  •  As for the jacket being wet, (13+ / 0-)

    I thought it was raining that night -- even if it's just a drizzle, just try to go anywhere without part of your clothing getting wet.

    The optimist sees the glass as half-full. The pessimist sees the glass as half-empty. The realist just knows she's thirsty.

    •  It appeared dry up near the top... (0+ / 0-) the shoulders, with a large wet area below there. Not entirely clear how much is based on the light in that room and the position from which the camera was shooting, however. Same for what I think I might see on the back of his head.

      •  What if he ran by a sprinkler system watering (5+ / 0-)

        the grass.

        It comes up about to the mid-back.

        Zimmerman may not have ever been down on the ground.

        It's a gated community. They probably do have those auto sprinklers that pop up and water the grass about sundown.  (You don't water grass in the middle of the day)

        the back of a police car with vinyl seats.  They have vinyl seats to keep from having all sorts of bodily fluids soak into them from the prisoners they transport.

        And he might have reason to sweat, knowing he'd just killed a guy and was being taken in cuffs to the PD.
