    I think the judge did a very good job, which was very difficult. She did her job with class.

    I've sure noticed her pro-prosecution style.

      She is a former Federal prosecutor. She is very bright, well-spoken and I respect her greatly!!!

    This case not only cost a police chief his job, it now has destroyed the reputation of a Judge and greatly diminished the public's view of the state's lawyers. In the end, it seems that the judge and state are hell bent on finding Zimmerman guilty of anything – no matter the cost.
