George Zimmerman's team plans to put on "a lot of witnesses," defense attorney Mark O'Mara told WKMG-Channel 6 Tuesday night.
Those witnesses will include family members, friends, neighbors and an expert on a timeline for the night Zimmerman fatally shot Trayvon Martin, O'Mara told Tony Pipitone.

Think? This is old school to complement your opponent while you smash his game to smithereens.
Wait, those weren’t defense witnesses we’ve been seeing? O my!
Retarded State needs to list elements of Murder2 and ‘splain where they provided evidence of same.
Is the Defence going to call Marco Rubio?
Is the Defense going to call Marco Rubio?
I hope they recall Jeantel.
I agree with that. Don’t come across like West’s daughter did on her twitter account as well. Be respectful always. I can see why Zimmerman wanted to do the Hannity interview. He knew he had nearly 90% of the media and the Obama’s DOJ coming after him. He was trying to show that he was not this guy that hated this black kid. I would be worried too for the defense because they don’t know what the jury is thinking and how they are leaning. I image they along with alot of us can see this as a simple self defense case against a corrupt system to get the guy/ and for those who blame guns for crimes and do hate the stand your ground law; they would not want him found not guilty.
This is a great way for O’Mara to show a bunch of potential clients that “Yes, I can beat the prosecution so badly that you will be able to sue Ben Crump!”
They get the medals out of the local high school’s JROTC drawers
Still, I will relish watching those political operatives getting their hat handed to them. This is going to be fun.
Better go to the store and stock up on the popcorn!
BTW, I actually hope the riots start. I believe that the gun-owners of America are fed up with scum-suckers and this could be a turning point in our society. Guess I should start thinking about talking with my neighbors who own guns so I can borrow one. Just in case the "gimmes" turn elsewhere to loot.
the people defending themselves may find themselves attacked by dhs and teir local dhs-trained police. just to be aware.
Apparently, Martin’s DNA was NOT found on Zimmerman’s gun, according to the prosecution. This bombshell was mentioned on Nancy Grace’s show, so you gotta consider the source.
I will bet the defense only puts on a small handful of witnesses. They don’t want the devastation of the past week to the prosecution’s “case” to fade down a memory hole and leave everything up to closing statements.
I have no idea what you're talking about.
From my experience of being on three jury's recently, young folks are the worst. This is is an all female jury, but not young and stupid
Even if true, why is that a "bombshell"? So GZ pulled his gun while getting the crap beat out of him and shot the punk and there is no DNA on the handgun? That just tells me that Zimmerman pulled and shot. That is not evidence of anything.
Seriously, this is the most insane racist politically motivated trial I have seen in my 63 years. And I'm one of the few who thought the officers beating Rodney King should have been found guilty.
The reality is, very few of the animals give a rat's ass about Trayvon or Zimmerman. It's all about an excuse to loot and grab (even more) "free stuff" they did nothing to earn. The animals in every city from coast to coast may seize the opportunity to loot. For Trayvon, you know....
Of course, the ironic thing is that when the animals riot, loot, and burn, it will all take place in the concentrated Democrat parasite nests ("cities"). One of my all-time favorite photos is the one of those Korean storekeepers with the rifles protecting their stores during the Rodney King riots in L.A. Shame on anybody who isn't prepared to defend his business from the looters.
>>”Apparently, Martins DNA was NOT found on Zimmermans gun, according to the prosecution
“unimportant issue or person: an issue or person of little significance, put forward to be easily defeated”
the people defending theselves against the rioters may find themselves attacked by dhs or dhs-trained and armed leos - as racists attacking justifiably angry blacks.
obama wants race wars and he’ll use this as an excuse to begin going after the groups he has payback in mind for.
If the prosecution has really done such a poor job, I think it would be wise for the defense to put on NO CASE. After the prosecution rests, the defense attorney should stand up and say, “Your honor, the defense also rests. And we now have a motion we’d like to make to the court outside the presence of the jury.” The jury leaves. The defense makes a motion to dismiss. If the judge won’t dismiss the case for lack of evidence, the court decides if 2nd-degree murder and/or manslaughter will be considered by the jury. Then closing statements.
