  •  Matel was impressive. (5+ / 0-)

    I'm hoping he does the closing argument.

    •  Yes, he's impressive. At least I think it was him (4+ / 0-)

      who said:  "There were two people involved here. One of them's dead and one of them's a liar"

      The prosecutors have to be so careful what they do and don't say; it was a relief to have someone state the truth so baldly.

      Ziimmerman's a liar.  That much is clear, whatever else people think.  Zimmerman says he was punched in the face 20 times or more.  Look at the photo taken that night.  THat man had not been punched repeatedly.  Head slammed on concrete repeatedly -- look at the photo.  Yeah, something happened; he had two small cuts.  But he lied about what happened, clearly.  I hope the prosecution brings these things out effectively.

      •  That is not what someone looks like (6+ / 0-)

        who is punched in the face repeatedly. I know what someone looks like who has been through that, punched only five times instead of the 20 or more Zimmerman claims, because it happened to me when I was raped. My face was completely bruised and I had two black eyes by the time I got to the hospital to do the rape kit a couple of hours afterward. It was bruised before I called 911 as the rapist was trying to break into the house, which was about ten minutes after he left. I saw myself in the mirror when I went into the bathroom. And I saw the Polaroids the nurse took at the hospital. I know how bruised I was.

        Zimmerman's face, either in the photo circulating or in one I've seen of him in a police station, is not bruised. There is no way he was punched in the face even once. He is lying his ass off.

        An organ donor saved my life! Is this bragging?
