There's no question in my mind that the evidence is properly admitted.
To rebut or refute the claims that he made in the past that he didn't know -- thing about -- It could come in.
As to the issue of his state of mind at the time although I'm not sure what it bears on how it fares on that.
But to the extent.
That this -- is giving a substantive lecture about what the law is and I understand that part of this it is is solicited by the defense to blunt the force of the testimony.
Once -- admitted.
That doesn't belong in -- courtroom because it's the judge's job exclusively to instruct the jury on the law.
Not Carter do its job to inform or misinformed the jury about what the law -- now.
To the extent because evidence comes -- for a reason.
Not for every reason for particular reasons not to be expected came -- to -- on -- state of mind I would argue that blew up in the prosecution's face.
Because if George Zimmerman knows something about the state of stand your ground law.
Maybe it tends to show that he was acting reasonably that he was acting in conformity with what he's brought -- -- that he was doing what he thought he was allowed to do under the law.
Rightly or -- Is that reasonable order the jury will decide that I think that advances the ball that -- -- I don't think so little I mean lightly sedated -- back on the prosecution.
I don't know how many other legal analyst would -- -- taking QE they thought it was a big blow to the defense on this one I don't I don't.
So often and myself included I don't know what -- they just don't know what they're talking -- they just they just conjecture.
How -- I don't even see the relevance to a state of mind it's very slim relevance period other than to -- but.
His past claims that he knows nothing about it and shown to be a liar that's all fair game.
How does this how does this hurt him in the -- plays into the wanna be cop mentality he could wanna be -- while he wants they -- They hammer him credibility.
It's fair game that not everyone you know once he could my statement one interview races and get -- Does that say he's a liar is how pleasant isn't it wasn't even and if you -- -- -- You know Sean Hannity and it is viewed by you know it's like you perjured himself -- something like that and I think -- for the trying to make a yeah perjured himself right handed right now could provide the full interview.
Right or -- that I think Alan I watched it that night -- it was a good idea for the for the defense to put them on him in the first place you know but it happened and that's the way it's -- it wasn't a good idea I thought about that this morning.
In some ways especially.
Monday Morning Quarterback if he doesn't get convicted in some ways it was a great idea because he effectively testified without subjecting themselves.
Try -- that was -- I thought it was a bit.
App that gives another reason not to put him on the stand exactly -- no animosity he can't go on the stand now he can't do any better than he's done.
And he hasn't done well but he did effectively get his story across without taking this back -- fat and happy that purpose alone but -- -- Again that's what -- that's supposed to prosecute that put that out there.
You know I am sure you know.
We're finishing the prosecution's case now.
-- it's going to be fun to watch is the -- I mean that's it because -- it was set before the prosecution have much of the case everything from here on is gonna bolsters and I think it'll be a very skeletal defense case I don't think it'll be much.
And you could seal on Wednesday justice and the defense -- going much law on many days and just -- -- to -- it.
-- they wouldn't also I think witnesses who will they ever call them any of the witnesses all of that is what -- new witnesses were that would have.
Preventative care nickles amendment that would -- spam I mean -- I like that or you know not my son's voice.
Yes I am happy I am that the most impact.
I don't know how much more -- you know that I think they're gonna bring your own.
-- what the voice analysis conservative -- say listen.
You know I listen to -- it's not like the -- and basically that and he's kinda wanna hear those things like somebody and you definitely don't say it's unintelligible he can't.
I don't remember that that ruling that you cannot that you want to have.
Specific -- analysts in there because one could.
-- it could argue whatever case they want like thinking this is different I think she just said that that they can't affirmatively state the prosecution can't affirmatively state.
That it's Martin's voice on the tape because they've already brought the FBI expert scientists say it can't tell his voice that is -- -- it Obama and I don't know that that you could bring a voice expert said this is definitively towards -- I don't I don't know that's not what some thoughts are.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Not even a family member.
Could recognized that voice I don't think.
We'll do that because I think the point is made I think they'll bring somebody in.
Two discredit the DNA collection methods on -- -- me.
And to show that the the absence of DNA is not dispositive here -- might expect -- something like that I wouldn't put on much of the defense case because -- take the risks.
-- filling gaps in -- deficient.
Prosecution case and here's the other thing on Wednesday.
When court broke.
You heard west arguing you know that the prosecution's case is wrapped much quicker.
Than anybody thought the -- -- target adjournment and they're playing for time there's no way the defense case to start today -- west drag out the cross examination.
And he has -- a bit -- -- lottery says today as well.
He denied that he didn't want to keep -- jury sequestered that -- she felt like it was not right he you have them Thursday Friday.
Through the weekend he's gonna try to drag it out and we -- put -- stop the -- she knows just what one would expect.
