More Misinfo on Trayvon Case

MSNBC isn't the only cable network falling down on the job of getting the facts straight in the Trayvon Martin case.

On FOX, Greta Van Sustern had a couple of criminal defense attorneys, a Bernie Grimm and a Ted Williams, on her show to discuss the charging of George Zimmerman with Second Degree Murder.

From the transcript:
BERNIE GRIMM, CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY: Right. They can always overcharge and sort of give you the dump truck indictment. And that's because if the injure (sic) compromises they will compromise to the lesser charge. And the lesser charge may in fact be what happened, but they'll over charge it just to do that.
But I was talking to Ted before the show. I've never had a homicide in 25 years where my client got his gun back. I said, Ted, how many homicide investigations did you investigate --
VAN SUSTEREN: He got the gun back?
WILLIAMS: The allegations we (hear) is he got the gun back. Not only did he get the gun back, but they didn't take his clothes that night. There's a lot of physical evidence that a good defense attorney would be able to work with in this case.
Van Sustern should know by now that the "allegation" that the cops gave Zimmerman his gun back that night is completely bogus. Even the far-left Mother Jones magazine knows this. And still it's being carelessly repeated again and again by nitwits.

Van Sustern should have been able to correct both her "guests" on this point. That she didn't is her own lame fault.

Grimm is quite right about one thing. Prosecutors frequently overcharge defendants with crimes they have no intention of trying to prove. They do this with both black and white (and white-Hispanic) defendants. It is a despicable practice and prosecutors should be called on it more often.

UPDATE: More foolishness from Mr. Williams:
WILLIAMS: But you can't bring a gun to a fistfight. It's as simple as that... 
What a dope! In Florida, and in other pro-gun carrying states, you can not only bring a gun to a fistfight, you can bring one to a cocktail party. The question here is when you can actually, reasonably and legally use it to defend yourself against bodily injury.

Williams goes on to voice concern that Zimmerman might manage to beat this murder rap ala Casey Anthony. And Williams is a defense attorney. God help his clients.

Our own Bob Bohne makes that same defense over and over. Bob says Martin was not armed, when I mention many times he was using his arms to allegedly beat someones head into the ground, he still thinks Zimmerman should not have shot Martin.
There is a major difference from fighting with fists in the school yard against a bully, and being beaten in the back alley by a young stranger.

Yo, Anonymous: Danny is not a dope. Even our own Bob Bohne would admit that... Unless, that is, he is now posting as Anonymous?
