Some thoughts on the Zimmerman case…
- The prosecution appears to be using a lot of circumstantial evidence. But what do you expect when little was seen.
- I do not like the prosecution’s attempt to bring in Mr. Zimmerman’s past school records in his pursuit of a criminal justice degree. Considering, they’ve pretty much prevented any evidence of Mr. Martin nature prior to the night. And let’s be honest, Mr. Martin dealing in “illegal” guns is de facto evidence that he was willing to kill and murder. Which does add to Mr. Zimmerman’s defense, that he feared for his life.
- I am not too keen on Duval County, Florida Dr. Valerie Rao. Her answers are made in a very definitive matter, on what is an extremely subjective topic. And in my opinion, they do not reflect my actual life experiences. Which makes me feel she is a hostile witness seeking to have Mr. Zimmerman convicted. In high school I was jumped, and I took three hits to the head. There was very very little evidence noticeable. One slightly swollen spot on the back of my head. But I sure as !@#$ hurt where I was hit. I wager, Zimmerman took at least several impacts in sustaining his injuries. Maybe not a dozen. But it was sure as hell not a single punch.
Zimmerman has two issues with his case as I see it.
– His statement about spreading Mr. Martin’s arms out after shooting him. They were found underneath him. This could be as simple as Mr. Martin still had some life in him, and drew his arms to his chest at somepoint afterwards.
– Zimmerman not knowing the street. I think Zimmerman, walked to the other street, not to really get an address. But to see if Mr. Martin had ran that way and to see if he ran to the side exit of the gated community.
I will say, I do find it fascinating to watch how things are proceeding.
