Prosecution Can't Use Race As A Factor In Zimmerman Case

The judge in the murder trial of George Zimmerman — who has been charged with killing Trayvon Martin — says the prosecution can use several terms the defense wanted to exclude. In talking about Zimmerman, prosecutors may use the terms "profiled," "vigilante," "wannabe cop" and that he "confronted Trayvon Martin." Opening statements begin Monday, but the court still has to rule on some key testimony: Which, if any, audio experts will be allowed to testify about who is heard calling for help on a 911 tape.
