    Dear Websleuths Members,

    We are going to try opening one thread for the trial of George Zimmerman.

    Discussions became so heated and hateful that we closed the whole Martin/Zimmerman discussion until the trial started.

    If things get out of hand again we will close this thread.

    Just because someone might think George Zimmerman is innocent does not make them a racist.

    Just because someone thinks Trayvon Martin was killed in cold blood does not make them a racist.

    Here are the rules on posting on Websleuths. I would suggest you read them and if you have any questions you can email me at tgrif@xmission.com

    [ame="http://www.websleuths.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=159"]The Rules - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community[/ame]

    Raine1212 and myself will be the moderators of this thread.

    We will open this thread first thing on the morning of Monday June 24th.

    Thank you for being a part of Websleuths.

    IMO the biggest decision that came down so far was not allowing the prosecution experts to testify on the 911 call. Without that I don't see how the jury can conclude who is screaming.

    You can listen to the trial on your smart phone using either iHeart radio or the TuneIn radio apps. WDBO in Orlando is broadcasting the trial.

    The judge is a bit irritated. She wants to start this trial on time and I have also gotten this impression over the last two weeks that she does not like wasting the jury's time. Good for her imo.

    Mark O'Mara had clearly been the face of the defense thus far and prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda for the state.

    Interesting decisions by both sides on who is opening. Curious to see how they breakup trying the case going forward.

    Natalie Tolomeo Natalie Tolomeo &#8207;@NatalieTolomeo 12m
    John Guy (state) AND Don West (defense) will be presenting opening statements. #Zimmerman #GeorgeZimmerman #Trayvon #TrayvonMartin

    But Nelson says she will review sequestration case law at lunch. #zimmerman #TrayvonMartin

    Kyle Hightower Kyle Hightower &#8207;@khightower 13m
    For now judge Nelson asks @attorneycrump and any family members under subpoena to leave courtroom.

    Kyle Hightower Kyle Hightower &#8207;@khightower 16m
    To be clear sequestration rule applies only to witnesses officially on either side's witness lists.

    #GeorgeZimmerman wife and parents left courtroom.

    Judge is deciding whether to make allowances.

    Kyle Hightower Kyle Hightower &#8207;@khightower 24m
    Rule Allows victim family to be in court for duration. Doesn't include #zimmerman parents or Martin family @attorneycrump

    Kyle Hightower Kyle Hightower &#8207;@khightower 26m
    Prosecutor asks judge to invoke sequestration rules. It bars witnesses in the case from being in court until testimony.

    Court is now in session. #zimmerman #TrayvonMartin
