    Railroaded into court to satisfy a bunch of bleeding hearts when anyone with any legal sense knew that there was not enough evidence to convict him... you're dang right the state ought to pick up the tab !

    The state of Florida and county prosecutors office ought to have known better. Experienced police detectives grilled him for hours and they all concluded it was a case of self defense. This is a country of LAWS, like it or not, and the law says that EVERYONE has a right to defend themselves from attack. All evidence shows that George was to one who was attacked. Get over it!

      But it's not true. The lead detective, Chris Serino, recommended Z be charged with manslaughter, twice. He was overruled by the state attorney. And then he was demoted. There is much speculation about how that happened, but that's what happened.

      Additionally, if it were your 17 year old son who was shot and killed, don't you think you might have made a stink when the person who murdered him wasn't even arrested? No. You would have said, "Oh, well, I didn't need that son anyway."