If I was the defense, I’d want to get this case to the jury as quickly as possible - if it even makes it to the jury. The prosecution isn’t even close to “beyond a reasonable doubt” in this case. They’re prosecuting Zimmerman because racists like Al Sharpton are demanding it. The 2nd-degree murder charge is such a blatant overcharge. The prosecution team deserves jail time more than Zimmerman does.
and if you think i am exaggerating we are having people pull their air out over 1 guy who shot a black trying to kill him and worried about rqce riots from one trial,
if a bunch of people across the country defend themselves from rioting black mobs, killing scores of violent black rioters,
you don’ t think obama will use the dhs armored cars are billions of round to go after whites and other non-blacks defending themselves? you all do remember the targets dhs bought of unusual folks to fire at, every one of them was a white person.
they have been projecting this for months.
they have not even proven voluntary or involuntary maslaughter either according to florida definitions of what constitutes each of those charges and what needs to be proven.
I for one, am disgusted with them.
Oh Heaven’s....Nancy DisGrace show?
That’s why I stressed, consider the source.
Yeah, I got that.
Judging by the looks of this Sanford PD officer, I’d say in her 40’s. That would mean her parents were most likely little kids during WWII, if they were even thought of back then. I know, those are her grandfather’s medals he earned in the war and it’s her way of honoring him. Yeah, yeah, that’s the ticket. I’m surprised the LSM didn’t spin it that way.
What Nancy Grace didn’t tell you is what O’Mara did on cross with that. It was raining that night and the witness agreed that rain would have washed away fingerprints. So in the end, that bit was a ‘wash’.
He knows $ybrina is the poison pill to the case. $cheme Crump may choose to self destruct the case by having her do or say something stupid and purposely cause a mistrial. GZ will be tried until they get the result they want. They are evil.
Thus far, all we have seen is the prosecution’s case. With few exceptions, each “star prosecution witness” has only corroborated and bolstered the defense’s case.
this was also explained by the specialist because the gun surface was too hard
GZ has made a statement thar TM
tried to take the gun from him.
“GZ has made a statement that TM tried to take the gun from him.”
And that is expected to leave DNA? Sounds like a straw man to me.
It seems like the media is complicate if there are riots if Zimmerman is found innocent. I’ve been following the threads on FR and know the details.
Was flipping through the channels, and on one of those text things scrolling was “Zimmerman claims Trayvon grabbed gun, but Trayvon’s DNA not found”.
Or things like “Zimmerman, 39, followed an unarmed Trayvon, a black youth, age 17, into the....”
“Why bother? The prosecution has done a fine job of making Zimmerman’s case.”
Because we want to see MOM take down baldy and the feds “martial arts style” in the courtroom.
Here’s an article that may explain this.
Sanford went on the cheap for decorations when there are a ton of companies out there that make police ribbons.
The riots will send more people to the gun stores.
People are better armed but the memories of the Rodney King riots have faded. When the verdict gets close, you people better go heeled. I’ll be watching from the cheap seats since we don’t have to worry about this stuff. The only black kid in my son’s grade has one of the highest GPA’s and speaks 3 languages.
Remember the LA riots? All the LEO’s left town to work a carnival in Burbank.
I think the defense should rest and thank the prosecution for proving their case.
Wouldn’t it be the prosecution calling Mr. Rubio?
It must be very difficult preparing the defense in a show trial.
Certainly he should move for a directed verdict before presenting anything. I don't know what the elements of Murder 2 are in Florida, but one of them has to be intention.
It does not sound like the State has put on a case which, if everything their witnesses have testified to is believed by the jury, could sustain a verdict IF the jury follows the law.
I don't think that O'Mara will be allowed to present evidence about the "system", although it is very important.
The Defense Dist.Serv Medal is the highest medal and should be on the top left side. The WWII Philip. Service Medal (according to wikipedia)has not been awarded since 1947. She does not look old enough to be a WWII vet.
Now we get to see the English-speaking part of America and other normal people who don’t take footbaths in morgues.
Not amused, but very offended. Especially perhaps, because she doesn’t even know what the ribbons represent. Why, in Heaven’s name, does the PD even do this? Does the PD not have the correct PD ribbons? Or hasn’t she earned any of them?
Martin’s DNA absent from the gun means that it was Zimmerman doing all the bleeding. Which is the story he told. Nose and head and that blood smearing and spraying in random places and directions. This suggests that at some point zim might have tried to protect either his nose or head or both with his hands
Bottom line, though, is that it confirms that zim was doing the bleeding. And that supports his version of the events
