The States probable cause affidavit reads like it was drafted by the NBC producer that got fired for doctoring the tape.
Harvard Prof. Alan Dershowitz: Zimmerman Arrest Affidavit ‘Irresponsible And Unethical’
Hand cut, Hand stitched, Hand made
But I can also affirm that I was not surprised by the (in my opinion) politically-motivated prosecution. In order to maintain any semblance of order in the Sanford area, I guess that some charge had to be made against Zimmerman. I saw one news report yesterday (on a local, Philadelphia news broadcast) that "Zimmerman's location was unknown, therefore a manhunt was necessary to locate him..." I thought he turned himself in to authorities.
Sometimes, I like Dershowitz and sometimes he grates on me. But I always respect his opinion. Among those with the credentials to make a comment on the Affidavit, Alan Dershowitz is on the short list. Yet I still object to the seeming self-aggrandizement of all of the "pundits" in this case.

Ohh and one more thing, I am referring to you: (" I don't see how you can be an instructor with all those certifications, without understanding the concept; of an unfamiliar person in an area, being asked what they are doing there, as a safety and security question. But your response and action is to be belligerent because the person doesn't display a hallowed symbol of authority (a badge).') the way you respond when challenged" (" I can't even remember how many times I've ignored or told someone to ---- off!").
Needlessly escalating a situation to what purpose?
Beware the Fury of a patient man.
@ MilShooter... I don't know where that Philadelphia newsgroup got that info about having to have a manhunt. Everything described by the PA indicated that FDLE (Florida Dept. of Law Enforcement) knew where he was at all times, and that he was very cooperative. They were in enough contact to tell him exactly where the FDLE was (Jacksonville) so he could come directly there. Media types.... sheeesh!
