What has the prosecution missed? Crowd-source-project…
Hey gang, let’s make a list of all the evidence and/or argument that we know is available to the State in the Zimmerman case, or that we can reasonably conclude they should have been able to dig up, but that they have not presented in the trial. I’d like this to be fairly specific as to purpose. So rather than just saying “security videos”, an entry would say, “Use security videos to establish that GZ never parked in front of the clubhouse,” and a separate entry would say “Use security videos synced to police calls to establish that GZ was past the mailboxes on TTL when he called NEN.” And so on. I’ll start with few more entries off the top of my head:
• The State has not introduced the voice exemplars of GZ yelling Help Me, Help Me, nor TM’s voice samples from his cell phone.
• The State has not made anything of the direction of the blood trails on the back of GZ’s head.
• The redirect of Dr. Rao was incredibly weak. After West got her to admit that the “punctate abrasions” on various areas of GZ’s head COULD be the result of a series of “impacts” on concrete, the State elicited no counter-possibilities. Could the abrasion have been made by dirt/gravel/grass nubs on the ground rather than concrete? Could they have been made by GZ’s head rolling over the surface from side to side rather than by a series of stacatto impacts? Given the presence of these punctate abrasions as the only wounds other than the two small lacerations on the back of the scalp, what kind of force would have been necessary to create them. Would a minimal amount of protective covering of the head have prevented these punctate wounds and scalp lacerations? Say, if someone had suffered the exact same experiences with/to their head, but been wearing a hoodie with the hood up at the time, would that have prevented those “inconsequential” injuries entirely? In short could Trayvon also have had his head bumped around to the same degree as the two men were “wrestling”, but shown no effects because his head was covered at the time?
OK, there’s just a few starters. Have at it. I hope we can wind up with a comprehensive list all in one place.
