Defense Hurdles SO FAR:

Zimmerman was leaning over Trayvon:

The blood on his head flowing forward and not backwards proves it. Also, there was no blood on the back of his jacket collar.

Zimmerman did not squirm from underneath Trayvon:

He didnít have blood, dirt, or grass stains on the back of his jacket

Trayvon did not grab for Zimmermanís gun:

If Trayvon was positioned with his knees near Zimmermanís arms, he couldnít see the gun. If Trayvon did see the gun, he wouldíve had to stretch his right hand across Zimmerman chest and reach behind his own left leg in order to grab the gun.

UNBELIEVABLE!!!

There are bruises on Trayvons hands where he broke Zimmermans nose, then tried to suffocate him by covering his nose, and mouth, There are marks on Zimmerman;s head, and he had a broken nose. There are pictures, and live testimony, and even the first police officer on the scene testified he believed Zimmerman. I think those people are a little smarter then a television watcher. It doesn't matter what you want to believe, only the law matters now, and so far they haven't proven Zimmerman broke one law.

well since that day no one other Peruvian immigrant's half White son has done anything to any black in all of north America, so lets see How ,Many violent crimes were committed by supposedly innocent black punks since then, how many involved use of force against victims, dont wanna talk about that though and every dammed one of them looks just like Oba,as son, you liberals need to quit being so idiotic. its the agitation by leftist scumbags that has promoted a society, where Blacks feel justified in assaulting , raping, murdering, stealing, loafing, using dope and generally being a social [pain in the ass for the White population. Because of White liberals and their color blind conservative friends 37,000 White females were assaulted by these tough guys, cowardly punks who would think nothing of sucker punching and older White guy, just like this worthless animal did.

Martin tried to rape Zimmerman, blacks usually rape old women, handicapped women, but this time tray didn't have any flour to dip rachel in and find the wet spot, so there is proof he tried to rape him.

Your problem is you don't understand DNA evidence. I posted a link, but obviously you didn't read it and adhere to one side of DNA presented.
Keep that wishful thinking though. It's all your side has left.
I understand well enough that DNA transfer from Zimmerman to Martin would be expected if Martin was repeatedly punching Zimmerman's bloody nose. We know Zimmerman's nose was bleeding while he was on top of Trayvon because a drop of George's blood was found around Trayvon's waist area of garment inside the hoodie....

Sequence of events:
1. Martin confronted creepy-ass stalker
2. George attempted to restrain suspect/Martin
3. Martin shoved Zimmerman trying to break away
4. George responded with a aggression
5. Guys started tussling around
6. Zimmerman used MMA technique to put Martin in submissive lock and MMA move caused George to accidentally scrape his scalp on ground while restraining Trayvon with his legs
7. Zimmerman chocking Martin with legs while removing gun from holster
8. Martin saw gun but unable to free self from MMA lock
9. Martin tried to scream for help, because of choking lock, could not use his normal voice to scream louder
10. George shot Trayvon at point blank
11. Gun recoiled injuring nose
12. Nose bleeding started
13. Zimmerman leaning over Martin's body, trying to put Trayvon's fingerprint on gun
14. While getting-off ground, blood drop from injured nose fell on dead body

Voila!

I might also add:

If Trayvon was holding Zimmermanís bloody nose and mouth one would think Zimmermanís blood would've at least gotten on his sleeve and under his nails.

Yet amazingly, blood UNDER Trayvon fingernailsÖ washed away in the rain and his DNA was barely traceable.

However, blood on Zimmermanís EXPOSED areas was visible in the rain and his DNA was very traceable.

Miraculous isnít it?

No, gun recoil would not explain that broken nose. There were injuries to Trayvon's hands. The ground and pound still stands.
The beating may not have been as bad as Zimmerman thought it was, but as the other prosecution witness stated today, you don't have to be in danger of losing your life. Only in fear of losing your life.
and yet with that vicious repeated slamming of GI Janie's head on the concrete until he almost passed out (GI Janie's words...)... he had NO CONCUSSION, NO SKULL FRACTURE.... NOT EVEN A BONE BRUISE. Interesting too, that the gunshot residue pattern on Trayvon indicates the shot was not fired as close as GI Janie claims.... Me think's Janie has some 'splainin' to do.

Try watching the trial. It was proven the shot was point blank range. You have some catching up to do.

The DNA evidence doesn't help the prosecution. A 9mm has very little recoil. While laying on ones back the blood from the nose would go down your throat and that would be why there was not blood on Martin's hands. Thanks for noticing that. You actually helped the defense. And I thought you were ignorant.
Sorry... but the low down on the Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm semi-automatic pistol on gun blogs is that it's not "fun" to shoot because of the recoil.

Sorry. There are marks on Trayvon's hands. There was already one witness that testifies the man on the top was beating on the man being held down, and the man doing the beating was identified as Trayvon. There is also pictures. Half the State's witnesses proved Zimmerman's self defense claim. They never should have seated an all woman jury. Zimmerman should have a jury of his peers. None the less, if they don't acquit it will be a hung jury, because women will insist on the state using law, not racial feelings to reach a verdict.
Nope... one small cut on one of his fingers.... which was in the healing process... so not a result from the incident.

The last time I checked the head was part of the body. Claim debunked. And I have heard that Martin had marks on his hands. Hmmm, wait a second...

Nope, you are wrong. Martin had injuries to his hands.

No, it was closer than that.

You should not use terms that you do not know the meaning of.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Point-blank_rang...

for that gun and the target being Trayvon's torso, you would still be in "Point blank range" at 30 yards or more.
