<<The Sanford Police Department requested an arrest warrant from the Seminole County State Attorney's Office, the special prosecutor in the case told the Miami Herald on Tuesday.>>
i live 30 minutes from sanford and have been following the talk radio shows on this incident/crime. i believe zimmerman is going to do some hard time. im not buying the "self defense" claim.
I'm one for waiting until all the facts come out and let the legal system take it's course.
Gotta comment, though, trayvon was not the squeaky clean "good boy" the millions of his homies are making him out to be. Not much being said about his obscene twitter account with a pic of him with his middle finger raised and him wanting someone shot. Additionally, after the shooting, his family acknowledged his suspension from school was for tardiness. That's not exactly truthful, as it was for possession of a baggie with pot residue. He was also caught on camera defacing school property with "WTF". And that was letting him off lightly as when they searched his back pack for the graffitti tool, they found 10 or so pieces of women's jewelry along with a thick flat head screwdriver which was described as a burglary tool. But there was no evidence of a crime, so the suspension went for the pot.
If this ever does go to court, it will be interesting how much of each one's past will be admitted as evidence. Will one be admitted but not the other ? Also will be interesting to see if the judicial system will be made a mockery of als OJ / Ito.
