Why hasn't George Zimmermann been arrested?
Trayvon Martin case audio: Screams were not George Zimmerman's, 2 experts say
The voice heard crying for help on a 911 call just before Trayvon Martin was shot to death was not that of George Zimmerman, according to two forensic voice identification experts, the Orlando Sentinel reported Saturday.
Tom Owen, forensic consultant for Owen Forensic Services LLC and chair emeritus for the American Board of Recorded Evidence, told the Sentinel that he used voice identification software to rule out Zimmerman.
Zimmerman told police that he screamed for help during his confrontation with Martin, 17. He claims the shooting was self-defense.
Why hasn't George Zimmermann been arrested? It makes no sense AT ALL! As for the screams, how dare this coward (Zimmermann) claim the screams were his? He was the stalker, he was the aggressor and then he (in the eyes of all that is loathsome) becomes the victim? No one should be tried and convicted before their day in court but when will that day become a reality? The longer this drags on the more absurd and wretched it becomes. thinkingblue
Why didnt the Sanford, Fla., police arrest George Zimmerman after he shot Trayvon Martin Feb. 26? Thats a question that today is more relevant than ever amid reports the lead investigator in the case thought Mr. Zimmerman should be charged with manslaughter for his actions.
Trayvon Martin's parents went before a congressional panel and thanked those who turned their 17-year-old son's death into a cry against racial profiling. Martin's parents spoke at a Capitol Hill forum that began with a moment of silence.
The investigator, Chris Serino, was unconvinced by Zimmermans assertion that he resorted to deadly force in self-defense, according to ABC News. Mr. Serino filed an affidavit to that effect on the night of the killing.
But Serinos superiors, in turn, were apparently unconvinced by Serinos reasoning. They did not take Zimmerman into custody because of two words: probable cause.
This story becomes more heart wrenching with each passing day. The boy is gone, I wish we could bring him back but we can bring about closure with justice. WHAT ARE THEY WATING FOR? thinkingblue
Thousands of marchers took buses Saturday to take part in a large protest in the Florida town where Trayvon Martin was shot and killed in February. The protesters demanded justice for the teen.
Florida Turns Gunshine State After Years of Republican Control
EXCERPTS: The goal of the gun lobby is to make Florida their armed utopia and spread that mentality nationally, said Dan Gross, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.
In Tallahassee, the NRA has won battles with business interests, police departments, local governments and pediatricians since 1999, when Republicans won control of the Legislature and the governors office. The organization has championed 38 laws since then to expand rights to conceal, possess, display, discharge, sell or transfer firearms, according to state records.
That helped put Florida among the 10 states with the laxest gun laws, according to a 2011 scorecard from the Brady Campaign, which advocates gun control.
While the Sunshine States violent crime has decreased, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, gun- related fatalities increased 35 percent from 1999 to 2009, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Thats double the rate of population growth during that time and seven times greater than the national average.
Its the Gunshine State, said Kent Morden, manager at U.S. Pawn & Auto Inc. in Longwood, standing near a case of assault rifles surmounted with a remote-control plastic robot toy. Everybodys got one.
The state of about 19 million has about 6 million gun owners, Hammer said. About 800,000 have concealed-carry permits that allow them to carry hidden firearms, according to Florida Agriculture Department statistics. In 2004, then-Governor Jeb Bush signed bills that blocked police from collecting data on firearm sales at pawnshops and barred lawsuits over cleaning up lead at gun ranges.
Then-Governor Charlie Crist signed a law in 2010 forbidding adoption agencies from considering gun ownership when matching children with prospective parents.
And last year, Republican Governor Rick Scott, an NRA member, approved the so-called docs versus Glocks statute. The law prohibits doctors from asking patients whether they have guns. Pediatricians opposed the bill, comparing questions about firearms to asking about using car seats or keeping poisons in the home.
Gun Law in Florida Might Land Me in Jail!
A law passed by the Florida legislature and likely
to be signed by Republican Governor Rick Scott
would make it a crime for doctors to counsel parents
about gun safety in the home.
It's hard to fathom the reach and power the NRA and its lobbies have. How many children must suffer and die because of this insanity? Why can't something be done to stop the madness? There are many who do not agree with the psychopathic philosophies of the NRA, yet we all must live under their will. WHY? Its got to be more than just money but unfortunately, money talks the language of oppression and so the tyranny continues. thinkingblue.
