It was so painful to watch, because it was clear that she did not have the skills to communicate everything that she wanted to say (“I heard grass! Grass sounds!” Well, yeah, we know what that means, but are we allowed to read it into her testimony?), & that defense attorney was being as disruptive as he could! That’s not being a lawyer - it’s being a player! Luckily, the prosecuting attorney was not only being patient, he was taking care to sound patient. And she did it! She stayed up there, refusing to to “take a break” or “get a drink”. And I honestly think that her inelegant testimony was more powerful & believable because it wasn’t polished - wasn’t coached. I only hope that the jury agrees with me (Yes, I have a decided opinion).

re: #1 Flavia

The testimony was a train wreck. It was confusing, illegible, and in some parts allegedly contradict each other. Given that she lied in her official testimony, she’s also untrustworthy.

I’ve yet to see anything that makes Zimmerman guilty of 2nd degree murder. They had a strong case for manslaughter, but they have no evidence so far that Zimmerman intended to kill Trayvon martin.

I disagree, theye1, I have been listening to the whole trial, and I found her sincere and consistent. She did lie about a couple details that have nothing to do with what occurred that night, and as she is a teenager I’m not shocked.
She has been entirely consistent about how her phone call with Trayvon went down. The defense tried to get her to exaggerate and assume other details that she was not privy to, but she did not budge. Her testimony was that Zimmerman followed Trayvon, and that he approached him when Trayvon had no idea who he was or what he wanted, and Trayvon did not approach his car, circle around it, or half of what Zimmerman has alleged. Coupled with the other testimony heard yesterday and before, it damages Zimmerman’s story.
I await the testimony of ‘John Good(e?),’ the neighbor that went outside.
Also, if Zimmerman doesn’t take the stand he’s a coward. He should at least defend himself and justify, in his own words to the jury, why he killed an unarmed 17 yr old who was on his way home to watch an all-star game with his 12 yr old soon-to-be half-brother.

re: #3 Major Tom

With all do respect. Her story hasn’t been consistent and she withheld information.

edit: I think my comments can be misconstrued. Lets be clear. I don’t think Zimmerman is innocent, per se, but I think that a 2nd degree does not fit crime that allegedly was committed. Secondly, I think it’s abhorrent the way they’re treating her.

She clarified previous information, and added specifics of her testimony that wasn’t asked of her previously by investigators… What was inconsistent about her testimony that Trayvon was being followed and did not instigate the encounter with Zimmerman? I remember her saying that Trayvon said Zimmerman was watching him, lost him, and then encountered him again, and that he was concerned about being followed before he was approached… I don’t remember her deviating from that order of events even once in her nearly 6 hours of testimony.

Perhaps you could point me to where She said otherwise.

I understand that the jury may not agree with the 2nd degree charges based off the testimony (as much as it pains me to say), but I have a hard time understanding how, once the gun was in Zimmerman’s hands, pointed at Martin, that he couldn’t control the situation, that there had to be a shot fired, and that the shot had to be fatal. Beyond the fact that Zimmerman profiled and stalked the kid. Beyond the numerous holes in Zimmerman’s numerous accounts of the evening, and his behavior after the fact. Is it Zimmerman’s story that Martin had no fear of him, even after he brandished a gun?
I refuse to believe a shot was necessary, or that his life was being directly threatened, (or that Martin cartoonishly advised him that his life was over), or that the shot had to be fatal.
I know I’m screaming into the wind here, as I am not part of the trial, jury or any part of this situation, but it is so frustrating to watch, given what I believe.
