Judicial Bias? Highly Contentious Exchange Between Judge Debra Nelson and Zimmerman Defense Attorney West … Judge Nelson Badgers Defendant as Defense Attorney Objects … “OVER -RULED”!

 

George Zimmerman Murder trial: A fair and impartial trial, eh?

Yesterday, prior to the conclusion of the defense’s case, Judge Debra Nelson rudely and inappropriate created a highly contentious exchange between herself and defense attorney West. Judge Debra Nelson, prior to the conclusion of the defense’s case asked directly George Zimmerman whether he wished to testify. Defense attorney West objected … he was over-rued by Nelson. Judge Nelson again asked the question and defense counsel objected again. Judge Nelson then decided to act like she was the Gestapo and bully the defense and George Zimmerman. UNREAL. Where are the judicial misconduct charges against Judge Nelson? This was so out of line and improper by the judge.

Sorry, but how can anyone get a fair trial when you have a judge acting like this?  Talking about creating a hostile environment.

From Mediaite:

Have you made a decision as to whether or not you want to testify in this case?” Judge Nelson asked Zimmerman after reminding him of his rights both to remain silent and speak on his behalf.

After two objections from defense attorney Don West, Nelson said rather testily, “Overruled. The Court is entitled to inquire if Mr. Zimmerman’s determination as to whether or not he wants to testify.”

“I assume it would depend on how long the recesses are, your Honor,” Zimmerman said, in one of the only moments he has spoken at his own trial. “At the end of the day…”

“If your attorneys have finished with two witnesses before the end of the day, do you think you would know then whether or not you want to testify?” Nelson said.

“Speaking on Mr. Zimmerman’s behalf—” West tried.

“I am asking your clients questions,” Nelson said, and when West again tried to object, Nelson sounded exasperated. “Your objection is overruled.” She finished by telling Zimmerman, “I will give you more time to discuss this with your attorneys.”

      [...] whipping the public into a frenzy and cry “RACISM”. The Gateway Pundit shows even more judicial bias as Judge Nelson inappropriately goes after the defense and George Zimmerman in a bullying [...]

      the protest today was and is funded by our tax dollars. the racist white house and the racist eric holder just want to see someone die for the murder of a young thug. i hear nothing of the girl murdered in chicago by her own color.
      i take it that black on black killing is acceptable as everyday life in the black community.
      just imagine if Martin had been a white kid murdered by a black thug. it would have never made the news. all white and mexican people should riot in the streets daily against the black racists.
