Seventy-three percent of people questioned in the survey say that George Zimmerman should be arrested, with 11% disagreeing and 16% unsure. Zimmerman admits to shooting and killing Martin, an unarmed African-American teenager, in Sanford, Florida, on February 26.

"Nearly two-thirds of whites and 86% of non-whites say Zimmerman should be arrested," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland, "as well as majorities of Republicans, Democrats and independent voters."

Presumably the 11% that disagree are PA RINO types that disagree with everything.

Since when, in this country, is our justice system suppose to alleve itself to polls?

Isn't one of the most asked questions by lawyers when selecting a juror is how much exposure they have had about press releases regarding the case.

At this juncture, Zimmerman would have to have the trial moved to some country without any exposure to the outside world.

With everything that has come out in the last 24 hours I'm thinking a plea deal is more and more likely. I don't think it's possible to prosecute Zimmerman for a felony. Not with his injuries, a witness to the beat-down that lead to the shooting and Florida's laws. You can't imagine the prosecutors are too excited about their prospects.

With the 24/7 mainstream media firestorm message of "Zimmermann" is guilty can you expect a different poll result?

Especially if it can be proven the voice calling for help on the tape is his and not Martin's.

Still, I think it's nuts that someone can accost someone else who's minding their own business, provoke a fight and then justifiably kill the person if they're losing the fight. It might be "self-defense" under Florida law, but it ain't cricket. And I've little doubt that had Zimmerman been black and Martin a white teenager, that the self-defense excuse wouldweb accepted so quickly with the cops.

If you had asked me two days ago, I would have been part of that two-thirds.

Now I am part of the 16%.

Time and facts will tend to do that to a person.

I wonder if Zimmerman might eventually sue someone for defamation of character if he is found to be innocent.

He should slap a suit on the NACCP or individuals such as Sharpton, Jackson, etc.

None of that irrelevant crap like police procedure, the trial system or actual evidence matters. Are you kidding? The polls are in!

OK. They don't use guns, but, if they could...........my, oh my, oh my, they'd have to call this the Motley Dead.

I don't find it hard to believe. I think it's nuts that it's a legal justification for homicide. It's even more nuts that someone can just say "self defense" when the cops show up and avoid an arrest and investigation. Of course, this is an exceptional case. Wonder what makes it so exceptional?

One thing is Florida's SYG law, which prohibits the police from arresting someone who claims self-defense under SYG until the police have collected sufficient evidence to overcome that claim.

It's an exceptionally bad law.

Crap, that came out badly. I mean I'm going to repaste your comments with proof you're wrong. And I promise there will be proof, it's painfully obvious they have an ongoing investigation with a ton of evidence.

That's a long time before 24/7 cable news and internet.

This guy will do more time than Corzine, whether or not he is guilty. Oh, say did you hear? Corzine personally told his staff DIRECTLY to TRANSFER segregated CUSTOMER money.

Here we are three years and counting of just one example of the greatest heist in history and the powers at be are more concerned about "the letter of the law" than the moral reprucussions.

What would extra company funds be deposited in a customer account? I sure as heck have never gotten a statement with 200 million dollars extra dollars in it.
