    saying that the trial was a travesty, it should never have happened, and that at the very least the judge should have directed a not guilty verdict and canceled the rest of the proceedings.

    (He said this on Michael Smerconish's radio program, who repeated it while guest hosting for Tweety).

    Oh, wait, he's one of the guys that got O.J. off.

    So at least we know where he's coming from.

    Marry the one you love, not the one a bigot says you're allowed to love.

      i thought the state didn't do a good job.

      now to meet a summary judgement or
      MJOA(Modified Judgement of Acquittal),
      the judge needs to look at the evidence in
      the light most favorable to the state.

      The state had

      GZ with a gun, that fired the shot.

      GZ was not law enforcement,

      evidence of a fight between the two of them.

      evidence GZ was following TM.

      that's probably enough to sustain the states case but barely.

      the defense took that apart.
