    is Zimmerman contending that he shot Martin as Martin was on top of him?  I don't recall any testimony/reports of Martin's blood on Zimmerman's shirt.  Did I miss something?

    You can't spell CRAZY without R-AZ.

      that TM was astride him, holding him down - "Ground and Pound" - he was pinned as TM grabbed for his gun.   George got it first and fired.

      Problems are Trayvon couldn't have seen the gun, and GZ couldn't have reached it while Trayvon was on top of him.  Trayvon had to GET UP - and if he did that, Zimmerman isn't in mortal danger anymore.
