Skip to comments.Jurors hear F-bomb, knock-knock joke as George Zimmerman murder trial begins

The prosecutor cursed and the defense attorney told a joke as both sides laid out opening arguments in the murder trial of George Zimmerman, the man who killed Florida teen Trayvon Martin in what his lawyers say was self-defense and authorities say was a case of fatal profiling.
The all-female jury of six took in both unconventional statements, alternately stunned, taking notes and at times appearing to nod in agreement. Jaws in the jury box dropped when prosecutor John Guy electrified the courtroom with a short, but profanity-laced and impassioned argument that sought to paint the defendant as an angry and out-of-control vigilante who was stalking Martin when he shot the teen in the gated community in Sanford, where he lived.
F---ing punks, prosecutor John Guy said in open court, quoting Zimmerman's own words to a non-emergency police dispatcher. These a--holes, they always get away.
The language -- rare for open court -- appeared to stun the six female jurors who must decide whether Zimmerman shot and killed the 17-year-old African-American teen in self defense, or if he stalked the youth and provoked the deadly confrontation.
Those were the words in that grown mans mouth as he followed, in the dark, a 17-year-old boy who he didnt know, continued Guy, as jurors in the Florida courtroom listened intently, some taking notes. And excuse my language, but those were his words, not mine.

Don West followed with opening statements on behalf of Zimmerman, offering a knock-knock joke that fell flat before the stone-faced jurors.
“Who’s there?” West said. “George Zimmerman. George Zimmerman who? Okay, good. You’re on the jury.”
Probably not the best way to get the jury on your side.
Interesting how laws on juries vary from state to state. Only six jurors here, and if I recall my jury duty correctly, in California notes are not allowed.
Whos there? West said. George Zimmerman. George Zimmerman who? Okay, good. Youre on the jury.
That was a STUPID move
And excuse my language, but those were his words, not mine.
oh yes they were yours
you made them yours by repeating them..
Statistically, their "ignorance" is next to impossible.
Would love a picture of just one of the jurors in an anti-George rally.
Knock Knock...Who’s there?
Me! Zimmerman’s asinine and adolescent defense attorney, who doesn’t take you or this case seriously...
Book deals make people do funny things.
To bad the defense didn’t play Martins foul tweets for the jury, tells a lot about his character. I bet these women jurors would find them enlightening.
“When Guy said Zimmerman “made a decision that brought us all here today,” the juror identified as E6 nodded her head in apparent agreement”
Well, there it is. Barely started and one juror has already found him guilty. Zimmerman doesn’t stand a chance. Not with his a-hole attorney cracking stupid jokes.
Oh, I’m sure NO_LIMIT_NIGGA will make an appearance.
I am hoping so.
Zimmerman is so screwed!
Nobody is stunned by the F Bomb anymore.
trying to lose the case before it starts, what an idiot to tell that joke or any joke.
Heck, if I were the judge, I’d charge the lawyer with Contempt of Court for telling such a lame-a$$ joke.
