George Zimmerman murder trial Day 8 wrap up

The prosecution in George Zimmerman trial say they're almost done in presenting their case. Prosecutors have tried to paint the neighborhood watchman that shot and killed Florida teen Trayvon Martin as a wannabe cop.

Witnesses said he had an intense interest in becoming a police officer - even applying to do a police-ride-along in 2010.

The jury also learned about the classes he took and excelled in that discussed self-defense laws.

A DNA expert also testified Martin's DNA was not on Zimmerman's gun and could damage Zimmerman's claim the two fought over a weapon.

Which side won today?

    If the experts testify truthfully about pot they will say that, if anything, it will make a person LESS likely to be aggressive.
