I don't think it's so hard to figure out what is happening. What is happening is this: both the murder and purjery charges are in the hands of the U.S. judicial system in the state of Florida, as they should be. A young man is dead at the hands of another man in a case where it is not yet proven whether it was in self defense or not -- the charge of murder indicates that the prosecution does not believe it was in self defense. A person allegedly lied under oath to a judge about financial matters, a considerable amount of money. Judges and juries will decide in both cases. It's not a perfect system but this is how it is supposed to work in the United States of America.
