"David Weinstein, a former prosecutor and Miami-area defense lawyer, cautioned against reading too much into Rao's testimony in a case that centers on Florida's self-defense laws and the justified use of deadly force.
"There is no requirement that you prove that you were injured to any particular degree. Only that you believed that deadly force was necessary to defend yourself from 'imminent death or great bodily harm,'" said Weinstein, who is not involved in the case."

I think it was necessary in light of evaluating whether of not Zim was reasonably in fear of his life.

Is every fight that involves a bloody nose just cause for lethal force?

12 punches is a fantasy, like all your others.
since this self defense shooting, the shelves at stores are bare of ammo and guns.
Your fantasy theory about the reality of getting shot for fighting, will turn out bad for those who think like you with a bang.
If riots break out regarding the release of George Zimmerman, then expect people to shoot back.
I believe that Zim claimed somewhere in the neighborhood of 25-30 facial blows.

Or maybe you agree that he is lying.

The question was for you.

And spending 12+ months attempting to convict George Zimmerman from your laptop is not an answer...is it?

How would you fight for your life? Telekinesis? You use your hands of course. Zimmerman was out for blood by this time, a simple bully trying to prove a point.

"If someone's head is repeatedly slammed against against concrete with great force I would expect lacerations, a lot of injuries that would bleed profusely that would necessitate suturing, so I don't see that in this picture," Rao said.

However, responding to questions by defense attorney Mark O'Mara about whether it was possible to medically exclude the possibility of repeated impacts, Rao conceded it was a possibility.

"Is there any medical evidence to exclude the possibility that the skull was hit on the left side four times?" O'Mara said.

"That's not my opinion, but it could be possible," Rao responded.

Niiiice.

"There's now a really good chance we're being toyed with," said defense attorney Mark O'Mara as the court attempted to switch.

It wasn't clear whether the calls were intended for Pleasants or whether the calls were the product of pranksters. Pleasants began laughing as he was forced to repeatedly decline the calls.

"Nelson ruled that Zimmerman's school records, a police job application and an application for a ride-along with Sanford police officers can be introduced before the jury."

I read that Zimmerman was offered and declined the ride-along.

True. Nor was I...

It seems highly possible that this kid, and that's what he was, was in fear for his life...guaranteed, Zimmerman waved the gun around like an idiot in his face before firing.

So this would mean he was lying about not knowing about the stand your ground law. Zimmerman has just been telling lies from the beginning.

Another day, another prosecution witness helping the defense ;-)

On Wednesday at the George Zimmerman trial, the prosecution called yet another witness who ended up testifying for the defense: Florida Department of Law Enforcement firearm analyst Amy Siewert. The prosecution had contended that George Zimmerman was on top of Trayvon Martin and pressed his gun into Martinís chest before firing and killing him. Siewert testified, however, that there was no forensic evidence that Zimmerman had pressed the gun to Martinís chest. In fact, the gunpowder residue and other material evidence showed that the gun was touched to Martinís shirt, and that Martinís shirt was not pressed to his chest, implying that Martin was on top of Zimmerman and that his shirt was hanging down when Zimmerman shot him.

The state also attempted to maximize the fact that Zimmermanís gun was loaded, including a round in the chamber, before the fight. But Siewert admitted that guns are not of much use unless they are loaded and there is a round in the chamber.
