    Will all the important information about the Juvenal be brought out in this trial so that the jury can make a just and fair verdict and if not can the defense find people to testify to the Juvenal's past track record?

    What I want to know is how do the two individuals compare in stature? Zimmerman appears to be not that big. Trayvon is always portrayed as a teenager which implies not fully grown. Opinions might change if it turns out that Trayvon was physically larger than Zimmerman.

    What important information are you suggesting should be brought out?

    "can the defense find people to testify to the Juvenal's past track record?"

    Evidence submitted in the trial should be limited to the circumstances of the event, but that never stops a lawyer trying to poison the minds of the jury by submitting anything the judge will let him get away with.

    Saying that, sometimes it should be noted if a person has a habit of behavior that might prove important in protecting the public from that in the future.

    The fairness of a trial depends a lot on the technican sitting on the bench.

    Right now the press is further trying to play on Zimmerman's character by bringing to light some past problems, including domestic violence and assault on a police officer.

    I read on one of the news sites that Treyvon was now at 17 170 pounds. Not sure on the height. Mike.

    Forensics will have a lot to do with outcome of the verdict. Where there any powder burn marks on the clothing? Angle of the bullet entry path will determine if the "victim" was standing away from or on top of Zimmerman. So much has yet to be disclosed.

    My 18yr old is not only bigger than I am now but I believe a tad stronger. The age and weight arguement has no bearing as I out weigh my 18yr old too and he could probably hold me down.

    P.S. Don't tell him I said this. :)

    >When this story broke the news media stated that he was expelled from school and had a record, also belong to a gang, now his stuff disappears and now bring up crap on the shooter. whats good for the goose should also apply to Juvenal, especially if it carries weight as to why hes in a closed community?

    Mike Battista has it right. I haven't heard any of the important evidence yet.
