The prosecution resting is only part one ending. Part two could be a lot longer.


They're starting closing arguements and they say the jury might have it in a couple of days.

The news is making a point about the all women jury whose maternal instincts might sway their votes.

NewsCenter10's legal expert is bringing up how they replaced the prosecutor, how they went for the wrong charge and says that, if they deliberate for less than 2 hours, it's going to be "Not Guilty". He says Martin might not have been racist, just a smart ass, who started a fight and eventually was killed for it.

Well, the media is certainly racist. CNN's still calling Zimmerman a "White Hispanic", ignoring that he's almost as black as Obama, with a black Peruvian grandmother.

So, a truly accurate description would be Hispanic, white, and black American.

Or, if they weren't trying to push the race issue, just George Zimmerman.

It's interesting that the only person confirmed to have used racially charged language in the case is Martin himself, not Zimmerman.

Doesn't matter though, Zimmerman's toast here, the government and the media have too much invested in railroading the guy, from Obama on down, to let him go.

He'll still win on appeals, but in the meantime he's been ruined permanently.

If there are riots, we should charge Sharpton and Obama with hate crimes. I know the 'yelling fire in a crowded theater' comparison has been used to death around here, and I can't think of a better example to support that than this one.

So...bets as to the outcome?

I predict manslaughter. Then appeal. Riots in that case I don't know.

Not guilty. But I haven't been following it as closely as some.

and definitely riots, possibly even outside FA

Two things about the closing arguments:

1. The prosecution is relying on the jury connecting the dots in it's scenario of events

2. O'Mara is forced to concede that Zimmerman exaggerated the beating he took from Martin

Honestly at this point it's about 50/50. Overall I'd give the defense the edge, but, it's Florida, who knows what's going to happen.

and the jurors, no doubt. Aren't they mostly female and mothers?

All are female, not sure if all of them are mothers.
