ReliplapseVop : So I've pretty much narrowed down my choices to two phones since I don not to purchase a data package, the LG Octane and the Samsung Reality. Both are free, the Samsung Reality was renamed and is now is free with a two year contract on Best Buy and the LG Octane is free on Amazon mobile. So, independent of price, which do you think is the better phone overall? As for me, I'm a frequent text messager, but I also put a high value on call quality, build quality, interface etc.

Jury in Zimmerman case may consider other charges
27 minutes ago

George Zimmerman leaves the courtroom during a recess in his trial in Semin...
SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — George Zimmerman's attorney strongly objected to a prosecution proposal that third-degree murder be included in the jury instructions.

Defense attorney Don West on Thursday called the proposal "outrageous," given that it is premised on the idea that Zimmerman committed child abuse since 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was underage when he was fatally shot.

Judge Debra Nelson says she will rule on the proposal later. The judge, however, agreed with the prosecution that jurors could consider manslaughter as a lesser charge.

West said he wanted the six jurors to only consider the second-degree murder charge or not guilty.

Zimmerman is pleading not guilty to second-degree murder. He claims he shot Martin in self-defense last year.

sleemnavalolo : Zimmerman will be found not guilty in my opinion. Once this happens, he will be launched into the world of Hollywood celebrities and straight in the top 10 of all time American heroes.

biddeteemict : Yeah, it's really great to be charged with additional crimes during the trial so that you can't defend yourself against them. Traditionally, charges are listed at the beginning of a trial so that the accused can defend against those charges. Why not throw in tax evasion and jaywalking as possible verdicts?

Normagree : remember that each state has it's own laws so the case must be determined according to those laws. Therefore, in Florida, there's a good chance he can get off on self-defense. What occurred definitely was not murder. It's somewhere in-between. The question would be "do the jurors know Florida law".

doristop : Perhaps 3. Maybe 4. This move shows the precariousness of the prosecution's case. Lord knows this is pissing off the libs.

Booftoino : 1) The PROSECUTION presented not even one piece of evidence suggesting a 2nd Degree Murder happened.
2) Ludicrous - and the Prosecution's best hope.
3) The PROSECUTION presented not even one piece of evidence suggesting Manslaughter happened.
4) ALL of the evidence points this way. LITERALLY ALL of it.
5) Maybe. Lawyers say "Jury" = "A group of people too stupid to get out of Jury Duty."

The Judge WILL give the Jury ILLEGAL instructions, essentially commanding them to find Zimmerman guilty of SOMETHING. We can be sure of this since she openly ruled that the Prosecution is ENTITLED to a "fair chance" of getting a conviction, so she SELECTIVELY allowed/excluded evidence to "level the playing field" upon-which the prosecution otherwise had NO CHANCE.
