    OM talking about how the TM family listened to the tape of the crying together, and this is against LE procedure 101.

    Stephanie Wash ‏@WashNews 1m
    Juror b51 was just rubbing on her chin and neck. Juror e40 wih her usual body language - pouty face, hand on cheek.

    FWIW: Mark O'Mara has definitely consumed more water than prosecutor de la Rionda did during his closing on Thursday.

    Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 2m
    The defense is reminding the jury how Martin's father first said it was not his son's voice screaming. #Zimmermanon9

    Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 3m
    The defense slammed the city of Sanford for not isolating Martin's family members when listening to the 911 calls. #Zimmermanon9

    OM: Dr. diMaio gave us a good testimony of how the shot happened and it was not right on TMs skin as was said in the state's opening. The state has told you another way it could have happened, TM was retreating? Really? Where is one shred of evidence about this?

    Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 43s
    Says state only said #TrayvonMartin "might have been" or "could have been" backing up. "Could've beens don't belong in this courtroom"

    Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 25s
    O'Mara: "Where is once piece of evidence to support the absurdity they're trying to get you to buy?"

    What alternative did GZ have (other than shooting TM)? none...tell me what other alternative he had?

    Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 27s
    O'Mara says that #Zimmerman "had none" regarding options he had in deciding on shooting #TrayvonMartin

    Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 2m
    The defense joked that #Zimmermanon9 's trainer wouldn't let him shadow box for fear the shadow would win.

    Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 48s
    The defense slipped in that the state conceded Martin might have been on top without bringing up the switch in position. #Zimmermanon9

    FRIDAY JULY 12, 2013

    11:15 ish

    This is O'Mara:

    If Trayvon was doing what the State says, where's the blood? Showing a photo of Trayvon's chest with apparently some blood. Can't see.

    Showing what are purported to be life-size cut-out silhouettes of Trayvon and George. (As I see them up against a wall now, Trayvon looks a whole head taller than George. Like George is a miniature something poodle or something.)

    Showing a photo of George. Some b+w photo, can't see.

    Showing one of Trayvon's photos while he was alive. Calls him a nice kid, not bad. Talks about how the autopsy photos are so disturbing and not indicative of the real person.

    Favorite saying to Jury, "Really?" "Really?" "Come on."

    If George had intention to deceive, sarcastic talking about George's criminal justice knowledge of Miranda and self defense.

    No more visuals. Now going over instructions (his interpretation) with the Jury.

    O'Mara says that there is nothing serious or case-proving about there not being blood on #TrayvonMartin hands.

    OM saying the state showing the autopsy photos is just irrelevant and emotional. Shows pictures of GZ injuries and TMs from his post of the top of his body, and says these are the only pictures you need to used.
    TM attacked GZ from out of somewhere and this is supported by evidence.

    Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 4m
    The defense is using its cut outs of #Zimmermanon9 and Martin to show the size comparison.

    Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 55s
    O'Mara shows jury pic of #TrayvonMartin b4 the night of shooting. Says the autopsy photos don't show muscle tone b/c he lost 1/2 blood

    Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 4m
    O'Mara brings out gray cutouts that he uses to show jury of the sizes of #zimmerman and #TrayvonMartin

    Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 1m
    The defense says the jury should look at Martin's muscle tone. The jury did not see Fulton leave. #Zimmermanon9

    Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 2m
    Sybrina Fulton walked out when the defense showed how the state showed them Martin's autopsy photos to elicit sympathy. #Zimmermanon9

    OM keeps saying 'really?' when he goes over what DLR said in his closing.

    Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 56s
    O'Mara now moving on to reasonable doubt explanation.

    Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 1m
    The defense said #Zimmermanon9 would also have known about miranda rights and still gave 6 statements.

    OM says he wishes they had a choice of 'completely innocent' because he would recommend that one. Tells jury they will have definitions of reasonable doubt and weighing evidence.

    Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 48s
    O'Mara says he wished jury could mark "completely innocent" on the verdict form. #zimmerman

    OM: Tells the jury to use only evidence to reach a decision, something you don't have a reasonable doubt about..don't use assumptions, use your common sense with logic. He says cannot be based on emotions...even if you find GZ not guilty in front of TMs mother. Cannot let emotions affect you. Welcome to the law and being on a jury.

