Players have just come back in the courtroom the jury's not yet there when the jury get back gets back in the room they'll continue to testimony first -- Phil Keating is outside the courthouse.
Fill Mark O'Meara the defense attorney with some strong words about that last witness the chief medical examiner.
Yes she's -- Jacksonville Florida medical examiner doctor Valerie Rollins she was testifying for the state.
As an expert witness she never.
Did the autopsy or examine the body of trade Bob Martin.
Nor did she treat or even see the injuries of your deserve it in person.
But she was testify on the stand this afternoon for the state that number one.
Based on the photographs of the wounds and injuries and cuts and abrasions on George their -- head in the days after the shooting incident.
She says those were not life threatening issues.
Life threatening injuries and there were -- very insignificant.
She testified that there's no way that would be consistent with what -- would expect.
If somebody was repeatedly having their skull slammed onto a sidewalk as George Zimmerman claims.
-- -- -- -- -- So the states and for the defense attorney for George -- -- Mark O'Meara essentially saying look.
Who gave you your job Angela Corey well Angela Corey is the state attorney for the Jacksonville district.
Who also happens to be the person appointed by the governor of Florida to be special prosecutor.
In this case was then last April it -- evolve eventually led.
To George -- being arrested and charged with second degree murder O'Meara basically saying you're in the pocket of this -- here and the jury of course her all of this.
And -- -- didn't get her to concede.
While she says they're not life threatening is it -- injuries as she does think there are very insignificant.
She cannot 400% rule out.
That has had.
Did in fact make impact with country.
Yeah and and are that they can't -- -- -- Mangini then.
That's it's all about how those injuries were caused because even though John always write about it's it's.
Their -- feelings an -- how he perceived -- threat we all use common sense efforts to.
What all the injuries but no injuries whatsoever in and trick someone just approach to regional like not I was afraid -- my -- -- -- -- -- away.
Nobody's gonna believe that.
So that's why this cement and the concrete and the injuries are critical.
-- you're using their common sense to determine whether.
They remain -- the right to use deadly physical force.
John injuries did not get there via slingshot with a tiny pebble correct I think we can all concede that the two of these highs were going toe to -- we have the physical injury the -- had the -- of the space we seen that so I don't care what the end he says about the significance of the entries as you pointed out.
Really what I point out is that exposed to kill.
Whether or not George Zimmerman.
Reasonably believed he was in apparel and if you're getting slammed on the concrete I don't get your head -- seven -- -- -- bash you're headed to some -- are -- as we clearly you're the ball boy I just don't know.
I had on the back and I haven't gone I am probably gonna be at reasonable fear -- -- -- the reason we're talking over this this what's happening here is because there arguing over.
First Mark -- the defense attorney and now the prosecutor arguing over whether.
Some information about George there -- -- criminal justice studies.
Should be allowed into evidence and it looks like it's gonna take a minute so rather than missing more testimony we'll take a quick commercial break and get me get you back for the testimony.
-- live on Fox News Channel unlike some others that's coming right pessimist can resume in a minute like I said we'll get back.
But he emission -- John tell.
The woman who was on the phone nineteen year old who is on the phone with trailer on -- according to testimony.
In the minutes before the attack -- or the confrontation happened.
And if you're close follower of this case you know that much has been much has been written over the past 2448 hours.
About that young woman and this sort of cultural divide as many have described it.
Between her and end of the the prosecutor.
Who was going after and if it giants.
It's it's been ugly you know if this is a young woman who speaks three languages you you may not have.
I mean her dialect you might not have understood -- -- you know you might have been in touch with her -- anyway but.
I don't know and lot much has been written.
She was a horrible witness for the prosecution you.
And she's got some points is she came across as very un educated but to invite him to speak to -- for second.
You don't kick a puppy you know and I don't -- -- -- your friend you don't get online and call somebody stupid a major murder case like this whether she was or not doesn't matter you don't and -- it's like kicking a puppy he can't defend yourself against that it's bad -- her father -- -- -- on his kid before she was allowed to do anything like that and it.
Sort of take this is not a game to be won or lost -- this is a search for the truth and it may be -- George Zimmerman actually had a right to self defense and maybe he didn't it's not a game there's no winner and there's no losing you can't do that kind of crap excuse me online during -- major high profile murder.
