I made my statement based on statements made by Special Prosecutor Corey following the filing of second degree murder charges in which she detailed the extent of the "full facts and circumstances" investigation her office conducted, built on two previous investigations by other law enforcement agencies, and introduced the team of experienced homicide investigators who conducted the special prosecutor office's investigation, concluding at one point "We have to have a reasonable certainty of conviction before filing charges."

OH, so you made up your mind just 2 days ago? Sure about that? hmmm?
I predicted based on the "smell test" in this forum last week that Zimmerman would be charged with manslaughter or second degree murder and convicted of same but now that the special prosecutor's office has completed its investigation and has a "reasonable certainty of conviction" on second degree murder charges I'm pretty certain myself this is how it's going down. I'd be virtually certain of conviction though based on all the holes in Zimmerman's version of events if the charge had been manslaughter.
Well, then, why wait for a trial?
Because imprisoning someone on the basis of what I or any other individual merely believe to be true rather than as a result of a fair, deliberate public trial would be a travesty -- which is why I view America's Gulagtanamo on Cuban soil as such a travesty even though I'm sure some of its inmates are guilty of terrorist crimes. What makes Gulagtanamo particularly galling though is Yanks never hesitate to speak out of both sides of their mouths when it comes to the right to due process.
