The trial of George Zimmerman

Trayvon Martin’s position may prove his innocence

Defendant George Zimmerman arrives for his murder trial in Semimole circuit court July 10, 2013 in Sanford, Florida. Judge Debra Nelson has ruled that the jury can also consider a manslaughter charge along with the second-degree murder charge in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. [Gary W.

The defense witness says, in his opinion, Trayvon Martin was leaning over George Zimmerman when Zimmerman shot him. [“Teen was above Zimmerman before gunfire, witness testifies,” News, July 10.]

So what does that prove, that he was fighting for his life against an attacker with a gun? What was he expected to do when attacked by someone with a gun, except to fight for his life?
