<quoted text>Uhhh... they are extremely reliable.... 99% reliable. Used in court cases all the time.
Yet these tapes have already been deemed unreliable and will not be used. Try to catch up. It makes a lot of difference when your listening to voices traveling through a wall, then a phone and to a recorder.

<quoted text>There absolutely IS evidence. Trayvon was on the phone. His girl friend heard the entire confrontation. That is why the defence isn't invoking SYG. They know they don't have a prayer.
Try catching up a little. The ho already got caught lying in court. Her testimony if the state decides to call her since she was caught lying will not help. The defense will tear her lying tail apart.

That's ok, son. I didn't expect you to change to begin with so you didn't disappoint in the least!
Yeah denies the facts like the state already said they can't prove Zimmerman attacked Martin, the witnesses saw Martin on top of Zimmerman, Martin autopsy shows injuries to his knuckles but no other injuries except a bullet hole, and Zimmerman's lacerations to the head, and broken nose.

<quoted text>I just can't believe how ridiculous you are! Z followed him for a few seconds for the purpose of providing information on his whereabouts. He stopped as soon as the dispatcher told him, "we don't need you doing that". Zimmerman said he lost him and that was that. There was no stalking, following, harassing or anything. Martin had more than enough time to go home so obviously he wasn't fearful in the least. It was dark and Zimmerman was meeting the police by the back gates and on his way he was jumped by Martin and beaten to a bloody pulp. No one came to his aid as he was screaming for help. There was definitely some monkey business going on by his house because the kid had to have witnessed the entire thing. Strange daddyo had no clue about the activities that occurred right outside his door. Very suspicious.
Really?? Ole GI Janie didn't know the name of one of three streets in the gated community where he lived for THREE FCUKING YEARS?? ROTFALMFAO!!! oh and guess what!! IT HAPPENED TO BE THE STREET HE LIVED ON!!! ROTFALMFAO!!! Funny... that had the cops snickering too.

Ole GI Janie, in his initial statement said that Travyon jumped out at him from some bushes. He stated it THREE TIMES to detective Singleton on 2/26.... yet... the police pointed out to him THERE WERE NO FCUKING BUSHES. Ooooops!

Beaten to a bloody pulp you say?? Heh heh heh!!! Not from the arrest pictures I saw. And funny.... how Trayvon's body was found a significant distance from Janie's car. Didn't follow him?? Ya... right!

What do you mean "finally?" I don't think the prosecution will be able to get a conviction on 2nd degree murder.

You have to remember that right is a two way street.

Right now Zimmerman supporters present it as a one way street based on the "last man standing" scenario.

Police were doing their job. You have to remember. This was a private gated community.

Still, I don't know what you're point is.

If he punched Zimmerman in the face and broke his nose. Martin certainly did something illegal. Florida law says one must believe they were in serious danger of grievous bodily harm or death to use deadly force. Even if the prosecution shows that despite the beating Zimmerman wasn't in danger of grievous bodily harm or death, that isn't good enough. They must convince the jury that Zimmerman didn't believe he was in danger of grievous bodily harm or death. How do they do that? Let's face facts Zimmerman was pleading for help for a bit over forty seconds while Martin tried to bang his head on the ground which should convince most any one on the jury that his belief was justified.
If a round is chambered you just pull the trigger on the Kel Tec and it is such a small handgun that it would not be that difficult to get out of a belt holster even in that situation.
Well, when someone points a gun at you... I do believe that would qualify, in any jury's mind, as "belief they were in serious danger of grievous bodily harm or death". Thank you... you just pointed out Trayvon was well within his rights to defend himself.

I have absolutely no doubt in the world that the street fighting football player was stronger than the out of shape nearly 30 year old man. Are you high?
And yet no one initially identified Zimmerman as the block captain or by name.

It's nice you have no doubt son. Unfortunately for you, it's not admissible in this case.

if the prosecutor approaches you with a plea bargain, you know you have won and want to go forward, if they had a case they don t offer a plea bargain, that would be dumb indeed. unless they accepted some graft

Ole GI Janie pleading for help??!!! Nope... two independent audio forensic experts have already concluded with out doubt that the person pleading for help on the 911 tape was NOT GI Janie. This isn't even up for debate anymore.... it's FACT.

lol! Well gee son, if you're telling the truth and Zimmerman is telling the truth on this point...

.... why is Zimmerman still alive even WITH a loaded weapon????

And as one poster already pointed out, the weapon could already have had one in the chamber!

Uh oh... looks like your personal opinions are unraveling the case for you!

'cept, Christine, there's enough physical evidence and enough inconsistencies in GI Janie's multiple versions of his statement to indicate that's NOT how it went down.
