12' is three steps away. Could have started to stand up and staggered backwards. Your point? Zimmerman should not have to prove his innocence. The State must prove his guilt. Remember that. Where is the evidence supporting this? I don't see it and i don't think the jurors do either.
...What?...Prove his guilt?....Wait, what?......Think they wish, they woulda paid attention in school?....LOL......

_OK. So you say Martin staggered and fell 6 feet away?
So, can you reconcile above possibility with Zimmerman's statement that he had to slide from underneath Martin's dead body in order to get up?

_If:
1. Martin was on top of Zimmerman while on concrete path and was shot there
2. Martin's body was found 12 feet away from concrete
3. Zimmerman stated that he had to slide from underneath Martin's dead body in order to get up

How do you explain Martin's body ended up on top of Zimmerman on the grass 12 feet away from concrete after the shot?

Would you please show me a scenario where Martin's body would end up on top of Zimmerman 12 feet away from concrete if Trayvon was banging George's head on the cement when he got shot?

#1 and #3 above cannot be reconciled!

Actually, "Wheels" you have it bass ackwards, Zimmerman is innocant until proven guilty, not guilty until proven innocent.

Why does your flawed logic not suprise me, because that has always been your MO.

You've got to realize how stupid you sound. Either that or your so blinded by racism that you refuse to look at the evidence supporting Zimmerman's story. There is NO evidence supporting Zimmerman's guilt. Wake up.
So far all the witnesses for the prosecution are liars, but the low life Martin supporters could care less. The racist haters are out to railroad Zimmerman.

Well, in closing statement, Prosecution is gonna tie Zimmerman's statement with the pictures of Martin's body found 12 feet away from concrete... Self-defense? NOT!

Look at page 4 of Zimmerman's statement to the Sanford Police.

1_Zimmerman said he had to slide from underneath Martin's dead body..

2_Also, Zimmerman said he shot Martin because Trayvon was slamming George's head on concrete

3_George said Martin sat up after he shot him, we would expect both bodies to be near concrete, NOT 12 feet away....

_ Well, the truth as shown in pictures submitted as evidence, Martin's dead body was found about 12 feet away from concrete. So, there is no way Martin could slam George's head on pavement from such distance

Ever been in a fight? Apparently not. It's easy to look back on something and judge it harshly. Otherwise, you would realize that during fights things aren't always crystal clear. You have got to realize that NONE of the evidence incriminates Zimmerman. To exercise self-defense he simply had to fear for his life. He was beaten severely and reasonably was fearful that another blow from the concrete or Martin's hands might result in unconsciousness. Ultimately, in Zimmerman's mind that would equal death. This case is entirely consisted of reasonable doubt. To convict this man would be criminal.

“always”

LOL, George writes cursive just about as well as DeeDee reads it.

Given that he was in business and a recent criminal justice student it seems he'd be more apt to print than use cursive on a police report, just saying.

There is no doubt what was in the pedophile's mind, and it is up to the defense to prove he was in fear of his life.

Not the prosecution.
