The prosecution in the George Zimmerman trial began its closing argument Thursday with this premise: that George Zimmerman made assumptions, and those assumptions led to the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin.
"[Martin] is dead because another man made assumptions," prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda said. "That man assumed certain things. He’s dead not just because the man made those assumptions -- because he acted upon those assumptions. And unfortunately ... because his assumptions were wrong, Trayvon Benjamin Martin no longer walks on this Earth."
The defense will offer closing arguments Friday morning.
