Shellie goes to Court

Shellie Zimmerman Goes to Court This Morning

Shellie has a status conference set to be heard this morning at Courtroom 5C in Seminole County. It is expected that a trial date will be set. I expect Shellie to prevail against the one charge of perjury against her. I’m confused that the prosecutor still has not told the defendant what statement she gave in court on April 20, 2012 that was a known lie. Maybe today her defense will learn what that is.

Thank you to all who post here. Out of respect for each other, I ask that you use only one identity to post here. If you have any respect for those that post here, do not knowingly mislead us in your posts. If you can’t support the defense teams of George Zimmerman or Shellie Zimmerman to be successful, it’s probably best to find somewhere else to read. There are sites that work hard to prove George picked the wrong defense even if it ultimately hurts George.

This site is largely supportive of the efforts to fight the state of Florida using the counsels that have been selected by George and Shellie Zimmerman.  We don’t work to show they made a bad choice.  We work to help their choices be successful.  Thanks for joining us!  Let us begin….

Online Ethics

We’ve been having a discussion with Sundance about posting anonymously while outing others. He denies posting under fake identities but there is no doubt some do. I argue it is intellectually dishonest. Sundance is getting some honest feedback about online conduct and I’d like to stay out of it. I’ve had my say the last few days. But what about the rest of us? I get people wanting to post anonymously online, most especially when feedback can be threats to one’s life. Is there anyone who will tell me why they think it’s fair to post under a bunch of fake identities to make their point?
