Those injuries on the back of his head... when do you estimate they were caused? Seconds before the gunshot, perhaps? As much as 10 seconds before, maybe? How much blood do you think would have started to flow by the time George finally got control of his gun, fired the fatal shot, and watched as Trayvon sat back on his haunches in some manner, said "You got me!" then fell off to the side? Would that blood have flowed up towards his chin while he was lying on his back? If he'd been rolling his head from side to side, to avoid Trayvon's blows, shouldn't that blood flow have been smudged and haphazard, rather than moving smoothly in one direction? Think about it. Gravity never lies.
"I would say there's reasonable doubt. I would say nobody knows who started the initial fight," Dershowitz told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV. "Remember, it's monumentally irrelevant who's morally guilty here."
"Whether or not Zimmerman was a racist and racially profiled and shouldn’t have been doing it and didn’t listen to police, that's all irrelevant in Florida law," Dershowitz said. "The case begins when the first blow was struck, essentially. And we don’t know who struck the first blow. We don’t know if Trayvon Martin came out from behind of a dark area and jumped him and got him down.
"And as long as we don’t know that, [and] we don’t know whose voice it was who was yelling, 'Help me! Help me!' That's reasonable doubt."

Youtube video just released by the Broward County ...
It's encouraging the youth 'of color' not to riot and be destructive after the verdict.
It says that protesting with voices is fine .. but not with your hands ....

The prosecution is trying to get the jury to feel like "if Trayvon was looking down the barrel of a gun he would yell for 'help'"...
actually, you would be quiet and stop beating the guy you are punching.

The jury needs to believe, beyond a reasonable doubt, that GZ did not act in self defense. If not it was self defense which is a defense to murder and manslaughter.
Ideally this is accurate, however I believe the truth here is that...
