    The final arguments were fine, but the prosecution's rebuttal was excellent - passionate and emotional - especially considering his all-female audience. I feel it will be very tough for them to avoid a conviction on one charge or the other. A life-long Democrat Judge certainly didn't help Zimmerman's case any. While nobody cares a whit for the likes of Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton, the state's real agenda here is to send a chilling message to one and all who might find themselves in a self-defense situation - 'Don't shoot, ever. Please, just die. If the bad guy doesn't get you, we will.'

    Seems like Zimmerman did not exercise the leetle grey cells as Hercule used to say.

    Even a LEO can use Diplomacy / Discretion even misdirection, rather than force when confronting a possible suspect, you get better results.

    You see a suspicious male you want to question,

    Excuse Me sir, did you happen to see a big white guy run by ? no ? then act friendly and get the answers you need without alarming the suspect.

    Unrelated incident: I was in a horrible section of projects of Brooklyn on a service call, a guy tries to rob Me, he is armed with a snubby revolver pointed at Me, a no win situation, right ? then I hear a siren way off, I act very nervous and yell the cops are coming ! We got to run !
    It worked, he ran off, even dropped his gun into a waste can.
