Hey folks,

Well, we already knew from Chris Serino’s testimony yesterday that he was under considerable outside pressure to bring charges against Zimmerman:

Zimmerman Trial Day 6 – Analysis & Video – State’s witness Chris Serino seriously undermines charge

We also know from the FBI report of their interview with him that he felt such charges were unwarranted:

Zimmerman Trial: Evidentiary Flashback: Investigator Serino Tells FBI He Was Pressured to Bring Charges

But did you also know that Investigator Serino, a law enforcement office with 30 years of experience and obviously deemed competent enough by his superiors to lead a cross-departmental investigation of the Trayvon Martin shooting, was demoted to patrolman after he failed to recommend second degree murder charges against George Zimmerman?
