    Dershowitz teaches Criminal Law at Harvard, so his credentials as a legal scholar are solid. To those who see challenges to the case as right wing, Dershowitz, whose background is both in criminal and civil liberties law, cannot by any stretch of the imagination be seen as right wing.

    A 6 minute interview, definitely worth watching.
    http://www.foxnews.com/on-air/huckabee/index.html

    Commenting on the evidence just released:
    Prosecutor aware of most of the evidence and "made a deliberate, willful, unethical, unprofessional, and illegal decision to withhold that evidence, not from you, me, and the media, but from the courts, and from the affidavit... "

    From a few weeks ago:

    Dershowitz: Fire Prosecutor in Trayvon Martin Case
    http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/Dershowitz-Trayvon-Martin-fire/2012/05/04/id/438098
    “She has a terrible reputation in Florida for over-charging and being political and holding her finger to the wind and seeing which way the wind is blowing,” said Dershowitz, who has been an outspoken critic of the handling of the case.

    “The prosecutor has acted irresponsibly by charging second-degree murder in a case where the evidence just doesn’t seem to support that verdict.”

    Dershowitz is a crank that jumped the shark a long time ago.

    Yeah figures Christian would call him a crank... possibly because he's Jewish? (Turnabout being fair play)

    I've said this before: it's degrading and distasteful---it diminishes the dignity of the legal process---by idly talking about such a grave case as it in progress.

    Prof Dershowitz is entitled to his opinion.

    It would be good if convictions did not occur in the press, but it also appears that the prosecution has been influenced by the publicity, and Dershowitz's comments are appropriate to be said, whether or not you agree with them.

    He does NOT teach 'Florida criminal law'. his credentials in Florida legal matters are sorely lacking.

    The prosecutor was hand selected for this case by the REPUBLICAN Governor of the State of Florida..icon_wink.gif

    It only appears that way to Zimmerman defenders... The rest of us see a poorly handled investigation that required a special prosecutor to satisfy public outcry. icon_rolleyes.gif

    What murderer is Dershowitz trying to get off this time? Is it still Claus von Bulow or some other sociopath?

    This just in: "Trayvon Martin prosecutor says she doesn't give a flying fuck what Alan Dershowitz thinks."

    Fortunately Ms. Corey is going to have her turn before the Florida Bar Association to defend her credentials in light of the affidavit that was filed with the circuit court.

    Unfortunately for the race- and gun-obsessed Zimmerman fans, Ms. Corey is going to have her turn before a jury to present all of her evidence, and not just that leaked by Zimmerman's attorneys.
