Zimmerman Trial - Frederick Leatherman post on defense closing arguments. [View all]

Does anyone know which photo he's speaking about
and does anyone recall seeing this part of the
defense closing?

(Comment in the comment section from Leatherman)

Mark OíMaraís closing was quite possibly
the worst argument that I have ever witnessed.
At times he seemed almost incoherent.

The worst part of it occurred when he showed Trayvonís
death photo to the jury and tipped it so that Sybrina
Fulton could see it.

She left the courtroom.

Deliberate or accidental?

I donít believe he had to show the photo to support
or illustrate his argument, so I have decided that
he did it deliberately with malice aforethought.

His defining characteristic throughout this case has
been to use motions as a vehicle to disclose private
information about Trayvon Martin and to falsely
accuse Bernie de la Rionda of discovery violations
to conceal his failure to exercise due diligence in
performing his job.

I shudder with disgust when I hear his name or the
sound of his voice.

John Guyís rebuttal was sublime. He blew me away
and that is not easy to do.
