90. Again, the media is irrelevant.

I'm a white guy from Philly, and I agree that the cops screwed up the OJ trial, far more than the media did.

I did not say that no forensic evidence was collected ... I said that I suspect that everything that should have been collected was not. Its already been reported that tests for alcohol and drugs were performed on Martin and that they were NOT done on Zimmerman. That alone suggests that they did not do all of the forensics that should be done.

At least you admit that you don't know if they took Zimmerman's clothes. I hope they did, but I have yet to hear any report that they actually did.

Since I did not mention Richard Jewel, I'm not sure why you mention him. The cases are not similar in anyway. Zimmerman killed Martin. He admits to it. No one denies it. Jewel was accused of planting the bomb, and trying to act like a hero. The media was wrong, and he was exonerated.

See the difference there? There will be no Eric Rudolph who is found to have actually killed Martin. For your Jewel comparison to make sense, there would need to be some question as to who killed Martin. There is none. Zimmerman killed Martin.

Finally, I'm not sure how you get the media to STFU. The media exists to talk. Although I did enjoy a recent clip in which Bill O'Reilly screamed that a judge should order that a GAG order imposed ... even though no one had been charged or arrested at the time ... that was pretty funny.
