    Dr. Rao noticed that Martin's injuries on his hands are consistent with hitting someone. #Zimmermanon9

    Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 1m
    Dr. Rao admits that more than one blow could have caused #Zimmermanon9 's injuries depending on the scenario.

    The state asked Dr. Rao only to evaluate #Zimmermanon9's injuries not Martin's.

    Self defense is legal to prevent great bodily harm. The state is trying to show #Zimmermanon9 exaggerated the danger.

    OM trying to get the ME to say GZ could have been 'slammed' into concrete more than once...if someone took his head and hit one side, then the other?
    objection, facts not in evidence, sustained..

    She says had to strain to look and try to see what OM is suggesting, if the injuries, bruises he mentions were there, you could see them...

    She's looking at her own photos, OM goes to get them and is looking at them...

    Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 2m
    Dr. Rao believes that one impact could have caused all of #Zimmermanon9 's injuries to the back of his head.

    Dr. Rao says she is not saying #Zimmermanon9 suffered only one blow

    Kathi Belich, WFTV Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 7m
    Dr. Rao admits #Zimmermanon9 could have been swallowing his own blood from his nose while on his back.

    OM showing state's exhibit of L side of GZ head, asking dr. about swelling or bruising, no, that is natural shape of head, not swelling or bruising or she could see it clearly...

    OM showing state's exhibit of R side of GZ head, she does see a bruise there but also have to look at conture (sp) of head, OM asks why not one long injury if it's one contact with concrete...agrees possible 2 separate injuries...

    Shows her exhibit #69 and agrees swelling there, but not significant and is connected/result of the bruising, not a separate wound...

    Exhibit #70, sees swelling but also result/connected to bruise behind ear, not separate wound...

    OM presses the ME to give a min/max of times GZ was hit or slammed on concrete...she says min. of 3

    He asks her for max of hits..she says I don't know, you have to give me a scenario and I can see if possible...he asks about 6 hits/ she says no, he asks why, she said because the injuries are so minor...

    Swelling and bruising are joined and are one hit...not two...jury can make that determination...yes..

    OM..how many on the back? one in her opinion...more hits to back? possible?
    she says that lacerations are so close together, she thinks from one...OM goes on about different scenarios, she says head would have to be really contorted to have been hit like that...


    Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 2m
    Dr. Rao says the maximum number of times the back of #Zimmermanon9 's head hit the concrete could be four.

    Court in session...OM brings up an objection to judge about the state requesting GZs school/college records when he studied criminal justice or wanted to ride with police.

    Mr. Mantei: State returns and says they have 4 witnesses to introduce, brought up during Hannity interview that GZ had knowledge regarding police techniques and laws.

    OM goes on with judge about he was not allowed to get Trayvon's school records, and doesn't think state should be able to get GZs. Judge explains to him that state has a basis to do this per their stated exhibits on GZs course work on his degree including a certificate from a class in criminal justice. She agrees that all his courses would not be relevant, just courses concerning criminal justice studies.

    OM said that state created the evidence (Hannity interview) and now try to impeach the defendant on what GZ said about not knowing about 'stand your ground law'. OM says against case law...Judge raises her voice and tells him that this pertains to the state's theory of the case and they have the right to present evidence to support it the same as he has been doing. He gets all upset and rattles on...she tells him he needs to find the case law that supports what he is saying.

    State says defense made no objection to this evidence when submitted.

    Mantei says defendant told Hannity he did not know about SYG defense but he had access to the book and attended the course on it.

    OM says he can do....judge interrupts and tells him to do his research and they will recess on this....

    @SanfordOne State arguing to show #Zimmerman's school records for criminal justice degree to show he knew of Stand Your Ground.

    Bill S....thinks the judge will rule for state since she said this is part of their theory of the case...that GZ knew and used the law he knew about...if this proves GZ lied about this, can we accept his other statements about what happened...the professor will testify and may be able to verify GZ did attend the class on SYG...state won't have one big stab but a million cuts on GZs credibility...

    Bill S. says to allow the defense to bring in TMs school records, the state would have to open the door and present evidence on TMs character and have not done that yet...
