I wouldn't hold my breath about this one. I think the defense counsel is a bit premature. Zimmerman told Hannity that "I got out of the car."

I'm sure the OP and those right wing base voters like her have already decided the case in their minds, and are eagerly awaiting his release.

The black kid deserved to die.

On another note,

Minorities.....Why don't more of you vote GOP? .....They love you. Why don't you give them a chance?

Well, it's not "imminent" and in these hearings the burden of proof is on the defense. However, it was interesting to read that if he wins here, he's shielded from civil suit which would be huge.

Preparing for the “Stand Your Ground” hearing will require the same time and resources that would be necessary to prepare for a trial. It will take time to collect and submit reciprocal discovery, depose witnesses and experts, and identify evidence to be submitted during the hearing. We anticipate this will still take several months.
Hard to say. The SYG laws are so wishy washy they seem to cause some wierd verdicts.

Will Obama lose the hispanic vote if "one of his sons" is vindicated and Zimmerman is jailed?

I guess the system is either racist to blacks or hispanics in this case.

So, which one are you racist against? Can't be neither because one of these people have to win their case.

Both the shooter and the victim in this case are "minorities". Not really following your attempt to inject politics into this.

Black is more of a minority because the president is half-black and there is more social justice deserving to blacks than hispanics. Plus, hispanics look white. I'm sure you can understand this.

I'm well aware of that fact.

Public perception is another thing.

If you don' see the right lining up behind Zimmerman, making him one of their own, "white" ,then you are just naive or playing dumb.
