In the mayor's office.
-- -- -- -- I guess I didn't want to believe that it was him.
So that's -- during an interview us and I wasn't sure.
I guess who's listening to it was crowded planet shock and denial and sadness and truly believe that.
-- -- But today the jury heard emotional testimony from trade -- Martin's family.
So how -- the six women who will decide to amendment's fate reacting politics.
A -- jury consultant Susan Constantine has been inside the courtroom she joins us now from Orlando.
I'm season very emotionally you've got a mother on the stand you have a brother on the stand.
Prosecution concluding it's case with these -- witnesses emotional witness says.
And then you -- said the defense.
Beginning their case and starting off with George's -- remnants.
Mother and that's you know pretty much the last thing that the jury seeing before they go for the weekend and defense resumes again on Monday let's get your thoughts on that.
Okay -- -- like to share with you I was not in the courtroom to watch that Jerry daring.
Those two testimonies only through the medical examiners -- I can speak about.
But what I would like to share we -- what I sought Kearin overblown program -- -- at the -- on the courtroom.
That's correct I was an overflow room which does not show the jury Phish shows actual witnesses testifying in everything out that those around it.
Okay and what the reaction.
Well my reaction -- -- that you know they're in their body language overall was pretty controlled.
Guard and protect it.
So what I'm looking fourth OK I know that they're trying to guard protect -- south and -- out of self preservation so they're really the only thing I can look at it there -- mitnick Hughes or their voice inflection.
And generally speaking with someone -- than I -- -- that all ice.
There I just move left to right in hot Torre not popping visual so -- -- eyes are moving up and around the back and forth.
It's not definitely constructing it.
-- -- Whether they can -- call that visual image that's not a visual image this isn't auditory image.
So what I was -- -- that I think that they all want to believe.
That that that was trade on Martin's voice but I was not convinced.
That truly wise he is voice based on what.
OK so when you have sort of two witnesses testifying that it was two witnesses saying that no was George Zimmerman.
So we'll see how the juries are set out -- -- just -- -- Regional -- and that sense of what else can you tell us about your observations.
At the point where you -- ever able to see the jurors in this case.
Well what we know we had this medical examiner there no no really big jurors are really big.
Heavy -- note takers I mean you could see their -- and north deck okay.
Dear medical examiner they just put it down and they looked at him they're just listening and -- to -- a bot from -- -- But what I was looking for is that they would find something interesting like the smoking gun.
Or something that you think -- -- -- and they would make notations but I didn't concede that it all -- -- is really concerning to me.
Whether they this jury really found him competent.
And confident in what he was -- that's not.
Good for the states OK also -- six women on the jury evaluating this evidence deciding the fate of George -- amendment.
-- -- what do you think about that jury makeup.
It's a bit -- well.
-- well first off the five way -- six women.
It wasn't really important at this six of female -- if they're really connect with and it angered them.
So what I would like to -- seen even though I understand that that moms who were protected.
If they've gone to draw a whole lot in their lives.
But at the same time I would like -- at least half sheared a little bit more like.
I ain't no all my son's voice when he with a little boy I've heard -- screens before.
I know that that was down.
But unfortunately we didn't hear that we solitary stole it controlled look.
Well we didn't have any emotion and what I would like tourists see and it then how bold and to feel a bit more on our ball.
Feel a bit more safe to share with how they really felt about it so they can move in cherry did feel empathy and you know -- it just didn't happen.
And -- tend to expect to see something like that from watching trials covered you know on television -- Movies that we see -- who knows how they're processing their grief and what kind of anxiety -- that depression -- might be going through.
I just listening to this evidence and reliving it all over again.
But we will see how BS six women what they thought of the testimony today they heard from both of them mothers powerful testimony.
To consider and think about over the weekend Susan thanks for joining us.
