They never had a case for Murder Two:
Jonathan Good, one of Zimmerman’s neighbors, testified that he saw Martin straddling Zimmerman in a “ground and pound” position and appeared to be punching him as Zimmerman yelled for help.
This isn’t true, though:
But Good also undermined Zimmerman’s claim that Martin pounded his head into the pavement.
“I couldn’t see that,” he said under cross-examination.
He didn’t say it didn’t happen — he just said he couldn’t see it. That’s of evidence against it — it’s just the absence of evidence for it. And his physical injuries are sufficient evidence for it.
This was never anything but a political show trial. And now they’ve established the predicate for the race riots (and perhaps Zimmerman lynching, as so many were threatening on Twitter yesterday) to come.
[Update early evening]
Why, yes. the Zimmerman trial is a racial circus.
