^^^I hear you... but DESPITE the Special Prosecutors CLEAR professionalism she IS afterall, an active and POWERFUL republiklan.

The defense... and his Arraignment date has been set for May 29th... WILL seek the most favorable venue possible for a trial. The Judge that will hear his Case is a republiklan. (Or he WAS before being elected to office) They will ask to move the trial to another area with a large enough media market to handle the case, but small enough to have a relatively un-polluted jury pool.

Panama City or Ft. Walton Beach would be perfect; gop strongholds for S.A. Corey, anti-black sentiment for the defense.

I can SEE her using this case as a springboard for higher office...

Seems that getting a conviction would garnish her notoriety and place her in a position to obtain higher political office. If that is the case, she'll fight hard to have the case tried in a place like Jacksonville or Tampa.  Both places are ethnically diverse and would provide a large pool of jurors.

In all of this, Martin's mother has been a gracious and calm person....She knows this was a tragic accident.

Again, I personally believe Zimmerman should have been arrested from the outset...and charged with at least voluntary manslaughter....

Nice try.

Update: Trayvon Martin's mom retracts 'accident' characterization, says Zimmerman killed him in 'cold blood'

She's a grief stricken mother. Her confused comments are understandable.

Anway, I think the prosecutor will have a uphill battle to prove the charge of 2d degree murder......I am still not sure Zimmerman will actually stand trial.

THE PROSECUTORS CONTEND THAT ZIMMERMAN PROVOKED THE INCIDENT AND CHASED A FLEEING TRAYVON MARTIN.

Now that Zimmerman has been charged perhaps it's time for mom and dad to pull back from doing so many interviews?

.............sir, pardon me, but exactly what is concerning to you about the number of interviews the parents are doing? ???  It seems to me that, at least up until THIS point, they have received SUPERB advice from their team of lawyers, publicists, etc. 

What your humble poster has found especially touching about these folks is that they come across as genuine, real people.  When Ms. Fulton states that, "Trayvon is my son, Trayvon is your son," that is a plea that reasonates with people all over this country, and not just black folks.  I suppose there is a point where Ms. Fulton and Mr. Martin might, shall we say, wear out their welcome.  But your humble poster doesn't think we've yet reached that point.

My suspicion is that they will continue to lead the "movement" for FULL prosecution of the person they sincerely believe MURDERED their son.

^^^^Yes it is. When she said accident on the Today Show, the reporter asked her again, did you just said it was an accident and she said yes. I saw her lawyer tap her on the shoulder.
Not saying I’m Flawless. But I dam sure don’t tarnish.

I didn't mean to imply they are being overexposed. My concern stems from Ms. Fultons unintentional comment that this episode was an accident. Even though she made a retraction I think it's critical they make very measured comments so as not to unwittingly hurt the prosecution. They can continue to lead the charge for justice without doing so many live interviews, where it's more difficult to control the atmosphere and questions that will be presented. Just my opinion, but I think they should stick with prepared statements and/or speak through their attorney until the trial (if it comes to that) is over.
