Zimmerman Trial Verdict Fallout

In the last five weeks, the impaneled jury has heard both sides of the story: The State of Florida purports that Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin, 17, after profiling and following him in the rain. The defense team wants the jurors to see it as a simple case of self-defense.

In recent days, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) has made the news for the decisions it hasn’t made. But recently, SCOTUS made a landmark, while controversial, decision: to allow the continued collection of DNA from felony arrestees, before any…

You may have heard that earlier this month to the south of us in Travis County, District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg, 63, was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated. The arrest video shows a thoroughly annoyed Lehmberg, stumbling and stammering minutes before she was handcuffed by officers. See for yourself.

Later, she was even confined to a chair with a “spit mask”…
