One of the biggest obstacles for the prosecution in this case will be motive. What would be the motive for hunting down and murdering some kid walking home with skittles. Makes no sense.
However, the jurors aren't robots. They're humans and have emotions....and their own opinions / viewpoints on things.
If Zimmerman refuses to take the stand, that will deliver the wrong type of message to the jurors which would be detrimental to Zimmerman's case.
There was no proof that Martin was up to no good.
There was no proof that Martin was on drugs.
What more do you want?
So what. What is "proof" in this instance?
You don't need proof to question someone's intentions. Especially when that is part of your position as a neighborhood watch.
I just dont see the racial angle in this case at all.
It is not racist to think a suspicious looking person is suspicious. Regardless of color. Where in this case is there any evidence that Martin was profiled??? There is none! He just so happened to be black, so that automatically makes him "profiled" in the media and the prosecution. Its reverse racism, its disgusting, and its part of the reason why there will never be racial equality in this country.

It's funny almost, read through this thread and you have some postes who have basicly described Zimmerman as a Racist hannibal Lecter with a deep and involved and devious plan to premediatedly murder Black Kids, but smart enough to know to call the cops first and to scream himself right before he shot him down in cold blood. All for racism sake.
On a related note, could someone with the knowledge that I lack tell me why this jury is made up of 6 members? Has that ever happened before, I thought it had to be 12???
I've got more but you can google to find the rest.
EDIT: I just saw you said you saw the NBC News clip. Im pretty sure that clip was exposed to have been doctored to combine the two statements to make them see racial.
Edit 2: Yup, great job NBC, lol http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/0...n_1407432.html

Agree to disagree. I think it shows a clear obsession. Regardless of being a neighborhood watch, it is not reasonable to call a dedicated emergency line so liberally. How many of these calls ended up with an arrest and/or conviction?Doesn't really seem like an excessive amount to me considering that he was on the neighborhood watch.
