I would also appreciate it if you would answer the other question I asked: How do you know them so well as to know what they talk about when you're not around and when a camera isn't in their face?
Your posts seem to be classic case of "if I don't see it, it doesn't exist" which is an illogical position to take.

This tragedy was used because of the SYG law. Why this tragedy over all the other murders happening every day? What's so special about this one? I know. Do you? Tell us.
The prosecution doesnt just have to produce a dead body and get to call it a day. They have to prove murder beyond a reasonable doubt. The defense never has the burden of proof placed upon them. That's just not the way it works. Our legal system is not set up that way.Burden of proof = There is a dead body and you made it that way. From that point, you have to prove that it was self defense.
Again, no. The defense has to make the jury beleive that there is a reasonable doubt that Zimmerman committed murder (or possibly manslaughter in this case from the rumors). They do not have to prove Zimmerman was being attacked by Martin they only have to make 1 out of 12 jurors reasonably believe he might have been attacked. The prosecution has to prove to 12 out of 12 jurors that there is no way Zimmerman acted in self defense.The defense has to prove that it was self defense and in doing so, you have to prove that he was being attacked by Treyvon which would be a crime by Treyvon.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
