    I'm wondering where they'll hold it myself, because I'm not sure there's anywhere he could get a fair trial. Everyone knows about the case, everyone has an opinion on it

    That's not even the most important part. Rather, what will the racial makeup of the jury look like? This is a racially charged trial, so it becomes important. Theoretically, you could argue that any black person is going to want his head. So you put allw hites in? That's going to go over well. Some Latinos? There will be enough people to argue that, sicne he is one, they might give him undue leniency.

    It's going to be a hell of a job finding a jury where every member looks beyond the race crap and only regards the facts.

    Apparently, Zimmerman has waived a hearing that theoretically could have gotten the entire case dismissed under "Stand Your Ground", so the case will proceed to a regular jury trial in June. This doesn't mean that he won't still plead "Stand Your Ground" in the trial itself, but (To my knowledge) if he brings it up in the trial he'll have to convince the jury, as opposed to just swaying the judge.
    Life is like a roller coaster. It has its ups and downs, but if you sit back and relax you get a heck of a ride.

    This baffles me. Zimmerman has everything to gain and nothing to lose.

    A theory some other lawyers have is that his lawyers weren't positive they could sway the judge and didn't want to give the prosecutors a look at their defense strategy, so they passed the hearing up with the hope of getting a better shot with the jury.

    Of course, that's pure conjecture.

    It's pure conjectures but does make sense. If he's using a weak, bullshit argument that they know won't sway a judge and just ends up giving away their entire game plan, it would be better to just gamble and go to the jury.

    Guess they hope his jury will be very, very white. And conservative.