    Did GZ reasonably believe he was in great bodily harm? He does not have to have anything but that fear...does not have to be actual injuries.

    Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 1m
    O'Mara: "You can't allow sympathy to bleed into it...You have to be better than you assumptions."

    O'Mara: "this is truly a tragedy, but I urge you to leave sympathy out." #zimmermanon9
    Retweeted by Kathi Belich, WFTV

    OM: If you have a reasonable doubt that GZ felt he was in bodily harm, then you must find him not guilty.

    Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 2m
    The defense challenged prosecutor John Guy to provide the evidence the defense says is missing in the case. #Zimmermanon9

    OM: This is the state's case and they have to prove it beyond a reasonable doubt with evidence.

    Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 7m
    O'Mara asks jury to ponder why he was the one who called Tracy Martin to testify. #zimmerman

    Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 6m
    Juror E6 leans toward O'Mara with her head to the side as she listens in.

    Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 2m
    O'Mara brought out a block of concrete to place in front if jury to make his point.

    Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 2m
    O'Mara says its "disgusting" that state contends concrete sidewalk def says #TrayvonMartin was armed with couldn't cause great injury

    Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 4m
    O'Mara: "That is not an unarmed teenager with Skittles trying to get home."

    Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 5m
    O'Mara questions the prosecution repeated use of quoting the profanity #zimmerman used in police calls. Asks "Do we really need that?"

    Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 4m
    The defense again criticized the state for screaming and cursing and exaggerating #Zimmermanon9 's voice.

    Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 7m
    The defense points out that the state did not call Martin's father or a use of force expert though that's their argument. #Zimmermanon9

    OM thanks jury for their attention and is through. Judge asks the jury if they want a break for lunch before Mr. Guy? no, and court is recessed for 10 min. only until Guy starts the rebuttal.

    I missed a bunch. O'Mara continues going over instructions.

    No sympathy:

    How dare me to leave sympathy out of my decisions. Welcome to a criminal courtroom.

    Self Defense:

    - Telling how George does not have to think he was going to die, he has to think he was going to be injured.
    - At he moment of using the force, what was happening?
    - The force being used against George doesn't have to be actual as long as he perceives it to be real.
    - Based upon appearances, George must have actually perceived the danger to be real.

    If you have a reasonable doubt on whether George was justified in the use of deadly force, you have to find him not guilty.

    Showing a graph (he previously showed) saying 'anywhere along this graph, he is not guilty.'

    Talking about how "following someone is not illegal".

    Says he is about to finish, he is over his time.

    Questioning why the State didn't do a bunch of things, didn't call some people that Defense did call.

    Does it help you decide this case when someone that is not George screams at you, yells at you? Do we need that type of anger coming out of a Prosecutor rather than out of the defendant?

    O'Mara brings in a huge chunk of sidewalk cement and puts it on the floor. Talks about it being a weapon.

    Even if we presume that Rachel Jeantel was accurate in what she heard Trayvon say George say "What are you doing around here?" - Saying Dennis Root said that it was not evidence of ill will spite and hatred.

    I really think I have convinced you that George is not guilty beyond a reasonable doubt but the State will get up and talk to you again.
    Now that we are done, the State will not have convinced you beyond a reasonable doubt that George didn't act in self defense.

    Thank you for time, and attention. Difficult task. A couple of jurors we had to wake up on occasion, find him not guilty and let him go back to his life.

    JUDGE:

    Lets take a ten minute recess. Jury go back to your room.

    O'Mara: "Self-defense is a defense against everything."

    Bill S. defense does not know what state will say in rebuttal so this is a common tactic for OM to challenge them to answer his questions to get them off message.

    Guy: That child had every right to do what he was doing that night. He had every right to defend himself from some strange guy following him. GZ could have defended himself without pulling the gun...He shot him because he wanted to.

    John Guy appears very slick and polished and is speaking in very hushed tones to make his point. #Zimmermanon9

    Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 3m
    The state is now saying #Zimmermanon9 should have driven to the back gate to wait for police.

    Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 4m
    The state again is focusing on #Zimmermanon9 's statement rather than evidence of what happened.

    He said 4 minutes was not the time Martin had to run away but the time he had left to live. #Zimmermanon9

    Kathi Belich, WFTV ‏@KBelichWFTV 3m
    The state said the only way #Zimmermanon9 could have gotten to his gun is if Martin backed off if Martin was on top of him.

