  •  There were weaknesses in Zimmermans case (0+ / 0-)

    but he had IMHO a few major points to a S-D claim

    1) There was a 4 minute gap from the time
    GZ said "He's running" to the first scream.
    if TM was really running, that was a lot of time to go home or plenty of time to start a fight.

    2) GZ had injuries on his body consistent with getting a beating.

    3) TM had injuries on his hands consistent with a fist fight.

    4) half the witnesses saw TM on top of GZ pounding his ass.


    the only weaknesses were

    1) 2 witnesses thought he was on top.

    2) the corpse position was a little weird.

    but, most crime scenes have hair on them
    and this wasn't particularly well investigated at the time.
