Zimmerman Lie Detectored

The Smoking Gun reports that George Zimmerman passed a lie detector test during the original police investigation into Trayvon Martin's death.

Can't wait to see what MSNBC and Lawrence O'Donnell have to say about that. If cast of MSNBC were put on a lie detector it would explode.

Number 1, they won't ever mention it. If they did mention it, it would be to only point out that lie detectors are not admissible in court as proof of innocents.

This young man has done nothing wrong, according to eyewitnesses, the local police and now a lie detector. Explain to me again why Sharpton, Jackson, Farrakhan, Obama got their way?

It is a travesty. No way this was 2nd degree murder. But still George Zimmermans life is ruined, FOREVER!

I have no clue what went on in Florida, but as far as lie detector tests go:

Mike, you imply that the American Psychological Association is the last word. Not hardly.

Its been proven that Zimmerman is a liar. On the phone he says to the police that the person he's following looks to be in his late teens. In his apology to Martins parents, he says he thought Martin was close to his age (28). He also went back to jail for lying to the court about his finances.

Maybe the Supreme Court is better for you than the APA.

@Bob: I'd point out that Zimmerman being a shady dude doesn't change what actually happened. I don't want to try him by anything other than what went down that night. If he's guitly so be it, if the shooting was justified.......that's fine by me.

I am embarrassed that Zimmerman has spent so much time in jail.

The money raised on the web site for his defense was not truly his finances. Do some research! They were donations to his defense fund. He is being railroaded pro bono by Sharpton and Jackson assassin lawyers.

Mark my words, George Zimmerman will be found not guilty of 2nd degree murder. Or the judge will toss this before it even goes to trial.

I will send another hundred to his defense fund when he get's bail!

Bob,
If you are saying liars offend you, then it must be difficult to support the dog eater.

From the police report -
After reviewing the evidence and interviewing Zimmerman, the police detective concluded that Zimmerman's actions were "inconsistent" with someone who was afraid of Martin, and that Zimmerman had several chances to end the encounter without violence.

"Investigative findings show that Zimmerman admitted avoiding a confrontation with Martin while Zimmerman was observing Martin from his vehicle, because, as he told investigators, was afraid of Martin," Det. Chris Serino wrote. "Later in the encounter, Zimmerman exited his vehicle, in spite of his earlier admission to investigators that he was afraid of Martin, and followed Martin in an effort to maintain surveillance of him while Zimmerman awaited the arrival of law enforcement officers. His actions are inconsistent with those of a person who has stated he was in fear of another subject.

"Inconsistent" is a subjective observation, more worthy of a liberal blog commentator than a law enforcement officer.
I certainly wouldn't want to be judged by the supposed consistency of my actions rather than their lawfulness.

Obviously a case of the prosecutor building her case responsive to public opinion rather than the facts.
