    in this motion and the decision was not a big surprise to me. Not only were the audio guys putting forth a new technique not in wide use (or use at all), they did not seem to offer any independent analysis showing their method worked as claimed. It's possible I may have missed such testimony but I would have expected to see a reference to it in the news accounts.

    To show their method worked as well as the more established ones they could have provided comparison studies of test audio samples. If they could duplicate the results by comparing a series of unknown audio samples by both methods and derive the same results or by performing parallel tests with another facility, the Prosecution may have prevailed.

    Zimmerman is responsible for Trayvon's death. Whether he will be held criminally responsible is another story based on Florida's laws and the jury's interpretation of those laws.

    My opinion is that a combination of racial profiling, cop wannabe-ism, and an irresponsible gun owner's overinflated "might makes right" ego delivered the death penalty for WWB.
