The night that my home was in the process of being burglarized that was February 2.
As to who the copper trader was.
He was an individual young black male lived in our community that was responsible for.
Not just the attempted -- where my house but two of the burglars that had been committed in this neighborhood.
And he also shared with me.
That on the night that he was out walking his dog he wasn't on patrol he wasn't on watch.
He's walking his dog that he wanted me to let the public know that he is carrying his weapon that my.
In addition to just walking the neighborhood.
Did you know that George Sherman had a weapon before that conversation Norman never heard to and -- never know that carry a weapon now.
Did you find when he made that phone call did you suspect that his lawyer had said look you know -- cough Franken make sure that he says these things -- -- what was your sense that -- He he he -- didn't that retain.

At night when it's essentially the same conditions the same you know darkness out there judge -- said no but when you revisit that with the judge.
Yeah absolutely that I'd -- that and you know we -- -- yet Arab -- but doesn't happen I had it actually happened.
Once -- a case -- judge Moore which -- and Ted and I can talk about for days.
It took that long to get out there for -- another homicide and that in West Virginia it was just fascinating.
Because in closing you can tell to the jury.
Listen you saw what I saw -- pictures unlike witness's testimony we actually eyeball the place that it -- so I think that's that's critical.
You're witnessed the walked three -- got.
I mean -- did -- don't get me started because.
What what Zimmerman did he start -- -- poured the foundation on his defense.
Before it even got started before you got charged -- there's somebody -- broke into your house I know who did it.
It's a blackmail we -- -- evidence and then he's also responsible for two other burglaries this blackmail and also by the way.
I carry a gun just in case the public gas.

Him reaching for the -- And then do it.
-- that is the best friend Adam George Zimmermann call by the state he wrote a book shortly after this incident occurred.
That test when we just heard was an inconsistent.
With what George -- -- in some audio and video does.
Overall they tell me how good you think this event of this witness -- -- Davis was the worst mistake for the state of Florida has made the bar none.
This guy was so sweet so lovable yet law enforcement.
But it is he's gonna he's -- -- -- -- law enforcement not only is George -- a friend he's the best friend I've ever had the and then he went on to tell George Zimmerman story.
So eloquently he explain the inconsistencies.
He explained the problems he walked through it.
He justified it for -- -- -- and so much better than George -- could ever do for himself.
This was eight -- awful I don't understand it I will never understand it all the state of Florida got is.
Maybe he said he touched the gun that you know what I might hurt that wrong you get thirty I had a -- -- Robert limited.
