Here are two legal opinions by two high profile lawyers who happen to reside at opposite poles of the political axis. Mark Levin and Alan Dershowitz opine on the affidavit of probable cause which spells out the criminal charge of 2nd degree murder against George Zimmerman. Both of them come to the same conclusion that the evidence cited in the affidavit is very weak and doesn’t meet the definition of Florida’s statute for 2nd degree murder. Dershowitz even goes a step further saying that the charge of 2nd degree murder is an unethical “overcharging” by the special prosecutor in order to entice the defendant to plead to a lesser charge. Herewith are the video/audio of Dershowitz and Levin:
Levin. I couldn’t embed this one as it isn’t in Youtube format. If anyone knows how to embed it, please do so.
