And does anyone think bringing in a black dummy to be on the bottom in their demonstrations wasn't intended to confuse the jury about who was really on the bottom?



    I really think that in this isolated instance, not clamming up right away actually helped Zimmerman's case. For some inexplicable reason, the prosecution brought every interview he did into evidence. They established the prima facie case for self defense, they showed that GZ remained largely consistent on the most significant points, and they doubled the issues that they have to meet a beyond a reasonable doubt standard on. More importantly from the defense perspective, they eliminated the need for Zimmerman to get on the stand to get his story out, thus subjecting himself to cross.

    99 times out of 100 I would agree that a (potential) defendant should just shut the heck up. It's just a weird anomaly that the way the state presented its case is what repaired that error for Zimmerman in this case.

    Otherwise, great analysis BC. I much prefer being in near total agreement with you than the alternative.

    The prosecutor played the Hannity interview and the reenactment video in closing arguments much to GZ's detriment. He cherry picked anything that supported his case. That's the danger in speaking to police without counsel. GZ's discrepancies were minor. Discrepancies are quite normal after a violent experience. Psychological and physiological reactions make recall very tough. And the prosecutor knows this. The jury is likely inexperienced with life and death fights. Six women may buy into they hindsight argument of what one could have or should have done.

    What is SOP for jury over the weekend? Will they be required to work towards reaching a verdict this evening?
    If it doesn't fit, FORCE it! If it breaks then it needed to be replaced anyway.

    I heard a pundit say that since they're sequestered they'll continue deliberations. If they reach a verdict everyone is called-in to court.

    That's what I thought. Therefore we may have a verdict tonight or tomorrow.

    Old saying... pick the right jury and you'll get the right verdict. Would six able-bodied men think differently than six women with kids?
    .
    My prediction is not guilty on second degree murder and either not guilty or hung jury on manslaughter.

    O'Mara isn't so strong. About as much passion as a social studies teacher. Forget Thomas Jefferson, bring up the fact the GZ claimed to be screaming for help BEFORE he knew a 911 call was recorded with someone screaming for help. If you believe that you must acquit.

    New Black Panthers: “Unrest All Over America” if Zimmerman Acquitted

    A quote being attributed to New Black Panthers leader Samir Shabazz by numerous Internet sites states, “This time we’re doing it right… This time we’re not burning down our communities. This time we’re going out to Whitey’s suburbs and burning down HIS community. We’re going to make Whitey feel the pain.”

    Apparently prosecutor John Guy is unaware that many women react negatively to a man yelling at them.
