Zimmerman - and (some of) my issues with his trial... or with his claims

Hey "yawl" (as our beloved Paula Deen likes to say), here are some of my issues with what I'm hearing in the Zimmerman trial... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Today is Monday. July 8, 2013. I'm watching this Zimmerman trial - the one with a guy named George Zimmerman, who's on trial for second degree murder in the shooting death of a young (17 years old) male, Trayvon Martin. Today is the defense's turn (George Zimmerman's side) to put their case, their "evidence" before the jury. So, you got all that? Okay. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ So... the folks on the stand, so far, are long time FRIENDS of George Zimmerman. They each are swearing and testifying they KNOW George's voice. One woman even called him "Georgie". So endearing. Yes, yes, yes. And, she's SO friendly with him that she knows it's his voice screaming for help. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Except... she (or his other friends) DIDN'T know it was "Georgie's" voice when they each were on the phone calling 911 and reporting "someone" is screaming. Not ONE of them called the police and said something like "Oh my God! My FRIEND George Zimmerman is yelling for help! Please send the police!" They each were asked questions by the police to describe who it was who might have been calling for help, and not ONE of them said it was "Georgie". They ALL referred to the screamer as "someone". I got a problem with that... because... a really good friend shouldn't need the George Zimmerman trial to prompt them to realize - with absolute positivity - that, oh, wow, that's their friend screaming for dear life. If they know their friend's voice with absolute positivity, then I'm thinking that, in their 911 call(s), their asses should have been reporting to the police that GEORGE ZIMMERMAN was being attacked and calling for help! Just sayin'... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
