BTW, why is the defense scared to put Zimmerman on the stand? If I were Zimmerman I would want to be on the stand.
It's his right and it's irrelevant. Manslaughter would actually be a charge they could get a conviction on. Instead they went with second degree murder. Also, the bypassed a Grand Jury, which makes zero sense unless you're trying to force something to trial that shouldn't be.
