ZIMMERMAN TRIAL UPDATE: THE BIZARRE CAGE MATCH OF WEST V. NELSON

Written by Donald Joy on July 11, 2013

Screen Shot 2013-07-11 at 6.15.10 PMWhen the throwdown between West and Nelson finally came to a head over that attempt by the state, to include possible 3rd degree felony murder w/child abuse, Nelson spoke aloud what many have been saying ever since this abomination got underway–in final reply to West’s adamant declaration of outrage and of how unfair her and the prosecution’s approach has been from day one, she herself flatly voiced the ultimate reality of this unjust, malicious display of racial politics:  She at long last stated out loud, for all to hear, that if her rulings and handling of this case are in error or in violation of anything, they certainly can be appealed to a higher authority.

Word.

Lead prosecutor Bernie De la Rionda made his long, bellowing, absurd closing argument today, hyping (as the prosecution has all along) even moreso the empty theatrics of an accusation without even the rudimentary merit of probable cause.  Emphasizing especially what Sanford police detectives Doris Singleton and Chris Serino have already sworn are merely insignificant, minor discrepancies in Zimmerman’s story, the kind which are typical of an innocent, truthful person’s attempt to recall minute details of a traumatic event after surviving it, De la Rionda went all-out to try to sell the state’s fraud.

I have to say, given as high a profile as this case has come to inhere, it’s plain that both prosecutors and the defense team are fighting with absolutely everything they have.  Attorneys on both sides are making huge names for themselves by showing their world-class skills and sheer tenacity every step of the way.  Only one side is, in the literal sense, illegitimately trying to take a prisoner.

The side which has only the legitimate agenda of freeing an innocent would-be prisoner will present their closing argument tomorrow.

Sleep well tonight, warriors.
