DERSHOWITZ BLASTS ZIMMERMAN PROSECUTION: 'NOT ONLY IMMORAL, BUT STUPID'

With ABC News’ release of the George Zimmerman photo showing blood flowing freely from his head, the question becomes whether Angela Corey, the prosecutor in the case, had access to the photo before charging Zimmerman with second-degree murder.

The arrest affidavit did not mention the photograph , or the bleeding, gashes, and bruises on Zimmermans’ head. Professor Alan Dershowitz of Harvard Law School stated upon release of the arrest affidavit that it was “ so thin that it won’t make it past a judge on a second degree murder charge … everything in the affidavit is completely consistent with a defense of self-defense .”

After the release of the photo, however, Dershowitz went much further, telling Breitbart News that if the prosecutors did have the photo and didn’t mention it in the affidavit, that would constitute a “ grave ethical violation ,” since affidavits are supposed to contain “all relevant information.”

Dershowitz continued, “An affidavit that willfully misstates undisputed evidence known to the prosecution is not only unethical but borders on perjury because an affiant swears to tell not only the truth, but the whole truth, and suppressing an important part of the whole truth is a lie."

it's an election year and regardless if Zimmerman did or did not, they're going to roast him.

And by the logic of some, anyone who disagrees with Dershowitz is antisemitic.

Better yet; Angela Corey had access to all medical records for Zimmerman and undertaker reports for Treyvon in the case, including those of the EMS first responders to the situation, the reason the police cancelled the ambulance that was in route, hospital records, if any, for Zimmerman after the shooting. With that she charged second degree murder .

On lay people like you and the press are depending on leaked photos that are of dubious validity.

geeezus, you are certainly on another self appointed mission to put those 'lefties' in their place! . . It / Obama / lefties all just eat your lunch daily and you keep going to ALL this trouble!

The key word is . . . . "IF" . . .' the prosecutors had the photo. Searching out more links, starting more conflict baiting threads are not important . . facts are and we don't know what the prosecutors OR the defense are hiding. The truth will hopefully come out and all the slants / threads you (or anyone) starts are not going to mean a thing in the end.

Regardless of who says what, Zimmermann is entitled to an honest trial before he hangs for the murder of an unarmed teenager.
You, as his staunch defender, might want to keep him company on his last trip

This is like a Notre Dame vs. Ohio State football game. The only good outcome is a blimp crash.

But you, of course, have magical knowledge to impart, yes? Please, enlighten us with your FACTS.

it's looking more like Treyvon acted out in response to a Zimmerman question/provocation

is the lynch mob, here, still ready to hang Zimmerman ?

What's the chance that we wait until the trial....?
In reply to Princess Leia, Apr 20, 2012

It swings this way and that. Pro, con....

The only folks who will hear ALL the evidence (if politicians allow it) is the jury. Why not just wait for the outcome?

My gut tells me Zimmerman blew it. But I'd like to hear his version and see if it's believable. Of course, I'll never get to hear it - unless I can get my hands on court transcripts.

But for heaven's sake, why not let our legal system, the finest on the planet, do its thing before we hang this guy just because he killed the "protected" race.

Fla has a history of letting cameras into the courtroom, so you might be able to see the whole thing. That being said, it will probably be a circus in there, everyone playing everything up for the cameras hoping to be a star.

Protected race is opposite of Master race? And we know who is the Master race.

It's your job, right, to be an abysmal stupido.

Get off the same-old rollercoaster unless you feel the need to be entrenched in stupidity. I suspect the latter.

The "protected" race is the race du jur that happens to have its henchmen out politicizing - Al Sharpton, Jesse, mamallama, .... all the doofusses who want to blame the problems of the world on whitee.

You are so freaking predictable. Here we go - I know what's about to happen. You will try to justify your despicably racist point of view. But, who can trust a person who demonstrably sees all whites as the enemy? You are so transparent, I can see your decrepit kidneys. Go for it. Round #7 (or 8 or 9 - who knows).

I engage you because I pity the lower classes with their inferior brains. Honestly, why on earth do you keep doing this to yourself. Got brain?
