"You will see the evidence proves at least one thing. Trayvon Martin hadn't gone home," said West. "He had plenty of time, but choosing not to do that he either left or just hid in the darkness to see about this guy who was following him and turned out of the darkness and said why are you following me."I believe that this statement by the defense team establishes that Trayvon was the person who was in fear.
just hid in the darkness to see about this guy who was following himWhat kind of person "hid[es] in the darkness"? A person who feels threatened. Why wouldn't Trayvon go home? Would YOU go to your home when you are being followed? You would let a stranger who is following you know where you live? You would lead them to your house? Of course not. So with this statement by the defense, it admits that Trayvon reasonably thought that he was in danger and did what he thought was in his best interest. If the jury is paying attention and the defense continues along this line they will have helped convict their own client.