    Guy: Use your common sense...if GZ was so scared why did he get out of the car...if GZs self defense claim is true, why does he have to lie?

    Kyle Hightower ‏@khightower 2m
    Guy says that common sense says that if #zimmerman was really scared of #TrayvonMartin he wouldn't have left his car.

    Guy: If GZs head had really hit that concrete all the times he said, it would be over. Were his injuries bad? not close...

    Guy: "Let me suggest to you that in the end this case is not about standing your ground, it's about leaving your car."

    Jeff Weiner ‏@JeffWeinerOS 5m
    Guy: It was dark out, #GeorgeZimmerman's gun small & concealed, "#TrayvonMartin couldn't have seen it." #ZimmermanTrial

    Guy: Who is responsible for putting that bullet in TM? He did not kill himself. Who is it that can put his hand on GZs shoulder? Ah, how I would love to do that for TM...

    The defense said this is not TV and that's a good comment because it's not. The state had to give you all the good, the bad and the ugly. Because this defendant is entitled to a fair trial. Who chose the weather, the time, what happened? It was not me or the state, it was the defendant, he chose it all.

    From Guy: With GZs friend who is a security/gun expert (Osterman?), he demonstrated how TM was suppose to be straddling GZ and asked how TM could get the gun out from under him? Response...somehow...but TM couldn't have gotten it out.

    Guy: The living deserve our respect; the dead deserve the truth...

    Juror B29 just appeared to be wiping away a tear.

    Guy: The defense says GZ didn't push the gun into TMs chest...really? the gun went through his shirt and shredded his heart, and was not a contact wound?

    He starts talking about reasonable doubt and OM interrupts and says he is past his time. Judge lets him continue.

    Reasonable doubt...if things were reversed and it was GZ who was walking home in the rain and it was TM who shot him, what would you think. This is not about race, that's how you know. TM was 16 years old and he was a son, a brother and is now dead. The self serving statements and the physical evidence that contradicts it, is the truth.

    Please be seated.

    Mr Guy, you may proceed.

    The Human Heart. It guides us.
    If we really want to know what happened out there, behind those homes that dark rainy night should we not look into the heart of that child and that grown man?

    Was George just casually referencing strangers when he said "those effing a-holes"

    Defense left out a couple of key times on their ten foot long timeline.

    Isn't it every child's worst fear to be followed by a stranger? That was Trayvon's last emotion.

    "What are you following me for?" Trayvon's last words.

    (You can hear a pin drop in the courtroom)

    George was not going back to the car, or the clubhouse, or the mailboxes to meet the Police. (what he told the dispatcher)

    George told lies over and over and over again. Why did he have to lie if he had done nothing wrong?

    If he had done only what he was supposed to do, 'See, and Call' we wouldn't be here. But that was not what was in George's Heart that night.

    Trayvon may not have the defendant's blood on his hands, but George will forever have Trayvon's blood on his hands, forever.

    Trayvon Benjamin Martin is entitled to the truth.

    Showing a graphic of the phone calls / timeline.

    The Defense talked about the 4 minutes.

    Well, what was George doing in those 2 minutes? Watch the 'walk through' again. In those 2 minutes he wasn't going back to his car.

    I don't have any of the (gimmicks) the Defense used. Let me suggest to you that you start at the beginning, at the 7-11. That child had every right to be there. He had every right to be walking home unafraid. Did Trayvon not also have the right to defend himself against a strange man.

    I don't have all the fireworks and the animation but come back to me about that night, with using your common sense.

    Reminding the jury of the dummy and how it was a physical impossibility for George to grab his gun. Urges them to try it themselves in the jury room.

    George didn't shoot Trayvon because he had to, he did it because he wanted to.

    Running off the other street to get an address? Did he have to do that? No, of course not, its self serving.

    Listen to when the screaming stops, it is immediately after the gunshot. If it was George, why would it stop at that instant?

    This is not a complicated case, its a Common Sense case.

    Common sense: If George was the Neighborhood Watch Coordinator, he would know the names of the streets in his neighborhood.

    The watch on Trayvon's wrist did not come off? The earbuds still in his ears when the attack came?

