    with his GF? This case is going to be a he said/ he said thing sadly. If it ever gets to court there will never be a fair trial on it since all the evidence will get hashed over in the news and everyone will have made up their mind.

    No one can prove what happened other than Zimmerman is paranoid and more than likely shot in basically cold blood. Unfortunately without proof that it was NOT in self defense and it was indeed manslaughter nothing will get done.

    Sucks, stupid and wrong but not sure how else this would play out in the legal system.

      ago, showed them on an Ed Schultz (MSNBC) show.

      Easy to get, if the girlfriend just logged onto her account at her provider and downloaded the copy of calls logged on her cell.

      The timeline on her phone, Trayvon's, Zimmerman's and the neighbors who called 911 all tend to disprove Zimmerman's version of events - and tend to support the girlfriends version which is that Trayvon didn't know who the heck was following him in the vehicle and the girlfriend told him to run home to get away from whoever it was.

      Those timelines are enlightening, to say the least.

      Taken together with statements by neighbors who made 911 calls (2 of which I've heard televised) and on which you can hear someone crying out "help!!!", and which at least one of those neighbors has stated as a fact was Trayvon crying out and not Zimmerman because (as the calls plainly show) the very moment the shot rings out the crying for help instantly STOPS and if it were Zimmerman crying, why would he stop yelling??? ...

      and the news today regarding the investigating officer/detective saying Manslaughter should have been charged at the scene, followed by an arrest...

      all together make a compelling case for murder, IMHO.

      to turn over recordings of the calls, along with all the tracking data involved.
