Should jury see crime scene reenactment?

George Zimmerman's defense team wants to show the jury a 3-D animation simulating events from the night of Trayvon Martin's shooting based on witness testimony. Mark Geragos, Sunny Hostin, Danny Cevallos and Marcia Clark discuss whether or not it should be shown to the jury.

Watch Randi Kaye's report about how the animation was made:

    Absolutely not, it was a big mistake from the judge to allow this animation. am sure that the jury was considered this as a facfual evidence. the judge was intimidated by the behavior of mr wes

    No, after listening to pundits from the state and defense it appears it's no more than a cartoon of what they believe had happened. It cannot be corroborated. It's fairly certain they will use it during the defense closing argument.

    Why did the judge ignore Deft's proffer of Prosecutor's non-disclosure of information they had since January; and
    Why was Angela Cole allowed to sit in court, in front of Travon Martin's mom, with an open laptop computer? Normally, not even newspapers are allowed in the court room.

    No, this video is fictional and favors what George Zimmerman said and not that of Trayvon Martin this is (one – sided). If it was allowed then an (reenactment) should be made to describe what Trayvon Martin (said and done) when he was (walking and talking) to his friend on the phone Rachel Jeantel from the convenient store to when he was being followed. This is cheating, (Cheaters) who do anything to have their way with everything and not the way of the victim (fair and justice).

    Just seen the animation for the first time and its not actually accurate. In police video Zimmerman has said that when he was confronted by Martin, that he (Zimmerman) reached for his pocket to get a cell phone just before he was hit by Martin. That to me is the turning point, when Martin felt fear he was going to die because he didn't know what Zimmerman was reaching for. Hows he suppose to know Zimmerman was reaching for a phone and not a gun or a knife.
