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.

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
Significant...it means zim was doing the bleeding at that point of the struggle...exactly as he said
This supports the defense. The media are idiots
I missed the part where GZ said that TM got his hand on the gun. Did anyone hear George ever say that?
That's hardly a bombshell. There is useful and probative DNA in maybe 1/3 of such cases, and the absence of it proves nothing. And it also was not first revealed at trial.
I wonder why there is not more commentary on the fact that no DNA was found on the trigger? I mean, that turns this shooting into quite a whodunnit! Right?
Officer Tim Smith's DNA was not identified on the weapon's slide, so apparently he lied on the stand about taking and clearing it!
I can't think of any reason for the prosecution to have put this DNA guy on the stand, except that they hoped the jury would be stupid enough not to understand there was nothing of any relevance to either side presented.
(Although, FWIW, the witness testified that they "could not exclude" Martin's DNA from the holster swabs...)
I want to know if they found DNA from the cop who handled Z’s gun on the gun. If they mentioned it I missed it.
One of my favorite pics as well. Thanks for posting.
I know I am being silly, but really. Does there have to be DNA on a gun for Martin to have reached for it or touched it? RME
The statement I heard was that GZ felt TM's hand moving in the direction of the pistol. He never has said, to my knowledge, that TM had his hand on the pistol.
Her police chief has just put a stop to such fakery in the Sanford PD because of outrage from veterans after they saw her on TV in the witness box.
She (and the corrupt prosecution team) hoped all those impressive-looking military service bars would influence the jurors as to her credibility.
“Take gun from him”....
Actually supports zim version since he was bleeding at that point and Martin wasn’t. Zim’s blood all over that gun is exactly what you’d expect if zim was getting beaten and bloodied and Martin was the aggressor
In fact, ANY of zim’s blood on Martin supports zim’s version. And LITTLE Martin blood supports it, too, since Martin wasn’t seriously bleeding until gunshot.
Any ‘Martin blood on front of zim in any location supports Martin getting sprayed or smeared with zim blood
Well, he is deposing the race hustler - Crump. He has something in mind.
