George Zimmermans defense team rested its case Wednesday, after using its final day of testimony to paint the neighborhood watch volunteer as a wimp who was getting pummeled when he shot Trayvon Martin in self-defense, at one point commandeering a mannequin introduced by prosecutors in order to re-enact its version of the fight.

What a battle ax.
Lets see now, over by Friday? = Riots through the weekend “For Trayvon”???
He should have taken the stand, I think he made a big mistake in not doing so.
I’ll be damned if that judge doesn’t look jut like Cousin Earl! Well, okay, he doesn’t wear glasses...
Ugly is the best remark I can make of her.
What do you do with an elephant with 3 balls ? walk him and pitch to the Rhino
Hopefully the jury can git ‘er done in the time it takes to play the long version of the soundtrack:
Is the jury sequestered?
I suspect he will be found guilty but this will be an appeal. The judge made some seriously bad calls.
If the jury was not present when she asked, she wasn't out of order. There have been criminal cases where a defendant didn't testify, was convicted, and then argued on appeal that "my lawyer didn't let me testify." So it's not uncommon for the trial judge to ask the defendant personally if he wants to testify, to preclude that kind of later argument.
Looks like John Gooodman
(1) The prosecution has very little evidence to offer, period.
(2) The defense was not allowed to offer much evidence because of judicial interference.
(3) If you are guilty, you file motion after motion to delay a verdict. If you are not guilty, you do not engage in stalling tactics.
They need to wrap this up before the NAACP can finish busing their rent-a-mobs to Orlando for the convention next week.
Prosecution has a couple of witnesses to rebut testimony from defense before this is over. It may all be over shortly.
Zimmerman is going to prison for a long time. Obama, Holder, Florida Governor Scott have invested too much time and effort for this not to happen.
The prosecution is going to bring in witnesses to rebutt some of the defense’s witnesses.
If you had to draw a picture of an American liberal woman...That would be her
The fix is in. The judge asked GZ if he plans on testifying BEFORE the defense rested. That is unheard of as far as I know.
Give the leftist media its due. It's worked long and hard promulgating lies and misrepresentations in its quest to see Zimmerman behind bars for using a gun to defend himself against an unarmed, black, street thug wannabe.
