    Regardless of what you might think, Zimmerman will be only be found guilty of a much lesser charge because of "star witnesses" just like Rachel "I keep changing my story" Jenteal – to say she came off looking like a moron is insulting the real morons of the world. And the only reason he'll be found guilty of any charge is to keep the community from revolting. Did he kill Martin? Yes, that's clear but was it pre-meditated or planned in any way? Doubtful and can't be proved one way or the other. So let the prosecution continue to put star witnesses the quality of Rachel in the witness box and they will only sabotage their own case. How stupid can the prosecution team be? And I had to chuckle when the defense team asked her if anyone spoke to her about her disposition from the previous day and her response was "I went to bed" – what BS – it's highly unlikely that she was NOT counseled on how to speak and respond which means she perjured herself in a courtroom – more likely the judge will look the other way since Rachel is simply too stupid to know any better. Time to move onto the next big crisis and wrap this fiasco up

    what are you talking about devon...CNN has tried their hardest to paint Treyvon as a nice young man instead of the weed smoking, gun toting, bragging about beating a bus driver up, suspended from school thug in training. They constantly show the picture of him when he was 12 in his football uniform or other various pictures from years ago instead of showing him being 6'3" tall 17 year old

    IF you have never been exposed to the "n*****" culture which is not the black culture, then you just have been if you have watched Jeantel's testimony...now we just gotta get a real "cracker" on the stand so you can have that experience too...

    People are human, they grow and learn and mature. The Paula Dean issue is out of control. Just drop it. If you don't want to support her, don't buy her books, magazines or products. If you are human, and fallible as she is, then drop it and get on with your life. I could say names I've heard groups called even in the last 2 years, by people of their own origins. Listen to any comedian whether, hispanic, white, oriental, or black and you will hear them say disparaging names on stage and get the whole audience laughing. Listed to modern music and you will hear some of these same names. Forgive her, she admitted what she did, she apologized. Let it go.

    If anyone thinks for a minute that Jenteal was a "Star Witness" they are out of their damn minds. What a gift for the defense. Between her demeanor on the stand (absolutley shameful) when answering the defense teams questions and her level of credibility (which is around 0.0 on a scale of 1 to 10)...if I was on this jury and the prosecution was relying on her for a successful conviction sans any other major evidence...acquitted. The State of Florida should be ashamed.

    If that box of rocks was the star witness, Zimmerman is a free man for sure.
