    Why is CNN bringing someone weak to represent Martin, often soft voiced female and talked over by a loud mouthed white male. The lady had a point but the male voice talked over and drowned her point out.

    It is true, at that night he went home and any injuries from his family doctor after consulting with his father, a former judge and creative brother as seen on his interview on Piers Morgan... those injuries are open to big questions...., opportunity to fabricate that evidence was given.

    The standing evidence is that he refused medical care that night, and the second ambulance was called off. So a list of injuries show up in a report after he goes to his family doctor, after the incident. COME ON!!! WHO ARE YOU KIDDING.

    I think the reason CNN is doing this is that they know that there are many white viewers who support Zimmerman despite the overwhelming evidence....they have already lost many to Faux News, so they have to appear even when there is nothing to be impartial about.

    First, the testimony does not change anything, another witness already said that two people were "WRESTLING"

    Unless Martin is not allowed to be on top even once during that wrestling?

    SO HOW THE HELL DOES IT ADD TO ZIMMERMAN CREDIBILITY...IT WAS ALREADY KNOWN THEY WERE WRESTLING..and another witness saw Zimmerman on top of Trayvon as well ...back and forth....THAT IS WHAT NORMALLY HAPPENS WHEN PEOPLE FREAKING WRESTLE!!!!

    But the loser who got his head scratched and had a kid in panic flinging his arms and connected with his noise frustratingly shoots him in the chest....is someone unable to control his temper....consistent with his previous attack on a police officer, multiple domestic violence, misdemeanor, criminal felony....

    SECONDLY YOU HAD A WHITE MALE WITNESS WHO CHANGED HIS STORY. This is America, many white people have already collected 100s of thousands for Zimmerman and many have bought target posters for shooting practice depicting Martin. So under such environment is it hard to find a white male who will embellish the story to tilt it towards Zimmerman. Especially one that was living in the gated community and aware of Zimmerman's efforts.

    THIS IS PRESENTED AS "NEW EVIDENCE" REALLY!!

    I really don't understand why Zimmerman doesn't get a little more credit, you can now know that he was telling the truth this whole time. He (besides carrying a gun), did his job as a citizen patrol, it was a gated community and he had every right to go up to the kid and question him because that was his job. If i was getting punched in the nose and getting my head slammed on the concrete i would fear for live. If Zimmerman didn't question him and he went on to hurt or murder a person or two down the road for whatever reason, Zimmerman would be under even more scrutiny.

      Zimmerman gets no credit for anything, other than he stalked a kid that was walking home from the store. Sion, you are as much a part of the problem as Zimmerman. The police told him to get back into his car. If he had done that, he wouldn't have a SCRAPE on his head and nose. His injuries were minor and didn't require shooting and killing a kid.You are way off base with your comment.
