    assuming the tables were turned:

    Black assailant, and White Victim,

    -- in such a case, then the Audio Experts are in like Flynn.


    that would be the travesty.


    Audio Experts DO get used.  Its Evidential Science that is 70 years old.

    Just not good enough here: 52% that it's probably not Zimmerman.

    That is more than the basis for "likely cause"  (civil cases:  50%)

    Probable cause is supposed to meet a threshold of around 90%, (in criminal cases) as I recall from my instructions once, as I sat on a jury,
    (defending the black man's case in deliberations, btw)
