VERDICT: Zimmerman gets away with murder

The George Zimmerman trial was a farce, and his acquittal was a travesty of justice. If Zimmerman had followed law enforcement suggestion to “not follow him,” Trayvon Marton would be alive and Zimmerman would not be the pariah of society that he is now.

She obtained a tattoo, “Bella Vita” (beautiful life), and insisted Caylee was kidnapped by a fictitious nanny named Zanaida Gonzalez. A real-life Zanaida Gonzalez has just served Anthony with a defamation suit.

Casey’s attorney, Jose Baez, in a stunning opening statement, suddenly claimed Caylee accidentally drowned. He then accused Casey’s father and brother of molesting Casey. He argued Casey’s partying (and lying) resulted from being abused, yet provided no evidence.

The judge later ruled
