That's their escape let's give viewers a little bit of -- Sam policies of what you think this case is about and how you see it.
Right now I mean obviously the -- hasn't gone -- but you've studied up on the case we've heard a lot of coverage in the media yes.
Sense -- there are two issues if the 800 pound gorilla in the room which is race.
Which is nothing to do with the law has no place in -- courtroom but unless you just called out from under -- rock.
That's what this case is really about it's about race the legal analysis is very simple.
-- this notion of self defense what they call -- Florida's stand your ground did George -- and have a right to use deadly force in the face of what he believed to be.
Deadly -- potential deadly force being used being used against him the trip in this case as we've talked about is that George Zimmerman was clearly the initial aggressor right.
Had he pursued trade -- or even after that not 11 operators -- listen chill out we got this.
Just and down stay down yes.
So he pursued his -- -- on -- know what's going to dispute that so -- being the legal challenge is going to be a -- at that moment Georgia's government ever become the pursuit because he's clearly the -- there.
-- -- -- similar sentiment generics you that's and then damn what if you -- -- -- -- suggestion.
That at a certain point.
When Georgia man heard that he didn't continue to be in that he lost tracker visual side at hand and that trade -- came up on can't.
Okay if that's the case that's gonna help George Zimmerman a tremendous amount that's where you gonna get the knot before the guilty and apple are exactly Andorra -- Because it is that it's not killing yet inconsistent statements where he said he continued to pursue ignoring that he's -- a a little bit of a tougher count you're not possible.
I -- -- the house lights and just you think fastow get me my inmate number and I'll see you -- 25 years with him when he called 911291.
Operator tells him stop following him and the question is did he continue to follow him after the 911 operator told him that he's going to say on defense that he did not keep following him and then let you do -- -- later even if we continue to follow him.
To me it's going to be a question up.
Can -- be a point in time where he can no longer be viewed as the aggressor and can he now be com.
But he pursued and here's the.
Saying that that -- -- -- terms of the chronology of what happened here there's a police ops and cops that's who arrives on scene within my minute 32 human.
After the shots fired at -- -- So he's going to be a very gift recipient witness they talking about this case it take you could try different -- and fast that it shut down.
I you know weaker with -- and -- you're that's one of the key witnesses you're gonna -- which is the officer first on scene.
What statement that Annie Wright did and didn't make any kind of excited that Aaron says any -- -- hearsay rule.
What eighty -- what injuries.
You know what argument and in fact -- Jordan and say something right then at the scene that is different or contradict but he said later when he was questioned.
By the police are when he spoke to the media -- coming right back.
Re absolutely any statement he made that -- going to be admitted being the tough thing here that a prosecution is -- George Zimmerman says that he was.
Up removed from -- stopped following him and then was attacked and acted in self defense the prosecution has to dis prove that beyond a reasonable -- So -- Zimmerman can just show reasonable doubt that he was defending himself.
That's enough for him to be found not guilty.
That's really tough for the prosecution if they -- -- the person who saw the altercation.
Talk about this but at the top charges of second degree murder charge business.
That that's that's a heavy burden to carry for the prosecution -- over man -- something -- -- -- -- more manageable.
-- -- -- get -- on it's been well they didn't go to the brass -- the way we've seen a lot of prosecutors particularly Florida gulf war we jurors -- left with -- I can't -- you would like Casey Anthony and then they -- they went for the first degree and it was.
Now -- -- I'm sure and then let because what I've had the experience of -- get very turned off.
Wendy cases over charts for -- they feeling the weight of the government with tremendous resource says.
I get the guy in -- chair and YE being greedy and we haven't permanent right.
So but the second myself think it's not me I'm not saying it's improperly -- they believe their case right very strongly.
I think it's still a tough sell.
To me again I I think -- some level unfortunately that -- is going to be impacted heavily on the question of race and whether or not.
These lawyers are going to be able to get yours to be on -- home and talk honestly.
About race and talk about their feelings and talk about whether or not they're going to feel the weight.
Of the country on them.
In deciding this case because this case should be decided on nothing more -- the evidence that's presented at this trial and not impacted by whether or not you're gonna be concerned about a rise.
Yes -- I mean they'd think about it this six story of what you have seen a lot of -- -- -- -- after the sheep like followers right there on a bunch people buddy Anthony extra -- it's great that okay.
So you have pictures on it doesn't like me and he sent our little bit -- -- frightened -- worried about their -- worried about their life or you found recent passion or wanna be famous.
I can really affect the outcome it.
And that's racing this extensive extensive white deer that you don't see in other cases where they're questioning people at -- and you're getting through 45 potential jurors today -- they're really trying to.
That people out -- not only find out what they know that case the -- their motivations that are.
