    Given the history of near collusion from local officials, from releasing Zimmerman without charges, to race baiting from the original police chief, to the highly selective nature of the prosecutor's incompetence (selective in all the ways to benefit the defendant), to the lack of minority representation within the Prosecutor's office (and up and down the FL political system) — well let's just say that their performance should not necessarily be written off as "poor."

      to see what if any substances he may have taken that could have influenced his behavior.

    •  O'Mara played the race card over & over (2+ / 0-)

      I have nothing but overwhelming disdain for Mark O'Mara, who stated in 2012 when he was appointed defense attorney, that he would treat the case with dignity & justice.

      Even before the trial started, O'Mara pulled out his ever present race card with allegations against Trayvon's character.  O'Mara's statements were splashed across the media, without question.  When the statements were proven to be completely false, O'Mara shrugged with a "so what?" attitude.  He should have immediately been pulled from the case.  But no -- not in Florida.  

      O'Mara then had the chance to repeatedly use the race card over and over in the trial.   You don't believe me?  Listen to O'Mara's closing statement on Friday 7/12.  It was crude, vile, full of lies.  As a white woman, I was and I am absolutely ashamed of O'Mara -- who proved himself to be the despicable racist and liar that he is.  

      I hope we see justice and I hope that Mark O'Mara rots in hell.
