George Zimmerman's attorney, Mark O'Mara, put on a fascinating show for the in-person and online audiences watching Zimmerman's bond hearing in Florida on Friday.
O'Mara took on the prosecution through his questions of its witnesses, including one of three officers who questioned Zimmerman after the Trayvon Martin shooting. And he proved to the court that the physical evidence in the case, as well as the circumstantial evidence, more readily supports that Zimmerman was the victim of a beating by Martin than vice versa.
It was hard to watch the officer attempt to answer O'Mara's questions, yet time-after-time be unable to properly do so due to not either having knowledge of the facts of the case (like the reports detailing Zimmerman's wounds from that night), or because he wasn't sure which of the three officers wrote down (or witnessed) certain aspects of the events that night.
There was also the embarrassing segment when the officer being questioned showed a certain amount of bias in his report writings, using the word "confront" when there was absolutely no evidence to support Zimmerman confronted Martin at all, according to the Fox News televised video of the legal proceedings.
The judge had no choice but to award bond in the matter, as the prosecution definitely didn't put up any significant defense against it.
And how could he? It's obvious that the defendant isn't a flight risk, and he posed no threat of violence to anyone in his community prior to the night a stranger wandered onto their premises.
And furthermore, the facts seem to bear out that George Zimmerman may be in on trial more due to being a white-Hispanic male who shot a black male in a racially charged political year than anything else.
