Little creepy okay.
And it shouldn't pretty.
-- -- -- -- Yeah.
You can find you know there's no pain at all.
Okay and it's obvious.
You her gross out and if you say something what did you say did you -- channel home.
And what do you hear this camera.
And you know -- home.
What you need to think municipal.
Should -- when your coach.
What happened that.
You call 3 o'clock PM -- yeah -- able to.
So it turns out listening to Rachel lunch and tells testimony there that.
George -- wasn't the only one profiling that tragic night sixteen months ago.
In Sanford Florida -- black teenager felt that he was being stalked by a creepy white guy.
Who applaud the -- white guy that he was following yet another.
Criminal black kid in a -- looking to burglarized.
His housing complex they have everybody profiling everybody.
But far more important than the issue of profiling.
Is the definitive issue in this case of self defense and here is the key moment in this trial so far.
One guy on top in the black community was pretty much throughout just.
Throwing don't blues.
On the guy kind and then -- stop.
Is that the context -- -- that happens.
Yes the person you -- know to be traded on Martin was on top correct correct.
And he was -- want to -- -- raining blows down on the person on the bottom joins.
That's what it looked like.
The boy's screams for help however many times that you've heard it.
It was just one person's voice.
When I heard it outside and I believe it's just one -- -- yes and you now believe that that was -- Simmons went for a I never -- do you really would have been.
As that I was not 100% sure I'm classical reform groups from -- didn't I'm -- you use your common sense.
Did you tell us if you think if I was -- reasons -- scream for help the personal blog.
That's just my opinion.
That's just his opinion and that's mr.
-- a prosecution witness but as you just saw and heard there his testimony -- -- -- -- words.
That the defendant George Zimmerman we'll get off why because Florida's -- on self defense says that even though Zimmerman started the fight.
Because -- -- was winning the fight.
And Zimmerman felt in imminent danger of being killed or gravely injured he Zimmerman.
Was justified in using deadly force to save his own life that is the law ladies and gentlemen.
Gerald Clarke's law firm represented -- Morton family.
Darryl welcome to the program now I know you must be disappointed honestly speaking with the way this trial is.
Unfolding so far.
Can no way at -- think we're doing very well.
Put it like this Geraldo as you know -- -- -- would probably be the best possible witness for the defense in this case.
His testimony he backs down a couple times even a clip that you -- played in his testimony so he wasn't quite as strong.
But most importantly remember this also with the -- saying testimony -- he -- in court.
He describes the interaction between -- -- -- George Zimmerman as it console and is wrestling so the whole injection of give them a style.
Was really more so Markel Merrill cross examination trying to make that a major point in the case had sold.
You take debt plus the fact when he was asked to describe whether or not he is also -- didn't hit bash into the sidewalk.
He could really confirm that -- somehow -- the -- down.
We've also learned in this case there was no blood on the -- -- additionally.
We now know that this the remarks obviously it was -- five centimeters into civic leaders is so.
I don't believe that describe a situation that required you to use a gun to allegedly save your life.
Especially in light of the fact that you -- did you already call the police and the police were on their way.
I disagree -- I'm sorry to say I understand how you would like that to be the way the jury is perceiving the testimony.
did -- I tell you why.
His testimony says that -- -- -- on top and then MMA style he's pummeling.
The guy on the bottom.
I mean come up -- is you don't remember wait a second remember this Jordan Zimmerman has the reason you're only believe that he is.
Life is in danger or he will be gravely injured you can't tell me -- that a man on the Bob.
Being pummeled by a young man -- is bigger than he is.
Cannot reasonably feel that he's about to be gravely injured or killed.
For all the big -- is pretty huge mistakes we now noted that trading on Mardy is around a hundred no what -- -- in sixty -- And George Zimmer weighed over 200 pounds right so different in my development and and then.
Straight -- over six foot.
And it got him down -- he got -- on his back he's in the grass is way back.
I have no no dog in this fight -- but -- new.
But I understand the law the law says that he reasonably believes.
He's in imminent threat of being gravely injured or killed.
He can use deadly force that's what the law.
Says in Florida right.
But let me say one big distinction now you said it correctly -- I was in the grass so remember now.
-- assists in an opening statement.
Dad did fight did -- use that -- in my -- cartridges a weapon that's the only way to begin to really prove that did deadly force.
If they can put him -- and Zimmerman and trademarks or under concrete sidewalk how well Brooke we now know did -- -- -- Biden was well within the grasp what he was shot and killed.
-- so the whole period that he was using the -- To to hurt mrs.
-- Has been totally -- -- of -- counselor.
Our second counselor how many times -- -- have to show that picture.
But George -- bloody head.
The grass didn't make his head bleed.
I -- arm I again I I know this is a wonderful thing in whichever ones -- it's a wonderful family they deserve justice.
What George Zimmerman did is morally reprehensible.
And following this guy.
But the law while it cares about morals cares about the specifics of the statute more importantly.
And here you have a law that said that -- reasonably believed.
That your life is being threatened or you gonna be gravely injured you can use deadly force and I don't know how you get away from that and that's from a witness called by the state.
Is that the best the state has because if it is I think that most people watching right now and most of across this country now expect.
Jordan -- to be acquitted there's no way six women -- gonna say George Zimmerman didn't have a reasonable fear that his wife was being threatened Darrell right is Nat.
The issue when argue that no you totally wrong mr.
goods testimony would.
Ask the wind a personal -- top what was what was the interaction between the two he said that the -- there was a ballot most of the hands remembered they -- -- describe an opening statement.
They quelling of the arms in -- -- style right.
They really are alive today can't -- the level of interesting in May and embraced Al ground pounded which they have not approved the facts don't support -- he describes his tall slim.
And grassland yes a few punches were being thrown but he testified he could even say whether or not apologies were made -- -- not.
So don't come very important facts when you think about that did not only per second somewhat put forth.
88 period self defense -- for who he also to remember though.
There have been no effects whatsoever that describes -- but as attacking George -- in this case that once scintilla of evidence.
Dell I have to leave it there please give my regards to bankrupt and especially to the table on Martin family they are again I think wonderful people thank you for coming -- Thanks for having me.
