Just so you know, John Good is anything but the way you portray him. I've known him since we were 5 years old. He is a humble man with nothing to prove. Absolutely not racist. When did it become racist to report the truth? TM was beating up GZ. That's a fact. If you think that's racist, you are totally ignorant.<quoted text>
This hotdog testifies to an eyewitness account diametrically opposed to the account of witness who came in with an interpreter, you know, the architect lady who had immigrated to the USA from Colombia, South America.
Of course, most lawyers and social scientists realize that when persons a, b, c, d and so on witness an exciting event, their accounts of it will vary, sometimes one completely contradicting another. So eyewitness testimony has to be taken with a grain of salt. It is not reliable. But it is helpful sometimes to corroborate the forensic evidence such as Dr. Bao's testimony that the stippling on the body of Trayvon Martin showed that the gun was fired from an intermediate range and that the bullet was a straight-through right angle shot into the body of Trayvon Martin.
You and I have seen only parts of the evidence, and so the entirety of the evidence is for the jury. Thus your statement that John Good's testimony is conclusive of the guilt of the dead boy and the innocence of Zimmerman is rather naive and absurd.
Just watching this segment of Good's testimony, though, tells me that he is a hotdog who hems and haws and parses. Those jurors are not dummies. They've not been fooled by this witness, as you have. You can watch Good hotdogging it here as Z's lawyer tries his damnedest to make him his witness while Good keeps hemming and hawing, checking himself and backing away from previous statements, going vague all of a sudden, and trying to make subtle changes to his previous position. This is not an objective witness, what with "MMA" and "ground and pound" in his performance. Body language experts will tell you that Good is not a credible witness. He's a hotdog, a shill for a point of view which is likely racist, likely a person who would identify with Z, not with M, and who colors his testimony accordingly. Of course, as with all the other eyeball witnesses, no one is really able to see well because of the rain and darkness.

You haven't followed the testimony or the evidence have you? You are missing a few key points in all the hearsay you're basing your statements on you airheaded shill.

"...far more than you have."
Yet another of your sound proven facts. You know for a fact that you have watched more of the trial than I have? I don't think so. You yourself have just proven yourself as not very credible with this post. Case closed. No sense pointing out facts to someone incapable of grasping the difference between fact and "I've watched far more of the trial than you have" when you don't even know who I am.
No more responses for you Pinkface. Go choke your chicken.

I predicted the same for the very same reasons. This is not a racial issue per se. The verdict was the correct one simply because, after watching the entire trial start to finish, I did not believe the prosecution proved BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT that Zimmerman did it. We cannot start throwing out guilty verdicts just because the black community or any other community wants it.
The system worked as it was intended to work.

Let's not cave to the race card in EVERY instance coming and going. I do not believe Martin's life was expendable. I am sorry it happened. Given all the facts presented in a court of law, the JURY found Zimmerman not guilty. I happen to agree with their verdict. That does NOT mean the jury was against Martin and for Zimmerman. It does mean anything racist at all.
It means the prosecution did not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Zimmerman should be found guilty. Simple as that.
I agree with the verdict 100%.

Yeah I thought it then and still think it. The prosecution's witnesses were GIFTS to the defense.

Shiping Bao is a disgrace to the medical profession. He acted like an idiot on the witness stand. Now he's saying the prosecution told him to act that way. He should have been fired. Moreover, he should be charged with obstruction of justice and perjury. The murder trial was nothing but a kangaroo court. Is it possible to put the trial on trial?
