So I’ve read O’Mara will be asking for a continuance and naturally people speculate as will I.
Will it be granted?
I think he’ll ask only for a month rather than the long period of time he asked for before which was denied. As far as I understand a judge can grant continuances for as long as they want, I don’t think there are any rules governing it and it can potentially be continued on a monthly basis for years.
But why will it be granted? Ahh, the ever illusive why. Why would this judge who has been hostile to the defense and favorable to the state and even Crump, who has already denied a continuance, who is fanatical about her scheduling, suddenly be so kind to the defense now?
Because if the atmosphere is too passionate and level of hate too great in the masses determined by the USDOJ/CRD&CRS and other entities then they will stretch this thing out as long as they feel necessary.

“Quite a bit has been going on in Sanford and there are a lot of people that are angry about things that have been going on in the city,” said Faye Henderson of the Sanford Museum and Welcome Center.
@0:32 in the video “I think it has come to the point ‘this is it'”
What is “this”? “Trayvon Martin for many represents all of the unsolved murders in Sanford where residents feel police didn’t do enough.”
At the memorial in the center of Sanford, the names of the victims of unresolved murders are prominently displayed, with Martin’s at the top.

She’ll be at that Department of Justice meeting Tuesday, she said, in part because local pastors are part of an ongoing effort “so we can try to make sure there are no riots” if Zimmerman is cleared following a “stand your ground” hearing or acquitted at trial.
And if history is any guide then the year that has passed is not long enough, just ask L.A.. And I don’t even think they had Twitter back then, lolz.
