    "35 to life"? Nope. If the prosecution doesn't downgrade their charge to manslaughter, they will get nothing.

    To the guest on your show who made the comment about the Al Sharpton and the Trayvon Martin case I would like to ask this question:
    If YOUR child was shot in the heart, would you just accept the killers word and be satisfied the police had done an adequate investigation or would you get all the help you could for a through investigation and an arrest of the killer ?
    If George Zimmerman was a black man and killed a white teen would you still feel this was a "weak case " ?

    FYI, I am a white senior citizen !

      George Zimmerman's nose was broken. That and other facts of the case has destroyed the prosecution's argument. If the prosecution reduces the charge to manslaughter, they might have a case. But second-degree murder? No way.

        None of Zimmermans DNA on Trayvon so it is very possible Zimmerman broke his nose falling or some other way.
        Gun recoil is even possible.
        Even if Trayvon did break his nose, Trayvon had a right to stand his ground against a creepy guy who was following him, and most likely confronted him and tried to detain him. He was bound and determinded this "a-hole" was not going to get a way!
        Zimmerman had control of Trayvons wrist , and shot him straight in the heart anyway!

        MURDER 2 ! The state has a strong case! Can't wait for the reinactment at trial to prove Zimmerman was not laying down while he reached for his gun.

        35 to life !

    You spent nearly half of this segment discussing coverage of the Petraeus scandal. Enough said. F's for MSM all around this year. "We're lower than lawyers, in terms of respectability." Exactly.
