When the other person is trying to avoid you .. it becomes chasing.First of all, following does not equal chasing. Secondly, what evidence is there to suggest that Zimmerman got out of his car to chase Martin? I already explained to you the importance of situation escalation so what Zimmerman was "looking for" is irrelevant and not only because you are placing thoughts and words into a context that doesnt exist.
Here is the earlier 911 call and where he already got out of the car to keep chasing him once. Then the time he got out of the car later he supposedly got out to check an address. You know, in the neighborhood he has patrolled for years, he does not know what street he is on
You going to answer that question about intent? Add to it, what do you think is the intent of the guy who has been trying to avoid someone who was chasing him?
And, as for his credibility, I guess that you forgot how he and the wife sat in court and told a judge that they had no money while they were hiding the $100K+ they received in donations.
Again, you think this guy who you KNOW lied to a judge would not lie to save his ass.
What a joke.
He is going to get off.
Might as well accept it at this point.
There are a lot of arguments, speculations and theories being argued.
None are PROOF of guilt and none overcome the detective saying he believed Zimmerman.
The prosecution basically has to prove the detective's opinion was wrong at the time of the event and that it's STLL wrong.
If I was a juror I'd give 100% weight to a veteran detective's statements unless there was DIRECT proof showing they are wrong or they have a history of being a liar. I'd give about 10% to anyone recounting the events a year later. Zimmerman's storyline would be completely worthless until the detective said he believed it.
Even a black attorney who was sure Zimmerman was guilty admitted on CNN that the prosecution now has to come up with more evidence nobody knows about and witnesses nobody knows about. At this point, Zimmerman hasn't been proven to be guilty in the trial.
Did anyone answer why Zimmerman had to "get out of his car to call 911"??
That makes no plausible sense, given the subsequent results.
Does the FACT that Z lied to a judge not change your opinion about the reliability of his testimony?
About the reliability of his testimony? No. The money was being raised to help with his defense. In a bail hearing you are asked about your assets and cash on hand. I doubt that I would have considered that as either of those myself. I think, after listening to the talking heads, that it was an honest mistake on his part.
