Now THIS is a winner. I'm genuinely interested in what he's saying . . . he makes good sense. I'm sure he has the jury's full attention.

I liked how he showed the chart to Bernie to give him the chance to object. Reinforce for the jury that this is accurate information.

Bernie had a sly grin on his face. HE knws why Omara is showing it to him. Funny.

Ok, I won't be able to watch today....We have a party happening tomorrow for Laura's and my 25th anniversary. So, I have the honeydo list as long as my arm, plus relatives are arriving in town today, so, going to be busy....I just wish some of y'all could attend...It's going to be amazing.

So, I'll be relying on you guys to keep me up to date....Thanks.

I love this self-defense exhibit. What a brilliant thing to do.

What else could they be doing? The judge has already told them to stop texting.

If nothing else, he respects the jury enough to not be YELLING at them.

"twice" by NEN GZ was asked, "is he doing anything else"............. The state doesn't want focus on that.

Did anyone else notice the Martin family come in late? I think that wasn't an accident. I think it was a big ole middle finger to the defense.

This is easier to listen to tan the prosecution.

I had to turn it off yesterday.

I couldn't stand the lies nor his tone of voice.

Agreed. It was a show yesterday. I don't even think Bernie believes what he was saying. This is natural and easy because it's truth.

This seems more like a conversation with the jury tan a screaming match.

More personable.

I had the same feeling. I wondered if that was just my bias, or if others felt that way...

Yes, kind of overweight, blondish/brownish hair.

Nobody asked all the way through the trial what Martin was doing from the time he ran to the time he jumped Zimmerman.

I am glad the question was asked.

Kinda proud Mark O'Mara used my point, there is NO evidence presented in THIS trial, after GZ told the NEN operator "ok" after being told "we don't need you to do that" (follow TM), that he did follow.
