based on the evidence presented i think it's pretty clear he's guilty of being a complete dumbfug and then consciously deciding to shoot a kid because of the situation he chose to put himself in

I have a feeling that is isn't innocent, but I don't think that they will be able to prove murder 2.

either/or I guess. Im just interested in interpretations of the case as it has unfolded so far. I cannot for the life of me see why everyone is saying the prosecution is performing poorly.  So i want to see what everyone else thinks

I personally think he's guilty of aggravated manslaughter at minimum.  Based on FL law, is he guilty of 2nd degree murder, idk?  I have not heard enough of the testimony/evidence to make an informed decision.

 

What is the jury going to think?  I think there's about a 50/50 chance he gets convicted.

I'm absolutely certain he's guilty.

I'm also fairly certain he will be deemed not guilty because its florida.
