If by know you don’t know, allow me to inform you that Mr. O’Mara is the Lawyer for George Zimmerman and he spoke at the GRPC 2012. The Media was all drooling over the possibility that Mark O’Mara would engage on advertising in favor of his client but he killed that upfront with the obvious: It would be stupid as not all the testimonies and evidence are in or even known and because it would be unethical. Some people’s dreams were shattered…Oh well.
Mr. O’Mara did a fantastic job explaining Florida’s laws regarding self-defense, Castle Doctrine and Stand Your Ground complementing the two heavy hitters that came before him: Eric Friday who is counsel for Florida Carry and Jon Gutmacher who wrote Florida Firearms Law, the best book about the gun ownership in Florida.
Before he was finished I realized that George Zimmerman couldn’t be better represented. O’Mara’s delivery is calm but not sleepy, full of facts but far from boring and you connect with what he is saying rather easily. Grant you he was in a room full of Gun People but we are a mistrusting bunch by definition and lawyers are high on the watch list. I was told that he is a force to be reckoned with in court and he will politely destroy the opposition’s case. He is also very much respected among LEOs who call on him to review cases of deadly force.
I was told that Angela Corey will be prosecuting this case herself. From what info I have collected about her, she is not gonna have a good time in court against O’Mara. If the Zimmerman trial goes on TV, I am gonna record every bit of it as I think it will be a great learning experience.
Now, if I could only have Nancy Grace automatically muted every time she opens her mouth……..
