Zimmerman prosecutors release evidence list

Prosecutors released a summary of evidence Tuesday in the case against neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, who is accused of second-degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin.

The eight-page document released to the public contains a list of possible witnesses and law enforcement reports that could be used in the prosecution's case against Zimmerman.

But it doesn't include details from those statements or reports, and contains no new revelations about the case, which sparked nationwide protests and reflection on race relations and gun laws in the United States.

The document is part of the routine exchange of information between prosecutors and defense attorneys that occurs before trials.

    The Sanford police department will be really on their toes on this incident,having botched up the initial investigation and not arresting Zimmerman right away,even against police policy.They'll be implicated because of their dirty past,having the chiefs son implicated in a homeless man's murder,resulting in the chiefs untimely resignation.Because of coverups within the department and their tactics trying to quiet the bystanders who witnessed the brutal attack and recorded the incident with their cellphones,then,going viral.

      When it comes to CNN and other news agencies in regards to this case they have already dubbed him guilty. If the jury finds him not guilty all hell is gonna break loose because of the irresponsible reporting by the afore mentioned.
