Closing Arguments In George Zimmerman Trial Appeal To Emotion, Justice

The jury begins deliberating in Zimmerman's second-degree murder trial.

Prosecutor Bernie De La Rionda during closing arguments on Thursday:

"A teenager is dead. He is dead through no fault of his own. He is dead because another man made assumptions. That man assumed certain things. He's dead not just because the man made those assumptions, [but] because he acted upon those assumptions and unfortunately because his assumptions were wrong, Trayvon Benjamin Martin no longer walks on this earth."

"I had a dream that a witness would not be judged on the color of her personality but on the content of her testimony."

During his closing arguments, Mark O'Mara, defense attorney, said Zimmerman's injuries weren't minor.

"This is the person who attacked George Zimmerman."
