  •  I think it will come down to the Forensic Evidence (17+ / 0-)

    The Forensic evidence that has been made public so far does not support Zimmerman's version of events. There is a lot we don't know. I still have no idea how Treyvon Martin ended up face down on the grass when he was shot in the chest. Somebody must have rolled him over but nobody saw that happen. Several witnesses say that they heard a gun shot and then the man on top who was straddling the man on the bottom got up while the man on the bottom never moved again.

      account is false, but I'm afraid we will never know the truth. I think the physical evidence will show it's possible that Zimmerman was defending himself even if it shows his account is wrong. How will the jury react to that? It may depend on how far off the evidence is from Zimmerman's account. Nobody would expect a shooting witness to be 100% acurate in such a stressful situation, but if his account is TOTAL bullshit....

      the defense version seems to be that Trayvon was "ground and pound" on George and George shot up and then somehow slipped out from under Trayvon after he died. I don't know if the forensics support that version of events.
