goal to convict Zimmerman. They just want him arrested.

    Why would they want an arrest more than a conviction?

    Because under the Florida Stand your Ground law, a civil suit cannot be filed UNLESS without the arrest of the potential defendant. Zimmerman could not be sued by Martin's family without him being arrested.

    Why would the special prosecutor not take the Zimmerman/Martin case to a grand jury? Because of the fear that the grand jury may return a "no true bill" finding, meaning no law had been broken. This would have precluded the arrest.

    It is my opinion that Zimmerman is now a pawn to politics, with the special prosecutor trying to prevent full on riots while at the same time throwing Martin's family a bone with Zimmerman's arrest.

    In other words, no justice for Zimmerman, since his rights are not on the table for consideration, while the Martin family seeks money, a theme they've already pursued by protecting the intellectual assets of some slogans for use on t-shirts, etc.

    This whole case has become one big farce.

    Atleast its beginning to show how the real racist man expresse himself. Very uneducated,un ethical, immoral and just plain stupid. They refuse to come out of a shell and get educated and act like humans. There is only so much they can learn and the rest are not able to grasp anything reasonable. Their is exceptions of some but they ust the others to favor their own adjunda.

    They wanted justice. They wanted a trial where the truth, facts, and evidence can be heard. The States Attorneys Office must have some pretty credible evidence, and witnesses to bring the top charges. I can see why it took so long to finish their very thorough investigation. They obviously have enough evidence to arrest, and charge Zimmerman with second degree murder, and there was no need for a Grand Jury.

    I would not imagine many of you seen the question, and answer part of the news conference today? Maybe not even the conference itself. The Special Prosecutor stated that their job is to uphold the law and protect the rights of all involved. Politics, and outside pressure had nothing to do with this arrest. They have many cases where there is not an immediate arrest, due to their laws, but after a thorough investigation of the facts and evidence, they feel charges will be upheld. Therefore an arrest is made at a later date. From what it sounds the lead homicide investigator, and some of the police wanted charges filed that night, but the State Prosecutor PROHIBITED them from doing so.

    Florida law seems to me, to be a little F'ed up.

    So now we will be able to watch another media circus, made for entertainment trial, that may have the prelude of a White Bronco chase, with helicopter and all.

    It's going to be very hard choosing a fair jury who has not been bombarded with all the false reporting.

    Just read a report on newsmax.com saying the prosecution has a rocky road ahead of them trying to prove Zimmerman intentionally killed little tyrone. His lawyer could technically have the charges dismissed at the preliminary hearing. Even so, if this did happen the feds would try to hold him on some baloney charge. If they find him innocent of any felonies, the natives will go on the war path burning, and don't forget looting.
