GUEST,josepp BS: George Zimmerman to be Charged (Trayvon Martin (277* d) RE: BS: Zimmerman to be Charged 14 Apr 12

The problem for Zimmerman is that he claims self-defense but that's going to be hard to prove when the last 40 seconds of Martin's life are on tape and he was clearly not attacking Zimmerman, he was screaming for help. He may have lunged at Zimmerman just before being shot but that doesn't constitute an attack. He might have only wanted to knock him down and run, he may have be trying to run but had to get past Zimmerman to do it. We don't know.

I don't see a self-defense plea sticking. I see him being found guilty by a reasonable jury. That is Zimmerman's only hope--he gets a jury full of shitheads which are quite common in this country. Otherwise he will be found guilty.
