15. Most of that language expresses opinions. None of it is racist or sexist

or discriminatory. Those are words of assessment. The jury can judge whether to agree with them or reject them. This will be interesting. The only one that might suggest a fact is “He got out of the car after the police (or dispatcher) told him not to.” The one about "confronting" Trayvon Martin could get the prosecutor in trouble should the defense be able to show that somehow Zimmerman did not confront Martin. So the prosecutor might prefer not to use some of that language.
