Rocking & Rolling

Two 8+ earthquakes off of Sumatra, and minor ones all around the ‘Ring of Fire’. Fortunately they weren’t in the ‘tsunami zone’, but people went to higher ground as soon as they felt the first one hit.

It is probably just the fact that they are getting reported now, but it seems like there have been a lot of big earthquakes in the last decade.

Central Florida is shaking from the arrest of George Zimmerman on a charge of Second Degree Murder. I have to assume that the prosecutor has found something in the autopsy that led to the charge, because by all accounts the initial investigation really lacked ‘professionalism’.

State Attorney Angela Corey is reputed to be a very tough and experienced prosecutor. She wouldn’t bring the charges if she didn’t think she had a case, even if the case was going to be difficult to prove. I was actually expecting Manslaughter if there was a charge, but she is maxing out. Murder Two is a life sentence, while Manslaughter is 30 years.

The important thing for all concerned is that the case is going to be tried in court, not the media, and will be decided by a jury. I wasn’t there, I don’t know what happened, but when you have someone shot to death, there really should be a public trial to determine the facts.
