    Mr. Zimmerman drops his attorneys

    They were the ones who just announced it.  They volunteered that they have no idea what he is doing next.  Probably all de rigueur at such a parting.  Meanwhile, he's going public in his own right, issuing statements.  On the news tonight.

    George Zimmerman spoke to Fox News' Sean Hannity off the record, his now-former attorneys alleged in a remarkable press conference on Tuesday.

    Sounds like the attorneys dropped him due to Zimmerman "not returning phone calls".

    Guess he was too busy setting up the website begging for money.

    [QUOTE]Not so much just that he's not returning phone calls. Sounds like he wouldn't even tell him where he was. The big thing is that he spoke to Hannity and wouldn't tell his attorneys what they discussed. I can understand feeling unable to represent someone who refuses to so much as tell you what statements he has made to people. The second he said anything that's conceivably damning, the prosecutor will whip it out at trial. And you simply cannot do a satisfying job if your client hid all sorts of statements from you, and now you're looking like a liar to the jury.

    Apparently he also reached out to the special prosecuter himself, which seems like a very odd move.

    It sounds like the attorneys dropped him.  Decidedly odd behavior by everyone on that side.  But that is what happens when you get a case in the media.  Maybe Zimmerman will hire Hannity.

    I think you're going to see the special prosecutor make an announcement in the next couple of days. She declined to present to the grand jury. I am no law expert by any stretch of the imagination..but it leads me to believe that she is close to a decision that she feels confident in.
    If Zimmerman is talking to Hannity and making statements that he refuses to share with his now former attorneys..perhaps he really is the loose cannon he has been portrayed as.

    His former attorneys are indicating it's more than that.  It could be sour grapes, or this train wreck may not be over.  The special counsel refused contact.  Wonder if he tried to plead out directly with her.

    It is strange that the Zimmerman attorrney's offered up details as to their clients mental state in their comments.  I can't imagine their public comments on him are helpful to his case.

    Again, sour grapes on the part of the former legal team, or an increasingly scary situation?  Attorneys know better than to come out with what we've seen in recent hours, especially when there's more than one.  Unless they're fairly desperate for the world to get it.

    The best favor anyone could do for Mr. Zimmerman would be to take that pistol away.  One wonders how many failures it will take.  Not saying that this dog will hunt, but that the menace to him that's growing fastest is himself.

    Has the interview with Mr. Hannity aired?

    I do not have the impression Mr. Zimmerman's interview with  Mr.Hannity will be aired before the situation is resolved.

    The Attorney's who have been telling us all about Zimmerman have never actually met Zimmerman.  Hilarious.

    These Lawyers just like their faces in front of the camera.

    I watched a clip of the press conference and I couldn't help thinking how cold the lawyers seemed. On the one hand, they are talking about how Zimmerman how he has pstd..on the other hand..they dropped him...?

    A truly strange situation.   Lawyers who have never met their client quit because of lack of contact.  I wonder if they were ever paid.  Maybe T.V. time was their only compensation.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Mr. Zimmerman drops his attorneys : Hoping this wanna-be-cop-goon gets the maximum sentence, but a larger problem needs to be addressed.  Change this ridiculous law in Florida and get the guns away from idiots.  A 17-year-old kid would be alive and two families lives wouldn`t be ruined.

    The Stand Your Ground Law in Florida is not a gun law, it's a self defense law.  It takes away the "duty" to flee if you are being attacked and feel your life is in danger.  It may have it's flaws but it is basically a sound law.  You shouldn't be forced to flee rather than defend yourself and face criminal charges.  In MA, we don't have a Stand your Ground Law and things like this happen: http://swampscott.patch.com/articles/da-drops-charges-against-swampscott-man. There's no way in hell that this guy should have been brought up on charges for breaking a burglar's jaw when he confronts the burglar stealing his tools from his van and then the burglar comes at him with a knife. 

    Since none of us really know what happened in the Martin/Zimmerman case, we need to wait for the facts.  Regardless, it is a tragedy that a young man was killed.  Even if the facts bear out Zimmerman's account, his life will never be the same either.  He'll have to live with knowing he killed a young man and he'll be peeking around the corner for someone that has it out for him.  All could have been avoided if he stayed in his car.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Mr. Zimmerman drops his attorneys : I hear you in regards to getting guns away from idiots but how do we do that? Unless someone has a criminal background or has been diagnosed with mental issues there is no way to keep an otherwise lawful citizen from being able to get a gun license.

    You can make a distinction between a right to possess a firearm and a right to carry it.  Having a gun in your house for protection makes some sense, but carrying one outside can escalate conflicts in a dramatic and deadly fashion.