Daughter daughter of a lawyer and a very high profile lawyer at that especially in Central Florida.
Did you know imagine -- one of those pranks on Padres movement that was trial has -- case well it would be log off and couldn't beat them out of different set of -- I mean as a data -- -- and that's George of the technology and how things can run away but getting back -- your point.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Aggravation and frustration that was evidence of that jury and there was some things in -- that she said like why are you following me now.
I mean that's a problem from a common sense point of view for a jury why are you following me.
George Herman why are you following trade Mon -- If you believe that.
I think you have a common sense problem I know John meaning by the letter of the law that these six women who know -- the dead person that a dead boy there.
And the -- data sitting right there are looking at them every day.
The jurors are gonna have a problem with the fact that she was so belligerent that even if you want to believe -- you almost can't issue.
It pained her to be on the stand she let you talk usually yeah of the -- -- Jack.
You know you've been in the division ladies and gentlemen I don't get to pick my witnesses I don't get to put -- couples who want -- half million don't they.
They don't have to go and I was on early on I think -- should've saved her and I think -- didn't need her nine point.
-- on Martin -- who he was gonna speak with.
On the phone with that night it wasn't a priest there wasn't -- -- it wasn't a rabbi it wasn't of the bread the United States.
It haven't read that young person who is not trained to speak publicly she's not shrink this week imported jurors -- television cameras.
Broadcast that's a nerve wracking experience and what do people do what they put their defenses have been shut down -- crawl inside themselves.
And that's when she did you were defending herself.
What about the salient point that -- -- Martin back with his bird of a -- That was his that we and -- prosecution wants to paint him as this.
Choir boy we just minding his own business forging for skill for as little brother that I that's gonna wanna pay and we have evidence that the -- never gonna -- to the contract is.
And we're doing wrong -- -- -- -- heat -- that -- kept company with who had total contempt for the justice system doesn't count on him and he blocked again.
-- I think you're on the stand for May you come across like that the big event.
-- train dogs to.
I think it for people that's what I do every day that's a look at how young woman does if you don't you don't rap sheet of dealing drugs have us all look.
And I would agree with you I appreciate your -- whereas you don't speak alien point if they if the defense wants me about Martin to be painted as a punk.
That witness did the job for them but -- And you wonder how you wonder how fair that is and that and that's what I've been reading about all day and a number of different respected online publications.
Without without notice of you know conservative liberal anything else like that except there is a cultural -- And there's been a cultural divide in Sanford Florida.
That has been well documented and -- look it up for a long time used to work there in that market was a reporter there in that market -- familiar with the cultural divide about which they speak.
It's well documented it's all over the place and I think part of the point that's being made it is.
Here you have an older well educated white guy.
And and and a young woman.
Who who is from.
Who is from -- maybe the other side of the cultural divide and that's sort of the place where trade on Martin was living and just because he's on one side of the cultural divide and there's -- They are on the other side of the cultural divide doesn't mean that this divide should remain.
It's something over which we're trying to cross.
And through which were trying to find justice and it just seemed that.
The demeaning nature of comments against that woman.
Didn't have any place in all of this in the same way that the lawyers daughters -- to Graham didn't have.
Any place and all this but when you get his enormous high volume.
High pressure I'm looking down -- all the news channels and were all on it now.
I mean when -- when there's this much going on at every single local station in Central Florida channel six the CBS channel nine the ABC.
-- to the the NBC channel thirteen all cable news channel chip that the Fox Channel down there everybody is covering this thing wall to wall.
Everybody's life is changed everybody it's.
It was funny the shivered I didn't exactly what you're saying about the divide between -- attorney and the witness but there's certain places in New York City where we don't like you go to the Bronx.
The jurors are much more like the witness then they are the attorney and the attorney is the one who squirming but -- related to the jury correct but not here in Sanford and not on this jury and not the case correct you're you're right but that -- interesting when you watch the lawyers squirming to try to relate to the jurors as those a year it's the other way around the -- -- witnesses trying to relate.
To a jury pool that's probably not in the same look around online do you feel like what I'm talking about it all out there where in -- in the went on an island.
