    slipping it in. Clearly, Zimmerman stalked Trayvon. Perhaps the prosecution should have spend more time deciding what charges would be brought against him.

    •  that would be grounds for appeal. (0+ / 0-)

      the judge was running a tight ship
      kept a lot of evidence out and shut down
      a lot of lines of argument.

      the prosecution could have argued GZ wanted to
      rob TM and that would be grounds for felony murder.

      the state had no evidence for that, so, they weren't allowed
      the argument.

      last thing any judge wanted would be to lose this
      on appeal and have to run the trial again.

      especially on prosecutorial misconduct

      George Martin called the police when he saw a suspicious person (a black man that wasn't a known neighborhood resident, wandering around the rain) and then briefly pursued (as in 25-40 yds. total) said suspicious person when THEY took off running.
