    Yesterday, I decided to watch MSNBC, to see what they were saying about the trial. I had only previously watched the HLN evening shows.

    I happened to catch part of Sharptons show. He had on 4 guests, one of them being Marcia Clark. All 4 guests thought GZ was guilty and would be convicted. I wondered what trial they were watching (IMO). I can totally see how people not following the trial could think one way or the other, depending on what news sources you follow.

    I am going with hung jury, because this case is a mess. IMO

    The whole altercation took all of a couple of minutes. It means within SECONDS of getting into a fight, GZ shot to kill TM. How IMMINENT was death when you first begin grappling with an UNARMED person??:twocents::twocents::twocents:

    It did come out. They did have signs posted. A picture was shown of the sign that was in close proximity to where the killing took place. I believe GZ would have walked passed it as he was searching for an address like he stated.

    We saw this in the Scott Peterson case, I believe. If they begin deliberating and one has to stop, they have to begin deliberations all over again. I think we'll have a verdict by the end of the business day so it seems unlikely any will have to discontinue deliberating. IMHO

    Very interesting question, though, Justice.

    While the jury deliberates we will leave the threads up for the day if we have the mod power to monitor the thread

    Basically it all depends. If the jury deliberates all weekend we don't have the mod power to leave the thread open that long. However we will do our best to leave a thread open when we can so you can discuss while you wait.

    After the verdict is read we will leave the thread open for discussion for a limited time.

    Sorry I can't be more specific. It depends on how long the jury is out and how many mods we have on the forum. And how the posters are behaving.

    If most are being jerks then we won't waste our time and close the thread and move on.

    Normally we do not do this. . How we are handling this case is really unusual.

    No other case on the forum brings out the problems like this case. We literally have to have a mod sitting on the thread the whole time it is open to prevent the forum from exploding.

    All of our other cases do not require this type of babysitting.

    So in answer to your questions everything depends on the jury, how long they are out, if they are a hung jury, and how posters are behaving. The outcome of these questions will determine what we will do from this point forward.

    At the movies but listening to jury instructions.

    Sounds good and fair to me

    Some folks are more auditory, therefore, IMO, I think it's important for her to read slowly so that every juror can hear & understand exactly what she's saying.

    Jury instructions are extremely important, and deserve to be comprehended in every way, so that justice may be served.

    I've followed many trials, and have never heard any judge read through the jury instructions in the rapid, stumbling manner in which this judge is reading.

    MOO

    Trayvon is a victim, pure and simple. He is not here to defend himself, or tell his side of the story. George Zimmerman is a proven liar (IMO). I pray that the jury receives the wisdom to make the right decision in this case. Justice for Trayvon is long overdue.

    Well if that's the case they probably shouldn't follow them with a gun either.

    I just think having everyone report to NW who is visiting their home is not realistic.

    I think once deliberations begin, that's it. An alternate cannot step into ongoing deliberations. Once the jury is charged the alternates get to go home. Any jury problems after that result in a mistrial.

    I have not watched any TV about this case, just watched the streaming trial and I think he is guilty. Which is obviously completely at odds with most others on this thread, who have also been watching the trial.

    I don't think it has anything to do with whether you are watching TV or the trial. I think it has a lot more with ones upbringing, background, living circumstances, experiences.

    Just my opinion.

    He can be free. God will protect him. If these hysterical mobs want to murder him then they need to be locked up.

    In my opinion.

    You have shot this gun with someone moving your arms and elbows that others have cited "kicks like a mule" and "not for women" while on your back with your head level to the ground over a metal and cement water cover? Interesting.

    Oh thanks. I guess it's different in FL, that seems dangerous! If just one drops out for any reason they have to start everything over?

    Remember strawberry shortcake, or whatever her name was that was put into the Peterson jury after that one guy who had served as foreman was removed?

    IMHO
