    They overcharged Zimmerman in my opinion. Classic case. No one was going to convict him of murder.

    No. It actually isn't. It is beyond time for you to join your locale TEA party and help with the tax revolt. You can recognize us. We are friendly and we pick up our trash.

    Not according to the corner, it was ruled homicide.

    No, what I'm saying is that Erod's claim of the people posting in this thread is complete bull****. Now move along.

    People!!! Tell your damned kids, family and friends to fight the coppers in the courtroom not on the street. We've lost hundreds of thousands of men in battlefields to give you that right. Jesus!!
    One thing I don't recall hearing is an officer telling him to turn around and but his hands behind his back or even "you're under arrest." I just see a police officer grabbing at his arm, then another and him then taken down.

    Was he ever told "you're under arrest" or "put your hands behind you back" (or in the air or "get on the ground" etc.)? Maybe I just missed that part of it. It seems before someone is "resisting arrest" they have to be told they are under arrest, not just grabbing at him. Again, I maybe missed that part of it.

    Wow, yeah, that's pretty dumb. I could see some sort of recklessness charge, but this country has a real blood lust when it comes to justice sometimes.

    It was the purpose, but the government no longer seems bound by it.

    Yes it is, and I carefully explained to you that in the field, it rarely makes any difference, because you don't have access to drugs, defibs, pacers, oxygen, iv fluids, intubation trays, and the rest of the emergency management equipment that you need. And yes, laissez faire. It's a routine procedure to me. There's nothing mysterious about it, and if everything is perfect and available at the moment of death, you still have a small chance.

    This is from July:

    NYPD Cop in Chokehold Death Loses Gun, Badge - ABC News



    He's been getting paid.
    So they were asked to consider only manslaughter? I'll wait until they release the testimonies to see what happened. I'm not even sure of the legal definition of manslaughter but I know this death certainly wasn't "murder".

    Thanks for the link from July, but my husband is surfing around now and he says so far almost everything he's seen says the guy is on unpaid leave and lost his badge and gun for now. Maybe that things changed since July?
