I’m not quite sure how John Guy’s opening statement could have gone any better. At the same time, Don West of George Zimmerman’s defense team (no video to come) completely shit the bed with a confusing/boring/sloppy opening statement that — for some reason — included Zimmerman’s call to police:
I absolutely don’t get it. Especially since the wind interference from Zimmerman running after Trayvon Martin and subsequent tapping of metal (flashlight/gun?) ends 15+ seconds AFTER he was told to stop chasing the unarmed teen.
I’m logging off now (11:30 am EDT) to catch a flight — please feel free to leave a comment if Zimmerman’s defense finally makes a valid argument.
