The prosecution was down right terrible in that case. That along with the weird laws in Florida is why Zimmerman walked.
Zimmerman proved in those tapes he chased him at one point at least.
His account did conflict with the evidence
He said trayvon grabbed his gun, none if trayvons prints were on the gun or holster.
He said said trayvon punched him 25 times while he bled. No trace of trayvon hand or fist.
Him screaming so clearly doesn't account for blood in his mouth and trayvon covering his mouth.( again no blood on his hand)
The position he claimed he was in it would be damn near impossible for trayvon to see the gun let alone reach for it
All of this was presented by the prosecuters they should have gotten a manslaughter conviction.
Cochran could have been the prosecutor and those ladies still would have let that man go.
