Should Florida pay for George Zimmerman's legal expenses?
Under Florida law, if a defendant is indigent and was acquitted, the state is required to pay for his legal expenses. LOL! That would be the biggest smack in the face to Angela Corey, who was silly for bringing such a weak case to court.
I am not an advocate of this even though I think Zimmerman was innocent. Because there are many indigent people who should be prosecuted for terrible crimes. I don't want to set a standard that might scare prosecutors from bringing more legit cases out of fear of getting blamed for the state picking up an even larger tab. However, if I was Zimmerman I would file an independent suit against the prosecutors office since they got caught withholding evidence from the defense. Outside of that, he should seek restitution from places like NBC that doctored the 911 calls to frame his statements to sound racist and stir up a whirlwind around him.

If Martin's hand was covering Zimmerman's mouth as he claims, wouldn't the screams have sounded muffled? Zimmerman's DNA wasn't found on Martin's hands so was it Zimmerman or Martin screaming?
