    Evidence released last week in the second-degree-murder case against George Zimmerman shows four key witnesses made major changes in what they say they saw and heard the night he fatally shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford.

    Three changed their stories in ways that may damage Zimmerman. A fourth abandoned her initial story, that she saw one person chasing another. Now, she says, she saw a single figure running.

    And this:

    Witness 6

    This witness lived a few feet from where Trayvon and Zimmerman had their fight. On the night of the shooting, he told Serino he saw a black man on top of a lighter-skinned man "just throwing down blows on the guy, MMA-style," a reference to mixed martial arts.

    He also said the one calling for help was "the one being beat up," a reference to Zimmerman.

    But three weeks later, when he was interviewed by an FDLE agent, the man said he was no longer sure which one called for help.

    "I truly can't tell who, after thinking about it, was yelling for help just because it was so dark out on that sidewalk," he said.

    He also said he was no longer sure Trayvon was throwing punches. The teenager may have simply been keeping Zimmerman pinned to the ground, he said.

    He did not equivocate, though, about who was on top.

    "The black guy was on top," he said.

    That's why witnesses are interviewed ASAP.
    The more they think about it, the more unsure they become.

    I also think...if ALL of them have changed their stories that someone got to them and either bribed them to change their stories or threatened them if they didn't. I could see 1 person changing their story...but ALL of them? Nope....don't believe it!

    studies have shown witness testimony immediately after the event is just as worthless as years later. Didn't one of the witnesses swear the man on the bottom of the fight was wearing a red shirt? no one was wearing red anything...

    It might help if you showed the entire jacket......(sorry, not sure how to post just the image). Looks mostly red (or orange) to me! Either way, the witness could have seen it as red..........

    I will never understand why the right is so commited to protecting Zimmerman.
