This judge is biased. She allows the officers opinion of whether Zimmerman was showing ill will, but cannot give his opinion of Zimmerman's credibility shows her prejudice. This is a professional interrogater, and his opinion on the credibility of a witness is definitely something the jury should be allowed to consider. And imagine having your head slammed into a flat concrete slab hard enough to break the skin... you would probably go to the emergency room to check for a concussion, especially if it was a child of yours. For this examiner to claim that by just looking at pictures, she can say it looked bad enough for Zimmerman to think his life was threatened is ridiculous! I guess she was looking for brain matter to be exposed before she would call it life threatening. If you feel your life is threatened, as in someone a lot bigger than you is on top of you and has just slammed your head onto the sidewalk, even once, that is a life threatening situation. Zimmerman was unable to retreat even if he wanted to. Why doesn't the judge issue a subpoena for the NSA to release the recordings from that night? We now know they have them from the NSA director,, It would prove what a liar the "star" witness is. They probably have a better recording of the voice screaming "help me"... I am sure this would have already been done, if it would have helped the prosecution... Think about it....

The main stream media and many of the politicians have decided that Zimmerman is guilty and they are doing their best to influence the trial in that direction. In reality, only Zimmerman and Martin know what happened and Martin can't testify. They prosecution has no concrete evidence. And no, Jeantel's testimony isn't really evidence!!!

Would someone in the defense PLEASE admit that yes Zimmerman was profiling! He was obviously profiling for a an unkown person , not recognized by him , walking around in the gloom of a property that had been victimized by multiple recent break-ins. In other words DOING HIS JOB as a neighborhood watchman! He then correctly notified the police that he was observing such person. Anyone who has lived in a neighborhood that has had a string of burglaries knows that " those A$$#@/&$ " do indeed almost always get away with it. He is portrayed as " stalking" a "scared widdle boy" intent on "revenge". Really! Looks like he was doing his job continuing to " observe" while police were coming. If Trayvon was really that "scared widdle boy" he would have run home straight to momma. Instead he chose to attack someone who was merely following him. That act makes him the aggressor and not the victim. That is where all this should have stopped. Did Zimmerman identify himself ? Maybe , maybe not..Did Trayvon identify himself as a visitor /resident ? I bet not, because if he had then most likely none of us would be here now. I'm sorry for Trayvon's parents, no parent should have to go what they are going through, but their son made a very very poor choice and it cost him his life. That's it. No one wants to say it and move on. I wonder how this would have been if he had actually been in possession of the gun he was shopping for? Would a Special Prosecutor be trying the case of Trayvon having shot/ killed Zimmerman? I bet not!
