An important points there because -- the crux of all of this is.
From the Zimmerman testimony and from that Zimmerman lawyers -- point of view here.
What was happening is -- -- -- from from the defense the defense story is trained by -- Was beating on George Zimmerman was using MMA and mixed martial arts tactics on him and by the way George Zimmerman.
What had been taking mixed martial arts classes three days a week so make of that what you will.
And that his head was on the concrete.
And that's how he got these wounds that.
That trade on -- was beating on and Arthur Arthur right dollar is when this Fox's contributor.
-- -- Legal analysts and John still work and -- needs to lawyers well.
What what do you make what Mark O'Meara was doing there that if the defense attorney who you saw just before the the prosecutor can -- he -- -- And a very good job.
Any reasons being just very direct he's like when the prosecutor prepared you to testify here today even though that's what prosecutors opposed to do any lawyers -- -- It gives the impression to a jury that all the -- he was -- she was prepared she was told what to say and then the way he ended I mean I really appreciated.
How how he did their job he had -- prepared and what about the next injury that he didn't have to sustain recent with the goods he'd -- killed them.
But how what how what kind of damage could that have done which he knew he's gonna get an objection but it adds a little bit a drop right -- you jurors' attention.
And then the prosecutor just got up and tried to clean up the best of the good that these are not life threatening.
Injuries lazy gentlemen these are not the kind of -- -- blow someone away for -- that's their.
The point is they don't have to be -- that was the point Mark O'Meara had driven home.
It doesn't matter whether the and injuries were actually life threatening as -- -- Zimmerman reasonably believed they wore.
Around this time of day every day they take a break in the testimony and they've done so now just a few minutes for this break and I wanna continue talk with -- lawyers on this.
That this this matter of us who of who was on top of whom is -- the crux of all of us.
And what they're trying to establish here the prosecution is trying to say look this man chase after our that I chase after this man.
And and -- defended himself trailer on Martin did and didn't end as he was defending himself George Zimmerman shot him and -- -- and that's why they say this is murder in the second degree right.
And that's the whole theory of the prosecution's case and it is falling short because the issue isn't whether or not from its self defense standpoint.
The fact that Zimmerman got out of the car when he really didn't have to do and and trade on -- -- armed only with scandals.
Ended the whole argument the argument is Wednesday's -- didn't -- -- -- At what point was -- -- -- the aggressor or at what point was George -- the aggressor that's the crux of the case because whoever was the aggressor probably had the right to self.
Well -- -- one who who started this whoever started this confrontation the other person is immediately in point of self defense.
If if -- by -- turned toward George Zimmerman and began this we have one thing.
But it George Zimmerman went up to -- by -- and said what are you doing as it as it has been described and and physically attacked him.
And then -- by Martin defended himself and got the better of George Zimmerman in the in the case of that defense and then George Zimmerman shot and killed and.
Not sure that flies in and shepherd dogs do what's your definition of starting it in the first -- is that the threat.
And if I -- just say something about the skills he -- just have skills and this I don't know for me it hits home.
He had a snapple -- shepherd he did and I could tell you some of the best outlook while the weapon and got a decent weapon if you need to use it either a full.
Or if -- if it was broken somehow you have a piece of glass in your head.
That I have ever used them on haven't gotten there but I would say.
As the prosecutor.
If trailer -- what's gonna use deadly physical force he had the weapon in his hand if indeed -- -- the cement if you don't taught me just read the what he abandoned his head.
He is hitting.
Look like a watermelon instead the seventeen year old dude is using is based not Mohammed Ali not not Mike Tyson is that enough but he -- Our government headed and that's -- our trivia question of back right the closest guy.
Author who who testified said I -- Zimmerman on top I saw punches being thrown I did see them land.
-- did you ever see him slamming.
Trade -- -- to the ground no I never saw very gifted that back and Zimmerman head didn't get their buyback but they could record but being punch in the face and -- and it's being me and he's hitting the back of the cement okay.
But the bad medical exam or try to bring out has now as well.
Sorry for yelling well I mean.
-- -- -- that happens I wonder what you guys think of of the demeanor in the courtroom so far at the prosecutors came out.
-- this very dramatic statement and -- member of the curse words from the very beginning he ended the lines that he went through.
And then later we today we've gotten to where witnesses have testified that the very police officer who was involved -- said.
It didn't go down like that that's not how he said that and -- demeanor matters.
-- I think it.
Adds to or takes away from a person's credibility I -- they always get away of these -- punks but wait a minute let's juxtapose that against the video that we saw yesterday which is now the whole reason why government doesn't have to take the stand and how credible he came across in that video when he said listen you know I approached him he punched in the face he covered my nose and mouth he wept for my gun.
That's adds up to self defense textbooks out.
But what they're gonna do and I believe I've been thinking about this is a one why did they do that we we yesterday -- -- -- putting all of the said.
I think the prosecutor.
Is gonna use it to show all of the inconsistencies between story and story the -- well the testimony will we -- again in just a moment we'll get to the other big news around the world and there's lots of it coming up.
