    The appeals court agreed with Zimmerman's attorneys that they weren't going to get a fair trial. YAY! Smackdown for the jerk.

    Appeals court: Judge in Trayvon Martin case must step down
    By the CNN Wire Staff
    updated 6:53 PM EDT, Wed August 29, 2012


    From the article:

    The court agreed with Zimmerman's attorneys that Lester "made gratuitous, disparaging remarks about Mr. Zimmerman's character; advocated for Mr. Zimmerman to be prosecuted for additional crimes; offered a personal opinion about he evidence for the prosecution; continued to hold over Mr. Zimmerman's head the threat of future contempt proceedings, and ultimately set a bond at $1,000,000."

    The appeals court also agreed that Lester's remarks "created reasonable fear in Mr. Zimmerman that the court is biased against him, and, as a result of this prejudice cannot receive a fair and impartial trial or hearing by the trial court."

    That malicious c*** Angela Corey has been trying to get Zimmerman's medical records. And, of course, she'll share it all with the media, regardless of relevancy. Want to know if Zimmerman ever had an STD? The old judge agreed to review the records for relevancy. I guess we'll never know if the old judge considered STDs to be relevant to George Zimmerman's self-defense case against that Afro Animal.

    The old judge seemed to have no objection to Angela Corey trying to taint the jury pool with inflammatory and irrelevant public disclosures, as well as downright illegal violations of Zimmerman's privacy.

    They released that photo only to gain sympathy for Zimmerman.

    well, maybe because it's intended to sway the jury pool?

    and it's irrelvant in any event... there was no reason to follow the kid and threaten him. the fact that he may or may not have been punched (deservedly) in the face doesn't justify him killing an unarmed kid.

    for all you know, he fell on his face running after his prey.

    Was releasing Martin's picture as a young, innocent looking kid meant to sway the jury pool?

    Regarding the rest of your rant, you weren't there, so you know squat.

    They released the photo because it is part of reciprocity. The prosecution gets their evidence, and the defense gets to use their evidence too. Liberals just don't want the defense to use any evidence. Releasing the photo of Trayvon Martin when he was 12 years old wasn't evidence. It was a lie.
