Posted on 07/10/2013 11:00:06 AM PDT by servo1969
George Zimmerman's lawyer literally flipped a prosecution witness -- a gray, foam dummy -- to re-enact the defense's version of the confrontation that ended in the death of Trayvon Martin, straddling the mannequin and bashing its head against the floor as stunned jurors looked on Wednesday.
The mannequin was initially introduced by prosecutor John Guy during cross-examination of defense witness Dennis Root, a former law enforcement officer who testified as an expert on defensive use of force. Guy used it to show how, if Martin were straddling Zimmerman, he would have had difficulty reaching for a gun holstered at his waist.
After Guy wrapped up his round of questioning, lead defense attorney Mark O'Mara stepped up.
"May I use your doll?" asked O'Mara.
O'Mara straddled the dummy on the floor in front of the witness stand, grabbed it by the shoulders and drove its head into the floor repeatedly.
"Would the injuries on Mr. Zimmerman, the back of his head, be consistent with someone doing this on cement?" asked O'Mara as he slammed the flopping mannequin's head into the floor.

It was the only safe color, to insure that no minorities would be offended.
Yes. Cruel. The mannequin reads cursive.

If the mannequin’s head is split,
