"I had a dream ... that today, a witness would be judged not on the color of her personality, but on the content of her testimony," says de la Rionda. He also says Jeantel's testimony matches up with the evidence.

De la Rionda says jurors will be able to look at the prosecution's timeline in the case.
He then addresses Martin's friend, Rachel Jeantel, who was on the phone with him before he was shot.
"This young lady is not a very sophisticated person ... but she's a human being. ... Maybe her speech, language was a little colorful. But did she speak the truth? Because when you think of it, she was the person that was speaking to the victim and really the conversation that she had with the victim, nobody would know whether she's telling the truth but her," de la Rionda says.

"Do you believe he just assumed something but he kind of overreacted a little bit but it really wasn't his fault Trayvon Martin is dead?" asks de la Rionda. "Who started this? Who followed who? Who was minding their own business? Who was the one who was armed and knew they were armed?"

De la Rionda tells jurors how he thinks they should reach a verdict: Rely on the witness/testimony/evidence, rely on the law the judge reads to them and "you rely on your God-given common sense." He tells them a just verdict is a guilty verdict.

The prosecutor says it was good that Zimmerman wanted to be a police officer, but you can't take the law into your own hands -- that's why we have courtrooms.

De la Rionda says Zimmerman didn't do several things: Ask Martin if he needed help, roll down his window and identify himself as neighborhood watch, wait for police, wait inside his car.
"Use your God-given common sense," de la Rionda says.

On a presentation display, de la Rionda shows all of the assumptions he says Zimmerman made: That Martin didn't belong in the neighborhood, that he was a criminal and that he was one of those (expletive) who always get away.

De la Rionda says Zimmerman has studied the law and what's required for self-defense.

"He (Zimmerman) doesn't know the main street you go in? Because see, when he admits something like that, it proves one thing, that he was following him (Martin). That he had profiled him and he was following him. And that shows his guilt. It shows his actions, unfortunately, led to the death of Trayvon Martin," de la Rionda says.
"He, the defendant, silenced Trayvon Martin. But even in silence, his body provides evidence as to this defendant's guilt. ... His body speaks to you and even in death it proves to you that this defendant is lying about what happened," says de la Rionda, who points out that no blood was found on Martin's hands.

De la Rionda asks why Zimmerman "exaggerated everything that happened." Zimmerman kept denying that he followed Martin, according to de la Rionda, because he knew it would show ill will.

"Do you have an innocent man before you? Is it really self-defense when you follow somebody? First of all, when you profile somebody incorrectly?" asks de la Rionda.
