Some TV commentators at George Zimmerman’s trial have found the prosecution’s case lacking. This case started the minute Zimmerman called 911 and spoke to the dispatcher. When he ignored the dispatcher’s advice not to follow Trayvon Martin, he was guilty of precipitating the murder.
That should have been the foundation of the prosecutor’s case. At first, when this did not happen, I believed that the law, itself, prevented the approach. But it is becoming apparent that the law did not. The prosecutor was either inexperienced, negligent or totally incompetent, by not making more of George Zimmerman’s conduct prior to the murder itself.
