The aftermath ...

... of the Zimmerman trial.

After having watched most of the trial and the pressers (including the post-verdict) I am of the impression that Mark O'Mara and Don West have earned every penny of their fee. In addition, Mr O'Mara showed exceptional grace in his victory, expressing no ill will even though he had every right to brag and toot his own horn. Don West was less constrained but still didn't unload like he could have (and was trying hard not to!).

O'Mara did have a choice comment for the reporter who wanted to ask just one more question - how the media aided and abetted Zimmermans prosecution and how they needed to examine how they were fed a narrative (by the racial grievance industry) and ran with it, uncritically.

As for the prosecution, O'Mara still has sanction motions that need to be ruled on, and he needs to appeal any that he does not win. After all, it's immaterial that Zimmerman was acquitted - the prosecution still played fast and loose with the evidence.

Second, O'Mara needs to put together his ground for an appeal even though he won. He needs to do this and submit it to the bar association with a request that Judge Nelson be investigated to determine if she is suitable to be on the bench ... any bench.

Angela Corey and Bernie de la Rionda at the very least should be investigated for possible disbarment, and John Guy and Rich Mantei should be sanctioned (and resign).

Political pressure needs to be brought to bear to have Pam Bondi resign - period. Political pressure also needs to be brought to bear on national politicians to discourage civil rights charges, but because this is politics I have no illusions that any of it will happen.

Regardless, I'm thankful that George Zimmerman is free and at least has a chance at a normal life.

Concur with all, that was simply a pathetic show trial from beginning to end...

Well, he is free. I don't know how "normal" his life is going to be after this media lynching. And the people, Good God, how they strive to preserve their ignorance. Still spouting fictions that were debunked months ago. No one wants to let go of the "racist white boy" narrative. Pitiful.
