This time they're right. It was a pitiful performance.

At least the jury won't take all the blame.
The prosecution was stuck with the choice of not presenting Zimmerman's statements and being left with not being able to present the contradictions in closing if Zimmerman didn't take the stand, and presenting them, guaranteeing he wouldn't take the stand.  They probably will take at least a day for closing arguments and rely on slick power points to show the contradictions and make the claim they are incompatible with Zimmerman being not guilty.

One of the WFTV talking heads referred to the beverage as 'watermelon iced tea'.

They are allowed alternative defenses.

Allowed yes. But certainly you'd have to admit--hard to argue when there's all that video of your client already in evidence saying something else.

Or are you just being pigheaded for fun today?

Nelson confirms that the state plans on resting today.

West wants to take Friday off for Crump's depo. Nelson doesn't like that idea.

West tried to get Friday as a recess.  Nelson says no.  West named a few witnesses that needed to be deposed, not just Crump.  Nelson says defense has had a month to depose Crump.  West describes what happened, in court, each day since Crump was told he was deposable on 6/3.

Nelson says the schedule has the state resting today, and defense begins on Friday.

She says there has never been a request to recess early to allow deposition.  Now she has a jury sequestered, they are off on Thursday.  She says "End of discussion," West goes on explaining that the defense has persistently asked for more time.  Nelson says this can be discussed with her again after the state rests.  Bernardo says the state might need until Friday morning.  Nelson says they will work as long as it takes, today, for the state to rest.

So why doesn't the defense want to interview Crump, Sunday at 6PM?

Bernie says they may have to finish on Friday morning. Nelson gets testy with him too. She wants to finish the state's case today, she said something about staying as late as it takes.

She's trying to curry favor with the jury.

I missed it. Is Crump dodging West and MOM?

By all accounts the prosecution has taken far less time than planned for. So why not use the unexpected extra time to ensure due process?

This is unbelievable bias and hostility.
