You can bet she will deny it, even if just to keep racial harmony in Sanford, FL. But the prosecution side was weak, wimpy and assclowny, to say the least. They went out with a whimper too with that last one. That means it can only get better for Zim from here.
Do you think this is a "show trial" meant just to keep the peace? In other words that they looked and decided a trial was cheaper than race riots, so they went ahead with it knowing Zim would probably not get convicted.
It's damn hard to prove "wannabe cop syndrome". You can't read a person's mind. Whereas anyone can see that being jumped in the dark & beaten might result in serious injury or death. They were not able to unravel that version. In fact, they supported in with several witnesses.... prosecution witnesses! You can't "unring" that bell.
I think the prosecution did their job. They presented the FACTS of the case for the jury to evaluate objectively. They did it with trying to badger witnesses or elicit responses other than their truthful facts or opinions.

The defense routinely badgered, twisted and tried to get witnesses to say things did not say or mean.

I think the jury was able to see through the manipulations by the defense team. I know what people are saying and what they want to believe, but I think the prosecution did a far better job of presenting the facts of what happened, and that is what they are supposed to do. The defense looked much more desperate in their cross-examination tactics.

Ultimately, it doesn't matter what we think. It will be up to the six-woman jury and what they think and decide.

Am I the only one who thinks the prosecution did poorly? I'd rather see a vigilante set free than have him convicted on a hunch, flimsy evidence or for racial harmony. That's out of respect for future persons on trial, not for any regard for Zim or what he did. He should not have been carrying a gun. Damn jerk caused this by being an friggin' idiot. But if we sent all the idiots to jail there'd be more inside than out.(Not too sure I wouldn't do a few years myself!)
Howdy, yup its what we all call a real tragedy. Like the young cowpoke who rides thru a herd that's been rustled time and time again and gets spotted by some testy hard barked cowboys. Or the three gents at the Ox-Bow incident who couldn't prove their innocents in the face of overwhelming contrary evidence.
No one really wins, the only thing we can do is learn and hope that if a situation like this comes up in our lifetime. We can remember to be merciful patient human beings and do unto others as we would want them to do unto us.

overruled. You may proceed to show how the whole trial is to appease one racial attitude! Justice will not be done with this notion. Never. You set the wrong tone and you get the out come! The truth still stands! Thugs do the crime they pay with time. One got caught early and dug his own grave. That was not Zimmerman btw. Stop pandering to thugs....it is nor should be about color.

The only people making this case about race are the far-right conservatives. The trial is not about race. None of the witnesses, the police investigators, the attorneys, or the judge have defined this case as being racially motivated, but routinely, you people raise this issue for your own agenda.

It's very telling that your entire focus is about race instead of just the FACTS of the case.

I think the wrap-up guy for the prosecution did a good job. They should have had him out front all along. It seems he also "smells a vigilante", as I still do. As for badgering & twisting witnesses, that's what the defense has to do to prosecution witnesses. The prosecution will now do the same thing to defense witnesses when the trial continues. That's just the way it is. If BOTH of them didn't do that, somebody would feel justice was not being served.

But I don't think the prosecution prepared their witnesses very well to brace for those kind of tactics. Worse, they seemed to not be fully aware of what they were going to say. That last one, Dr Boa (or Bao), for example. How could they only be finding out today that he had changed his mind on the weed and minutes-to-die issues? Wouldn't they have asked him "is there anything you'd like to tell us, like maybe something you've decided to change?".

What comes next is the defense side, so it'll probably just get better for Zim. I wouldn't exactly say the prosecution never laid a glove on him, but there was certainly no knock-out blow nor even a 10-count moment. You have to PROVE somebody is guilty, not just suggest it or create suspicions. I smell a "wannabe cop", but I can't find proof. At least not enough.

Ox-bow? So Trayvon was a cattle rustler? Well, Hell's bells, why didn't I hear tell of this sooner? Let Zim off and give'em a medal. And his shootin' iron back too.

(sigh) Ok, you assclowns out there. Don't just "judge it", tell me what you think or why I'm off base. I am kind of on the fence, just leaning Trayvon's way.

You don't do a neighborhood watch with a gun. If you do in some state or town somewhere, please post the proof that's so. If you can't, then I still smell vigilante. Manslaughter at least.
