Trayvon Martin Trial Live Stream: George Zimmerman to Make Closing Argument

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The George Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin trial continues today in Sanford, Fla., where the former's lawyers will get one last chance to make their case.

Zimmerman's legal team has tried for weeks to convince a jury that the ex-neighborhood watch volunteer killed Martin, an unarmed teen, in self defense.

Watch closing arguments in the Zimmerman trial via live stream below:

Mark O'Mara, one of Zimmerman's lawyers, is expected to argue in a closing statement that his client is a conscientious citizen who fought for his life.

Prosecutors gave part of their own closing arguments Thursday and will also likely get to present a final statement Friday after O'Mara wraps up his.

"Self-defense is self-defense," O'Mara has said.

"What happened out there was not a crime."

Following closing statements, the jury will decide if Zimmerman, 29, should be acquitted or convicted of second-degree murder or manslaughter.

Yesterday, the judge ruled that the jury may consider manslaughter in addition to murder, a victory for prosecutors, whose case has proven difficult.

The murder charge, if he is convicted of it, carries a potential life prison term, while the maximum penalty in Florida for manslaughter is 30 years.

The Trayvon Martin trial has captivated the nation for the past few weeks and with its outcome still uncertain, deliberations should be closely watched.

here is something more shocking http://theconservativetreehous... dont deny it. hoodlum. a gangster wanna be. smoking weed. trouble maker. suspended from school. dirty talker. the list goes on. but to all who see past that, an innocent young BLACK gentleman. the color never mattered. in fact it became an issue because the DEFENSE HAD NO ARGUMENT. No one is saying the boy deserved it but Zimmerman and Treyvon both could have acted in a different manner to avoid this, but, when someone who is taller (maybe not bigger) and is able to get on top of you and pound your face causing lacerations, 2 black eyes and smashing your head against asphalt...well yes, self-defense, we all would have done it regardless of the color. dont say no until youre in the life/death situation yourself. on top of this all, every day Asians, Blacks, Hispanics and Whites kill each other. no race or color is innocent but for all the racist out there, go live in another country this is not the 1960s or earlier. 2013 where white people and blacks voted in a black president. get over the race issue, its useless. we live in a world where we need to be professional, hoodies are very unprofessional although i understand the image they were going for. but read the real facts, the police reports, evidence, records, youll see the truth, the trial was correctly received, disputed and resolved. rip treyvon may no one ever have to do this again.

I think that somewhere inside me there is a possibility I could be swayed? Here is the problem: god knows how many blacks were shot in the past few weeks and many died at the hands of Blacks (Chicago) but where are the signs, the buses, the protests in Chicago! OJ kills 2 whites and when acquitted crowds cheered! Did that many people actually know the "Juice" personally I wonder! The fact that the only time I see a pause in all this violence is when people hesitate so they can join in and scream Zimmerman is guilty! I can't buy that! Zimmerman calls himself Hispanic today because he knows his ass will surely go to jail if listed as white. The state wanted to call this Racial Hatred and that well came up dry! Then during the 1st part of the trial they said Zimmerman was on top and that changed! How can I possibly back this jockeying for position strategy as the weeks change. Throw something against the wall and see what sticks!

Let me get this straight! If look outside my window and someone is standing in my yard. He gets pissed because I ask him why the both of us are in my yard, he punches me in my yard then I shoot him as my head is being pounded onto my driveway- I then go to jail for manslaughter? WOW!

@ Your kidding?

I think you could be stretching it but try this on for size. A guy is kicking the shit out of your front door. You are packing your "hog leg" then you walk outside and around the shrubs this SOB knocks the piss out of you then you fall to the ground and as your laying there you put a hole in him! Then you go to jail! Yeah- that's where it's headed!

Check the stats logic. White women are being rapped by other whites. Wonder who would rather you believe otherwise? Makes it easy to demonize.

If George Zimmerman did not have his gun with him, would he have acted the same way he did, provoking, stalking, bullying a human being, whose only guilt was the fact he was a black boy? Zimmerman is a coward and a liar, he was afraid of a boy? He was afraid because he is a wanna be relying on a gun, he is a coward. He lied about the crime he committed, about the money he received from his pathetic racist fans, and he thinks he can get away with murder.
For those who support him today because he killed a black young boy, like he was hunting in the woods, the CIVIL WAR IS OVER!

@ Raquel Hughes

So that means cops, soldiers in Afghanistan are all cowards along with store owners? Zimmerman had a gun then why would he throw the 1st punch? If Zimmerman planned on killing the kid then why on earth would he call 911? Was it because he wanted the Cops to see him kill the kid? That dog don't hunt! It must take a lot of energy to keep your back turned on the WAR on the streets of Chicago where youth gets murdered weekly. they can find him guilty and the violence of black on black will not change. Or is this all about the fact that it was another race who shot him? Use your energy to really make a difference. Quit hand picking tragedies and pretending it's all for "THE CAUSE". Calling someone a CREEPY CRACKER only minutes before shows ME-the Civil War in some people's mind is not near over- is it? You can sit on your heels and squawk till the sun goes down. This is about a lot of things and most of all THIS has Race Card all over it. When a society doesn't speak up against the Abomination of all these violent crimes against all others then why in Gods name would anyone give the benifit of the doubt in this case.

Caseclosed Your Creepy! This is a adult that stalked and killed a child. I'm sure you know how one sided you sound. No one thinks killing is ok. Streets or otherwise. Just because there is killings in the inner city does not condone racist actions. You have made it clear that there is a civil war still going on. Between the ignorant and the just. Holy war between good and evil... GODs Love and Truth is not segregated. So I suggest you give others, that are not you, the respect they deserve. @caseclosed It's time to grow. Or at least grow-up! Peace!

Wrong again........PEACE. Read the facts and review the case. We may both be biased on our opinions but im telling you, review the facts, the boy was no more innocent than zimmerman. yet zimmerman acted in self defense, that was the true question here. race, color, none of that matters, that came as a side issue to rally support for a defenseless prosecution.

This is all about social justice. It is being tried to please the administration along with the masses. this case has nothing to do with real justice. the police department couldn't even find enough evidence of wrong doing to even make a case and the last 3 weeks proves that. this was a apartment complex riddled with break ins. how long does one go before they ask someone why they are in the propert if the person doesn't look familiar. this case is full of holes. they have turned over every stone looking for something on Zimmerman and nothing sticks but a few inconsistencies. Who cares where the gun was. it could be in the mouth of a bulldog 3 feet away. It doesn't matter. the guy was on top. zimmerman was in fear. It's done.
