    From the Libtard NY Daily News:
    Drop George Zimmerman

    The 'Justus' Department is going to make sure GZ fries one way or another.

    After viewing the pictures that were recently released, I have ZERO idea why Angela Corey would have sought Murder Two charges against Zimmerman because she doesn't have a prayer of getting a conviction on them.

    To be quite blunt...the evidence now being released totally substantiates Zimmerman's statements given about what happened that night and paints Trayvon Martin not as the "innocent victim" he's been made out to be by much of the main stream media but as someone who responded to questions with fisticuffs.

    Mr. Dershowitz certainly has no official say, one way or the other.

    But what he's SAYING has merit in its own right.

    And even though Mr. Dershowitz has no official say, the LAW does and the Judge will.

    The special prosecutor might very well find herself on the wrong end of a judicial microscope in all of this if she doesn't make sure her conduct AS a prosecutor rises up to the level expected by the LAW. If she continues (as it appears so far that she's been doing) to worry more about the public reaction or what the press might say, she could end up being properly subject to sanction.

    Apparently from Newsbusters there's a report that Trayvon was involved in an underground fight club.

    As time goes on, the hastily constructed second-degree murder case against George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin is continuing to collapse as more evidence formerly known only by the prosecution is released to the public.

    The first is that Martin seems to have been less interested in running away from Zimmerman and more in bashing him, according to a witness interviewed by police within minutes of the shooting. But that's not all:

    Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit relates the discovery of video from Trayvon Martin’s YouTube account, removed at some point during the last month, that shows he was actually involved in some sort of underground “fight club.”

    This is really disturbing. The Prosecution surely knew this was all going to come out and make her look like a fool.

    This part kills me.

    Despite the prosecution’s awareness of the autopsy reports and eyewitness testimony, they included none of it in their affidavit against Zimmerman.

    He has an opinion based on what may or may not be facts.

    The Daily Caller lays out the time line from the tape. And according to those that can hear it, they are concluding that Zimmerman complied with the dispatchers request.

    All the new buzzwords like "stalking" Trayvon, "hunting" Trayvon are out there and there is no proof whatsoever that Zimmerman hunted Trayvon.

    Great wrap up at the DC:

    The point is this: With no witnesses stating that Zimmerman defied the dispatcher’s wishes and continued following Martin and no evidence to suggest he did, how did the idea that he pursued Martin after the dispatcher told him not to become a universally recognized, undisputed fact?



    And here's the transcript of the 911 call:

    From the call released by the Sanford Police:

    At 2:07, Zimmerman tells the dispatcher, “He’s running.”

    At 2:09, you can hear a car door open and an alarm begins that is undoubtedly the “door open, keys in ignition” warning on Zimmerman’s truck.

    At 2:13, you can clearly hear the car door slamming shut, and the alarm stops.

    At 2:17, Zimmerman’s voice wobbles and he starts breathing heavily into the phone, indicating that he has started running.

    At 2:22, without any prompting other than the aforementioned noises and breathing, the dispatcher asks “Are you following him?” to which Zimmerman responds, “Yeah.”

    At 2:26, the dispatcher says, “Okay, we don’t need you to do that,” to which Zimmerman responds, “Okay.”

    Zimmerman proceeds to give the dispatcher his name. Then he says, “He ran.”

    Zimmerman can still be heard breathing into the phone until about 2:39, at which point the heavy breathing stops entirely, a mere 13 seconds after the dispatcher asked him to stop following. A very calm and collected Zimmerman then proceeds to give the dispatcher his own information, directions and a description of his location for another 1 minute and 33 seconds.

    Does a Florida prosecutor actually have any ethical or legal responsibility to include potentially exculpatory facts in an affidavit? Dershowitz goes so far as to call the affidavit criminal and perjurious (Dershowitz: Prosecutor in Trayvon Martin case overreached with murder charge | Fox News). I rather doubt that, since I can't imagine why a non-insane prosecutor would so publicly and clearly commit perjury (and anyway so far as I know omissions rather than false statements aren't perjury).
