Bradford Cohen with me sort of criminal defense attorney we're gonna go back into this trial here but -- for what.
What Mark O'Meara is doing at the moment.
Is re creating for the jury.
That moment that trade on Martin George Zimmerman came face to face -- how's he doing correct.
I think he's doing a good job I I think good defenses laying their case -- very appropriately.
I think they're being methodical about it there addressing each element.
But you're my big -- of your prosecution being given as lacking you're speak and as a defense attorney to hear right.
Absolutely I mean -- that I think both sides of the coin.
And I try to always look at it objectively to say like OK maybe the prosecutor.
Is doing something right here.
I don't see it happening and another thing that's unusual is the judge is allowing.
Just go over the fact that he said on direct and that's not what we directives for re direct -- to read direct on little things that were brought out on cross.
To just correct those things and that's not really what we're creating value to the judge is allowing a lot of leeway.
What's the effect of that.
Well you know the thing is is that is that Mark O'Meara tried to go into what else did you do on your investigation.
And the the prosecutor finally objected to something any objective the -- stated that it was outside the scope of direct.
That I'll redirecting he asked did you see the video did you do other interviews did you do this.
Those are all new things that -- marriage now open the door Mark -- should be able to say now well what else did you do on the investigation.
That -- direct.
Is not really a redirect it's just going over the same facts that he went over -- direct.
It wasn't really addressing a lot of things that happen on cross so the effect is that it's not an effective -- direct.
I don't think the prosecution is scoring many points here.
Let me ask you this Bradford -- you know in terms of laying out the path here possessed that they were just doing with that map.
And George Zimmerman says he was going back right using his gonna go back to his car.
And he claims that that that is -- -- on Martin jumped out of the bushes and and attacked him basically right.
Correct I -- so so one of the things that we don't know obviously because we don't have -- -- -- Martin's side of this story.
Is you know sort of whether or not indeed George Herman did decide to go back to his car because he's got himself -- Sort of you know into the center of this -- after he was told don't follow -- So it just raises some questions that I think people had all along about this case.
As to whether or not he had a better alternative whether or not he could've waited in his car for the police to come.
Whether or not he needed to pursue him as he went into those two buildings.
I you know all of that I think is something that the jurors will want answered here in terms of what -- Burma's other options were that night.
Did he have other options that might not have ended this way.
Do you expect -- and hear more of that from the prosecution.
I don't know you see the problem is is that.
Legally it doesn't matter what your options are.
If he -- following him if he was aggressively following him.
But he was not the first physical aggressor that's what's important and that's why Mark O'Meara keep saying.
Is there anything illegal about going up to someone saying hi is there anything illegal about going -- so I think get out of here -- don't like -- -- -- act and I captures analyst let's listen I'll be right back to you.
