Closing argument for the defense, with rebuttal closing argument by the State.   The jury will receive instructions then start deliberations.

Croakerqueen123 had problems with the recording of the State’s rebuttal closing.  The next video is courtesy of Axiom Amnesia. The sound is not as good as the other videos.

  1. I found this on yahoo. I missed this exchange that day. I just LOVE this Judge!!

    http://tv.yahoo.com/news/judge-debra-nelson-became-zimmerman-trials-breakout-star-193514196.html

    JUDGE DEBRA NELSON: Please don’t go off focus here.

    MARK O’MARA, ZIMMERMAN’S DEFENSE ATTORNEY: No, no, no —

    NELSON: Don’t no, no, me, either. Let’s stop this right now. I have told counsel before, first of all, nobody talks over the other. The court reporter can only take one person down at a time. I will have not any speaking objections in the courtroom.

    DON WEST, ZIMMERMAN’S DEFENSE ATTORNEY: I would like to make a speaking objection.

    NELSON: You can’t make an objection to your own question.

    • @Mindyme. That was a HOOT!!!

      O’Mara likes telling the judge what she “must” do, and Vanilla Ice Cream West wants to argue even when there’s nothing to argue about.

      Thanks for sharing that exchange.

        • Anything absolutely anything to prove that Trayvon would walk up to anyone and assault them. What got me is they kept saying about Trayvon playing football in MIDDLE SCHOOL!

          Seriously! He was about 14 years old in pee wee football, not high school football. That was suppose give Trayvon a athletic strength surpassing a trained MMA fighter.

          And that bogus theory twitch guys animation only show the very end, of just fogen walking along la di da and Trayvon walking up to him to hit him, bs. Like Guy stated that was like reading the end of a book. Without know how it got started.

          Bottom line when depraved mind got out of that truck after following Trayvon in that truck was the primal onset of tragedy to follow. No one brought that on but fogen.

          I strongly believe the jury will convict fogen Manslaughter with a gun. its’ not rocket science.

          one reason BUT FoR defesne fogen actions. But For fogen getting out of the truck he had been following on foot to innocently walk into the dark ‘in the same direction’ as the person ‘whom he was so afraid’ was far from reasonable thinking. The flashlight tells on him. When his other choice was to stay in the truck or drive to the other address.

          Damn fool Google is fogen friend, his dum ass could have googled the address! From the safety of the Truck with the police only minutes on their way he had other choices.

          And to hell with West, he’ll be in fear from no on. There will be no security with hm or those daughters’ and that fear will grow, they will have unfavorable mail that is going to scare the mess out of them. Every shadow, every person they see they will think ‘is gonna get ’em’.

          West is going to have a heart attack from fear.

            Funny you mentioned about West’ daughters. He sure has a lot faith in Karma that his bad behavior in disparaging a slain child won’t come back on his own children. Although I wish no ill will towards anyone’s child. (which pretty much includes all of us!)

            i truly would like to see west suffer from all his own disrespect, and others disrespect him as he did others.

            okay what i am about to say is not funny,, so here goes.

            yesterday when west jumped up. i noticed how this his waist to upper thigh area was puffy as if padded. hmmmmm, are those depends. well gosh darn must have been super absorbency depends.

            so how many fudgy greasy flatulent west couldn’t hold and had to sit in jury trial? eeeewwww but it happens.

            so yesterday that one had to be a whopper he just couldn’t sit in! short of saying “judge i can’t keep up at this pace’

          • The animation was a backdoor way of presenting GZ’s side so he wouldn’t have to take the witness stand. By the time it was edited, and re-edited, and re-edited again, O’Mara was left with an animation of “three positions.” The State has torn down, ripped apart, and turned the “straddling” story into dust. Not even a cartoon could help O’Mara recover.

          • my first thought when i saw that. like Guy said it was like reading the ending of a book. the only thing truthful that animations did show was exactly how far fogen walked from the truck. that is it. i’m sure the jury will also point that out and ask why did duh-fense make a cartoon showin fogen following Trayvon in the car first and getting out lost and confused on what street he was on scratchin his head aduh where did he go, where is the address?

            it surely was more than 100 ft than what omar said fogen had ventured.

            Whey west was whining about ‘unfair unfair’ it show their lack. they didn’t have a plan A or plan B of what to present and in what fashion.

            What made it all look weak was duh-fense witnesses, all those testifying as to what police officer do.and how to do it. oysterboi took it to anohter level. they kept treating fogen like he was an officer. fogen was not police. I believe the is important for the jurors to keep on the front burner when deciding to believe the witnesses. Because they all gave fogen the ‘blue wall respect/

            too bad State didn’t mention fogen said singleton, ‘no one questions your authority’

            i did see when Sybrina walked out of the room, omar got completely muffled and lost kept looking hard to his right as Sybrina walked out then back at the jury. lost all his momentum. i could see on his face discouragement of the effect of what he did cause. the jury had to give looks of disapproval to omar.

            i don’t care what JN said, but how omar and west conducted themselves did have a large impact on the jury and how they will decide the case.

          • Xena how many times do you think the jury has polled themselves about the verdict?

            I believe they started out polling about the verdict before deliberating. getting a better idea of where everyone stood on they choice and to further know each other concerns.
            i
            Albeit by now they have polled 3 times about the verdict.

            I truly believe they will have a verdict by morning, in time to go home and spend quality time hugging their children and families.

            It will be GUILTY, GUILTY OF MANSLAUGHTER WITH A GUN.

            I believe that the jury will understand that Trayvon ran away and had to fight off the stranger danger. Those lady jurors had to think of they own children, no way they could not

            If i am wrong i will own up to my err.

          • ic2fools. The jury has lots of evidence to go through. Their first charge is to see if it requires of verdict of guilty of murder in the 2nd degree.

          • Okay so after going through evidence to see if it fits the M2 charge then they will poll for their opinion of verdict.

            Then if necessary move to Manslaughter to review evidence again and so on.

            or

            go throug all the evidence making notes throughout how the evidence applies to each charge. and which charge has the most evidence to prove the validity of that charge is the one chosen.
