Meet Kiera Wilmot, a 16-year-old student in Bartow, Florida. Before last week, Bartow High School Principal Ron Pritchard tells WTSP-TV, she had "never been in trouble before. Ever."

But then, the station reports, she mix[ed] household chemicals in a tiny 8-ounce water bottle, causing the top to pop off, followed by billowing smoke in [a] small explosion. Wilmot's friends and classmates said it was "a science project gone bad, that she never meant to hurt anyone."

George Zimmerman's judge must step aside because of bias, a Florida appellate court ruled Wednesday.

The ruling means a new judge will soon preside over Zimmerman's second-degree murder case in the killing of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin, according to a website set up by Zimmerman's defense team. Zimmerman's lawyer Mark O'Mara filed a motion in July to disqualify Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. But Lester denied the motion, finding it "legally insufficient." O'Mara appealed to Florida's Fifth District Court of Appeal, which disagreed with Lester's finding.

The George Zimmerman defense has recently gotten a lucky break.

Angela Corey, Florida's state attorney and the prosecutor against Zimmerman, has been indicted by a citizens' grand jury for allegedly falsifying an arrest warrant and the complaint that led to Zimmerman being charged with the second-degree murder of Trayvon Martin. The indictment accuses Corey of allegedly withholding photographs of Zimmerman's head after the incident. Also, Corey allegedly falsely signed an arrest warrant under oath without including the pictures as evidence. Critics claim that Corey rushed the arrest warrant through because activists were rallying around the Trayvon Martin shooting, demanding that Zimmerman be charged with murder. Critics argue that Corey was attempting to secure a reelection with the support of the activists.

Zimmerman's suing NBC, Martin's parents are (probably) suing Zimmerman - isn't it time that someone sued the one actor in this case whose motives were most provably malign?

Maybe this is a first small step in sending Corey to join Mike Nifong in disgraced-former-prosecutor obscurity. Ben Kruidbos, Corey's former director of information technology, was fired after testifying at a pre-trial hearing on June 6 that prosecutors failed to turn over potentially embarrassing evidence extracted from Martin's cell phone to the defense, as required by evidence-sharing laws. "We will be filing a whistleblower action in (Florida's Fourth Judicial District) Circuit Court," said Kruidbos' attorney Wesley White, himself a former prosecutor who was hired by Corey but resigned in December because he disagreed with her prosecutorial priorities. He said the suit will be filed within the next 30 days...

Gee, George, sorry we pretty much declared you a racist in front of all of America before having all the facts, but Obama's all-in on this one and we're all-in for Obama and since you're a registered Democrat, we think you'll understand.

George Zimmerman, charged in Florida with shooting an unarmed black teenager, sued NBC Thursday, charging an edited 911 tape defamed him.

In a complaint filed in Seminole County in Florida, Zimmerman said the network edited the tape to make him appear racist, CNN reported. Two former reporters were also named as defendants. "NBC saw the death of Trayvon Martin not as a tragedy but as an opportunity to increase ratings, and so set about to create the myth that George Zimmerman was a racist and predatory villain," the complaint says.

George Zimmerman's judge is biased and should be disqualified from any further role in his murder case, defense lawyer Mark O'Mara argues in a new motion filed Friday.

Sanford, Fla., Judge Kenneth Lester showed his bias by making "gratuitous, disparaging remarks" about Zimmerman in Lester's Order Setting Bail last week, Zimmerman's Motion to Disqualify states. Lester also makes opinionated remarks about prosecutors' evidence, threatens contempt proceedings, and "advocates for Mr. Zimmerman to be prosecuted for additional crimes," O'Mara argues in the motion, which his legal team posted online. Is that sufficient to get Judge Lester disqualified?

George Zimmerman's judge will not step down because the motion seeking to disqualify him is "legally insufficient," the judge wrote in his order.

Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. on Wednesday denied a motion by Zimmerman's defense team that sought to disqualify the judge because of alleged bias, Reuters reports. The motion accused Judge Lester of making "gratuitous, disparaging remarks," among other alleged misdeeds, when he set Zimmerman's bail at $1 million in July. So how did the judge reach his ruling? It may seem a bit strange, but under Florida's Rules of Judicial Administration, the same judge who is accused of bias gets to decide whether he is in fact too biased to preside over the case in front of him.

It's a bad movie that you might have seen before. It tends to show up whenever an advocate of voluntary cooperation explains how society could operate without state coercion.

Right on cue, the zombies from "Night of the Living Statists" rear their heads and mindlessly intone, "But if there's no government, who will build the roads?!" The zombies can't hear your response, so it's useless to try to give them facts and explain how things could be done in a way that's better for everyone if roads and other such things were provided as private services rather than as coercive government monopolies. For those who are open to the facts, though, is there any evidence that people can actually cooperate voluntarily for their own interests? As a matter of fact, there's quite a bit of evidence of that.
