Post Discussion – George Zimmerman acted in Self-Defense.
As comments aren’t plentiful following the verdict, I’ll post a weekly thread, rather than a daily thread. If something develops that needs another thread, I’ll post one as required.
I trust Shellie and George are decompressing but still apprehensive about the perjury charge against Shellie Zimmerman. I’ll be surprised, in light of state witnesses having knowingly lied under oath that includes the parents of Trayvon Martin, whether the state persists in prosecuting Shellie.
If they do, John Guy will again look like the ass he is as there is not a statement made by Shellie on April 20th that can be proven that she knowingly lied. We now know the state charged George with a charge they couldn’t and didn’t come close to proving. His bond got set based on the seriousness of that charge; murder 2. It could be argued the state lied to the court during the bond hearing. They didn’t have evidence of their charge.
I note the probable cause affidavit fails to tell the court what statement Shellie made that was a known lie. I can’t understand how the judge hasn’t tossed it out already. It will be interesting to see how this situation gets resolved.
