Is George Zimmerman telling the truth?

Is George Zimmerman telling the truth?

Prosecution witness No. 9 in the George Zimmerman trial, Selen Bahadoor, lived in the community where Trayvon Martin was shot.  She testified Tuesday to what she says she saw and heard that night. Has her story changed since she first told police what she saw?  Jane Velez-Mitchell and her panel of experts debate her testimony.  

Zimmerman, a former neighborhood watch captain, is charged with second-degree murder for shooting 17-year-old Martin on February 26, 2012. He told police he was pursuing the teenager because there had been a rash of crime in the area. A conflict ensued, and Zimmerman said he was forced to kill Martin in self-defense.

Jury selection in the George Zimmerman trial began on Monday.  George Zimmerman says he shot Trayvon Martin in self-defense but he is facing charges of second-degree murder.

The trial could focus on key 911 calls that were made that night. There were several calls made to 911 and a few of them caught someone screaming for help.  But was it Zimmerman or Martin calling for help? Experts from both sides have disagreed on who it was and we are waiting for the judge to decide whether these experts will be allowed to testify.
