Well it's official as of now. ZImmerman will be charged with second degree murder and is in custody. What do you all think?
I've been saying a while, there is evidence that was tampered with by Sanford PD. Is this a good charge or no?

I'm just thinking how poorly this is going to reflect (and probably already has, at this point) on the city of Sanford and central FL as a whole

Why, well how would it reflect Central Florida? Thats like saying th three shootings in my neighborhood the last two weeks makes Daytona Beach look bad?

No I'm sorry it makes Sanford and it's police squad look bad. People know Central Florida as a whole is not represented by Sanford, heck not even Orlando does that.

I don't know, it may be difficult to convict on 2nd degree murder. I'm hoping that the Judge also allows manslaughter. They may be setting themselves up for a major face plant on this one.

I don't know how it could possibly be manslaughter.
This is cold-blooded murder plain and simple.

I think it's a strategic move. Zimmerman will plea bargain for a manslaughter charge if he's smart.

Even if they dont have additional evidence to convict on 2nd degree murder, its a win -win for the state of Florida. They have the murder charge to appease the outraged, and they can blame the jury if he's found not guilty. Amateur, but shrewd work by the state prosecutor's office

I am totally against trial by vigilante, so a trial by jury is the only way to go.

Nothing good will come of this. The riots after he is aquited will be just as tragic.
