A resident of the Florida community where George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin last year after a confrontation took the stand Friday and described going out to investigate a noise and seeing one person straddling another with and throwing punches thrown down "MMA-style" the person on the ground.

John Good said he was watching TV with his wife when they heard a noise and he went out to investigate, despite his wife warning him not to. At first, he thought a dog might be attacking someone, but as he moved closer, he said he observed what looked like "a tussle" between two people.

"It looked like a tussle," Good said. "I could only see one person. At one point, I yelled out, 'What's going on? Stop it,' I believe," Good said.

Under questioning by Prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda, Good said one of the combatants was straddling a man lying face up on the pavement, and throwing punches. The testimony appeared to corroborate Zimmerman's claims that he shot the 17-year-old African-American with a legally registered gun in self defense, as he was being pummeled.

"I could tell that the person on the bottom had a lighter skin color," testified Good, who also said the person on the bottom appeared to be wearing "white or red," while the one on top wore dark clothing. Zimmerman identified that day as Hispanic and was wearing a red jacket. That also would corroborate Zimmerman's claims he was on the losing end of a violent confrontation when he fired the fatal shot.

the only crime committed is charging Zimmerman with a crime and the riots that are going to happen when he is found not guilty thanks to the race baiters Sharpton, Jackson, and the lame stream media. if anyone who needs to be charged with a crime is them

None of this really matters. Zimmerman is already convicted. The trial is just for show.

If the jury doesn't come back with the desired verdict, the judge will simply overrule their decision and submit the one that he was instructed to give.

Wrong

They do not have the power to detain/arrest/charge

The ones who concocted, the ill fated affidavit are, the ones responsible

Mainly.... Angela Corey

Zimmerman won't be found guilty, so there's nothing to worry about.

Well I say bring it on. I'm tired of the ill-informed blacks in this country seeking retribution for this kind of nonsense. I think me as a white guy am sick of their little temper tantrums and seeking to inflict harm on innocents that have nothing to do with what happens in Florida. With political tensions as high as they are and division at what it is, I would argue that temper tantrum rioting by blacks will be met with a stronger response from white American's and Hispanics.

Agreed...however, Zimmerman's fate has already been decided. He'll be lucky if he just receives a life sentence. I'm waiting for the racialists to go for the death penalty, after he's convicted.

Got any evidence for this?

And yet they are the only ones who all along were providing them. And those facts they presented keep getting confirmed everyday of this trial.
Go figure.

It's probably best to know what you're talking about before you speak. Just sayin'.

And what facts have been presented in this case to make you so vehemently opposed to GZ's innocence?

An insignificant fact, that has nothing to do with anything. The only relevance the fact that she's a woman has, is that she most certainly coward to her government handlers, when she received her instructions.

An unarmed teenager who was doing no wrong, minding his own business was shot because GZ was paranoid.

There is no evidence that this judge is being instructed by our government to give the verdict they want.

Trayon Martin was black. That's the only fact needed, for some folks.

Who ultimately is responsible in permitting this type of behavior?

Why was, the local government *state's attorney* swayed by, the uproar from the African American community and their brother and sisters in arms the guilty white liberal group.... knowing well, the state did not have a case against Z?

Yes, that's what the evidence has showed all right.

If TM was so close to his father's home at the time when he confronted GZ, then instead of confronting GZ he should have gone home, and called police himself if he thought this "creepy ass cracker" was following him...Rational people don't look for confrontation.

This is why there are no white males on the jury.

And don't worry about riots. White women know best and they will send Zimmerman to prison.
