Join us from Boston defense attorney racial south and from Boynton beach Florida defense attorney Michelle Cisco.
Headline in the Zimmerman trial today is that George Zimmerman will not testify in his own behalf correct.
It's -- that's right.
That's right silence is golden I think is really the one of the headlines here and and -- it.
It's not a surprise it really is the right move -- if if you are my client I absolutely would not put him on he basically if testify anyway.
Through video and audio and yes -- nothing to gain by getting on the scandal Leo examine the -- though in all I wanna hear would have.
-- at night in disguise it the most wanted to people who would there.
And and so you say is nothing regaining its -- this say look this is what happens is why I did what I did is what I did.
-- -- -- -- -- -- Wouldn't be worth well.
Well you know when he opens himself up to cross examination I don't -- -- who's telling the truth the cross examination is gonna do what.
I ate it could you know he is not professional witness as opposed -- law enforcement officers are medical examiners who are yet but added I -- that -- look I'm I'm cut.
And through this is -- cut through the thing -- you know.
You are looking at a from a legal point of viewing -- absolutely where.
If on the defense attorney I -- Zimmermann they're not go anywhere near that -- -- he's not -- right right because it's too many things that could happen and we think we have.
You're acquittal in our pocket.
But from a truth point of view.
If you sit on -- sure you want this guy to tell you what that.
There's no question these jurors are dying to hear everyone else want him to testify.
But the judges get to instruct these jurors -- guess what.
He has a right to remain silent it's in the constitution and all right and I we all know that but the perception is that he has some in the high rise on up there.
Now I wanna play -- -- -- front perhaps most controversial thing that happened.
In this entire court proceeding ruled today.
Have you made any decisions are as to whether or not you want to testify -- -- -- checked.
-- removes you have you made a decision as to whether or not you wanna test playing OK I I object to that question defense.
Overall record is entitled to acquire mr.
-- determination as to whether or not he wants to test fire.
Zimmerman have you made a decision as to whether -- -- you want to testify in this case not not at this time.
I think you guys did that to show the jury that she'd like to hear what German and say it's I think that's what you did -- Well but but you know what it was outside of the presence of the jury the jury didn't see those fireworks at -- fireworks between the two -- Last night as well why did earlier on Friday -- -- why did the -- -- that I and and thank you for correcting me and I thought the jury heard that.
Why did the judge did a lot of why was she so anxious to know whether Zimmer was gonna testify when that would have up.
Expose itself in -- due time anyway.
-- You know what eight it's interesting because normally it and it ends in terms of my experience the judge will wait until the end of the defense case and maybe she's exhaust that maybe she's trying to do you know religious sites you don't really -- all I -- -- it.
Because I thought it was unions you don't OK let's go to Boston it -- Rachel you you have this guy coming in now and we don't have pictures have no cameras in the courtroom in Boston but from the Associated Press report.
He's -- say looking using the AP's work.
Who waving blowing kisses and is actually it doesn't support -- of his that we.
Saw one of them in a cold open they think he's a great guy.
So this is going to be a circus trial while this guy's gonna play to the cameras right he pled not guilty everybody knows he's guilty.
Well but everybody doesn't know that he's guilty because under our system of justice you're not guilty until the government proves he's guilty beyond -- reason you know going right -- being -- earth Rachel it doesn't think he's guilty one.
He got -- well I put a month program tomorrow.
Give me wondering well.
Now now he's only accused at this point okay if this is another lemur is Arizona well yeah.
Didn't show about that -- -- -- Let's try to throw -- everybody knows he's guilty he's gonna turn into a clown posse shall he's trial now.
I'm sorry but I I can't say oh no it's a lot of baloney and with a capital T capital where did I tell on the tail off the trial is he.
Take -- DL okay.
He's gonna take a DL is -- -- Italian penalty and -- you know execute him the trial is not.
A bunch of crap OK I know -- know narrowness of the trying to.
-- for anybody to pretend that he isn't guilty his attorneys the idiots outside supporting him.
Anybody to pretend.
I'm this I'm gonna -- it.
He did it -- -- ladies thanks very much next.
