This goes straight to the killer's honesty and veracity.

No wonder Detective Serino had a difficult time believing Captain Zimmerman (the alleged Murderer) on that fateful. Sunday evening.

If the killer is not going to be honest about small matters, he's definitely NOT going to be honest about weightier matters.

That is irrelevant to the fact Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin. Period. The end.

Are you all aware of the fact that Martin would not have been allowed to go to his school prom becuase of his mutliple suspensions in this past year of school? he would not be allowed to participate in any school sport activity due to his suspensions? why? because he has a bad record in school, trouble maker to the end.

<quoted text>Obama talks bin Laden in rare sit room interview. Obama spikes football….again.
By DYLAN BYERS and JOSH GERSTEIN |
4/27/12 2:20 PM EDT
Brian Williams of NBC News held a rare interview with President Barack Obama about the killing of Osama bin Laden in the White House Situation Room yesterday. It will air on May 2nd, the anniversary of bin Laden’s execution.
THESE ARE THE SAME PEOPLE THAT CLAIM SHOWING THE PICTURES WILL INFLAME THE INSURGANTS…………what does Obama call running an interview from the situation room……………………It’s called campaigning.
Washington (CNN)-- A federal judge has turned aside calls to publicly release video and photographs of the U.S. military raid and aftermath that left al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden dead.
Judicial Watch, a conservative legal group, had asked the Department of Defense to comply with a Freedom of Information request for the material, especially photos of the September 11 mastermind lying dead on the third floor of his Pakistan hideout.
The group argued it was being "irreparably harmed" by the Obama administration's "unlawful withholding of requested records."
But Judge James Boasberg ruled Thursday there were legitimate national security interests to deny disclosure.
Obama is now in full CYA mode. The document is out now that gives the entire story of how the ADMIRAL in charge was the one that gave the go ahead. Obama left himself an out, if things didn't pan out. The Admiral would have had to fall on his sword.
Obama is a gelding, and I don't mean a horse.

Legal god Alan Dershowitz has blasted the prosecutor in the Trayvon Martin case, FOX News reports.

Dershowitz says the prosecutor, Angela Cory, overreached on the murder charge and committed a crime by omitting key exculpatory evidence from her affidavit.

Specifically, he says:

The prosecutor should have mentioned the photos of Zimmerman's bleeding head, which suggest he was involved in a major physical struggle.
If the prosecutor knew about these photos when she filed the affidavit, she has committed perjury.
"There's nothing in the affidavit that suggests this was second-degree murder."
By over-charging Zimmerman (with second-degree murder), the prosecutor has sown the seeds for race riots: When Zimmerman is acquitted, there will be mass outrage.
If the prosecutor hasn't already hired a lawyer to defend herself, he says, she should
Other legal experts agree with Dershowitz's assessment of the murder charge.

Irrelevant. Gallivanting is not a crime. Trayvon committed no crime. Zimmerman will be convicted on Manslaughter.

Wrong. The opinion that a Prosecutor overcharged is not illegal on these facts, and in fact is discretionary. Furthermore, the Judge agreed with the charges, and authorized the case to proceed. Lastly, the Prosecutor has immunity from lawsuits, including the one you are manufacturing. I do believe that Manslaughter would seem like the more appropriate charge, but I have not seen the evidence. The Prosecutor has. She has the duty and obligation to proceed just as she has. Zimmerman pursued, confronted, and killed an innocent, unarmed minor. The end.

There was no probable cause to dispute the altercation.
All that was done was an abuse of power to deceive and banter about the authority of the inept 911 operator who was fending off help and then tried to cover themselves .
thats not probable cause -
