2. He just made a mistake

He should have put his hand at the back hip, not the side. The gun was behind his back.

3. He's doing a good job: Zimmerman put a bullet through a teenager's heart. Who lost the fight?

4. Much more effective than De la Rionda (sp?) in my opinion.

Smoother, more even flow of argument, much clearer presentation.

Almost seems like De la Rionda was acting as a ringer in the DA's strategy.

5. The camera shots of the two defense attorneys as they were listening to John Guy showed

they were not happy. I think they know he was effective. And when Guy said he would "love to be able to put my hand on Trayvon's shoulder" (as the defense attorneys did with Zimmerman) he must have hit a soft spot in the all female juries hearts...it was a nice moment, he had real emotion in his voice...

6. When Guy said that re putting his hand on Trayvon's shoulder...

it was incredibly powerful, imo. It did two things, completely neutralized that action by the defense and brought the jury back to the victim and what this case is really all about. It was brilliant.

7. I don't think the defense lawyers were prepared for this much emotion from a prosecutor.

I wonder if they realized how deep a mark it made with the female jurors...

8. Given Guy's excellent opening statement which was both powerful and emotional...

I am puzzled at the lack of emotion the defense displayed during their closing, it was either delivered in a flat tone or, too often, imo, a contemptuous tone. They must have known how good Guy would be after hearing his opening statement yet it was like they felt they had the final word. It is puzzling to me because, like you, I think Guy's closing did make a deep mark on the jurors, most of whom have children, some close to Trayvon's age.
