Zimmerman Trial Day 8: Live Video, Analysis of State's Case & Witnesses

042012lunchzimmerman_512x288.jpg

Hey folks, Today we will again be covering the Zimmerman Trial live, all day, with streaming video. Continuing commentary will be posted in the Twitter feed of selected contributors below the first video feed, and breaking news will be added at the bottom of this post.

During the lunch recess, or immediately thereafter, we will post a mid-day update. We'll then follow up with the usual detailed end-of-day wrap up, including video and embedded Tweets, at the usual time in the evening.

Today court is expected to start at 8:30AM with a hearing, before the jury is brought into the courtroom, on whether to admit into evidence the State's proffer of Zimmerman's college records, his application to a Virginia police academy (he used to live in VA), and his application to do a "ride-along" with police officers (an opportunity offered by many departments).  As soon as that hearing is over the trial proper is expected to begin.

You can watch it all her LIVE:

You see our analysis and video of yesterday's courtroom testimony, including Chris Serino's equivocation, Mark Osterman's very favorable testimony, Zimmerman's appearance on Sean Hannity, the odd medical testimony of imported medical examiner Dr. Rao, and the brief and uninformative testimony of fingerprint expert Kristine Benson, here:
