I would lay odds they've already determined the gun position from the entry wound....and direction of travel. Not to mention already looked at powder residue to determine gun location. Traygone supporters have gone from the Z-man chasing him down to shoot him...to holding the the gun in front of his own face. How stupid. Like someone else posted....9mm have minimal kick and recoil.

I've only been able to watch a little each day but I have seen enough to agree with you, Zimmerman will pay for murdering Trayvon.
The convicts are gonna love his fat ass.
He will learn fear, the kind poor Trayvon felt as he was begging for his life.
You obviously live in a warped little hateful racist world of your own. You haven't been watching the same trial as the rest of the country ...not to mention the jurors.

Z-man is gonna walk....and it makes your racist head spin.

Mr. Zimmerman luckily had a 9mm Glock
and The brutal THUG that attacked him is now dead.
It wasn't a Glock. It was a Kel-Tech9 which sells for about half of what a Glock sells for. Id go Glock anyday. The market has been flooded with 9s in the last decade or so. The cartridge is way over rated. Suitable for punishing poodles nothing more. Oh AND thugs jumping out of the bushes on occasion.

Also, Obama has agreed to with his Homeland Security fuhrette Napolitano and the ones who pull the strings on the comittees to allow 15 thousand Russian troops on our soil in case there are any problems. They are supposedly here now. They will have no problem shooting Americans. They are traitors in Washington. And many are controlled by others.
There are tens of thousands of American citizens who would venture to take a pot shot at a drone if they saw one.

Zimmerman will be free by the end of the month Hell the defense has had it's case handed to them by an inept prosecutor....he didn't have much to work with though, so he probably did the best he could with the poor case Corey dropped in his lap
It was Corey who initiated it. She should be held accountable for malicious prosecution. The prosecution never had a case...even Perry Mason would look foolish. The defense is not very good and the judge is biased which should give the Zimmerman team some concern. Hopefully, the jury isn't filled with those who lack common sense.

Martin immediately went on the defensive in a violent manner when was ASKED what he was doing and attacked Zimmerman, which means (in the way I interpret it) that he was doing something wrong. So Zimmerman was doing his job as Neighborhood watch. And if you disagree with me or even agree with me that is your right but, I ask you this donít get your news from one source! No matter what media outlet it is the will make the story sound in their favor for their political agenda, to be a well rounded citizen you must get both sides and then base your opinion off that!

Sharpton is a racist and a marxist.
Marxism is a color of communism and communism is the enemy of the United States.
Communism is our only enemy.
Everything the United States fights against is a color of communism and the roots of it.We are a nation under god.
He is our commander.
He is yours too.
Obama don't listen to him.
He wants to be your MASTER
------IMO------
God wants you to be free.

How is it racist for Negroes to whine after somebody shot one of their own in apparent cold-blood and then local law-enforcement operatives swept the whole thing under the rug, as if the Negro kid was worst than one of Michael Vicks's dogs?

Yeah, you forgot to add that the Leprechaun, the Unicorn and Trayvon were teaming up on poor George. And, them racist Negroes never talked about the dead body of the armed Leprechaun found near Martin's body.

That's why the progressives hate Fox News. Fox is the only network that even dares to give the other side of the story. Their hatred for Fox News is off the charts....because after you get the whole truth of the matter it's easy to see right through the progressive agenda....and they don't like that!
How dare those conservatives do that!....humm, one channel?...lol.
Ef these racist progressives!
Fox is totally dishonest about politics, yet their trial coverage has been excellent...separate issues....

She has immunity, unfortunately. Zimmerman should sue Crump and the poverty pimps for getting the residents of Fla. all worked up for no reason other than Martin was black.
If people didn't create their own stereotype, Zimmerman may not have been apprehensive when Martin accosted him.
Every Riot in recent history was not because white people are happy or unhappy. I hope Sanford is still standing when Zimmerman is Acquitted. A lot more Trayvons will get wasted if they riot
