It was mid-afternoon when I received the phone call.  Would I be interested in participating on a panel discussing the Zimmerman case and self-defense law in general, to be hosted on KPCC, the Los Angeles area National Public Radio station?  Meh, why not, I told them.  And there I was, on…

Well, that’s it. George Zimmerman has his legal victory. Late in the night on Saturday, July 13, 2013, George officially survived a brutal and malicious legal assault backed by the full power of a State government intent on hanging a life sentence on an innocent man on the sole basis of emotional…

And it begins. Juror B37 gave an interview to CNN in which she said it was George Zimmerman screaming for help: [some video problems on CNN’s side with embeds but appears to be working now] Meanwhile, the prosecutors are on the TV circuit defending themselves, and calling Zimmerman a murderer: How would Florida State…

The great thing about having your own blog is that you get to quote yourself. The title is a quote from my interview this morning with Lee Rayburn of WHCU 870 AM in Ithaca.

Now that George Zimmerman has been acquitted in a court of law, it’s reasonable to review how the case progressed. Breitbart provided a useful timeline. Here’s the third item: March 13, 2012 – NBC’s Al Sharpton Uses MSNBC Platform to Stoke Phony Racial Narrative Joel Pollak, Breitbart editor, elaborated: The next day, March 12,…

A California TV station and NTSB intern are facing more fallout today, after an embarrassing mistake led a KTVU anchor to read on-air the (obviously) fake pilot names of Asiana Flight 214.  That plane crash landed on a San Francisco runway on July 6th, killing three and injuring over 180 passengers. We…

Max Baucus, as noted here, was one of the senate’s biggest proponents of ObamaCare. But shortly after he called the implementation of ObamaCare a “train wreck” in April, he decided not to seek re-election. (Baucus apparently believes that ObamaCare’s biggest failing is incompetence, not impossibility. I rather think that both are true,…

Forgotten in the publicity surrounding the jury verdict in the case against George Zimmerman is that a perjury charge against his wife, Shellie Zimmerman, remains active. According to the State Court docket, the case is scheduled for trial August 21.  I have calls in to the prosecutors and defense counsel to confirm this. The…

The “what if Trayvon were white” logical fallacy

Posted by
7/15/2013 at 10:03am
One of the most popular liberal reactions to the finding that George Zimmerman was not guilty is to posit the question of how the case would have been treated differently if Trayvon Martin were white. The question always is answered by the author that the shooting of a white person by a…

I’ll be brief. I can’t add much to what I’ve written the past 17 months about the facts, evidence, law, witnesses, lawyers, judges, politics, and media. So here you go: Despite the heated demands of powerful societal forces and the State, six women just said No, and thereby did justice. Amen.

In early April 2012, Special Prosecutor Angela Corey decided not to take the George Zimmerman case to a Grand Jury, opting for the filing of a Criminal Information which then was presented along with an Affidavit of Probable Cause.  The Court found probable cause for the charges. It turned out, once pre-trial discovery…

Sometimes people should just avoid the urge to comment on Facebook, at least, not without an attorney present. A Florida man was arrested by the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office after commenting on the department’s “Fugitive of the Day” Facebook post in which he was the featured fugitive, in reference to a robbery. …

I watched the verdict come while on a 5-hour flight delay at O’Hare last night.  Had there not been a delay, I would have missed it.  Funny how things work. What amazed me is that prior to the verdict, I heard numerous people talking openly about the case.  It was pretty obvious…
