July 11, 2013
I am still shocked by this trial. The defense has not in any way given convincing evidence that Treyvon had to be slain in order that Zimmerman would live. If a case cannot be made for self-defense, then ill will explains the murder.
I find the breezy comments by many experts on the news to be disturbing.
SM: That is your opinion and yes, the defense has done what you claim they have not. When you have some one over top of you pounding your head into the concrete, I would dare say that any response to that would be self-defense.
Also, do you understand that the prosecution has the burden of proof? And they have done nothing. They have presented a weak prosecution and that is agreed by all, including those that are pro-prosecution.
The prosecution did not seem to make much effort to present their case compellingly. When the gym owner testified that Zimmerman was weak, was he comparing him to a top fighter or to a teenager? Why was no effort made to show how preposterous it is to claim that a person 40 pounds lighter than Zimmerman can pin him down and smash his head thirty times on pavement. Zimmerman’s obviously false testimony shows a guilty conscience. His injuries clearly show that his head was not smashed down –or he would have had a concussion. Rather, the two may have rolled around on pavement.
I would have had Treyvon’s brother appear at least for several days and sit in the stand near Zimmerman, in order that the jury would be able to see the difference in size. Instead, they have seen the physically large and powerful father day after day.
SM: You said”The prosecution did not seem to make much effort to present their case compellingly.” … That right there is reason for a “not guilty” verdict as the State did not prove their case and there is nothing but “reasonable” doubt.
Most disturbing of all, was the suggestion yesterday that Zimmerman was so very helpful with the young woman who had her home broken into. In this case, the illness is bad, but the medicine kills the patient. To argue that Zimmerman was helpful, when he has killed an innocent child and devastated a family in his community is horrifying and absurd. I am white. I wish to see justice for the family of Treyvon Martin. I am outraged at certain glib comments made by lawyers and commentators on news coverage.
