  •  Now Z is being cross examined... and losing face (4+ / 0-)

    He seems calm, but he looks foolish in a cheap suit and shackles.  

    It comes out that Z gave at least three statements to the police, (maybe five?) and the prosecutor says there are contradictions in his statements and that he changed his story as it went along.  Z denies this under oath.  

    He's bringing up evidence about text messages that Zimmerman sent that include comments about (probably Jesse Jackson) and Tracy Martin, the father of Trayvon.  

    Looks like Z may have been texting about the family - Zimmerman took the stand to "address the court" but then instead made an apology to the family, adding that he thought the youth was close to his own age (but younger)  and that he didn't know if he was armed or not.  

    The prosecution had a small chance to cross examine him but only on the subject at hand - so he was asked why he had not apologized previously, and that left the avenue open to ask about what he had said about the family via his texting.  

    sorry this is not very coherent - hearing is still in progress.
