This is for today's testimony and events.
This thread is for discussing the testimony given during todays proceedings only.
Please try and keep things on topic.
I don't think it hurts GZ that the judge ruled his previous calls to 911 can be played in court. If I were the defense, I would play every one of them...as well as give detailed reports on crimes committed there and by whom.
I'm not defending him because he's black. I'm defending him because I believe Zimmermen went after him because he's black.Why is everyone so quick to defend TM just because he is black? I mean really, I thought the Civil Rights issues were a thing of the past.....

Not for "suspicious activity" and over the previous 2 years, he didn't.
He didn't go after anyone. He kept on eye on him presumably until the LEOs arrived. We can't change the race of the suspicious person. The fact that he was black doesn't protect him from being deemed suspicious.
No. It is not. The mere act of "profiling" by a private citizen is not against the law.
This isn't about the "mere act" of profiling, but profiling someone he wrongly profiled who turned out not to be there to break into houses, as he wrongly assumed; and who had every right to be there. His irresponsible profiling led to a confrontation and ultimately, a death. If the prosecution can prove doing so was either negligent or reckless, then it's criminal.
Playing her 911 call seems to be an attempt to gain sympathy from the jury, because the information doesn't seem helpful in any other way.
