Irresponsible And Unethical

Harvard Prof. Alan Dershowitz: Zimmerman Arrest Affidavit 'Irresponsible And Unethical'

"Most affidavits of probable cause are very thin. This is so thin that it won't make it past a judge on a second degree murder charge," Dershowitz said. "There's simply nothing in there that would justify second degree murder."

Dershowitz said that the elements that would constitute that crime are non-existent in the affidavit. "It's not only thin, it's irresponsible," said Dershowitz.

Dershowitz went on to strongly criticize Corey's decision to move forward with the case against Zimmerman. "I think what you have here is an elected public official who made a campaign speech last night for reelection when she gave her presentation and overcharged. This case will not – if the evidence is no stronger than what appears in the probable cause affidavit – this case will result in an acquittal."
The affidavit reads like the original one sided innocent kid doing nothing wrong chased and gunned down by raving lunatic news stories that started this whole mess. It's already been pretty well established that that's not how this happened, there's a whole lot of shades of gray in this case. Too bad the government officials are more interested in being politically correct than establishing the truth. By allowing the lies to continue to be told like this they are setting up a very dangerous situation, there have already been a couple of revenge attacks from this case.

Remember When Juror #3 Was the Villain?
