No, that case is similar to this one in some ways, though different in others.

Jude didn't have any injuries, but he also had his pregnant girlfriend with him. Zimmerman was alone and had some injuries.

Neither were arrested on that night as both claimed self defense. Jude claimed Adkins had a pipe, but all that was found was his dog leash. We all know Zimmerman's case, no point in bringing it up.

The main difference, however, the state of Arizona was able to disprove any self defense claims. Florida has lacked in that department, again. They rushed due to the media and $10,000 bounties being fully okay.

And even if Zim is convicted. from what I've heard White and Mexican allied gangs control prisons. Wouldn't they love Zim since he's "White Hispanic"?

Quote:
"The Aryan Brotherhood has an alliance with La Eme (The Mexican Mafia) as the two are mutual enemies of Black Guerilla Family. According to a federal indictment, the AB has partnered with Asian gangs to import heroin from Thailand.

Here's a list of their affiliates:
*Mexican Mafia*, *Nazi Lowriders* (has Hispanic members), Public Enemy No. 1, Hells Angels, Gambino crime family, Philadelphia crime family, Irish Mob, and some *Asian gangs*

That's not the kind of "skipping" he was talking about. The kind he referred to actually is associated with gang members. jmo

found after googling.
a jury of six people is allowed because it is not capital case.

Here's a recap for anyone who missed the defenses closing argument and State's rebuttal this morning:

> Mark O'Mara:

I don't have to prove why this was self defense or prove my clients innocence, only reasonable doubt. But I'll prove self defense and prove my clients innocence anyway
>lists reasons it was self defense
>solidifies Reasonable Doubt and solidifies that the State has not met their burden of proof
>Now, the prosecution will probably argue emotion appeals because of their lack of evidence, and due to the lack of evidence they will tell you to fill in the blanks and connect the dots of what they have failed to prove, but do the right thing, thank you.

> John Guy gets up:
>THE HUMAN HEART GUIDES US AND MOVES US!

Desperate.

Trayvon was using the concrete sidewalk as a weapon. So yes, he armed himself with concrete.
