Now We Know Why He Was Walking a Long Way in the Rain for Skittles
Not exactly a drug to make you more aggressive, or so I've heard. Still the apocryphal derivation of hashhish is from assassin as they supposedly got high in order to go murder people. Hmmm.
As a former prosecutor, I think I know a bad case (a dog) when I see one and what I see now of this case is a cloud of fleas.
She knew all this information, and with great care sidestepped around it in the affidavit. Knowledgeable legal bloggers ID'd the weaknesses in the affidavit immediately.
Wanna bet she was afraid of the black reaction to a lesser, or no, charge? Jackson & Sharpton & Co.'s implicit (explicit?) cries of racism intimidated her, and she was afraid of another "Rodney King" type uprising in the black community.
So Zimmerman now gets to enjoy the expense of his legal defense and the risk of a guilty finding of 2nd degree murder.
It would be interesting to hear how the discussions went among her staff re: what charge(s) to bring.
