(Newser) – If a special prosecutor does decide to bring charges against George Zimmerman, he'll turn himself in, his lawyer promised today. Zimmerman is currently in hiding thanks to the controversy surrounding his killing of Trayvon Martin, but "he's not hiding from the authorities," Craig Sonner said today. If police need to contact Zimmerman, they can do so through Sonner. "If he is asked, he will turn himself in. There's not going to be a manhunt or anything like that."

Special prosecutor Angela Corey says she'll announce soon whether she intends to charge Zimmerman. Corey took over the investigation after the state attorney removed himself from the case "with the intent of toning down the rhetoric." Sonner says he's preparing to defend Zimmerman under the assumption he will be charged, Reuters reports.

Here is an easy test everybody can take: 1.) place your head against a surface (you can be standing, sitting or lying) with your neck stiffened as if you do not want any further damage to the injury that you sustained from a surprised blow to the head that knocked you to the ground (remember that you are defending yourself from further injury with both hands free because you are able to used a gun to defend yourself) 2.) take a finger and constantly draw a circle around the area of your head like Zimmerman's supposed injury 3.) bang your head gently against the surface while your finger continues to circle the supposed injury [remember that your hands are free to help defend your self, otherwise you would not be able to use your gun, lest a 140 lb Trayvon had you (who out weigh Trayvon by a 100 lbs) pinned down] 4.) now close your eyes and picture your surface being a concrete pavement Honestly tell me, if the photo shown and your imagery agree with Zimmerman's claim of self defense?

Is that "B" Nancy Grace still on the air. If so has she convicted him yet, if she's not on then the airwaves are the winner. Course she's always done her convicting and crying in cases with kids and woman. She's probably not interested in dead male black teenagers. Hell across the country they're a dime a dozen any day of the week and it's not hardly front page unless other than a black shoots them. Sharpton and others should pay attention to all these killings instead of only the ones that will get them the greatest tv facetime.

It looks like George Zimmerman was acting in self defense.
