According to Nym, he was accidentially unbanned.  The mistake has been rectified.

Oh, good.

Here's the thing about Zimmerman's testimony; besides the police themselves (who didn't exactly have a sterling reputation before this incident), few other people involved in the case have corroborated with what Zimmerman says is true. Most of the witnesses say that Zimmerman was in the wrong.

How is this even controversial? I really don't understand conservatives sometimes.

Most of us aren't saying Zimmerman should be shot on the spot or found guilty without a trial. But the fact that he hasn't even been arrested is just ridiculous... What a stupid law.

In case you didn't notice, somewhere preserved in inert gas is this piece of paper called the "Constitution." In the "Constitution," are a series of "Amendments" generally called "The Bill of Rights." In those Amendments there are provisions that a person arrested is entitled to know the charges against him, and, once charged, is entitled to a "speedy trial."


Had Zimmerman been arrested, the clock would have started towards a speedy trial. Since he was not arrested, the prosecutor still has until the expiration of the statute of limitations to build a case. Generally, murder has no statute of limitation.

Incessant demands for an "arrest" so that you can have your "perp walk" might make you feel better, but, they don't further the cause of justice. Would you really want Zimmerman tried before all the evidence against him was collected, if there is such evidence to collect?

The real scandal in Washington is not the bribery, corruption, or sex. It is how poorly we are governed.
