Fair trial stacked against George Zimmerman in the Trayvon Martin shooting

Perhaps, the judge should be limiting herself from the pre-trial mainstream media stereotype which first reported the unfortunate death of Trayvon Martin, as a racist act of bigoted violence by George Zimmerman? Where are limits and parameters placed upon judges in our US system of justice? Who and what gives them the right to suppress background evidence and play games with juries?

Has the judge placed any limits upon the prosecution attorney? Or, because Trayvon Martin was young, apparently irresponsible and smoking pot; – is that justification to discriminate against George Zimmerman? Are there no limits to political correctness in American courtrooms?

Excerpt:

<<<<<<<<< …….A Florida judge has placed limits on what George Zimmerman’s lawyer can say about the 17-year-old he fatally shot during the neighborhood watch leader’s murder trial next month.

Circuit Judge Debra Nelson ruled Tuesday that Zimmerman’s attorney won’t be able to mention Trayvon Martin’s marijuana use, his suspension from school and his past fighting during opening statements.

The judge also ruled that some of the Martin’s texts and other social media statements won’t be allowed in opening statements, though some of his personal material could be allowed later depending on how the case progresses.

Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara, told the judge that Martin’s marijuana use and past fighting was central to the argument that Zimmerman used self-defense when he confronted Martin last year at a gated community in Sanford, Fla. Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder. He has pleaded not guilty.

“We have a lot of evidence that marijuana use had something to do with the event,” O’Mara said. “It could have affected his behavior.” ……. >>>>>>>>>> – http://news.yahoo.com/judge-jurors-cant-see-crime-scene-martin-case-143106948.html

    I know that this decision has received a lot of criticism from conservative commentators, but it’s actually a pretty standard ruling. Normally speaking, you cannot bring up either a defendant’s or a victim’s past criminal record in a trial as it tends to prejudice a jury. This doesn’t mean that the trial is biased against George Zimmerman.

    1. Joel –

      You go from mentioning a “standard ruling” of the court system and then draw a hasty conclusion. The Moralmatters mini commentary before introducing the one news piece didn’t say that a criminal history record should be in play, “as evidence.” However, that does not preclude the reality of Martin’s condition the day of the shooting. That, should be fair game, along with testimony how the young man generally conducted himself.

      If Zimmerman’s past is going to be on display minus any criminal record; it is only morally fair that his defendant attorney team explore the past (minus the actual criminal record) of Martin. Zimmerman’s legal defense wouldn’t have to refer to “records” but that the diseased, because of certain factors and disposition was no youthful angel persecuted and killed by an alleged “racist” Zimmerman.

    1st was shocked by the crime about what G Zimmerman did till I read more into the real facts. There is sorrow & empathy for Trevon Martins family for his loss. He was into a down hill spiral for quite some time before the shooting – with the use of drugs more than regular marijuana, don’t call it marijuana- call it the correct name! This causes hullucinations & delusions. Many of our youth are affected by these drugs today – a terrible tragedy. These drugs more than likely were the cause of his irrational behavior that night toward George Zimmerman.

    1. Claire –

      Yes. Initially the mainstream media took the unfortunate incident and immediately spun it. The media began to show an innocent younger looking picture of Martin. This (in part) is all the more reason why the trial jury needs to have presented all the information about Martin.
