We did hear from trade bonds are actually know George governments uncles.
Who was military.
And -- -- -- who also said he heard the voice on television and he new.
It was towards listen.
What people can my wife is watching news all weapons and her was screaming.
I think that he came here legally.
Not only trust -- I thought of this thing let my nephew.
Didn't work -- -- -- for his life.
-- was -- -- moment and I actually.
Lived with me every moment that I cover.
The big portion of that.
Because it was -- -- -- feelings and always -- -- -- -- this thing.
Two against one carry.
I thought that that was pretty compelling testimony though that he heard this bull case without even seeing who was screaming.
From a TV monitor and new in his bones that it was his nephew.
That's pretty compelling testimony and plant that was more compelling -- -- -- testimony about hearing.
That voice and believing that it was traded on Martin's.
And particularly more compelling than.
The testimony at Trayvon Martin's brother who said that he needed to listen to it many times or did listen to it many times before he made a determination with sure and confident that.
Outlets in fact his brother do you think that.
The background of that particular witness the the uncle adds credibility since both the mothers have a true vested interest.
In having it being Verisign and so that their -- in the case of George Zimmerman.
Will not be convicted in this case whereas -- uncle was law enforcement and military and it's you know swore that he would never even save a relative in this situation.
That's a great point because of course the mothers each have.
The identical level of wanting to back here in particular voice.
This witness also of course obviously is related as well.
But as Carey said.
-- you don't necessarily even need to make comparisons because as a defense where.
If you have one person saying and the other -- and -- -- just even in around.
The ballpark of credibility there's no way juror Trier of fact can conclude one way or the other now wanna jump back to some -- -- earlier which is the fault that.
Don't forget he was always going to be a defense witness.
Because locked in concrete.
Is his analysis all the way back -- the beginning that he couldn't tell who was screaming.
And that's like Hamas but they don't knock out punch on this issue really as the father said -- and Brothers and that they weren't -- but the brother correcting himself on the stand and remember everyone's under oath.
That he just didn't want to believe it was his -- and that's understandable and the reality is is that you know as a juror.
I think in fairness they understand the emotional.
Aspect of this then of course you want to be.
You want to believe obviously that your own relative wasn't -- Person responsible for -- the aggressor.
Course -- want to ask you questions something came to mind over the weekend the testimony of the lead investigator and -- Georgia ring you can see is listening as soon as there is any court activity.
We are that when the jury comes in -- clearly -- because everyone will -- -- will will go back to live coverage then but in the meantime.
-- the lead investigator said that when he was questioning George Zimmerman.
He used a technique in the Supreme Court allows this he actually lied to George Zimmerman and said he was sure that the encounter was caught on camera.
-- -- surveillance -- somewhere like we know the Boston bombers war right and he said George said to him.
Oh thank goodness I was hoping someone would capture what.
And then the officer was allowed to say that he interpreted that to be that George Zimmerman did not in ten didn't have the malice.
That would be required to prove second degree murder and he believed that George truly had just defended himself.
And how probative.
Well it is allowable.
But to the issue of how -- it is I think that it actually diminish the credibility to some extent.
The detective the investigator with the jurors.
Jurors don't like to hear police officers investigators detectives.
Lie even if -- something that they are.
Legally permitted to do to a defendant so I think that that somewhat diminished is credibility.
But at the same time I think that.
It does in -- it's.
It is opinion ultimately that George Zimmerman was truthful and ultimately he did say George Zimmerman he believes -- George Zimmerman to be truthful.
You know overruled that.
And then asked the jury to strike that but you really just can't un ring that bell they heard that testimony that that investigator believed him to be truthful.
And I think that that goes a long way toward helping the defense.
