Will George Zimmerman Be Able To Get A Fair Trial? [POLL]

Last night George Zimmerman was arrested and charged with 2nd. degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman allegedly shot and killed Martin in a gated community in Sanford, Florida in February. Zimmerman claims that Martin attacked him and viciously beat him until he was left with no choice but to pull out his legally owned pistol and shoot Martin, killing him. Witnesses at the scene backed up Zimmerman’s claims and no charges were filed until yesterday.

I don’t claim to know all the facts of this case, but I do know it has caused some racial tensions (Zimmerman, by the way is half Hispanic). The Sanford Police Department reviewed the evidence the night of the crime and took statements from witnesses. After reviewing the facts, they determined that Zimmerman was defending himself under the law and no charges were filed.

In the weeks that followed, protesters began arriving in Sanford from all over the United States. They included the Reverend Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and the New Black Panthers. The Panthers even placed a $10,000 bounty for the “capture” of George Zimmerman. Excuse me if I am wrong, but since when is that legal in this country? In my opinion, it was because of this pressure, that a special prosecutor was appointed and thus the charges being placed yesterday against Zimmerman.

It seems to me that the media and the black rights groups have already found him guilty. My question to you is: Will George Zimmerman be able to get a fair trial?
