Can you please explain why this info is relevant?
by JP Bill / February 8, 2013 12:28 AM PST
prosecutors have unlocked a great deal more information from Trayvon Martin's cellphone, including satellite-tracking information that shows where it was in the days leading up to his shooting.

Other than the fact the prosecutors have that information...I won't refer to it as evidence...BECAUSE, What does it have to do with the shooting? I'm open for suggestions.

without seeing the "evidence"
by James Denison / February 8, 2013 4:35 AM PST

how can we know for sure? Anything the prosecution has in the way of evidence, they are supposed to share with the defense. That's the way it's supposed to work.

I don't know how it works in Canada

but here in the USA, the prosecution is REQUIRED to turn over all evidence even if it is evidence that shows the defendant could be found not guilty.

The state is within "the letter of the law" in the way it's handling the release of cellphone records and information about the young Miami woman, O'Mara wrote

The Prosecution is following the law...Zs lawyer agrees...what's YOUR problem?

here and elsewhere (FoxNoise) about this trial and other issues but this one has the nut brigade out in full force. It's nice to see people lined up on the Latino's side rather than trying to hang him.

And Toni, since you haven't asked. Discovery is part of the trial process here too.

I have been 'informed' when I didn't ask for information. "Enlightenment" comes when you realize you have 'evolved' in your way of thinking about something.

since you can't seem to remember that I have already 'informed' SE a number of times over the years. I'm not here to make your 'job' of stalking my posts easier.

I know she was a bit of a camp follower usually Navy bases...so I'm going to stick her in Virginia..I hope she likes it there.

I like Virginia and expecially visiting
by Steven Haninger / February 9, 2013 9:56 PM PST

the Shenandoah Valley and the state's many parks. They're great for their vistas and good hiking. You might give the place a visit sometime. Who knows...you could end up staying.

We stayed at the Skyland Lodge on our way to a beach in S.C. one year and woke up to pea soup fog and evidence of bears rifling through the outdoor garbage cans. We've traveled I-81 from Hagerstown, MD. to Johnson City, Tenn. What a gorgeous countryside when you can see it. I can see why so many from Scotland chose to settle there during earlier times.

That lodge is the reason

I decided in 1972 to move here......(there ya go, JP)....I woke at 5:30 AM, wrapped in a blanket and sat on the deck overlooking the Shenandoah Valley fog and watched it lift up to the most beautiful sight I had ever seen before that. I'm not in that area, but still in the Blue Ridge Mtns........made the move in 1989 during one of the worst blizzards in history...over four feet. LOL

We hit the Skyline Drive in Fort Royal
by Roger NC / February 10, 2013 1:20 AM PST

once, couldn't see much, and seemed to be getting thicker as the morning went on instead of later.

So when we got the exit near Luray Caverns we got off there. Now for a commercially developed cavern that was a fantastic tour. Maybe a little too "improved" for some that want a more natural (rough) cave tour.

The organ made from stalatites there was amazing. The work to tune all those columns had to be painstaking, even if some purists would decry doing such to natural formations.

(NT) I agree re: amazing 'organ'