    Why did George lie so much?
    Knoffkey told him to get address. NO,
    About where he said he would meet police. NO

    Said Trayvon had covered, squeezed his nose. (Shows no G blood on fingernail sticks)
    The concrete gave him those non serious injuries? Lindsay Fulgate: No headache, no vomtiing,

    Said Trayvon had seen his gun. How could he have?

    About Spreading Trayvon's arms out. (Trayvon's arms were clutching the bullet wound on his chest)

    Listen to the walkthrough and the NEN tape again, side by side

    Didn't want Police to know he knew about Stand Your Ground. This isn't really about that, its about 'staying in your car'.

    Changed about where he first saw Trayvon. Told Singleton it was here, told the walk-thru it was here (Taffy's house). [I have been wondering about why the discrepency]

    Talking about the guidance George got from the Neighborhood Watch thingie.

    What did George do after the shot was fired? Did he yell call an ambulance? Did he roll Trayvon onto his back so he could breathe? He just stood there.

    Bottom line, who is responsible for Trayvon being dead?

    Trayvon is not, was not and will never be a piece of cardboard.

    When the attorneys asked you if you understand, its not like TV? They were right, its not like that in real life. In real life we give you everything. When the defendant is entitled to a trial, we give you ALL of it.

    When you get back there and you find you don't like things, remember the evidence is what it is, George gave it to us.
    Use your common sense.

    Your verdict is not going to bring Trayvon back to life, it is not going to change anything, but it will define it.

    So, what is that when a grown man gets out of a car and shoots a perfect stranger?

    Describing "Justifiable Use of Force". They put up pictures of all the people who testified.

    I want to remind you to ask yourself, "Who lost the fight?"

    When he shot him, he knew Trayvon could not have gotten his gun.

    "Reasonable Doubt"

    Why didn't Trayvon go home? Use your common sense, did Trayvon really want to lead this guy to the home where another younger person was?
    Remember, George did not want to give out his own home address to the dispatcher in fear that Trayvon would overhear it and know where he (George) lived.

    By the time he got to Sean Hannity, "It was God's plan".

    Reasonable doubt is something you can attach a reason to. Such as 'maybe this happened', that is NOT a reasonable doubt. It needs to be reasonable and it needs to go to an element of the crime.

    OMARA interrupts. JUDGE approach the bench.

    Judge tells Jury that she will give them their instructions after lunch.

    Mr Guy: One more thing before I close. It was brought up the Defense. RACE.
    This case is not about Race it is about Right and Wrong.

    A person who had hate in their mouth, in their actions, in their heart.

    To the dead we owe the truth. What do we owe Trayvon Martin? He was a son, a brother, etc and the last thing he did on this earth was try to get home.

    Judge: Jury do you want Jury Instructions read to you now before lunch, or after lunch?

    Jury: After.

    RECESS until 2 PM EDT.

    Edit Note: I missed some stuff, some of it important, so take what you can and combine it with other notes, tweets, etc.

    Guy: "This case is not about race. It's about right and wrong. It's that simple." Asks jury to reverse the roles.

    Recess until 2pm....

    Bill S. very good job by Guy, saying I don't have all the gizmos but I have the truth and ask you to use your common sense.

    Very effective of Guy to say "should we not look into the heart of this man and the heart of this child. And the defense makes fun of me because I say it. References picture of GZ with words said about punks and ***holes. Is this normal language? Is this what was in his heart?

    Also from Guy: TM may not have blood on his hands but GZ will forever have TMs blood on his hands.

    Bill S. talking about what will happen if GZ is found guilty today? He may have just spent his last free moments with his parents and wife. He will be taken to a holding cell and then transferred to the Seminole Co. Jail.

    To me, GZ looks very anxious.

    Judge now getting ready to read jury instructions and says while she is doing this nobody can come in or out of the courtroom.

    Waiting for jury to come in, now here; judge now reading...

    Judge: first thing is to select a jury foreperson who is responsible an that orderly deliberation is held and that all jurors are allowed an opportunity to speak. The foreperson also signs and dates the verdict form and delivers it back to the courtroom and judge.

    Sidebar with judge to ask the attorneys if they have any objections, according to Bill S....none apparently. She asks about the gun, will send it back but no bullets.

    Sidebar over. Judge says alternates have been separated from 6-man main jury and will soon be discharged.

    Attorneys are in sidebar.
