I can't imagine you not having videos of young children playing in the park.

That proves Zim was on his back and the dead black perp was on top of Zim beating him
I have no doubt the pedophile Zimmerman spends a lot of time on his back and will spend more in the coming months.

As far as the state of Florida is concerned: he ran three blocks before he could claim he was on his back.

<quoted text>No, son. The prosecution doesn't have to make the case for self defense. That's the defense's job.
Because now Zimmy could say another person actually pulled the trigger and under your "legal definitions," it's up to the state to prove the claim wrong.
The state only need to make it's case. And the defense, theirs. This is all part of the adversarial legal system we have.
You're problem is you're trying to draw a legal road map outside of the legal system .
As for syg, the longer it takes to get to that hearing, the more it looks like the state has a better case. And if your "witness" is as strong as you made him out to be with corroborating evidence from forensics, this case should have been over long ago.
But it hasn't even started. And the ignition for that is the defense and it's clear they're not ready.
All high profile cases take forever to get to trial. Where have you been?

I didn't say the prosecution has to make Zimmerman's case for self-defense. What I said is that Zimmerman is considered innocent because of self-defense unless prosecution can prove otherwise. He is not considered a murderer because he's charged with it. He is considered not a murderer in the eyes of the law and our system of justice.

Prosecution has to prove that he is a murderer or not covered under SYG laws should it go to that court. Until that time, he is considered innocent because of SYG laws until proven he wasn't or that there are circumstances that require a trial. But if it makes it to the murder trial, again, he is an innocent man.

<quoted text>Well son. You've already drawn your personal conclusion.
I still say Zimmmy should have his day in court.
After all, what are you afraid of? Losing?
Where did I ever state he shouldn't have his day in court? I don't think he should have been charged with anything, this is true. But now that he has, I look forward to the trial.

Yes, Zimmy is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

It doesn't matter what the charge is!

Yes, the prosecution has to prove their case for whatever the charge if they go to trial.

No, the defense has to make their prima fascia case in the syg hearing if that's the route they choose.

DOES NOT SAY....

"the law says that he must testify"

My post did NOT say that "the law" says the Thug has to testify.

It says that I say the THUG has to testify.(BTW...so do other legal experts).

And I continue to say that the Thug has to testify if he wants to prove his case in a SYG hearing.

YOU FOOL.
It is a lie

He does not have to

You are full of cr@P.

Had you had been his attorney, this pedophile would already be in making whoopie with a long line of cellmates.

The pedophile shot and killed an unarmed BOY- a minor- and the state has to prove this pedophile was there with a gun and that he pulled the trigger.

It then moves to the pedophile.

This pedophile has to meet an objective standard of showing that the force he used was necessary and that he immediate fear of death or serious bodily harm.

IE: burden of proof moves to the pedophile.
