Reader, you're still in activist mode and in denial of how this is going to go down.
The reality of it still is that the prosecution puts its case forward, while the defense only has to poke holes in it. Furthermore, the defense goes last so what they present will be freshest in the minds of the jury.
The jury, like most people especially in the Orlando area, will have a strong sentiment for the right to defend yourself.
Juries also tend to have strong sentiments about killing unarmed kids.

Bob--you should take a look at this:

As I am understanding it, the pre-trial immunity hearing applies to the Stand Your Ground laws. O'Mara has said repeatedly that this is not a Stand Your Ground case--saying that Zimmerman had not opportunity to flee--but simply a routine self-defense case.

I'm still not so clear on how self-defense would play out in court during the trial--particularly if O'Mara wants to keep Zimmerman off the stand, which is most likely a good idea.

Couple a problems there, fella.
The medical evidence is not particularly strong. Broken noses are not necessarily clear-cut diagnoses. Z. never sought an X-ray.
There is a late-surfacing, out of the chain of custody color-photo that shows blood on the tip, upper lip, mouth, some smearing on the cheek, and some possible swelling to one side. The swelling does not appear in the photo taken at the police station.
"Bashed head" is a spectacularly non-medical term. I believe that the terminology appearning in both the EMT report and the follow-up with Z's doc the next day is something more like 1/2" laceration to the back of the head. Not consistent with Zimmerman's description of multiple (10 or more) violent (and unprovoked) bangs against the concrete.
But--without Z. on the stand, how will that story even make it into the evidence presented to the jury?
seems Trayvons girlfriend caught in a lie on national TV.

Pretty sure that NBC will be able to argue that the legal expenses derive from the act of killing someone, not anything that they did. And I challenge you to find anyone from the state to say, well, we only charged him because there was a public outcry.

And Zimmerman hasn't been in jail beyond a few days since this began--prior to the first court appearance, and then again when it came out that he had lied to the court about his finances.

As far as "blurring out the bloody head shots," I really don't think that happened. If you look at the police head shots taken at the station as a part of their evidence gathering, it's pretty consistent with what is seen in the security video. The wounds. while they bled, were both very minor and absolutely non-life-threatening.
You smell delicious. And you sound brilliant. Bless your smell-good, genius heart. Love -no one.

Gotta go beyond the headlines, RS.

In her interview with police a question was posed about whether she went to the funeral or wake. She said know, and the follow up--a response to Crump's portrayal of her extreme grief--was "but you went to the hospital or somewhere, right?" Her response, under oath, was "um, yeah."

O'Mara subpoenaed 6 months of follow-up medical records (excessive don't you agree?), and the state responded that there are no medical records.

Easy to resolve--if introduced by defense--and hardly material to the case at hand. Also, despite some extraordinary focus and conjecture regarding this witness, she has never been the lynchpin of the case. The forensic evidence speaks far more clearly.
