TypeO Posted May 20, 2012 Share Posted May 20, 2012 It seems that if someone is at the extended arm movement of bashing another one's head into the ground, that would basically be at the arms length full extension, right? Does a man have arms that when extended are less than twelve inches in length from bloody knuckles to the back of another mans bloody head. I tried to model it in 3D software and I came up with NO. Not really sure what point you're trying to make. Zimmerman's arm would almost certainly be bent, reaching for a concealed weapon. Probably a shoulder holster, where your right arm would be bent at the elbow and your hand resting near your left ribcage. Pull it from the holster and fire. Arm doesn't need to be fully extended to pull the trigger. I don't see how 3D modeling would be necessary to envision this. Ohhhh - maybe you were employing hyperbole to demonstrate your disdain for my comment. All this information is simply superfluous because in the end Mr. Zimmerman cannot escape the simple fact this is a textbook case of manslaughter. According to current Florida law,"the killing of a human being by the act, procurement, or culpable negligence of another, without lawful justification...," Also, "There has been quite a bit of discussion of how to differentiate manslaughter from first and second degree murder, but what it comes down to is this: <legal stuff unrelated to my reply> Not superfluous at all. You're ignoring the human element. When has a legal case - especially a high-profile case - ever run so smoothly as to simply look at the facts and render a just verdict? If that was the standard, OJ, Casey Anthony and all the rest would have been convicted. All the things you cite as superfluous will be huge factors each side will put into play in order to influence the jurors. And let's not even begin on jurors. The minute they are chosen for the jury, they'll be looking up agents and lawyers to handle their future book deals for being on the latest "case of the century". Your comment holds true only in a figurative vacuum, removed and partitioned from the realities of our legal system. And I'm not saying that's a good thing. I often wish things were that simple.
