Trayvon - theatricality and probability

George Zimmerman to Appear in Court - NYTimes.com:

'via Blog this'

My guess is that George Zimmerman will get a plea deal that amounts to doing time for manslaughter which is the least of his possible offenses. The theatrics around the charge of second degree murder and the charge itself were perhaps deemed necessary as a sort of cod water exercise. Second thoughts may support the probability t of compromise. But if the defense decides to tough it out OJ-style, theatricality will emerge full-blown and  the defendant could walk , to tangible suffering all around.. A terrible crime will go unpunished. A terrible law will gain support.Odious profiling will continue. And hate groups will be more free to ply their trade.
