SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — The lead detective in George Zimmerman's second-degree murder case testified Monday that Trayvon Martin's father told him that screams for help on a 911 call weren't his son's.Officer Chris Serino was called by the defense to...
I guess the mother had wishful thinking....of course the mother would say it was her son because she wants to see Zimmerman charged for murder even though it was self defense.
All evidence indicates it was self defense and the Defense hasn't even presented their case yet...the evidence presented up til now shows Zimmerman shot Trayvon in self defense, the grass stains on Zimmerman's back prove he was on the bottom while the grass stains on Trayvon's pants prove he was the one on top beating Zimmerman and pounding his head into the sidewalk. Eyewitness testimony also proves this. The state has not proven without a reasonable doubt that Trayvon was innocent and attacked and there is no law that says a licensed gun owner can't follow someone acting suspiciously in their neighborhood. Therefore, Zimmerman broke no laws. It was an unfortunate situation and tragedy but if Trayvon didn't attack Zimmerman for following him he might still be alive today. Here is a good analysis from ABC on why Zimmerman will likely be found innocent: http://abcnews.go.com/US/george-zimmerman-convicted-murder-manslaughter/storynew?id=19598422#.Udno3NKThyI
I'd say it's not wise to jump to conclusions though before the trial is even over, however we are innocent until PROVEN guilty...and without a reasonable doubt!
