I could see people pointing at the prosecution and saying that they dropped the ball. But then again, maybe they're turning it around as yesterday seemed to be the best day for the prosecution so far. It looks like they finally did a decent job of putting doubt on Zim. Though, I could see the jury not finding Zim to be completely credible, but credible enough. They might not truly believe everything about his story, but not lacking enough to point to murder 2.

If you don't understand what I mean, punch yourself in the eye (or knee) from ~~20cm, then punch yourself in the eye (or knee) from ~~50cm. Big difference.

Zim said he checked TM's hands because he felt TM was hitting him with bricks. The jury has to have noticed that Zim's account is pretty exaggerated, but I'm not sure if it's enough to completely discredit Zim. How much does the jury buy into Zim's account? Do they feel he dressed it up to justify lethal force?

The judge already threw the case by not allowing voice experts to testify it was Trayvon's screams heard in the audio.

That was the single most important piece of evidence for 2nd degree murder for the prosecution.

Nothing else holds any weight.

Not guilty verdict. You can bet on it.

How do you figure when you had just as many experts opposing it as supporting it. The FBI specialist that testified the other day said it is impossible for a stranger or a machine to analyze someone's screams to any degree of accuracy. It got tossed because its not reliable, simple as that, for every expert you found that said he knew definitively who it was 100%, you had another one who said they couldn't tell.

So what?

It should be up to the jury to decide, not the judge. If we have one expert that says it's Zimmerman, and another says it is not, the experts should still be allowed since it is integral to proving malice at the very last moment. In the end it is all an intepretation of evidences and no evidence is ever definitive.

And yes, there are special guidelines and analysis that can be taken to identify the voices. Merely throwing it out (when it is critical to prove a 2nd degree) is throwing the case away.

The jury has heard the audio. And will get to decide based on what they hear. They will not get to hear manipulated audio which is what the audio experts would have had to do to isolate the voices. The judge accepted the FBI audio expert's argument that there was not enough clear, high quality sound to be able to compare the voices. That audio sample was compromised at the source (phones not being high quality recorders and in this case being too far away from the screams) and further manipulation would be unreliable.

Because it wasn't real evidence.

Ya based on filmsy testimonial. The guy is saying it is difficult to determine the voices based on his own hearing, but there are techniques that can determine pitch and other sound stimuli that can match voices pretty accurately.

The only person manipulating the outcome is the judge.

Proving the screams belong to Trayvon is proving 70% of the case. That is proof of an act of malice. A boy is pleading for his life and he is shot in cold blood. Manslaughter is thrown out; it is no act of defense; who cares about the racial foreplay, the inconsistent witness testimonials, all the prosecution needs is that argument that proves beyond a reasonable doubt he acted out of malice.

The judge knows this; she was put in place because she was more likely to be favorable towards Zimmerman.

Of course you think it's a conspiracy.

There was never proof it was Trayvon screaming. It's your fault for believing bullshit "experts" in the first place after the FBI already came out and said it was impossible to tell who was screaming.

You really think they have some magic technology that can match a voice heard from outside, through several walls, then recorded over the phone?

Ya the conspiracy card. Let's stick with logic and reason. Did you know who testified; did you know what he said? Did you know he failed to use scientific standards to identify sound stimuli? Making him an FBI does not automatically make him an "expert." An expert is someone who carries out such standards to formulate his evidence, and not merely going by his hearing.

There was never any proof because the proof was not allowed in the first place loser.

You are literally the only person who is complaining about this. You wanted Zimmerman to be guilty and you latched on to this supposed "evidence". Now it's been thrown out of court because it's bullshit and you cry conspiracy. You're a joke.
