    Honesty and integrity have been on the decline for people who swear and take an oath to maintain integrity and honor in their specified jobs that require those character traits. It appears we have had Presidents and even Attorney Generals in the United States of America have done this before. Since those occasions, people's pride make them believe they won't be caught. Even in our state elected officials in high offices think they may be above the law. A lowly attorney in Florida won't be the last to do this abhorrent behavior while representing a client, the people of the State of Florida with all the integrity he could muster, none.

    So, why not give Zimmerman a fair trial and then move on? There appears to be a lot of heavyweight politics going on behind the scenes. The use of "premeditated" in this instance appears to be way overboard. A charge of manslaughter evidently would have been upheld and everyone could move on. The extreme charges are a boon only to the national media.

    Prosecutors witholding evidence to stack the deck against a defendant is nothing new. Sad, but ture.
