    I certainly hope you're wrong on this point. Like to believe that most of the threats are just ppl venting, rather than actually meaning it.

    After reading the jury instruction the only verdict I can see is not guilty. This is soley based on the instructions which requires my feelings to be left out of the decision.

    Apparently the evidence will be sent into the room with the jury. In other trials I've watched the jury had to request items to be sent in for review.

    That being said, the prosecution's whole argument is void. How long do you think it will take the jury to deliberate?

    The only thing that would need to be brought into them would be the gun in this case -- if it were to go back to them, it would be handled by a court officer I believe, they wouldn't be able to do other than look at it from whatever angle. And I'm not even sure if they are definitely allowed to see it even then. And drugs never go back to the jury room because... well, there's only one reason I can think of anyone ever had to come up with that rule, some jury somewhere must have gotten coked out of their gourds or something :)

    I do not know about you nana-but I suspect if someone was on top of you MMA style and beating the hell out of you and you had a gun and could get to your gun-you would blow their ass away- I certainly would and not think twice about it

    the sad thing to me is this trial is not about the evidence but abut race-and your beloved prezBO and his DOJ both fed into it

    Didn't the prosecution insulate earlier in this trial that Zimmerman profile Martin and that some how his actions were based on some kind of hatred towards particular individuals or race? Their closing argument,the prosecution said this case was not about race. Maybe I'm wrong. This was another red flag for self admittance of a weak case presented.

    They kept saying profiling, but it was always as a criminal. They had no actual evidence of profiling by race or they would have used it, but DLR must have referred to profiling dozens of times in his closing. I don't think it was in the hope that the jury *wouldn't* think of it as racially motivated.

    The dispatcher is not considered "law enforcement". The actual dispatcher said in testimony that he can only make suggestions.

    This even makes it harder for the prosecution to push the ill will or hatred argument for the murder 2. How often does a judge allow a lesser charge this late in trial? I would think this doesn't happen very often.

    Is it me or does the judge appear to have a lisp?

    Nicely done, Speed. I was thinking more along the lines of the Gap Girl. Can you try that one?

    Do jurors typically get a physical copy of those instructions to refer back to during their deliberations? Seems like an important tool. For example, if one juror says, "Yeah, but why didn't Zimmerman testify?", then another can go, "We can't consider that, remember? Refer to page ..."

    Would you want GZ roaming your street? Yes or no. THAT is my question.

    Wait, did I miss something ?

    Were the alternates discharged before the jury retired to deliberate ?

    They should have sat there in the courtroom and not gone back, if they weren't.

    I didn't see the beginning of the instructions, so did she do it then ?
