    "standing is ground" and trying to keep Zimmerman from shooting him?  There is absolutely no evidence that Zimmerman's head was being "slammed" onto concrete.  

    Zimmerman's whole defense is one of the most cowardly, shameful and offensive one I've ever witnessed.  Capping it off, he has co-opted Trayvon's screams before he died for his own.

    Utterly shameful.

      The jury has to apply the evidence presented and apply it to the current Florida law. I don't think I have heard the prosecution state their view of the case, consistent with the evidence yet. I imagine they will try to paint a picture in their closing argument. To date it seems that they have focused on punching holes in Zimmerman's statements, a strategy that is difficult to fashion into a guilty verdict. It's the prosecution that has the burden of proof beyond a reasonable doubt.
