Let's start with us talking about sort of the credibility of this witness list so far at least five people.
Plus one -- George Zimmerman uncle having testified that he believed it was a woman's voice on Friday.
This includes two federal air marshals former Vietnam combat medic.
These are people who sort of unimpeachable.
Background sound almost -- what this is gonna mean to the jury Lou wouldn't.
And he's a great opportunity for the defense to corroborate what.
Zimmerman has said all along.
Who was the aggressor -- wasn't the aggressor where Zimmerman was in the tussle with the treatment.
And I think it's great and the quality of the witnesses is rare.
He -- so I know people such great credentials right to comment on your on your case like this and on the footsteps of the.
Others when they're not calling.
Experts in other not calling witness experts are calling just regular folks who know him.
And have a personal relationship with them and then to have been able to get people -- this quality.
I didn't let -- say a lot to the jury.
It's it's really rare and it also slot that is character to and the way do you -- through the back door yeah I think we have people and that's fun for you to have these kind of credentials.
Even though they're not testifying for you in -- -- be objective I think it says a lot about who the person is an undercurrent.
That the defenses really trying to get out there.
In terms of and so they don't have them.
So what's -- what's your reaction.
Oversight don't tread on Louis area here but I hope I open nation to respect like a lawyer -- have been around the world like you know how to start and -- that.
But you look at the strategy here.
Insanity defense is now the opportunities he with the prosecution has put forward and with -- looking forward looking for those key things -- think haven't pressed the jury or may have impressed and and tried it -- -- that.
And I think this this this when he issued the talking about today which is the one when call athletes and they he said she said.
You know some said they thought it was straight on what you thought it was -- -- we have a litany of individuals who are coming forward and saying that they believe that it is George -- women's voice.
And and you unequivocally that this is him no matter what and all the -- -- -- for the same reasons that the user on a fight people who kind of as you suggest in the show me your company tell you who are -- -- -- also cooperating his kind of character if you will so it is setting up I think a very difficult.
Hurdle for the -- overcome in their minds how these people can be seeing it -- resentment.
On the other -- prosecution side that a couple people neighbors probably didn't know him thought it was him.
In the members -- Mark -- -- on -- but the other two mothers can have both said.
When they thought it was both their sons and I don't I can't say without a chance to one another out -- so you're talking about here trying to put together a a list of people who -- -- going after this one issue and should not the only issue I'm -- that.
The defense has a number of key things that the now want to go after may have not been the original strategy to win six or.
What with the prosecution put on you know gonna go to target those key points in any weaknesses on the front of the.
Do you think -- that's the crux of the case of the boy Oscar de tape that's becoming so much about that that's might as far as the counselor in case this would be my concern.
Am -- making a mini trial.
-- voices in a fight and that's a bit -- today.
Because the place to be is with the charts at the -- -- give mystery as to depraved indifference and he get to that charge.
I think the defense is a much better place if they're focused on the minutia of these conversations and he said.
He said she said you could lose the jury.
A little bit on this and if they feel that it was not George Zimmerman.
And it was straight on Martin.
They could think that's the one particular morally it's sad but it's not to think that the fast going down -- dangerous path right now -- very and I anymore when I was doing a great job and in you know it's easy backseat drive here but there.
I think the point is that it is a very dangerous place to go and to keep the jury's focus on what they really -- -- focus.
Is really what the defense has to do here the prosecution has been very good to diverted because their evidence is not.
So they've been able to divert it and it's it's it's it.
It's a turnaround.
Building -- -- throw at this it's usually the defense that's trying to divert the the attention of the jury -- -- was I think the prosecution trying to divert the jury on these side issues.
As little as you know it's it's kind of both staging right to stage in decades -- is -- that is showmanship here.
And both on the prosecution side and -- the defense side is that they they have the theme they have -- wanna get too.
You know to get into these people and he's -- certain circumstances and maybe try to you know -- we refuse certain elements of what the other others put on.
The end of the day it is who is the best person to gonna -- this and get the people in the right order leave the right impression to the jury.
And kind of you know take away this key points so we'll see who is to be successful and a -- and.
This case and -- they're gonna lose ground because I think they were in good ground going into the end of the prosecution case.
And the real quick -- and prosecution wants another defense and offense was on the place I really did I think they they were going to place that say we're done.
We're ready to close on this case you haven't made out your elements and here's here's here's the case jurors make the verdict.
And they took a chance now by playing -- defense case which always -- a jury think about weighing.
Which side is better -- really going with the proof of beyond a reasonable -- he.
