62. Yes. I'm wondering whether the police could subpoena more information

on the cell phone conversation between Trayvon and the girl with whom he was talking at the time he was being followed by Zimmerman.

I wonder whether there is some recording of that call? Does the phone company automatically record calls?

And where is Trayvon's phone? Where is his earpiece or headset?

In the past, self-defense was a defense not a home free card. It used to be the burden of the defendant to prove that defense including that the threat was truly imminent.

So, legally, you are right, an investigation and a trial are needed. But the facts here look pretty bad for Zimmerman in my view. He could have a legitimate defense -- if Florida law requires one.

The new Florida law is an absolute disaster. That law could make it unsafe to walk anywhere at any time.
